Did I just make my own prism?

What do you think? Does it look like a sally hansen prism? I saw on another blog that old loose eyeshadow or pigments can be used to mix in polish, I'm sorry I don't know whose blog it was, if it's you please let me know so i can credit your genius, so I added this old pigment that I've had probably almost 10 years and I don't ever use it so I had some clear and voila! I really like it and I love the fact that I recycled some old eyeshadow, have you guys tried this yet? The pictures are two coats and a coat of seche. I think I will name it homemade prism, or maybe not that kinds sounds cheesy lol. any suggestions on names?





This is an inside light shot, see how it looks green...

Thats amazing that you made that from eye shadow!! It looks really good:D Amazing how it looks brown then green! Looks definitely like something you would buy. The name isnt cheesy, its your creation so name it whatever you want~

So amazing! So you just added eyeshadow and clear polish or did you pick a colored polish? I am soo jealous. This looks amazing. I have tons of old eyeshadow I could play with! Great idea!

This is great. Thanks for sharing. :o)

And just out of curiosity, and well, so I don't mess it up if I manage to try this myself; did you use a new bottle of clear or was there space in the bottle? If so how much? And, how much eyeshadow did you add?

I would probably use the opposite end of my tweezers (end I grip) to transfer the eyeshadow into the nail varnish bottle. Roughly on that kind of scale or something similar I might have handy would help me a lot thanks.

Also, did the eyeshadow fall to the bottom gradually, or did it just sit on the top of the varnish, so then it would be a little harder to mix the two?

Sorry for all the questions, and thank you so much in advance for answering. :oD

@slayer3 the bottle of clear had a little over half left and I just made a funnel out of paper and poured some in and shook it up, I would say do a scoop at a time and then shake and maybe swatch and then add more depending on the color u want or like, I think I might have put to much because it does separate later you can see the eyeshadow on the bottom so I'm assuming with these you probably have to shake up before each use.

I will definitely be trying this for my next mani. :o)
