MAKE DO WITH WHAT YOU'VE GOT: NAIL POLISH
With a similar concept to the Sleek Makeup pout paint I mixed up China Glaze in Aqua Baby and MUA at Superdrug shade 18 to create a lighter turquoise candy colour that suits my skin tone a little more than the original China Glaze colour. This is a really quick and simple way of creating a new nail polish that makes the most out of what you already have, without costing you a penny. It definitely saves you the disappointment of going out and spending money on a new bottle that turns out to look completely different on and has a poor colour pay off. You could even transform any colours you don't like so they don't go to waste. To create pastel colours that are perfect for the Summer in contrast with a tan you will need to add white to your chosen colour. All you need is a spare nail polish bottle, just clean out an old nail polish bottle by using a small amount of nail varnish remover and shaking it up and just repeat this a few times. Let me know if you try it out!
