Nail Polish Painted Glasses DIY Directions:

• Clean the glasses being used in this craft with soap and hot water. Make certain they are completely dry and lint free before starting.
• Fill the bowl with water.
• Drop a few drops of nail polish onto the surface of the water. Use whatever color combination you like. This tutorial uses blue, orange, yellow, and pink.
• Jiggle the bowl a tiny bit to force the nail polish design to spread. If you like, you can use a toothpick and draw across the surface of the nail polish to make intricate designs.

• Once you are happy with the design in the bowl, slowly lower a glass bottom side down into the bowl of water. You do not want to hit the design straight on as it will create an air pocket that will mess up your design. It is best to lower one edge down, and then slowly straighten the glass out over the surface of the water to prevent air bubbles from getting trapped inside the design.
• Pull the glass out of the water slowly. Flip it upside down.

• Keep the glasses bottom side up until they are completely dry. This can take an hour or more, depending on how humid it is in the room. You do not want to wipe the glasses dry as touching them before the nail polish is dry and set it will mess up the design.
• Once the designs are fully dry, apply a coat of waterproof sealer over the designs using a paint brush to apply.

• After you apply the waterproof sealer the design is locked in and you should be able to wash the glasses on the top rack of the dishwasher. Eventually, with prolonged dishwasher cleanings the design will come off a bit, so if you really want to keep the design intact, hand wash the glasses as the design should last longer.
