Here’s my unwanted eye shadow! Sorry, I started smashing them half way and realize I should take a pic of them first before they turn into powder! This eye shadow was previously from one of the sample box but because I don’t really use an eye shadow so I decided to sacrifices it!

*chop chop chop*

If you ask me, I would advise you to chop them finer! Coarse pieces might be difficult to blend them to your clear nail polish! YES, of course you need a clear polish to mix your eye shadow! Else how do you get your personalized nail polish color!?

Now with my whole eye shadow in the clear polish, it became more opaque!

For I-don’t-know-what reason, my nail polish turns our MATTE! hahahaha! I believe could be the “powder” that I poured in causing the texture changed. Oh well, doesn’t matter, since I can have it gloss again with my Seche Vite! V(^_^)V
