Have you ever heard of ‘Franken’ nail polish? Franken nail polish is basically being able to personalize your own nail polish by experimenting with mixture of nail polish, glitter and pigments . The whole idea behind it is to create your own unique nail polish that can’t be replicated or you can attempt to replicate a colour you saw in a magazine, or online that was out of your budget.
We decided to do a franken nail polish tutorial using eyeshadow (which is considered as pigment). Here are the few basic things you will need:
– Transparent nail polish
– A toothpick (or something to scrape the eyeshadow with)
– Paper (preferably one you want to recycle!)
Here is where you can experiment in terms of texture. Add a little bit of the eyeshadow pigment and shake the bottle until it mixes well. You can tell just by looking at it. If it doesn’t become a dark enough colour and it slightly see through, continue to add pigment (unless you want just a tint of the colour)
Once your happy with the colour, just paint in on your nails. Just paint it like you normally do. It may seem slightly thicker than usual nail polish, but that is due to the pigment. Do paint it layer by layer, allowing it to dry before you do the next one.
This was just a rough idea of what can be done. You can always add and mix different colours, and even glitter! The possibilities are endless! Who knew finding the perfect colour you’ve been looking for was as easy as this?
