Did You Know You Can Create Your Own Nail Polish Color Out of Eyeshadow? It’s TRUE!

8 Jun
I know we all have extra eye shadow hiding under our bathroom sink or in the back of a drawer! 
When you don’t want to splurge on a new polish, just use your old cracked shadows and repurpose for your fingertips.
You can mix colors to achieve the exact shade you want.

Step  One: Prepare Eyeshadow
You’re going to turn a solid eyeshadow into powder.  About one full tablespoon of eyeshadow will be enough for all ten nails.  Smash eyeshadow until it is a lump-free, powdery consistency.
Step Two: Mix Clear Nail-polish
Pour twenty to thirty drops of clear nail polish in the eyeshadow you have already tapped into the bowl.  Now blend the eyeshadow and nail polish thoroughly to get a colored liquid.  If the mixture is extra thick or extra thin just adjust it accordingly by adding more clear nail polish or eyeshadow powder.
Step Three: Paint
Apply it to your nails promptly with a clear nail-polish brush.  Due to the air exposure, the blend can dry out very quickly.  It may be a little too thick- in that case, add some more polish, or too sheer-add more eyeshadow.
After applying eyeshadow-turn-nail polish, clean the brush in nail-polish remover to remove the stains of polish. 

Express your personality with a fun nail polish color!

Laugh Loudly…KISSES!
