While browsing Reddit, I saw an AWESOME mani based off this video. It looked like a dead ringer for OPI Black Spotted, which I desperately want. I didn't actually have any spray hand sanitizer handy, and the comments on Reddit lead me to believe that regular alcohol wouldnt do. So I went in search of recipes for a DIY version. I found tons. I kinda adapted this recipe for my own uses.
For this particular recipe:
tea tree oil
aloe vera gel
70% isopropyl alcohol
|about 1/2 ounce of alcohol. DO NOT DRINK THIS.|
|about the same amount of aloe gel.|
|pour into a spray bottle and shake it like you mean it.|
|five or so drops of China Glaze Liquid Leather|
|one spritz. Looks like success.|
So I tried a different recipe. Basically 1:1 witch hazel and alcohol, which would also make a great spray sanitizer. I spritzed it on the water, and it looked right...but it wouldnt stick to my nail. Double damn. I'm going to try and pick up some store-bought spray sanitizer tonight. Maybe there is something in there that I am missing? If you, dear reader, have any ideas let me know. I'd love for this to work without buying some spray that I won't ever use for anything else.
