I like to buy cheap little polishes to mix with. That way if I don't like it I can toss or dump it out. These polishes are often under pigmented, but have a base color to start with.

I then chose my loose mineral powder pigments or make up, clear polish, glitters, and polish colors to mix in.

I use my cuticle scoop to add and mix the powders. They powders need to be mixed in well and I sometimes need to thin it with the clear polish. Add a little at a time until you get the color you desire. For a few colors I may have to add a drop of colored polish or even a glitter polish to get the look I want.

Today I started with a sheer peach pearl color and added a pinch of dark brown pigment, a shimmery rose glow powder, a drop of red, 4 drops of clear, and 6 drops of pink glitter polish. Some loose glitters can melt and clump up.

These are more appropriate for fall now. A rosy nude with subtle glitter, an antique gold, a dark burgundy brown, a dark purplish burgundy, and a semi translucent bronze with gold and brown glitter.

This last one was made for adding a darker gradient to the tips. I really liked it paired with this silver gray here.

The burgundy colors were mixed because I did not have an oxblood polish. I like both in their own way. The antique gold was a happy accident found by mixing a sheer gold shimmer with olive eye shadow powder. I think it also looks great with a glitter over it.

It seems all my favorite manicures are in silver.

I resisted posting the nail art as challenges, but it is geeky and took me awhile. As I am trying to learn to do it well it is taking up all my crafting time.

When I was embroidering my garden gloves my fingers were starting to suffer. I put on the right glove to finish the left otherwise it never would have been finished. The thin but sturdy leather allowed me to push the needle through the heavy drill fabric that was meant to protect you from thorns and it gave all my fingers gripping power. I have tried adhesive thimbles for quilting as I hate traditional thimbles, but only the glove seems to be comfortable and works.

I decided to redo it with gold studs and black as the base color. I also used a gold and copper glitter polish I picked up yesterday.

My son made the shell casing in class this week.
