Nail Polish Coaster Craft Tutorial

I love crafting with nail polish and resin and it seemed like a great combination and coasters are kind of my thing right now.

You will need:

-  Nail polish
-  Coaster mold - you can buy one, or I use and egg ring/shaper on parchment paper and hot glue around it (see video)
-  Resin - I use Easy Cast

Here is the video tutorial:


1.  Set up your mold - see video
2.  Prepare enough resin to cover the bottom of the mold - it should be a thin layer - allow to cure
3.  Paint different color nail polishes - maybe throw in some glitter - allow to dry
4.  Prepare resin to cover the nail polish - this layer can be as thick or thin as you like as long as it covers the whole layer - allow to cure

That's it!  Have fun playing with your nail polish and end up with a great accessory!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!



  1. That's a great idea! Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. Mona,

    This is lots of fun! I want to decorate a (small) table top but I am not sure if Mod Podge would be the best overcoat. Do you think resin would work? Of course it would probably just pour over the edges.


    1. Hi Diana -

      I don't know if Mod Podge would be durable enough. I think resin would work great, but the Easy Cast I use is normally for smaller pours, but is great because it's low odor. I'm going to email the blogger at Envirotex and see what she would recommend for a table top. She's answered questions for me before and I'll let you know what I hear. I would check out Home Depot, I think they may have a resin that's for bar tops, but I'm not sure. I'll keep you posted when I get an answer.

      Thanks for stopping by!
