Nail Polish Mod

I had an abundance of clear nail polish and thought I would take a stab a DIY nail polish modifications.

I started with pouring my self a nice glass of Hidden Canyon white wine. In my opinion you can’t do crafts without some kind of yummy alcoholic beverage.


Now to the craft. I have been loving all the matte nail polish’s out there, but when I heard I could make my own matte polish using only corn starch I was intrigued and figured I might was well try it.

So I gathered the ingredients needed; cornstarch and clear nail polish. I use NYC because it is cheap and dries pretty fast.


Mixed them together.


But it got a bit messy, so if I were to do this again, I would get a better funnel.

Sadly the home made one found on pinterest did not stack up. I even tried to add more corn starch to see if that would help, but it just made it worse.


All in all I did not like  the outcome of this homemade matte nail polish. It was just too good to be true. However if you have tried it and it worked for you, I would love to hear how you did it!
