Hello Lovelies.. Welcome to the post of hacks and being a Scrooge. I believe in purchasing when I am out of the item.. I do not believe in over stuffing my cabinets 🙂 Well, few of the reasons are I have less space to store, I don’t like clutter, I don’t like stuff lying around unused, and I try to save the haaaaard earned cash 😀 So this is all the nail colors I have and more than half of them are gifted 😉
You see the Maybelline Color Show Nail paints above. My then-Fiance and now-Husband had packed those along with my other gifts on my birthday in year 2014 and I still have these 😉 They were so beautiful. So of course after so many years of using them they were almost done.. Hack #1 I love the colors so much that I used to add nail paint remover, shake them well and use them again. I actually survived on them with this hack for a long extended period of time 😉 But after so many years of ceaseless exploitation of these, they were ought to get ever with evidences of some remains lying in the bottom of the bottle. I had made up my heart and mind to get rid of them this time. Yup. All set.
And then I bought L’Oreal nail color in Peaceful Pink. I loved the beautiful pink from outside but it didn’t go well with my skin color. It was overwhelming. Also, I felt it was difficult to apply as it was too watery for one coat and lil thick for multiple coats. Confusing! Well, then came hack #2. I mixed this to Orange Color Show and got an amazing color but it was still lighter for my skin so I mixed a drop or two of red nail color and I got beautiful shimmery peachy pink. Also I mixed the L’Oreal peaceful pink to my Hooked-on-Pink Color Show and I got more Nail color. This one was not so different from the original, but still the amount increased and I could make use of the Peaceful Pink.
