DIY Nail Polish!

This is a really simple and easy do it yourself project that takes only a second to make! 
I don't know about you, but I am a nail polish addict. I have a rainbow of colors and my entire medicine cabinet is full to the brim. I always have about four or five clear polishes that are nearly empty and they sit in my cabinet unused. I hate throwing perfectly good nail polish out, but when it gets to the end of the bottle its hard to reach the polish, and it becomes a pain to use. One day I was hopping around on pinterest and I found this cute little pin for making your own nail polish using clear polish and eyeshadow!
I had some M.A.C Pigment in forest green that I bought a few years ago and I never use...ever. So I decided to use it as the color for my polish! 
I love the way the color turned out, perfect for Fall!
1.// Pick out your eyeshadow and the clear polish you are going to use! 2.// I had a nearly empty bottle of Nikole by O.P.I. clear polish and half a bottle of NYC extra shiny top coat that I mixed together in the empty bottle and then I poured in the eyeshadow pigment. Use a toothpick to stir the polish and the eyeshadow together! 3.// Give it a good shake and then you're ready to paint.
Enjoy your brand new nail polish!

Hope you link up to The Pinterest Project and check out other fun pinterest projects just like mine. Last week I was featured for the number one clicked project!
