I can't just throw the bottles away into a landfill (that's not very earth friendly), and I can't put them in the recycle bin until they're empty. So how can I empty them? Sure I've used my nail polish to paint wood beads a number of times, but I don't think there are enough beads in the world to use up all my bottles, plus, painting beads takes forever! I need something faster.
So one day while watering my plants in the front garden, I was struck with inspiration. How about I paint these ugly grey cinder blocks? So that's what I did. Believe it or not, I painted 4 blocks & I STILL have nail polish to spare - guess I need to go buy some new blocks.
I did this last month in the blazing 100+ August heat of South Texas - the bad side, it was frickin hot - the good side, it was dry enough to let the nail polish fully cure over night. Here's how I did it.
Plain grey cinder blocks or bricks (mine are single hole blocks)
Ton's of old crappy nail polish
Tilt your block up on to some rocks - drizzle & swizzle nail polish one side at a time - let dry. Done :o)
