How to Make Your Own Nail Polish

Annie Robinson

Looking for a new shade of nail polish to add to your collection? Try making it! Making
your very own nail polish is easy, fun and fast. Read on for directions….

What You Need:

  • Old eye shadow (any colour)
  • 1 bottle of clear nail polish
  • 1 small plastic bag
  • A piece of paper
  • A spoon
  • A drop of water (optional)


  1. Take your old eye
    shadow and pour it in the plastic bag. Bash the eye shadow with the back of
    your spoon until the shadow is powdery.
  2. Take your piece of
    paper and curl it into a cone shape so you can filter the crushed eye shadow
    into the nail polish bottle without spilling any.
  3. Screw the lid back onto
    your nail polish and shake it well so the crushed eye shadow powder and clear
    nail polish mix.
  4. Add a droplet of
    water if the nail polish and eye shadow powder do not mix well.
  5. Leave for 2-3
    minuets and you’re ready to give yourself a manicure!
