I came up with this idea after a stressful week at school, and my sister/roommate loved it. It's paper Christmas ornaments decorated completely with FINGERNAIL POLISH.
Step 1: Step 1: What You Need
- 2 sheets of white paper
- 3 different colored polishes + a glitter polish
- 3 cupcake tins
- a Sharpie marker
- 2 pencils; one with a round, never-used eraser
- a plastic cup (like my Charlie Brown one)
Step 2: Step 2: Trace the Ornaments and Pour the Polish
Step 3: Step 3: Start the Letters!
Make sure to wipe off your eraser before switching to another polish.
Step 4: Step 4: Add the Ornament Details
Step 5: Step 5: Glitter Time!
The glitter polish I'm working with is WetnWild brand, because it is very watery. The thinner the polish is, the smoother it will glide on regular paper. Take your polish and paint the insides of the ornaments, around the letters. It will look dark at first, but the darker it is, the more glitter will appear once it dries.
Let the glitter layer dry for 5-8 minutes.
Step 6: Step 6: Last Minute Details and Finished!
You could also do this method with crackle polish, too, and I even made a Happy Holidays one.
So with that, Happy Holidays, everyone!
