Hey everyone! I was browsing pinterest the other day and found out how to make my own nail polish ornaments! I’m always interested in seeing different ways that nail polish can be used 🙂 I decided to make one, and while I’m at it, make a tutorial for everyone!
What you need:
- Any Nail Polish
- A clear ornament
- A cup with paper towel inside
Try to use a nail polish that isn’t too thick.. otherwise you’ll have trouble trying to coat your ornament!
Get your ornament, and take out the cap. It should easily come right out when you start to pull.
Pour your nail polish directly into the ornament. I used Sally Hansen’s – Red Carpet. Pour as much as you want into the ornament (I poured more then half my nail polish bottle inside!). Don’t worry, because you can pour the excess amount back into your bottle after!
Coat the entire ornament by turning it slowly on an angle. The thicker your nail polish is, the more time it will take you to coat the ornament. I actually poured some nail polish thinner in my nail polish before putting it in the ornament, which made it easier to coat the inside.
Pour any excess nail polish back into your nail polish bottle.
Put your ornament face down in a cup for all the excess polish to drip out. This is why the paper towel is useful – it saves your cup from the nail polish! I left mine on top of the cup overnight to dry.
ALL DONE 🙂
Just pop the cap back on, and you’re finished!
Here are two ornaments I made!
