I’ve often wondered which lucky employees at nail polish companies get to name the colors.
Essie’s are always fun:
Need a Vacation
Bikini So Teeny
Aphrodite’s Pink Nightie
Desperately Seeking Sequins
I Eat Mainely Lobster
Nail polish is one of the few beauty products I use on a somewhat regular basis. Over the past few years, I’ve given my nails a break between polishes because I’ve become aware of how toxic cosmetics are since they aren’t regulated. I stopped dyeing my hair every other month for the same reason.
Are you wondering where I’m going with this?
I made nail polish via my birthday list, natch.
Thanks to Brambleberry, I’ve made soap, candles, perfume, lotion, and now nail polish. This was by far the easiest project.
I have no idea how toxic its nail polish base is, but I’m pretending that it’s fairly nontoxic.
All I had to do was put some colored mica, argan oil, and a small metal ball in a nail polish bottle and then fill the bottle to the top with “nail polish base.” And shake it up.
The shade is lighter than it appears in the bottle; it’s more pinky than purple-y. On the fly, here are so possible names for it:
Berry Late than Never
Berry Be Good
I’ll stop myself there.
