Tip: New Nail Polish from Eyeshadow

Nail polish made from eyeshadowMake some new nail polish from your unused eye-shadows. I took a cocktail stick and scraped some onto a piece of paper then poured the powder into a bottle of clear nail varnish. I gave it a good mix (I used a plastic date 'fork').
I added a mixture of two colours until I got my desired shade. I wanted a pale pinky/lilac for my toes.
It works perfectly. And when I think of all the eye-shadows I have I am now spoilt for choice, plus all I need buy now is clear polish which is very cheap!

There is no such thing as 'natural nail polish'. Even the ones available that tout they are all natural water based polish are fibbing because they still contain plastics/chemicals of some sort.

Here are two companies that sell them (be sure to read the plus' and minus' and disclaimers they provide too):
