Step 8: Final photos + comments
The glitter polish turned out great as well - just make sure to do a clear top coat over it because craft glitter can be a little chunky. You don't want the glitter snagging on your clothes/hair/pets/whatever. :D
Now we'll have to see how long it lasts! I ended up doing a base coat of the purple polish I made, covering that with the gold glitter polish, and topping that with a clear top coat. I'll report back! It's held up well so far and I've had a hot shower and washed a load of dishes since yesterday.
POLISH UPDATE: It ended up lasting four days, which is not bad for cheapy nail polish. I think I could have worn it longer - I only had one tiny chip on my right hand! Came off pretty easy too, but the glitter is always tricky. :)
COMMENT UPDATE: A few of you have suggested putting either a bb or a glass bead into the bottle to help the polish get mixed. I'm going to do this myself and I think anyone who tries this should do it too. I hadn't thought of it! :D
