Homemade nailpolish

 I stor my nailpolishes in a casket. To get a good view of what I have I rowed them up and sorted them in matching colours. By that way I can see what colours I should look for when I buy nailpolish. It is obiously that I need a yellow, a dark green, some more blue shades, purple shades and maybe a brownish colour, and a light grey. Otherwise I have most of the colours. Can't have too many right ;)
There has been a sale in the super market of Nordic Caps nailpolishes. Very cheap polish with good covering but a bit soft even after hardening. I found them in the local supermarket for only 1 € each. I bought the clear polish to make my own of old eyeshadows.
The grey polis is made of a grey very shimmering eyeshadow. I didn't use this much so this was a good way to get rid of it. The yellowish one is a golden powder to use were you need a golden highligt, so typicall the millenium. Also the semi transparent one in the middle is a highlight powder with white shimmering and blueish flakes in it. The beige polish is the matching loose eyshadow to the grey. I cant use eyshadows with this much shimmer. It makes me look older.

This is how the four ones looks on the nail. My long finger is painted with the beige one and my pointing finger is painted with the white shimmering. The coverage is not so good. You need 2 to 3 layers. The shimmering shades will be used for highlighting.
This is how the golden and the white shimmering polishes looks painted on top of black nailpolish.

You can also use glitter from the hobby stores if you would like to try to make your own polish.

  1. Jag har också nyligen köpt deras nagellack,
    kollade av en slump på adressen på flaskan...
    och det är väldigt nära där jag bor..!

    Jag har den gula, ute i solskenet syns den mycket tydligare än inomhus.
    Tror att jag ska testa den över svart.

    1. Nja, alltså de där fyra har jag gjort själv. Jag köpte genomskinliga och blandade i glitter och gammal ögonskugga :D

  4. Wow... jag äger nog 10 nagellack :D Köpte också några Nordic Cap på ICA, tyckte de var tunna i färgen, men helt klart värt 10 spänn!
    Det svarta med guld-skimmer över liknar mitt gröna lack från IsaDora "Forest", I love it! :D

  7. I'm really going to have to try making some polish myself - I love that white shimmering polish on top of the black!! But it's so dry here, my nails all broke before Christmas and will probably keep breaking right up until spring so I'll have to wait a few months! :P

    1. That is exactly what I'm experiencing. As you can see on my nails in the pictures, they have different lenghts all of them.

  8. I read this about a week ago, and obviously the idea haunted me... last night I had a dream of mixing my seldom used pale violet eyeshadow with the remains of a translucent polish. Must give it a go, perhaps with a hint of black to give it a darker shade. Thanks for the great tip!
