My brother actually showed me this exciting new “mugged” project! As you know I got my dishware from the dollar store. I also got my nail polish from there. Easy and inexpensive project that will make great gifts!
- Mug/ Glass (washed)
- Paper Plate
- Nail Polish (your choice of colors)
- Large container that can be ruined (I used an old yogurt container)
- Modpodge Dishwasher Safe (Optional)
Fill the large container that can get ruined with water. Be logical with how much water to use. As you can see, my container is similar shape as my glassware. I filled my container about half full. Next time I will use less water though, the glass displaced much of the water and it spilled over a few times.
Glove up! Pour the nail polish into the water. Try different techniques such as a swirl or drops. You can also use a toothpick to help swirl.
Dip you dish into the container of nail polish. I did reach the bottom and smooshed some of the paint that fell to the bottom onto the bottom of the glass.
Pull the dish out of water and set upside down on the paper plate. You can let it dry or go for a round two and add additional color. Once you are finished dipping, let dry for 24 hours.
This project is NOT dishwasher or microwave proof.
Step 5 (optional)
If you would like to make it dishwasher proof, add a couple coats of modpodge dishwasher safe onto the dish to protect the nail polish design.
