      Hi Victoria!

      The reason we use isopropyl alcohol first, is to disperse the pigment, allowing it to then disperse easily in the nail polish base. If you don’t do this step first, the pigment could end up being slightly clumpy, or not fully incorporated in your final mixture. I hope this helps :)

    As for nail hardener, I haven’t actually tested this yet, but I have been pondering whether adding silk powder to nail polish base would accomplish something beneficial, or if it would just use up my silk powder and make a mess.

    I’m probably going to try it soon and find out; after all, what’s the worst that could happen?
