Irrespective of whether we have 100 different nail polish colours, we want more. Every time a new nail polish range is launched, we are so very tempted to buy all of them, because just like bags, shoes, clothes and everything in a girl’s wardrobe, she can’t have enough nail polishes too!

But since you’re under lockdown and can’t order more nail polishes for a while, why not make one (or 100) at home instead? Today, we’re gonna teach you how to make your own glitter nail polish at home in under five minutes. Nope, we’re not joking. Take a look…


You will need:

You will need:

  • Loose, craft glitter in any colour of your choice (pick the non-toxic variants and avoid those chunky particles)
  • A bottle of clear nail polish like the Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish - Top Coat
  • A nail polish colour that’s similar to the shade of your glitter

Step 01: Start by adding a few drops of the nail polish colour to the clear nail polish and give it a good shake until the two colours have blended. This will prevent your nail from peeking from under the nail polish after application

Step 02: Now, take this craft glitter on a piece of paper that has been shaped like a funnel and pour it through it into the nail polish bottle

Step 03: Again, close the lid and thoroughly shake the bottle to allow the glitter to mix with the polish

Step 04: Allow this new glitter polish to rest for a few hours until the polish settles down to the perfect consistency.

Step 05: And now, your new DIY glitter nail polish is ready to be applied!
