Default Nail Polish Technique

Here are the instructions for the nail polish background:

Pour water into a metal disposable container* (a pie pan works great). Gently pour nail polish on the water. Lay your matt cardstock on top of the water and carefully lift up, or you can submerge the cardstock in the water and scoop up, catching some nail polish on the cardstock. Let dry and use as background.

Note: you may want to wear gloves.
Work in a well-ventilated area!!
*Do not use a styrofoam container (the nail polish will eat through the styrofoam).
Please share your art with us if you try this technique!

I have also posted instructions for the Nail Polish background technique in my gallery, under this card (nail polish cat).

oooooooooooooh that is really neat! I think I also have a few bottles of "what was I thinking" somewhere that will never see my finger nails and might be fun to play with...and some with bits of stuff suspended in them that looked neat but was a pain to clean off when I grew tired of it! now where did I stick those bottles....lol
Great card and very clever! Thanks for sharing!

I only keep clear polish these days. I'm gonna watch for a sale and get some crazy colors to try. The metallics sound luscious.

You might also want to try garage, yard & thrift sales. Sometimes you can find lovelies at them too. ~C8>

I might do the bargain store but at 116 degrees I don't do yard sales and I don't run around for bargains but I might try this in the fall when things cool down and going out is more fun. We probably won't have a day under 100 till sometime in October. Maybe I'll ask some locals if they any old polish to unload.
