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!
