Been Playing

Making my own Indie Polishes

Hello all, while this month is a super busy one, with the 30 Days of Colour Challenge, and the many reviews I have to share with you all, I somehow managed to find the time to start making my own Indie Polishes!
The main reason for this is I really wanted a 'one off' polish especially for my Mum's birthday which would have been on the 24th. If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that I do a special nail art as a tribute to my Mum, so this year I wanted to do something different, but still special. 
All the items I bought from Micamoma, speedy tracked delivery and packaged really well. I didn't take any photos as in all the excitement, like a kid at Christmas I just wanted to get mixing. Bottles, suspension base, powder mica, glitters and more, so I started! I really didn't think I'd come up with so many beautiful polishes. So I thought I show you all what I've made. I also made another polish especially named after my gorgeous first Granddaughter Millie-Rose 

Love Me Like You Blue.

Posy In Pink.
Purple Berry Smoothie.
 Green On Me.
Bordeaux To Go.
Steel Blue Waters.
Bling Ring.
One Last Sparkle.

I used some empty polish bottles that I had cleaned out, as well as the bottles that I bought, that's why they are different shapes and sizes. The ones I purchased are flat round with white caps.
The one off special polish I will not be sharing until the 24th, so a few weeks to wait!
I love how each of these have turned out, the finishes are super pretty as are the colours.
Bling Ring is a scattered holographic topcoat that I applied over Steel Blue. One Last Sparkle is a blue and silver holographic glitter that I applied 2 coats over Bling Ring. The sparkle and holo-ness is awesome and so hard to capture. I also had a feeling these would stamp, so with my nails painted a deep burgundy colour I tried...

Pinky stamped with Steel Blue Waters, ring finger stamped with Posy in Pink, middle finger stamped with Bordeaux To Go and lastly Green On Me. 

Overall I had fun making these and super happy I've made a versatile polish, for painting or stamping! I really hope you like this post.
Off for a well earned cuppa, if I can lift the cup after all that shaking!!
Stay safe and much love....
