I cannot apply black nail polish to my nails. It just doesn’t work.
Most of it ends up on my cuticles and it never looks neat enough.
Same with the banana yellow colour I have. You need 15 hundred coats to make it look any good and I just don’t have the patience to keep my hands still for that long.
Somehow these unusable colours keep finding themselves into my nail polish collection. I blame the $2 price tag and the 3 for $5 sales that all my local chemists seem to have. (I go to the chemist a lot at the moment.) A gal only has so much will power.
So inspired by my polka dot jars, which I’ve just found out I never actually blogged about.
So quick tutorial – I used nail polish and hole punch protectors and you combine the two to create polka dots on jars.
We have a rather large collection of empty jars. They’re just so practical! I use them for my dyeing but also for storing things on my desk, but they have to be pretty.
I didn’t have a plan, I just turned the jars over and poured nail polish over them. Very simple but effective with the right combination. Really how can you go wrong with black and pink.
My desk is messier than usual because I’ve been busy. As the Pogona needed 20 stitch markers I thought I’d better make some more. And of course some earrings had to be made as well.

You’re a clever cookie! I have a lot of nail polishes that fit into this category too – mostly the ones that take forever to dry and therefore will always look dreadful as I am too impatient not to use my hands while I should be waiting … -____- Your jars look great though and I also really like your stitch markers! ^___^
I can never keep nail polish on. Usually its when im playing playstation when i paint my nails.
But nail polish is so versatile.
Those are some good ideas!
I just got rid of a bunch of mine by taking them to work- my coworkers snatched them all up in one day!
Maybe you could use those kinds of colours for nail art if you’re into that 🙂
