How to consolidate your nail polish collection by mixing nail polishes together!

Ever feel like you never have the right color of nail polish in spite of hoarding a drawer full of half-used bottles? We have. Do you worry about what constantly changing nail colors might be doing to your nails? So have we. That's why we developed Pottle.

For the cost of a couple bottles of traditional nail polish, Pottle provides the ability to create an infinite amount of colors, ensuring a precise match every single time. It insures mess-free mixes every time, easy clean-up, and reuse. Easily change colors again and again without worry.

 

If your nail polish collection is getting stale and sad, you can perk it up by mixing two polishes together for a new shade. Look at your polishes with an artist's eye and select two colors that have harmonious potential. Avoid combining two dark shades -- one will dominate and the results will be minimal. Instead, choose a light shade and a dark shade. You might take inspiration from manicurist Marina Sandoval. She mixed a pale pink with beige to create the ultra-nude shade worn by Kate Middleton on her royal wedding day.

 

Step 1

Detach your Pottle

Step 2

Select wax paper to use for shade testing. Pour a drop or two of the lighter shade onto the paper. Add a drop of the darker shade on top. Mix with the crystal wand. Create a few samples, taking note of light-to-dark ratios, until you have a shade you like. Write down your recipe; for example: "Two parts dark to one part light."

Step 3

Pour an appropriate amount of the lighter polish into your Pottle. Add the darker shade to match the color obtained in your sample swatch. Mix until the polish is uniform. Test the polish on one of your fingernails and let it dry to make sure you like it.

Step 4

 Don't forget to give your shade a new name.
