You can smell like a zombie the whole month of October celebrating Halloween at work! This instructable is entered into the Halloween contest, and if you think it is worthy of your vote I appreciate you voting when the vote button is available, thanks!
I will be sharing how to make your fingernails glow in the dark and smell like a Zombie, as well as . . . how you can use this method for greeting cards or tags! That is the part I am excited about! The glow in the dark is my cheaters version of guys who make such great crafts using real lights ( knowing how to wire them )! I have not mastered that yet but I will . . . someday. Let's get started!
Step 1: Supplies
Glow in the dark paint
Demeter Thunderstorm or Zombie perfume or cologne here: http://www.demeterfragrance.com/
Nail polish remover
Cotton cosmetic pad
Step 2: Apply First Two Coats
Step 3: Draw Image
You can either dip the toothpick into the glow in the dark paint or you can place a small dab of the glow in the dark paint on the lid and draw the image on your fingernail using the toothpick.
I drew the design onto my fingernails using the tooth pick.
You may need to apply more than one application.
Allow plenty of drying time before using a clear top coat.
The glow in the dark paint is not suitable to mix into the nail polish at least that is my experience using my clear coat polish.
Step 4: Turn Lights Off
Turn off the lights and watch them glow!
Step 5: Mix Perfume With Clear Coat
Place a dab of clear coat on the lid and add a drop of the cologne or perfume to the clear coat and mix with a toothpick. It helps to do it this way to see if the two will mix together to avoid ruining the whole bottle of clear coat polish. If it mixes well and you are happy with it you can add ten drops to the nail polish and shake well.Add more drops of cologne if you want more scent. Please note that not all cologne or perfume will scent nail polish or mix well with it. You just need to experiment with it. By the way you can't smell the scent until the nail polish is completely dry on your fingernails.
Paint one nail and let it dry.
If the scent is not strong enough add another drop of perfume to the top coat and mix well.
Paint the rest of your fingernails and dry thoroughly.
Apply a second coat if desired.
Step 6: Card
Here are pictures I took of a design I drew on a card stock. I colored in the design using scented nail polish and glow in the dark paint. This is just one of many projects you can do using this method.
Step 7: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
I love to wear scented nail polish and I can't wait until my daughter arrives . . . hopefully in a week or two, maybe she will do her art magic on my nails! I might even add a picture if she does. I will be adding glow in the dark and scents to more of my craft projects. I can see myself making greeting cards, bath products, painting scented crafts as well as wearing my new favorite scent collections, Rain and Sunshine!
