First of all, let me apologize for the awful cuticles. I was in a huge hurry when I did this manicure! Luckily, I have a secret weapon: Q-Tips filled with nail polish remover. They snap open and the polish remover flows into the tip. The other end has cuticle oil in it to apply afterwards. They’re about $3 for 12, but well worth it. There’s a lot of intriguing nail art stuff in Japan- pricey, but interesting.
Anyway, onward to today’s franken!
Why exactly did I buy glittery purple eyeshadow from the dollar store? Because it was sparkly, that’s why! The formula is really bad (which I expected, being a dollar and all), but the colors were intriguing. I poured a little bit of Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor (left) into my muffin tin and added the pinkish purple polish. Voila! It made a sparkly shell-pearl, nice for a spring day.
Try adding eyeshadows you don’t use to your polishes to get a new color. The best way is to brush the eyeshadow into the polish and then mix. Add a little at a time, stir, and then add more. If it gets too thick, add more polish or clear topcoat to make the formula flow better.
