In the process of creating some waterproof safety matches, I found I needed some nail polish. Now OH doesnt use this stuff cos the Swarfega she uses while fixing the tractor takes it straight off. So I thought I'd find some cheap generic clear varnish on Ebay - surprise - none to be found. Seems there's a cartel operating on ladie's things. £3.50 for a little 15ml bottle. That fluffed up my dander

So after some digging, I found that the durable stuff is made from Shellac ca £30 kg, enough for a million nails.

 

So I'm going to mix some up with meths and try it out on the old Nanny in our yard. She like a bit of attention. I'll mix in a bit of violet oil paint for a bit of tint so it will show up on her hoof (and match her eyes)

 

Watch this space ladies:-D

You can buy nail polish for £1.99 at Tesco..

 

Super Drug sells it quite cheaply as well - look out for the "offers".

Boots seem to have a couple of colours at £0.50p and £1.00 then shoots up to £1.99.

 

I don't wear the stuff myself, but would be interested to hear how your DIY stuff works out :)
