DIY Iridescent Nail Polish

Iridescence is something the eye loves to see. A property of ever-changing colors, picking up on anything that surrounds it. One moment it’s catching a shade of pink…then blue…then yellow. In the light it’s like a prism…holding in every color of the rainbow.

By far one of my favorite things to look at, I wanted to share with you all this incredibly easy DIY that will allow you to create an iridescent nail polish that you can wear solo, or as a top coat. Read below to find out how it’s made!

First, you need two things: iridescent material of some sort and clear nail polish. I found some iridescent bows and decided to use those, but you could also use an iridescent candy wrapper or iridescent cellophane.

Next, cut up your iridescent material into tiny, tiny little pieces. I used scissors, but you could also try using a food processor for a quicker option.

Once you have a good amount of tiny pieces, pour them into the bottle of clear nail polish using a piece of paper or funnel.

Shake up to evenly distribute the iridescent pieces inside. I like painting the polish onto clean nails, but it also looks really cool used as a top coat over another color. Painting it on top of black makes a cool galactic effect.
