Just can’t find that perfect shade of pink? No worries. Minnie from YouTube channel cutepolish shows that making your own nail polish is easier than you’d think.
Think you have every color of nail polish the world has to offer? Think again. If you haven’t been blending your own custom concoctions, you’ve only just tapped the rainbow of options at your fingertips (pun intended).
Thanks to this tutorial by the nail geniuses at cutepolish, you can create any color polish imaginable. Love the color you’ve got, but wish it was one shade darker for the fall? Maybe you need a really particular color to match your bridesmaid dress? No problem. Just gather some ingredients and let your creativity shine.
First things first: the ingredients. A few of these may be hard to find locally, but thankfully you can order most of the ingredients online and have them shipped to your house. All you have to do is Google “DIY Nail Polish Supplies” or “Franken Polish Supplies” to find all the ingredients you’re going to need at a low price.
You’ll need empty nail polish bottles and mixing balls, untinted lacquer base, color tints of your choice (in the video, Minnie combines white, blue and yellow to get a gorgeous pastel mint color), and glitter if you want to make it sparkle. Try using multiple colors of glitter to get a one-of-a-kind polish that’s sure to turn heads. The creation process is extremely simple—just combining measured amounts of the ingredients and shaking up the bottle. Check out the step-by-step below:
Not only can you create unique shades of nail polish, but you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. The recipe makes very high-quality polish that will last for a long time, and once you have the necessary ingredients in your beauty arsenal, you can create new colors any time you want!
