DIY Heart Glitter Nail Polish

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

I know I know....Valentines Day is not for like a month and a half away...BUT one of my new years goals was to get organized and not procrastinate, so here is a little early inspiration.

Bottom line is you either love Valentine's Day or you don't. I love it and I love partaking in all the hallmarky-ness about it. I still remember being in grade school and trying to find the perfect Valentines that I would pass out to all my friends and hoping mayyybe that boy would send me one of those little candy telegram things....never happened ha!

To make your own Valentines Day inspired nail polish you will need:
  • Clear nail polish
  • Martha Stewart heart glitter
Empty out half the bottle of clear nail polish to make room for the heart glitter. Add a TON of heart glitter into the bottle. Shake it up and you're done! So easy.


Here is how it looks straight out of the bottle...

If you like a more uniformed look, paint a coat of clear nail polish, apply three hearts to each nail (two on pinky) and then top with one more coat of clear polish.

Have fun painting!

So cute!! Love this idea!!

iris said...

Clear nail polish is great for all sorts of custom things. You can paint your nails with acrylic paint you get at a craft store, then coat it in clear polish and you have fancy new nails!

Love the 2nd look. Does the Martha glitter 'melt' in the polish after a bit? She makes the prettiest glitters but Im worried about all the colors coming off and getting icky like some do.

Emily said...

What do you do with the other half of the bottle of polish? I would hate to just put it in the garbage.
