DIY Nail Varnish Mugs?


Welcome to a brand new series! Seen as you all loved my DIY in Blogmas so much, I’ve decided to make a mini series out of it. I’m no expert, but I promise I’ll try.

Today I’m going to be trying out a DIY method that I discovered on the wonderful world of Pinterest. I’m not gonna lie, it went a little bit wrong, but OH WELL!

Nail Varnish Mug

All you need is:

  •  a mug
  • warm water 
  • nail varnish.

Firstly, fill a bowl with warm water. Then create a pattern by dropping in the nail varnish, a little at a time is best. Finally, roll your mug in the floating nail varnish.

Seems simple right? You’d be wrong.

This is my finished product:

Not quite the pretty picture I was expecting! 

My tips for getting this right would be to work out how you’re going to roll your mug in the floating nail varnish before you do it. Try and do the handle (and your hand!) last, so that you don’t end up with nail varnish EVERYWHERE. 

I’m definitely going to give this one another go, but I need to get a new mug first, oops!

Thanks for reading,
