Reuse Your Old Clear Coat!

If you're like me then you probably have some almost out clear coat laying around that you just can't bring yourself to throw away. You think one day I will find a good use for that! Well, today is that day!
I made a trip down to my local craft store and picked up some beautiful glitters. You can probably already guess where I'm going with this. So let's jump in to the pictures!
This one was Sally Hansen Double Duty clear coat. And now it's a beautiful Fall Leaf Glitter!!
I had a 40% off coupon so I went ahead and purchased Martha Stewart! And then there was four packs for $1 as well.
Some up close pictures of theses beauties.

I will be doing a lot of Fall designs. So, I decided to mix up these babies.
Then I added more of another left over to the bottle I was working with.
And there you go!!!
Keep in mind that this glitter and some others may bleed or be heavy in the bottle. If the glitter settles just give it a good shake. If it bleeds you may need to purchase a more high end glitter.This one did bleed very little but stayed in tact.
Here is the first manicure I did with my new leaf glitter.
Tutorial for this mani is just a click away right here!


  1. Hey! New to your blog! Love all your pretty designs! Did the glitter end up bleeding more after it was left for a while? It's hard finding some that you KNOW wont bleed. I'd be curious to hear how these turn out!

    1. It did bleed a little. But the flakes are still beautiful! I think it must have been residue from the flitter. Because I poured it directly into the polish. It really depends on the glitter quality. Head over to beautybykrystalblogspot. She has more info on this proocess. Good luck! Thanks for asking. Love and positivity
