What Are The Ingredients To Make Nail Polish?

Written by Tara

Nail polish is made by combining nitrocellulose and plasticizers with color pigments. The mixing is done in a two-roll differential speed mill, which grinds the pigment between a pair of rollers that are able to work with increasing speed as the pigment is ground down.

Conventional nail polish consists of a polymer, most commonly nitrocellulose, dissolved in a solvent, usually ethyl acetate or butyl acetate. When it is applied the solvent evaporates, leaving the polymer to form a film on the nail.

Generally Can you make your own fingernail polish? You can use pretty much any oil-based or oil-dispersible cosmetic colorant to color your nail polish. Just make sure that whatever you are using is made for cosmetic use. Craft glitters, food dyes or other non-cosmetic colorants might not behave well in nail polish since they aren’t designed for that purpose.
