Nail polish, we all have it in our homes and probably in more colors than we care to admit. Each season there are new colors to choose from and these colors follow the trend colors we see in fashion, home décor and of course crafting supplies. Where others simply see a beauty supply, we see a crafting supply! Gone are the days when nail polish simply came in an array of different colors, it is now available in options that are flocked, glittered and crackled.
