This is exactly what I have been dreaming about! Perfect timing!

Do you know if you can use the watercolor-ed mug in the microwave without it cracking or melting off or I'm not even sure?

Hi,
I love this idea so much! I've tried it a few times with less than desirable results. It seems like the nail polish is dissipating into a clear film. Should I just add more until I start to see color? Also, do you have any tips on exactly how to dip the cup in to the water in order to get those beautiful edges?
This is so pretty ~ Thanks in advance!

Nicole - Add a more few drops if you're only getting a clear film. I had the same thing happen with one of my lighter, thinner nail polishes and it worked just fine once I added a few more drops.

As far as dipping... I dipped mine straight down towards one side of the nail polish blob and then rolled it to the opposite side to pick up the rest of the polish floating on the water.

Hopefully that helps!

I too want to know if you can microwave them? Nail polish is FLAMABLE! This maybe really pretty..BUT, how safe are they? 1-in the microwave..2-if color gets near top where you put your mouth etc...I'm not all that happy with using nail polish on something you heat up and drink from. :-(

Do you think this would work on those metal pails/buckets that are painted white? I am thinking a blue water color effect moving up the bottom. Thoughts?

Wow! So many possibilities on blank blah canvases...picture frames, candle holders, jars used for gift in a jar, plain clay beads...the list goes on & on! Thanks so much for sharing!

Looks great. I just tried it however when I went to swirl the nail polish it just lumped together and formed a skin on top of the water - I was able to peel it off like you would a skim of milk - any suggestions?
