In late 2013, I made the VIB rouge status, and received a limited edition VIB Rouge mirror for the holidays. The VIB Rouge compact is mostly black with a silver casing with the VIB Rouge text written in red. I thought I would do something fun with it and give it a nice update. You can do this little project with any compact mirrors you have, and get creative with it!
How To VIB Rouge Mirror DIY.
- A compact mirror
- Rubbing alcohol
- Glitter nail polish
Make sure that the surface of the compact mirror is free from dust or finger oils. I use a couple of sprays of rubbing alcohol on a piece of napkin, and scrubbed the surface clean.
Grab your favourite glitter nail polishes or glitter coats – I had a hard time trying to decide which colours I wanted to use. As you can see, I’ve got two colours from Essie (A Stroke of Brilliance and A Cut Above), and two colours from American Apparel (Meteor Shower and Light Year). I ended up choosing American Apparel Meteor Shower since I love the combination of black, red, and gold as well as the chunky gold pieces.
Paint over your compact mirror! I left the VIB Rouge area free of nail polish because I like to have the text showing. Let the nail polish dry completely since it will take much longer than your nails to dry. I painted over the polish with a top coat to give it a little shine 🙂
This is how my VIB Rouge mirror looks like once the nail polish has completely dried. I decided to use two coats of top coat to help the mirror look smoother since the American Apparel nail polish is a little chunky and made the surface uneven.
