DIY This: Bright, Marbled Pots Using Nail Polish

Trust me, this project will make you want to marble EVERYTHING.

It's Bright Ideas Week on I Heart HGTV! All week, we're sharing projects to help you live a little more colorfully this fall. Show us how you add color to your home with #HGTVBrightIdeas.

Okay, confession time — I own WAY too much nail polish. I have a glass jar filled to the brim with every color you can imagine.
