Mix your own nail polish

Nail polish junkies know that all-too-well feeling of walking into the store and hearing the latest shade calling their name. Here's a fun experiment: Mix your own using a few colors you already own!

Use colors you already own and create a nail polish mixing palette with a piece of tin foil and a medium soft paint brush.
