Miniature finger nail polish bottles

I have lots of leftover beads just lying around and I saw something wonderful that Tanya had done in her Picturetrail albums.  She made tiny finger nail polish bottles and I wanted to give it a try.  The small bottom beads are clear with just a tiny bit of color in the middle.  The taller gold beads look just like the tops to a nail polish bottle.  I think they are cute for a first try, but I think next time I will try to shorten the top beads just a bit.   I love that the beads came in so many different colors and I think they would look great on a little vanity table with make-up and a jewelry box, etc.

Oh these are so cute and easy to make!

If you get lucky you can find the lower beads with a hole just big enough that the stem part slides in and you just glue it the depth you want. Though I think your stems look just fine. I've got lots of Real size nail polish with long stems :)

A Wright - I will definitely look for smaller beads next time or maybe a different glue, I did have a time getting these to stand up.

Thanks guys!
