I'm into nail polish. Despite the fact that it does not stay on my fingers for more than 24 hours without chipping off.
I love it. I currently have at least 30 different nail polishes. It's a sickness.
Anyways, despite having all these different shades, I find myself obsessing over new shades that I simply must have. Don't ask me why...
This week, I needed my nails to be pale blue. So I went to Walgreens and the closest shade they had was by Essie. I think Essie is beautiful and if I weren't so frugal-or cheap, whatever-I would totally buy a bunch of it.
But as it is, I just cannot justify paying more than $8 for one single bottle of nail polish.
So, I saw this cool idea (like, duh, why didn't I think of that) at Crafty Minx blog to mix your own nail polish.
I like this Sally Hansen Xtreme wear. It's like a buck or two and you usually only need one coat.
I started by adding just a few drops of blue to the white, then shaking for several minutes and adding more drops until I reached the shade I was looking for.
I love this blue! Yes, it seems kind of Easter-y, but I'm calling it my New Year's nail polish. I might even add some glitter later on. Maybe on the tips.
Oh, my hand looks so weird without my ring. Have you ever forgotten to put your ring(s) back on after doing something and just felt like something was missing without it? I was forming hamburger patties last night and totally forgot to put it back on. Well, I know that was a riveting story, but for real--I can't wait to get home and get my ring back where it belongs.
Hey--go mix some nail polish. It's fun :)
