As a quick and easy gift or for a crafty night in, homemade nail polish can’t be beat! I also have it on good authority that nail polish parties are the hot ticket at Otion. We have rigorously tested our Suspending Nail Polish Base to make sure it can suspend all sizes of glitters, and we’ve found the best usage rate is 5 – 7.5% (max) for the glitter. If you add more than that, it won’t matter how lovely and light the glitter is … it’ll still sink. Our nail polish base is also formaldehyde, toluene and DBP free.
Between our glitters and micas, there are millions of possibilities for customizing nail polish base. But you’re not just limited to colors and glitters — you can add fragrance oil to our base too. Creating your own nail polish is easy: simply funnel the uncolored base into your bottle of choice (we like our 8 and 15 mL sizes), don’t forget to add your mixing bead and then scoop in your colorants and glitter.

What are your favorite wintertime nail polish colors? I’m totally jonesing on dark brown or purple colors.
That looks like a lot of fun.
One note, on the kit pages, you say that your product has a flashpoint of 24°F. Do you mean 240°?
This product does have a flashpoint of 24 degrees, it’s a fairly flammable product. Hope this helps!

Okay! I had to google the term ‘flashpoint,’ looks like I was misunderstanding it.
