Alright so this is my first post here I’ve been looming in the back ground watching and stealing ideas . Finally I had a day off of work so I hoped on the bus ( I don’t drive…cars are evil..) in the pouring rain I took it like 13 blocks down the road till I saw a Michaels. Luckily I had my friend with me, she’s the one who knew where the magical store was. Anyways! Yes so I bought all of everything that was suppose to be used in resin mixing and making, we also ventured about randomly picking up anything we thought would make a awesome mold. We also took a small venture to the mall and then headed home. We stayed up till 5am playing with resin and making my poor home smell horrible and making us rather light headed ( note to self find fan and set it up next time.). We kept touching it to see if it was done or not and it took 3 days to finally dry…I’m still waiting for some they should hopefully be dry enough by tomorrow! Here’s some pretty picture for you all to enjoy! I think I will be making more of these here soon… Cheesy


Over view of them all...

Nailpolish + resin= awsome pendants..

These are awesome. Did you put those stickers in the resin or are they stuck on the back or front? I can't really tell in the pictures (plus I can't find my glasses grrr).

I find I relate more to Max & Ruby as I get older.

Curious about the nail polish/resin ones--they're so pretty, but how are they setting up? Doesn't the chemical combination of polish vs. resin catalyst degrade the resin hardening properties at all? You said some still weren't dry...

Haven't tried nail polish with resin yet, but it is really gorgeous. Can't wait to hear how it ultimately turns out!

I only have one that didn't dry and has a bubble of liquid stuck inside. What I did was I poured one layer then added up to 3 little drops of nailpolish. The one that didn't dry I added way more which I think may dry in time. After stirring it with a toothpick I let it all set for 30min then added another layer on top! As for the stickers they're inside, just poured a layer of clear let is sit 30 minutes places stickers inside then pours another layer. The ones with a little glitter just have a 3 step pour so that the polish would be sealed inside..
