Polish Spam – nail polishes we made ourselves :)

Here’s a WHOLE lot of polishes we have made – I won’t write a lot of info down: and we are still having fun and testing these. For example, my favourite blue can’t have a top coat put on without killing the holo, and making it a completely different polish. Which is a) kinda cool and b) super annoying, so back to the drawing board with that one!

Light silver holo – this is three coats.


Under light: all these ‘lit’ photos were taken with a really yellow light, which was all I had at the time to work with. So I’ve had to play with the colours to get the polish looking like it actually does, so if my fingers look extremely weird, that’s why!


I added a Christmassy Franken to the top..red, holo silver and gold glitters.


Under lights – this was one coat of the franken over the two silver coats


A funny Kleancolor franken..


And another!


This was Green Opal, which I showed here – my mother added black pigment to this to give it the layered look all the time. Very pretty I guess now it should be called Dark Green Opal. heh


Under light…


This is Pele, so far our most successful polish, in that a lot of people seem to want this one! It’s a soft red (with orange tones) and fine scattered holographic shimmer. Looks amazing on, but not here, and I’ll explain why…


In all these photos I had broken TWO fingernails to below the quick. Ouch. But, because I wanted these done, I patched them up… then every time I took off a polish, it eroded the patch (teabag and nail glue, if anyone is interested. Works well as long as you don’t muck about with it too much!). So my nails were alternately weakening, giving way, or lumpy – and here I can only show three nails because of it. I WILL take a better photo of this polish, now that we have some nice weather!


Whole hand shot… I can kinda hide how munted my little nail is here, a bit, and give you an idea of the pretty.


A soft plummy scattered holo..


Under light.


One of my favourites, this is a dusty purple-ish colour with the holo shimmer.




HAHAHAHAHA this polish makes me laugh πŸ˜€ My mother made it, I’ve named it Howling Fuchsia. HAHAHAHA πŸ˜€


under lights: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! πŸ˜€


A nice mid blue / teal with holo shimmer, love this one.


Under lights..


And close up:


And my attempt to somewhat take the mad lemming out of A-England Tristam by making something similar:


Unfortunately, this is one that is transformed completely by top coat, which I don’t particularly want. Sure, I can spin it to say that I meant it to do that, but I didn’t, so…


I still like this polish though πŸ™‚


My Fairies in the Forest polish – green with little pink glitters πŸ™‚


under lights:


A couple of funny polishes – Good Santa


and Bad Santa. These both separated, which is super annoying and a bit baffling, but another thing to work out! And in the meantime, shake shake shake! πŸ˜€


Have a great day

  2. Wooo looks like a lot of fun :3

  3. Such gorgeous polishes!

  4. Wow yes that blue is really pretty, how did u make it

    • thank you! Which blue? All of them we made by getting our hands on some suspension base, then mixing micas, pigments and dyes together. We’ve noticed, though, that the dyes we use aren’t great when topcoat is added, so back to the drawing board to get a polish that doesn’t change when it’s topcoated! πŸ˜€ Thanks for reading πŸ™‚
