How To Mix Your Own Nail Polish Color

Fun  Manicure Ideas, DIY nail project, unique nail polish color, fun nail colorLast Monday I talked about how I only ever wear dark nail polish these days. Which lead to this week’s post, an experiment in make-your-own polish, and an attempt to get myself out of what some might consider a nail polish rut. (#firstworldproblems) So I went rummaging through my cavernous box of nail polish attempting to bait my inner fashionista into trying something new. But nothing really jumped out at her/me, which was when an idea started to form… why not create my own color? I saw a bottle of dark grey polish and a bottle of white, and got the idea to mix them together with a bit of purple in pursuit of a violet grey color I’d seen on recent runways. And I did it in the lid of an old water bottle, because, well, why not? I ended up really liking the results, and so I’m definitely going to be experimenting more with this in the future! I think anyone who’s ever bought nail polish has old bottles kicking around that they don’t really wear anymore; so why not try mixing some of them together and creating something entirely new? The most you have to lose is a water bottle cap full of old nail polish! If you do try this at home, I’d love to hear about it!

P.S. Here’s a little trick I use to prolong my mani by at least a week: I simply apply a new layer of top coat each night before bed, let it dry, and then my nails look totally fresh in the morning.

  1. I love this article! I made my own polish once and I agree, it was super satisfying to be able to make your own color instead of just using the same old ones we already have. Your color turned out so gorgeously – I want a bottle!! ❤ maeve
