In the early 70’s, glow in the dark clothing and accessories have become a trend wherein fluorescent colors and black lights were out. Although glow-in-the-dark nail polish is expensive and it’s not that easy to find the color you want, making your own is as simple as mixing liquid and powder. After you’ve been through with it, it will give the desired glow when the lights are turned off. It also offers a substantial out-of-pocket savings as long as you’re wise enough to create your own nail polish.
You simple have to start the process by preparing your things. Here are things you should need in creating a Glow-in-the-Dark Nail Polish: (1) clear nail polish; (2) glow-in-the-dark resin; (3) pen cap; and (4) ball bearings. Then you can now make nail polish that will work in the dark.
Step # 1 – The Use of Ball Bearings
First, open a bottle of clear nail polish then put two to three small ball bearings in the bottle. This is what you call BB’s. The BB’s will go down the bottom of the bottle. This will serve as a support in mixing the nail polish since it may be prone to separate if not in use. On the other hand, set aside the lid and brush for awhile.
Step # 2 – Glow-in-the-Dark Resin
After step #1, pick your choice of a glow-in-the-dark resin. Open it and grab the pen cap from the bulky end and it’s time to scoop out resin from the jar.
Step # 3 – Put Six Pen Caps of Resin into the Nail Polish
Pour the scooped resin into the bottle of clear nail polish. Repeat the procedure until you have added six pen caps full of resin to the bottle of clear nail polish.
Step # 4 – Shaking the Bottle of Nail Polish
After you are done putting resin on to the nail polish, replace the cap and brush and try to shake the bottle of nail polish vigorously for around one minute.
Step # 5 – Painting Your Fingernails
Now you are ready to paint your fingernails. Just open the bottle of nail polish and begin painting a fingernail. You can now see the desired colors you have chosen whether it’s a red, green, yellow, purple or pink. You can choose any color you like.
Step #6 – The Outcome of the Glow-in-the Dark nail Polish
As soon as you are finished painting your fingernails, try to turn off the lights or you can go to a dark place so that you can see the result if your nail polish is glowing in the dark. If you are not contented with the result or rather the glow of your nail polish does not satisfy you, put some more glow-in-the-dark resin to your nail polish. Then recheck, paint some to your nails again until the glow you desired is achieved.
For a better result, use a clear nail polish that has glitter in it. Also make sure that you use a stainless steel bearing. Non-stainless steel bearing can result to a gray hue nail polish.
