DIY Nail Polish: Green Peas

A crafty side of me kicked in again this week, I have a clear nail polish that is just sitting unused at the back of my drawer, so I was like, hmmm what can I do to you?
So I decided to play around with colors! Using my Simply Natural's pigment in Fern which is a gorgeous matte leaf green (can't you tell I have an impulse buying for green pigments?), I made a green polish by mixing it with the clear polish.
I am not confident enough to make the whole batch and make a new polish, or as nail gurus out there say, "Franken" it (from Frankenstein), so I just mix on each application.
What I did was I pour a little bit of clear polish on a container, sprinkle some pigments (small amount is usually enough) mix it with a brush, and apply directly on nails.

I named it GREEN PEAS because it reminds me of them and this is how it looks like
Thanks for reading, now let me go back to my late late night sweet hot tea.
Ciao shuga!

Good Content.

Today while I was surfing the Internet, I came across several interesting articles talking about UV nail lamps and how to use
them with gel nail application. I also happened to visit this site Gel-Nails and found amazing variety of UV lamps in American and European style. Some of these lamps also have a timer and a digital display which I think is really cool. And what’s best above all is the super discount that you can get which is 50% and more also for most of the products.

I guess this is a great offer to grab as there is free global shipping also over a minimum purchase order. So if you are looking out to save money after having spent on gel nails, then check out the great offers here. Maybe you may find much more
than what you are looking for as I did.
