How to make it:

Step 1

Spend some time finding the most attractive and most fun varnish colours and combinations. Once you’ve gathered the perfect collection the party can begin. Pour thin lines of nail vanish onto the water in the bucket. Be quite speedy, because the varnish dries pretty quickly.

Pull the bottle out and leave it to dry. It’s easiest to place the bottle upside down on a stick until it’s dry. Job done! Fill the bottle with water and place the fantastic alstroemerias in it.
