Bonus tips- if you want a more solid color- use white polish and tint that with eye shadow.  If you want a clear, more sheer tone, use the clear polish.  And it doesn’t matter what kind of eye shadow you use.  Use the cheapest ones you can find, if it is a color you like.  Please don’t go buy name brand eye shadow only to take a knife to it!

Go cook up somethin’ fun and Happy Polishing!

    That is a genius idea and a great way to use up eye shadow you have sitting around that was never used.

    Does the eye shadow melt – meaning does it get clumpy after awhile or it stays the consistency required?

    This is a pretty common way to make at home nail polish but the only problem with this “recipe” is that people are forgetting a base. The base is an essential part of nail polish. With out it, like in this recipe, the eyeshadow will fall to the bottom and stick. For good. A metal ball wont help with the mixture on the bottom because the mixture is far too heavy without the base to seperate it. This may last a couple of days before it starts to settle though so instead of using a whole nail polish bottle try using just enough for 1 or 2 times.
