Step 1: Clear Contacts

Take out the glue and the toothpick. Dip the tip of the toothpick in the glue and carefully spread it over the iris and pupil. Add two more layers once it completley dries.

Step 2: I Want to Paint It Black

After the glue dries, take the other side of the toothpick and paint the pupil black. Add another layer after it dries.

Step 3: Grab Your Color

Using the same side of the toothpick that you used for the black, dip it in the nail polish color of you choice and paint the iris. Paint another layer after the first one dries.

Step 4: Polishing It Off

Now, with the side of the toothpick that you used for the glue, dip it in white and add highlights to her eyes. Once it dries, dip the toothpick in clear nail polish and spread it over the iris and pupil.

Step 5: Done

Carefully take off the eye, and now you can put it on whenever you want. To keep it safe whenever your doll isn't wearing it, store it in a plastic bag.
