Mad Scientist Nails

I've had this polish on for a couple of days but never got around to taking a picture of it, so I thought I'd better get it done before I take it off. It's too pretty not to share!

These nails were a super fun experiment because I actually made my own color! My favorite "natural" color, Essie Sugar Daddy, was running low so while I was at the store I bought a new bottle of it. When I got home I was going to toss the old bottle but then I had an idea!

I figured since I was going to throw it away anyway, maybe I'd have a little fun and see what would happen if I just started mixing colors. So into the almost empty Sugar Daddy bottle I threw in some of my favorite blue, some different pinks, and just for fun I added some gold flake polish. I shook the bottle for several minutes and painted it on my nails and it was STUNNING!! Seriously, the photos don't do it justice. It's amazing. It's a perfect light purply-blue color with gold flecks in it if you get it in the right light. I absolutely adore this color. I'm sure I'll never be able to replicate it again, so I'm going to have to use it sparingly! It's perfect!

So dig through your nail polish stash, find a few polishes you don't want or need anymore and see what happens if you mix them all together! You just might love the result! :)
