Step 1: 

Working on some sort of plastic work surface, paint your washers any color(s) you desire. Be sure to allow the nail polish to dry for at least ten minutes between layers and/or coats of polish.

Step 2: 

You can add designs to your washers using other supplies such as white nail polish or colored sharpie pens.

Step 3: 

Loop string or cord through the center of your washers as shown.

Step 4: 

You can add beads as an embellishment if you wish. Thread both ends of string through the first bead so that it rests above your washer(s).

Step 5: 

Add more beads along either ends of the string.

Step 6: 

Tie a knot at your desired necklace length and trim the excess.

Step 7: 

You're all done!
