How To Make Your Very Own Nail Polish




I was browsing the internet today and I came across this amazing site. It's called "The Chick Adviser". What I found most appealing was the DIY section and this post  "Create Your Own Nail Polish". Needless to say, I am going to try this right away! I have made my own polish before, basically mixing colours together or adding a dark colour to enhance a light one, but I didn't realize you could actually add pigment like a glitter eye shadow to create a one of a kind polish. You could match that new t-shirt, dress or shoes! 

Check this out! Enjoy Beauties......

  4. Neat to see more detailed instructions.
    I have tried making nail polish out of the many mineral makeup samples I have sitting around that I do not want to wear as makeup.

    Another thing you can do is get some clear polish and a ziplock bag and just mix a bit ofd the clear polish and powder on the bag just to test a colour out and not do a whole bottle.

    The dollar store craft section is very good for small paintbrushes and little containers.

    You can also use any powder makeup you already have to make nail polish too. And for DIY lipgloss- use vaseline or a natural balm and mix the pigment in.

    1. Yes! Great ideas! I actually save up my old polish bottles just for mixing. I usually end up buying polish that looks great in the bottle but not so great on, these I don't mind pouring out to use for mixing. I love the mini bottles that I got a few sets of from x-mas, OPI comes to mind. I think it's time to visit my local dollar store!!

    1. Hi Kelly, I just happened upon Chic Advisor recently myself. It is a great site! Thanks for visiting....I am just about to post a pic of my first French style manicure that I did tonight using a pink that I mixed myself. I adore the colour but I dread that I will not be able to replicate the colour once it's gone!!

      Take care
