I am a huge fan of costume jewelry because when it comes to jewelry I believe in quantity over quality (with the exception of a few pieces). However, I am not a fan of the green marks cheaper jewelry often leaves behind — my sparkly bracelets are the worst!
The green coloration is caused by our skin’s reaction to the metal and is worse in places that we perspire.
While browsing Pinterest (which I do too often), I found a helpful tip to eliminate this problem.
Tip: Apply clear nail polish to the part of the jewelry that touches your skin — super easy and cheap fix! The polish puts a barrier between the metal and your skin — eliminating the marks.
