.Make Your Own Nail Polish | The Glitter Shop.
Last year I decided I wanted to learn how to make my own nail polish to sell on my etsy shop Pretty Little Nails. Silly old me thought it was just a case of getting some clear nail polish and dumping a load of glitter in there and I didn’t realise just how wrong I was! After doing a bit (well, a lot) of research I got lost in the world of suspension bases, solvent resistant glitters and pigments – it was looking to be an impossible task for someone living in the UK as no-one sells the ‘ingredients’ needed over here. I shipped in 10 bottles of suspension base and special glitters form a seller in the US and after paying an extortionate amount of money for postage I managed to create a few bottles for my shop that I was really proud of. It was so much fun, I loved it, but when my supplier stopped shipping to the uk I was a little stuck…until now!
I’ve spoken about The Glitter Shop before and their amazing value caviar beads and bags of glitter for nail art. Well now they’ve managed to save the day on the frankening front by making this polish pastime available to us Brits! They’re selling little 9ml bottles of suspension base for just £3.99 and all the glitter you’ll need to be able to make your very own polish! Simply roll up a bit of paper and stick it in the top to act like a funnel, tip in your glitter concoction, shake it up and you’re good to go! It’s so much fun and you can create the perfect polish to suit you, the possibilities are endless!
This is my newest creation called ‘All The Leaves Are Brown’ and it’s made from The Glitter Shop’s suspension base and a selection of yellow, coral and bronze (solvent resistant) glitters. I think it’s perfect for the Autumn season and I’m really happy with how it’s turned out especially when paired with a colour like Essie’s Penny Talk above. I’m currently sourcing some 15ml bottles and then it will be up for sale on my etsy shop HERE so keep your eyes peeled for that one! But in the meantime, why not have a go yourself, what are you waiting for – get mixing!
You can find everything you need to create your own glitter polish on the The Glitter Shop website HERE from just £1.99!
