The DIY Glitter Charger:
Over the Top Tech Accessory

For Chic's Sake

This glitter iPhone charger DIY has been circulating on Pinterest — Louisa has step-by-step instructions on her blog, For Chic's Sake. It's cool — but is it practical?

The idea is a good one: in a home with multiple smart phone users, how do you keep your iPhone charger from getting mixed up with your roommate's charger? For Louisa, a bit of personalization, of course.

Here's how Louisa did it:

  • Paint your charger with a glitter nail polish. (She used Essie's Luxe Effects in "A Cut Above".)
  • Let it dry.
  • When you want to change it up, carefully use nail polish remover to erase what you've done!

I love the end result, but there are a few steps I would add. Before putting glitter of any kind on your charger, I would also carefully use masking or painter's tape to cover any electrical inputs. You don't want any glitter, nail polish or glue getting in the actual electrical. Once done, I would allow it to dry outdoors or in a garage for 24 hours to allow for the strong smell to wear off.

What do you think? Are you going to give this DIY a try?
