Wendy's Ceramics White Paint Palette

Hey, everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed the giveaway!  Thank you all SO MUCH for participating!

Today's post should have been nail art, but since my wireless mouse died and I really don't want to deal with a fiddly touchpad while going through/cropping/editing my photos, I'm going to be doing a review instead!  I've had this item for quite some time now, but I was waiting until after I had a chance to clean it to do a full review on it.

The Wendy's Ceramics White Paint Palette is pretty much a flat, ceramic flower!  It has a diameter of 5 and a half inches, and each of the nine wells is about 0.5 cm deep.  Because it is ceramic and not plastic, it holds up well to the chemicals in nail polish, thinner, and remover.  The easiest way to clean it is to fill each well with acetone, use an old paintbrush to scrub away the caked-on polish, dump the dirty acetone***, rinse with water, and then give it a swipe with an acetone-soaked paper towel.  Because there are so many wells, you will likely be able to do several manis between cleanings.  I have really enjoyed using this palette!  It's so much better than those plastic palettes!

The White Paint Palette costs $9.97 and can be purchased from the Wendy's Ceramics Etsy shop.  I believe that if you live in Canada, the shipping costs aren't so bad, but if you don't live in Canada, your $9.97 palette is going to become about a $19 palette!  I would recommend finding some friends to go in on a group buy, because the cost per palette will likely decrease significantly if you place a larger order.

***NEVER dump polish remover down the sink!  Dump it onto a pile of old newspapers or something, allow it to evaporate, and then throw out the soiled items.
