It was great fun! Be sure to look at Jessy's version in the side panel! she mixed some pretty cool colors also! Thanks for stopping by and do have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
I had no idea something like this was even possible! I am definitely going to try this with old eyeshadows! Thanks for sharing :)
Thanks for commenting! I love your stuff! You are so artistic! I am sure you will dream up a color that is amazing! <br> <br>Sunshiine
thnx for the tip, it is really great idea for recycling old eye shadows =)
Thank you for commenting! Have a great day!<br>Sunshiine
This is so cool! I'm making some right now! :)
Would love to see a picture! Thanks for commenting! Sunshiine
I made this 2 days ago and it turned out really well. I didn't use it until today and my only problem was that a lot of the eyeshadow went to the bottom and I had to shake it a lot before I used it. Thanks for the great 'ible!
Thanks for sharing. It is funny that you mentioned that because I noticed the same thing when I put some on today. But I didn't mind the extra shakes when you look at the savings!
haha, wow this is a seriously cool idea <br>i got given a box of roughly 40 eyeshadow colors..some that would look better on nails rather then eyes!
That is a lot. I actually had to buy mine because I don't use make up much anymore. I have a daughter in law that is a girly girl! I want to send her some pretty nail polish and the ones I liked were 8 dollars. So that is when I thought of mixing my own and did the search. I am making her a kit to go with them. Thanks for commenting and have a super day! <br>sunshiine
haha, i'm the same, make-up isn't something i use often, but i really like this idea :)
Thanks again! <br>Sunshiine
This is great! My mom and I went to New York last week and all the nail polish was $10! I wish this had been posted last week because we ended up buying 3!
Well, you have to look at it this way, now you know and you can save all that money buying something you really love! I have not bought nail polish in a long time because I am always working in the dirt with my hands, sanding, cleaning, and the polish never last. I am glad you liked it. Thanks for commenting and have a splendorous day! <br>Sunshiine
So true! I don't put on nail polish that often anymore because playing my cello ruins my manicure but now that I am on vacation I have been doing my nails everyday.
That is great. It is nice to take time out to enjoy polishing nails. I would love to paint mine because I used to have very long natural nails. No I break them because I work with my hands so much. I should wear gloves but I don't!
Great idea! They charge far too much for nail polish and one can get clear and relatively inexpensive shadows if they don't have some leftovers. <br> <br>I'll be trying this one out. Thanks for sharing! :)
Thanks for commenting! The clear polish are much cheaper or at least that is what I found. Mixing your own colors is a plus because sometimes I can't find colors I love.<br>Sunshiine
Awesome! I have a bunch of extra eyeshadows I don't use and nail polish gets so expensive. Thanks for sharing this!
I have yet to figure out why it cost so much. I found some very pretty colors but they wanted 8 dollars a bottle! That was too much for what I needed them for. I wished I had beautiful hands because I would have posted a picture of how nice they turned out. I work with my hands all the time, painting, weeding, crafting. After I get this entire project finished I will ask my lovely new daughter to send me pictures wearing the polish with her beautiful hands! Thanks for commenting and have a beautiful day! <br>Sunshiine
