Need a natural pedi foot scrub recipe that really works? Then you’re in luck! I’ve just shared a fab new natural skin care recipe for a pedi foot scrub with coconut oil over at The Nourished Life blog!

Pedi Foot Scrub Recipe with Coconut Oil! This super exfoliating pedi foot scrub recipe with coconut oil will leave your feet feeling like you just had a professional spa pedicure!

Let’s face it. In today’s crazy busy world it can be darn near impossible to squeeze in enough time for yourself – especially if you have a family you’re always putting first. So finding the time for a pedicure is probably laughably impossible. But at the same time it’s the end of summer in retail land. Which means so many super cute summer shoes are now on sale! And you still have some time to put some wear into them. (And maybe sneak in a vacation before fall. One can hope.)

Anyhow, if you’ve ever been on the wrong side of a mean girl, then you know someone is going to hear about it if you’re foot are in serious need of attention. So order some supplies, pour a glass a wine – pour the wine AFTER you shop or oops! – and whip up my exfoliating pedi foot scrub recipe on a night after the kids have gone to bed.

Craft & Cocktail Night: DIY Nail Polish

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.

As mentioned in last week’s weekly wrap up, I’m going to be doing Craft & Cocktail Night about every other week with friends and acquaintances this summer. The first of such nights was this past Saturday when we made DIY nail polish!

I had been wanting to try this project for a while but had kept putting it off. So I finally took the plunge, bought the supplies and my friends and I all made DIY nail polish together.

Creating custom nail polish makes a wonderful DIY for a Craft & Cocktail Night as it’s actually a really easy project to do. This way everyone can have fun and catch up with friends – as well as make new ones! – without having to worry about making mistakes with a project and going home disappointed.

To start off our DIY nail polish Craft & Cocktail Night, we first settled in with a cheese board I threw together and cocktails comprised of vodka and Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower and Rose Lemonade. (These are SO good. I buy my Elderflower and Rose Lemonade from The Fresh Market. You can mix it with either vodka or gin as strong as 1 part vodka to 1 part lemonade and it’s delish!)

After everyone was comfortable and we’d chatted for a bit we dove into making our own DIY nail polish.

I purchased my supplies for this DIY nail polish project from Brambleberry. You’ll need their suspending nail polish base and nail polish mixing balls for this project, along with mica pigment powders to color your polish and solvent resistant or nail polish glitter, tiny 18mm funnels, mini .15cc scoops and nail polish containers of your choice. Toothpicks also come in handy. (If you don’t want to buy everything individually, Brambleberry also sells kits.)

I also bought some cute little decorative bags from my local craft supply store for everyone to take their completed projects home in. Once, you’ve gathered all of the materials needed for your DIY nail polish, you’re ready to begin!

To make your own DIY nail polish, you’ll begin by carefully pouring the suspending nail polish base into the nail polish bottle. We tried using a funnel for this but the funnel opening is too small to really get the nail polish base into the jar. This does take a little bit of patience.

Fill your nail polish bottle about 3/4 of the way full with the suspending nail polish base. Once you’ve added the base, drop 2-3 nail polish mixing balls to the nail polish container.

(As a side note, be sure to do this on a dedicated craft table or with a placemat underneath your work surface. The first time I made this some of the nail polish base spilled onto the tablecloth and went through to the table, taking the paint off.)

Next, using a funnel, add mica pigment powder in your color(s) of choice to the bottle. I recommend 4-5 of the mini scoops for an opaque color. Or use less for a sheer color.

Tap the funnel into the nail polish jar to fill it. You can use a toothpick to help push more of the color into the jar if the funnel gets clogged.

If desired, you can also add glitter to your custom DIY nail polish. We found using a small scoop for the glitter worked best and omitted the use of a funnel for this step.

Once you’ve added the color and glitter, add the brush and lid to your nail polish container.

Shake well then test out your new nail polish on a finger. If desired, you can add additional mica and/or glitter to suit.

Be sure to keep track of the mica color(s) and the number of scoops you use for your nail polish in a notebook or an a piece of paper so you can recreate it later.

Once you’ve achieved your perfect nail polish color, you can decorate your nail polish bottles.

We used washi tape to decorate our nail polish bottles but paint pens work great too.

And that was it! Our new DIY nail polish was ready to rock!

We had a LOT of fun with this project and were each able to make more than one nail polish.

Afterwards, as there was still loads of time left in the evening, we broke out the card game, Exploding Kittens. None of us had ever played before so Bambi, who loves games, took the lead and read the rules. She also kept us straight when got confused.

Cathy got a kick out of the card instructions. (I’d purchased the NSFW version.)

To create the easy patriotic 4th of July nail dots (pictured above) first create your base with two coats of the red crème polish, Myriam.

Once your white dots have dried completely, then add additional dots with the peacock blue nail polish from Julep, Paulina. Don’t forget to complete your look with a top coat to extend the life of your new 4th of July nail art look!

If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, then try creating stars and stripes nails. Begin by painting all of your nails with two coats of the red polish, Myriam. Allow to dry completely. Then, on your accent nails, use scotch tape as a guide to paint even stripes of the white polish, Brigette. Once these lines have dried, use a toothpick to draw blue stars on your accent nails with the blue polish, Paulina.

If you’re a master at nail polish and have steady hands, then you may want to try these red, white and blue wave nails for your 4th of July nail art look. Begin by painting half of your nail with Myriam, your red polish, then add on a scalloped edge. Allow to dry, then apply the white scalloped paint layer with Brigette. Once that layer has dried, complete the look with a third scalloped layer of Paulina (blue). Optionally, you can also add a touch a sparkle on top of the blue with Kirby. Be sure to finish your completed 4th of July nail art look with a top coat to make your mani last and shine!
