Rosie & Jewel love slime, so I knew that they would be excited to make slime from nail polish.  We began by raiding our nail polish supply.  This was a great way to put some of our stockpile to use! 

This activity does smell-I am not going to lie, but no more than a nail painting session with a room full of girls.  It's just nail polish, but yes, a good bit of it.  With that being said I do recommend doing this activity in a well ventilated area. 

Make Slime from Nail Polish

Can you make nail polish slime using one of our other popular recipes?  Why not try & find out!  Try making nail polish slime using:
Tips & Storage:
  • I recommend doing this activity in a well ventilated area or outside if possible.  My entire house smelled like a nail salon, but it was worth it!
  • I also recommend covering the area where you will be making your slime if you are indoors.  We used a dollar store shower curtain for this.
  • Store your slime in an air-tight container between play times, and it can be used again & again!
  • Is it important to use a glass or ceramic bowl when making this slime, as the nail polish in this recipe could eat through other types of containers, like Styrofoam.
  • I would not use a bowl that you plan to cook with- the dollar store is a great place to grab one on the cheap just for activities like this one.
  • A REMINDER:  The contact lens solution that you are using in this recipe must contain boric acid.  The brand that we use to make our slime can be purchased on Amazon here.
