How to Create a Small Painting with Nail Polish
Find a protected surface to work on.Nail polish can be much more damaging than washable paints. Cover your work surface with paper, or do your project on a notebook or journal; don't try this over a wooden table or in another area where spills will damage your furniture or floor.
Paint a background for your canvas.Choose a color from your selection and use it as your background. If you want it to dry faster, use a few drops of Insta-Dri or any other form of liquid that will dry your nail polish more quickly.
Add optional decorations.Before it dries completely, add any glitter (either nail polish form or something else) or extra decorative features, if desired.
Add layers of design to your painting.After the background dries fully, you can add designs such as stripes or polka dots. Alternatively, you can just leave it plain, if that's what you'd like.
- Try tracing a word or design after it all dries. With a pencil, write a word like "Love", "Hope", etc, or add hearts, stars, or other design elements.
- You can either use just one color for your word or a different color for each letter. Make sure you use colors that make the background, designs, and words go together well.
Let it dry once more.It may take around 5 to 10 minutes for the first layer to dry, but depending on how many letters/designs you added, it may take subsequent layers up to about an hour to dry.
You're done!Make some more of these tiny nail polish paintings and build up a collection.

- Make sure that the canvas is completely dry when you add designs, stripes, dots, accessories, etc. To check that it is dry, use your fingertip to very gently poke it. If it comes off, it isn't ready. If it feels dry, you're good to go!
- Try not to pick at the painting. The glitter or other things you may have added could come off. The nail polish could peel off and your painting could be ruined.
- Be gentle with the pencil. The pencil could very easily go through the canvas and make a hole, even when the nail polish is dry.
- If you do end up having holes, patch them up with some clear tape on the front (the painted side) and some duct tape or clear tape on the back. Paint over the tape if it is noticeable, or just peel off the front tape and only have tape on the back.
- Do not let very small children handle the nail polish.
- If you are a child, get your parent or guardian to help you with your craft.
