I saw a photo on Pinterest (sorry I don't have the link as I forgot to Pin it!) which explained you can fix this with some nail polish - I couldn't believe I hadn't heard of this before now! So I decided to try this out for myself to see if it works.- AND IT DOES!
This is so easy and quick to do that really you don't need much of a tutorial for this but I thought I would give a super quick one just for you.
- Barbie (or similar doll)
- Nail Polish (any colour)
Step 1: Hold the doll or place her on a piece of paper on flat surface (I tied the dolls hair up so out of the way!)
Step 2: Using the nail polish paint an outline of a swimming suit and then completely colour the suit (you can do one side of the doll at a time if it is easier)
Step 3: Place the doll on all fours, as in the photo below so that the polish can dry easily.
Step 4: Once dry do another coat (this may be sufficient depending on the polish - if not add a 3rd coat after allowing time to dry)
Step 5: Barbie doesn't look naked now and is ready for the child to dress if they wish!
You could even add some glittering stickers to make the swimming costume look more jazzy. I have even seen online that people have used Sharpie pens to cover Barbies nakedness.
