Car Paint For Your Nails: This Is A Real (Gorgeous) Thing

car-paint-nail-polish
We don't usually look at cars and think "Mmm, that paint job would look bangin' on our nails," but after seeing these cool tips on Beautylish, we're looking at das auto in a whole new light.
Nail blogger The Polished Mommy concocted this awesome, multi-dimensional shade using Chromaflair. The pigment, which is made of magnesium fluoride-coated particles, is used for cars, plastics, textiles, paints, and packaging, but not in cosmetics. Unfortunately, if you're hoping to mix up some for your own metamorphosing mani, you'll have to know someone on the inside — Chromaflair isn't sold legally to the public as it's used in counterfeiting. We're practically drooling waiting for the day that it's regularly incorporated into our products, because to keep something this fabulous from us beauty fanatics is truly criminal. (Beautylish)
