Well the thing is, I gave making nail polish a shot and seem to have created the color I had been looking for most of the year and that I'm sure I'll be wearing a lot this autumn!
Couldn't believe it worked out so well and have been staring at it ever since.
What I was also surprised by was how easy it was to make!
It takes a couple of super easy steps and you can create the shade that you've always wanted and could maybe never find or get your hands on!
Get a transparent nail polish, the colors you want to mix and a toothpick to mix it with.The color should be in powder form; either get a pigment or pick some eyeshadows and scrape them off on a piece of paper. If you've scraped your eyeshadow dust off, make it as fine as possible by pounding it a bit more so that it breaks up in smaller pieces and ends up being like fine dust.
You can pick ONE or MORE colors to play with and mix around.
Pous the powder into the polish bottle either with a small funnel or with an improvised funnel by bending a piece of paper in the middle and using it as a slide.
Use the toothpick to mix it in the beginning and then shake it. It's much easier to mix it by shaking, especially with just pigments.
In step 4 you can just sit back and admire the gorgeous shade you have created
Have you ever tried making your own polish? How did it work out?
