A Complete DIY Guide For Creating Magical Nail Polish Shades

Why Go For DIY Nail Colors?

Well, guess what, you have endless options for nail creativity by creating custom shades of polish. Don your mad scientist goggles and learn how to make your own nail polish at home!

Materials You Need

Start by gathering your supplies: clear nail polish, a few empty nail polish bottles with mixing balls and colorant. ( Tip- Use quality supplies for a great end result!)

Let's Begin With The Clear Base

Choose a non-toxic clear coat, to limit your exposure to toxins traditionally found in nail polish. Start by filling your empty bottle with the clear nail polish.

Choose Quality Colorants

Select high-quality pigments, or colorants for your desired color. These can be mica powders, eyeshadow pigments, or even food coloring.

Quality Of Pigments

The quality of your pigments will impact the vibrancy and longevity of your nail polish.

Mix, Mix And Mix

Mixing your nail color thoroughly is the key. Use a toothpick or a mixing stick to stir the mixture thoroughly. Screw on the lid and give it a good shake for at least 2-3 minutes.

Tip For Your Perfect Colo

If you’re not happy with the color, add more colorant until you get a shade you’re happy with.
