Do you happen to remember how, back in November, I bought a set of led lights that did not live up to my expectations, as they turned out to have a very harsh and "cold" light? I had very nearly given them up, but you, dear readers, came up with such wonderful suggestions, that I realised all hope was not lost.
One of the many good suggestions was to paint the lights with nail varnish, and as that was what I had to hand, I decided to give it a go. Now I am not big on nail varnish, as I find it too fiddly to keep my nails looking well kept, so my pink Dior varnish had been hiding in the drawer for more years than I can remember.
So I worried a bit whether Christian (Dior) was up to the job. But after two coats of the blushing pink stuff and... voilà, the lights were transformed! A few touch ups in situ and the result is even better than I dared hope for. Never mind that a few of the "jingle bells" got a bit of the blushing treatment in the process...
So, between you, Christian and me, the unpleasantly harsh lights have been transformed in to pretty, "warm" fairy lights, the kind I dreamed of all along. Thank you for the splendid advise. Isn´t Blogland just a wonderful place full of most generous people?
