Always fumbling with your keys to find the right one on your key chain? Color code them with nail polish.

How to do it:

  • Choose 3 to 5 different colors of nail polish that will help you differentiate between your keys (ex: green for your car, blue for your garage). 
  • Remove keys from your key chain and lay them out on newspaper or a paper towel.
  • Paint a single swipe of color along the top half of each key and let dry.

Expert tip:
Let your keys can dry overnight, so you don’t have to worry about them sticking together.
