PINCH PROOF POLISH

well...'tis the season for green!...and realized that i needed a little something something to make me pinch proof...so i decided to do up my own glitter nail polish!...

diy glitter nail polish

best part...only three supplies are needed!...grab some clear nail polish...got mine at target for .99 cents...glitter...you can use whatever size you want...but i've been eyeing up this tinsel glitter in my collection for a while...and a cake decorating tip...mine came from michaels...a .99 cent price tag again...lol...

brush a little of the polish on a paper towel...this gives the glitter some room and avoid an overflow...

grab your decorating tip...this is your funnel...i found this to be the best because a little remover won't hurt when cleaning it up...and it stays put in the bottle...

then start adding your glitter!...if you're funnel clogs up...i just use a toothpick to "help" it in the bottle...

fill about a 1/3 of the bottle with glitter...put the cap on and start shaking!...

all done!...

now you'll have a little luck 'o the polish too!...and keep those pesky pinchers far away!...but don't stop at st. paddy's day!...imagine all the times that some glitter will make it better!...

oh...forgot to say...that the glitter will keep sinking to the bottom...but just give a little shake, shake , shake before using and you'll be fine!...also...depending on what kind of glitter you use...it can turn the polish a light shade of a color...don't worry...it's so faint...you can't even tell once on your nails!...

Pure Genius!!! I love that you used a Wilton icing tip as a funnel!!! I saw this at Link Up Tuesday and was so excited to see it was you!
