Instant inexpensive paint


I have been decorating garden pots and little things around the house and I decided to use nail polish as a waterproof instant color. It made sense to me to not buy paint for such a tiny amount that I needed. I took a picture of the brands that I know are not tested on animals, which are Milani, Wet 'n Wild, and Sally Girl. (There are just a few others that don't test on animals but these are what I had in the house). When I need just a little paint I will buy more, as I got these for only a dollar each and they will keep forever.

    I may try it this year with the pink glittery one I bought before Christmas. My grandsons are getting too old for the dip and stickers method of egg coloring.
