Okay ... on to the tutorial now !
What do we need :
a clear polish
a pigment of your choice
a paper towel
a tiny scoop ( 0.15cc )
a mixing palette
a top coat
a false nail for a color test (optional , you can use your own nail ofcourse :D)
a base coat
The color i'm going to use : Aromaleigh Looking Glass (Wonderstruck)
Let's start !
Step 1 : Take the palette and put 1/4 tbsp of clear polish in it ( this is plenty enough to do your nails with 2 coats , even 3 coats ! )
Step 2 : drop 1 scoop with pigment or shadow into the polish
Step 3 : take a toothpick or the brush of your clear nail polish ( this is what i do ) and mix together . Don't do this too fast , you don't want any airbubbles into the polish !
The consistency should look something like this ...
Step 4 : Apply one coat on a false nail (or use your own nails) and this is how it looks after 1 coat
And after 2 coats ....
Now polish your nails !
Use 1 layer primer , 1 layer Base Coat , 2 layers of your homemade polish and finish with 1 layer Top Coat.
Clean your polish brush and palette with remover . Use cleaning gloves after your nails are completely dry , to preventing any removal of polish on your nails when using the remover. Put some remover into the palette and clean the brush , use a paper towel to remove the color product , repeat this until the brush is clean. Now you can put the brush back into your bottle of clear polish !
After 1 layer :
And after 2 layers and Top coat :
You can see the glitter showing up on the nail , the picture doesn't show it very well , but in the sunlight it's absolutely gorgeous !
