How to Make Homemade Nail Polish

It’s the end of the summer and my girls are getting bored.  Lucky for me, I came across a homemade nail polish tutorial that gave me the idea to give the girls some supplies and let them make their own custom nail polish.  It’s the PERFECT boredom buster, super inexpensive and perfect for gift giving.  Wouldn’t it be cute for the girls to make an assortment of nail polishes with a sugar scrub to give to their friends for Christmas?

One of the things I loved about this “craft” is that I gave them the supplies and let them go to town.  They are 10 and 12 years old and perfectly capable of making their own nail polish without supervision.  Score.  Here’s how:

How to Make Homemade Nail Polish:

  • Cut piece of printer paper  about 4″x4″.  Roll to make funnel.
  • Get creative and pour glitter into clear nail polish. Use funnel, or don’t.  My girls thought it was harder to use the funnel and preferred not to.
  • Mix together by putting lid back on the bottle and shake, tapping against palm of hand.
  • That’s it.
