I figured someone else was doing this aside from myself! I bought a cheap, elastic bracelet at the thrift store. The beads were obvious fake turquoise and so ugly! I got out all my different nail polishes and painted every bead a different color, including yellow, blue and green. It is now the prettiest bracelet that I own.
I have touched up many things with nail polish including antique and vintage items that need a spot of color. I also use "furniture pencils" to touch up old picture frames or wooden jewelry and magic markers are invaluable for small touch-ups or completely changing the color of something. Then I love to sit around and look at my improved item and pat myself on the back for being so clever and talented. Lol

Thanks for this wonderful idea. I'd seen similar things done on HGTV by using a metallic pen. HOwever, the pens at Michael's were around $5. Yours is a much better solution. You can use it for chandeliers or anything.
