When it comes to nail polish, I often have a hard time finding colors that suit me. I feel that I can always find a ton of bright, pretty colors, but my red hair and pale skin always have me wishing for earthy greens and browns, which just aren’t as abundant in nail colors. I recently discovered a way to make my own nail polish in any color, and it totally blew my mind. It’s so easy! All you need is clear nail polish and eye shadow!
Just break up the eye shadow until it’s in powder form, funnel it into the clear nail polish, mix it up with a toothpick or needle, and then shake!
You can mix different colors of eye shadow together to create your shade of choice. I made two shades of green and a brown — I’m in love!
It’s so much fun and so, so simple. This is also a great way to make use of those old or broken eye shadows that you’ve probably forgotten about. One thing to note: shimmery eye shadow = shimmery nail polish, so if you’re more of a classic shiny or matte type of person, steer clear of iridescent eye shadows for this. Have fun!
