Manicure Monday - Using Eyeshadow To Make My Own Nail Polish

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend - the weather is finally warming up here in Calgary, so even though we're stuck at our house, we could spend most of our days outside!

I have been seeing a few people that I follow recently using eyeshadows as nail polishes (and I've especially seen it with the Clionadh Cosmetics stained glass shadows because they are multichrome pigments and offer a really unique finish on the nails) and I really wanted to give it a shot! I think it turned out so pretty and I actually think the shift and finish was a little hard to capture in a picture! 

Through the month of April, the #CBBxManiMonday group is featuring pastel nails, so I used a pastel base and an iridescent multichrome for this mani!

For this week's mani, I started with a nail cleanser and base coat, then two coats of a pastel peach polish and I let the polish dried very well. Then, using a dense eyeshadow brush, I dipped the brush in to the shadow and patted it on to the nails. Then I patted it on until I was happy with the coverage making sure to get all the edges. I finished with top coat! 

I think this before and after really shows the transformation with the multichrome shadow on top! It's such a pretty shade!

I'm really happy with how this turned out and it was surprisingly easy to do! It actually opens a world of possibilities for polish shades now!

I hope you all have a great week! As always, make sure you check out Cosmetic Proof and Prairie Beauty Love for their #CBBxManiMonday for their pastel nails!

  2. I love how this looks. I use to mix mineral foundation with nail polish to make my perfect nude nail polish shade. Making your own stuff is so much fun
