Keep track of your keys with these easy DIY hacks

Keep your jangling jumble of keys in check and customize them using items you already have around the house, thanks to this super fun and simple project! With the help of some nail polish, you can create cool designs tailor-made for each key, helping you stay organized, save time, and stay stylish. 

For this hack, you will need:

  • Keys
  • Nail Polish
  • Bobby pin/toothpick


  1. Cover a key in two thin base coats of white nail polish
  1. Use a toothpick or bobby pin to easily create designs on the key. Get creative!
  1. Add a few drops of nail polish into a glass of room temperature water to decorate a key in a cool marbling design. Layer different drops of your favorite nail polishes in the water, then swirl the color around with a toothpick. 
  1. Hook a bobby pin through the top hole of the white-painted key and slowly submerge the key into the layers of nail polish, then set aside and let dry.
