I've got a bright and cheerful manicure today on this miserable grey and rainy Sunday here in England! I've really wanted to get back into nail art so I had lots of arty goodies arrive this week. One thing I'd wanted to try for ages was to make some sheer tints, so I ordered some bottles of clear polish and today I finally got around to making some.
These are SO simple to make! You just pick a nail polish and drop a few drops into the clear polish. You then roll it about in your hands to mix it. Some polishes were stubborn and I had to mix with the brush. Mixing balls would probably have made the mixing a bit easier. I then tested the tint on a white false nail and added a drop or two more if they were too sheer. That's it. Simple and cheap! I got these bottles from Amazon for under £4 shipped and the polishes I used were from a range of brands including Models Own, Ciate and Sinful Colors.
I then couldn't wait to use them for some nail art. This is such an easy and fun look. I painted a base colour of white (Sinful Colors) and then once dry, I painted each colour onto every nail in a random way. I changed placement on each nail but always put the same colours next to each other to give a sort of rainbow effect.
What do you think? I imagine I'll be having lots of fun with these tints and will probably make some other colours too :)
