making your own nail polish colors - June 4th 2014, 09:05 PM

i made nail polish today well, i got clear nail polish and added cheap eye shadow from 5below and made my own colors. i made a turqouise-ish blue, a leaf green, a purple that looks just like a magnetic polish that was really expensive, a caramel color, and a silver-gray.

it was a bit messy, but i like mixing colors. i think it would be a cool craft idea for a girls sleepover. i wish i had known you could do this when i had a sleepover for my 11th birthday.

i also made a couple by mixing polish together. that way i made a peachy pink and a dark blood red.

i enjoyed it. have you tried this out? what do you think?

send me a picture when you're done i just got some cheap dollar store nail polish since i didnt know how well it would work, but as long as you give it a good shake when you're done. it works just fine.

I've heard of doing it, but I haven't ever tried it. I'll have to try it sometime. Actually, it'll be a good way for me to use older eye shadow that I can't use on my skin anymore. Thanks for sharing this!

i agree. i read that higher quality eye shadow works better, but i used really crappy stuff that didnt work as eye shadow and the colors turned out great.

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are
