A month ago, my father asked me if I wanted to make nail polish from scratch in his laboratory.
I literally jumped up and down with excitement. I wanted to know how, what chemical ingredients, everything.
Today I’m not as proficient in chemistry as I used to be, but I love roaming the store aisles picking up products and reading the ingredients to determine if I should buy Brand X or Y or the generic version. Call me a mad scientist or the geek, but I love it.
That day, I discovered that nail polish can be made by mixing ethyl acetate, mica, pigments, nitrocellulose and acetone but I bore you with the details…. check out the pics from my nail polish experiments and make your call.
What do you think of the final selection of nail polish colors I produced? It’s harder than it looks to produce a desired color.
