DIY: How to make your own nail polish

I always wanted to make my own nail polish and I didn't realise how easy it was! You will need:
-clear nail polish
-eyeshadow pigment or any crushed eyeshadow in a powder form, glitter if you like it :)
-eyeshadow brush
-bottle cap/lid/container- anything you can find

Pour some clear nail polish into the container. Using an eyeshadow brush put some pigment into the container. You won't need a lot. Add some glitter if you want. Mix all the ingredients with your nail polish brush until you get a smooth mixture. Now you can paint your nails :) I used 2 coats.
I will be trying to make more colours later on this week.
