NumNoms Nail Polish Maker Review

Every since my girls discover NumNoms early last year, they have been obsessed. We’ve had just about every set available but what they wanted, more than anything else, was the Nail Polish Maker. And last week Christmas came early!!

The NumNoms Nail Polish Maker is exactly, that, it makes nail polish and you can mix your own scented nail polish with banana, strawberry and blueberry nail polish and even add glitter!

The Nail Polish Maker also comes with press on nails and nail stickers for the perfect manicure!

The girls couldn’t wait to make their own nail polish and it was really quite simple. First add the glitter and your choice of colour…..

Next add the nail polish base – the “milk”….

Then insert it into the nail polish mixer and give it a whirl! I have to be honest, I didn’t find that the mixer was able to mix the nail polish as much as was needed so we ended up shaking it by hand.

Once the nail polish was mixed it was time to paint our nails!

The set comes with two finger rests which also double up as booth seats.

I thought that the nail polish was a lot better than other children’s polishes we had tried and a really good colour and consistency.

Eva was really pleased with her pink nails, and Megan with her blue nails, and they couldn’t wait to mix some more polish for their toes!

We love the Nail Polish maker but with the set only coming with three nail polish containers, once you have made all three polishes it can be quite a long wait until they have been used up read to make more colours. I think for children, making the polish is most of the fun!

I can totally see why children are going crazy for NumNoms and I’m sure this will be on lots of Christmas lists this year. My girls are over the moon with it and we are enjoying having a little pamper together!

RRP £39.99 Available here from Smyths.

    I’ve been looking at this for my 8 year old daughter, I think she’d really like it. It’s good to see that it’s good quality kids nail polish.

      Yes we’ve had a lot of nail polishes that are so watery and pale, the blue especially in this is lovely and bright! xx

      They are so popular aren’t they? My girls are obsessed with Num Noms but this and their lip gloss truck is their favourite! xx

    What a cute Christmas idea that any young girl would enjoy and I think doing a moms/daughter beauty afternoon is a charming one.

      It’s lovely to have a pamper day together, the girls love having their nails painted. xx

    Aww this is really sweet. I would have loved to make my own nail polish when I was little. Perfect for any NumNoms fan as well!

    Oh my word my Harri is obsessed with makeup and nail varnish, she drives me a little crazy with it all. I have promised her a nail varnish making set (it was that or a perfume making set – both as equally messy) for getting a good school report and I have not seen this one before so I will check it out. Great review.

    I love the fact the nail polish is scented as it can be very strong and adding glitter would be great for kids! I think I’ll have all this to come in a few years time!

    Ok my daughter would go crazy for this set!! She loves having her nails done and she loves games like playdough or beads where you mix and match things. This is really the perfect combination of both! I have a feeling it will be added to her Christmas list 🙂
