We love a great piece of costume jewelry. But you know what we don’t love? The effect it can have on our skin – whether that be a slight green tinge or a completely green neck. This occurs due to a chemical reaction between your skin and the ring or a substance like lotion and the metal of your jewelry. Luckily, this isn’t harmful to your skin — just unsightly and annoying. Fortunately, there’s a hack to help you avoid it altogether, so you can wear jewelry without it turning your skin green. Cue a clear-nail polish hack that’s a total game-changer. Grab your favorite clear nail polish or topcoat — we recommend Essie Good to Go — and coat your costume jewelry thoroughly, making sure to cover every crevice of the necklace, ring or bracelet. Let it dry. Now you’ll be able to wear your costume pieces green-free! (Disclaimer: You may have to remove it with nail polish remover, and this could change the color of your jewels. But better them than you.) Read More:
