Colour code your keys…with nail polish!

weekendprojectDon’t know what to do with that inexpensive nail polish which looks too streaky on your nails? Paint your keys with it! Colour-code your keys with nail polish

My office has two different locks with two almost identical keys. I often try to open the door with the wrong key. So I decided to color-code it by painting it with nail polish. It’s fun, easy and pretty!

I  find this simple way of painting keys extremely useful. I never unlock the wrong lock and I spend less time fumbling in my huge bag because I don’t mistaken my office keys with my house keys anymore.
