Mixology


I'm always interested in the "new" trendy nail polish color, so when I saw this Taupe Nails post over at WhoWhatWear, I knew it was something I wanted to try. I couldn't find a taupe in stores (but I am nowhere near an ULTA) so I decided to mix up some colors I already had: brown, white and a little yellow. I mixed it up on a piece of tin foil and painted my nails with the brown brush. As a tip, only make enough color for the first coat because it will get tacky between coats. You can easily match up the 2nd batch of color. I'm quite proud of my resourcefulness ;)

That looks great! I remember mixing nail polishes when I was 10 or so, and it never turned out looking good like yours did :)

it seems so obvious now, but i have never thought to mix nailpolish colours! brilliant. I think im going to give it a go, though it will probably end up in a huge mess covering my whole house :)

The taupe looks amazing!

Very Smart! Not that you need the new polish (since you mixed your own), but I think there's an Ulta in Mt. P!
