I Made My Own Nail Varnish!

Sort of...

I got bored of studying so I decided to try and make my own nail varnish - as you do!

All I did was pour some clear nail varnish into a little pot and then I mixed in a couple of little scoops of a loose eyeshadow.  The one I used is a combination of two, a Barry M Dazzle Dust (Gold Green I think?) and some really old Avon loose eyeshadow (a green colour again) which I just poured in at some point!

I used one of those weird synthetic eyeshadow brushes which are quite useless for actually applying eyeshadow to your eyes!  I used the end of it to mix the powder into the nail varnish, then wiped it and used the brush side to apply it.

Obviously it wasn't the best application and I ended up with quite a few tiny bubbles (or maybe it is just powder particles?) so it doesn't look very smooth but overall I am quite pleased how it turned out!  I've got another pot of two purples I combined so I can't wait to use that and see how it turns out!


What do you think?  If you have tried this or plan on trying it I'd love to see photos!

  3. Such an amazing idea! I'm hopeless with loose powder eyeshadows (but seem to have loads of them...!) so this would be a great way to put them to good use! Your colour looks great :) x

    1. Thank you! Yes it was pretty smooth, just a few bubbles, but I'm not sure how to avoid this at the moments... better just more thorough mixing?
