Thought i'd do a quick little blog about customising nail polish, i never thought about doing it, i think my personal aim was to collect every imaginable shade of nail polish ever invented so there was no need to mix my own! but i gave it a go today after seeing a blog last night & her mixes looked amazing!
that's her site if you want to check it out!! anyway at the moment i will do anything to avoid revision so searched ebay for cheap polishes, glitters, pigment samples etc to get started. Then i remembered i have loads of nail polish i don't use so gave it a go this morning before any new supplies are delivered! so i grabbed an old Liz collinge nail colour transformer i got years ago in the shade pear shimmer, which was basically a pearl shade. I then added to it some mac violet pigment & then a little bit of mac rich purple pigment & then shook a nail polish bottle like i've never shook before! (my arm was hurting)
I immediately applied it to my nails, & after 2 coats, it was love, i expected my first attempt at a mix would be terrible but it isn't!! its like a metallic pastel lilac if that makes any sense & looks so nice, its now been applied to my toes as well!!
In other news my dog has to have an operation tomorrow & i'm unbelievably worried & when this happens i bake like a mo fo!! & tomorrow i fear will be no different, i love baking & when i do it when worried it takes my mind off my life for a bit so really helps & then i get to feed people as well which makes me happy! i may post any recipes if they're nice, i use these stress baking sessions as a tester of new recipes, no ones counting on them then if they're rubbish as opposed to if i was making them specifically for something! i can remember a few months ago when i was worrying about my manfriend, i cooked more food & cleaned more than i have ever in the space of 36 hours! i could have held a street party with amount i made!
I hope you've all had a good weekend & if anyone knows of good combinations for mixing polishes let me know i think i'm addicted now!!
Thanks for reading & i'll cya later
