I hate it when I have a green, or a red hijab and I don't have the pins to match. Straight pins are extra handy as a hijabi, but they come in a limited selection of color if you get them from the sewing store or even grocery store. One day I got fed up with my lack of color selection and thought; since I have a whole bunch of nail polish ranging in a variety of colors, why not paint my pins myself. And that is exactly what I did. This is a great and perhaps cheaper alternative to purchasing from specialty hijab stores or even online.
