Repurposing Nail Polish Bottles: What You Can Do With Old Nail Polish Bottles


If you have a lot of empty or old nail polish bottles, it would be a waste if you just throw them away. They are more than just bottles for your favorite nail polish. You can also use them for a variety of stuff, including storing them with other components. If you’re looking for awesome ideas on how you can reuse your nail polish bottles, then you’re definitely in the right place!

2. A Mini Candle Holder

This might sound ridiculous as nail polish bottles are too tiny for even small and slender candles. However, you can already find nail polish bottles today that have enough opening for a small candle. You can decorate the bottle by putting stickers or glitters to make it more appealing.

3. Storage for Loose Eyeshadow

Even though loose shadow tends to go all over the face, many women still love to use them. The best way to apply them is to put some of it at the back of your hand, dip your brush, and apply to the face. This will allow you to control the shadow better. If you plan to travel, an empty nail polish bottle will be perfect storage for your loose eyeshadow. This will prevent spilling, which could get really messy.

You can also use your old nail polish bottles as holiday decors. Use your crafting skills by adding more design to them through paints, stickers, and other crafty materials like starts, ribbons, and hearts.

5. Holder for Crafty Materials

If you love arts and crafts, then you probably have a lot of materials that need proper storing. A nail polish bottle is an excellent storage you can use for your glitters, tiny stickers, and other crafty materials. It does not consume too much space and it can also function as decoration in your room.

6. Container for Other Nail Polish


You can get creative by making your own color of nail polish. Mix a variety of colors of nail polish and discover different colors you can use. Empty out old nail polish bottles and use them for storage for new colors that you will create. You can also mix an old eyeshadow with your nail polish to customize the colors.

7. A Space-efficient Storage for Paint

A lot of women adore art and love spending some of their time doing crafty things. If you love to use different colors of paint, then nail polish bottles are great for storing them. Most paint comes in huge containers and they will take a lot of space. 

If you have a lot of things going on in your room, then these containers are not ideal. Refill small nail polish bottles with enough paint you’ll be using for your project. This will keep you more organized and allow you to focus more on what you are working on.

8. Decorations for Your Home

Making your home unique and beautiful doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot on decorations. You can reuse old items in your house and turn them into decors. With old nail polish bottles, you can paint them, store them with glitters, attach them with stickers, etc. Then tie them in strings to hold them together. Hang them outside your window, on your porch, or even at your door. They will surely make a statement.

Indigenous Climate Warriors in Times Square



(Photo by Honor the Earth)

On Tuesday September 19, 2023, the Indigenous peoples took to the frontlines of the climate crisis on Turtle Island and took over Times Square painting a giant mural with the message, “No Green Colonialism; Land Back NOW!”

This mural came the day before the UN Climate Ambition Summit, where world leaders are expected to come together and make decisions around the climate crisis.

The Indigenous communities are organizing to push back on the Biden Administration’s push toward solutions to the climate crisis that threaten the lives of Indigenous people across Turtle Island, which they call “Green Colonialism.” “For too long, Native lands and communities have borne the brunt of harm from mining and other extractive industries. As the federal government moves to support clean energy development, this cannot come at the expense of clean water or Indigenous rights. This familiar assault on Native lands and communities is another wave of colonialism, and we will not stand by and allow our lands to be sacrificed,” Krystal Two Bulls,  executive director of the national Indigenous organization Honor the Earth said in a press release.

The mining projects violate treaty rights and threaten clean water and land in places such as Thacker Pass, Oak Flat , and the Talon-Tamarak mine near the Mississippi headwaters.

We should all be fighting this fight!

Beatles Brunch at City Winery Where Strawberry Fields Lives Forever



I was taken to City Winery by Eli Marcus for the Beatles Brunch with Strawberry Fields.
This show plays every Sunday with an unlimited brunch buffet that includes coffee, tea and juice, starting at noon. A bottomless brunch cocktail package is also available and children get in free. Here tourists mingle with New Yorkers, eating scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, dried out French toast, spicy potatoes with onions and peppers, perfectly done chicken, salad and fresh fruit. What is so nice, is that everyone seems happy to to be here, to see and hear the Fab Four.

Eli Marcus, Suzanna Bowling

The show starts off without fan fare. The lights dim and four men enter, not quite looking like the originals. Tony Garofalo (John Lennon), Billy J. Ray (Paul McCartney), Ira Siegel (George Harrison), and Michael Bellusci (Ringo Starr) and their costumes and wigs have seen better days. Then the music starts. You can watch one of our video’s here.

From the early hits like “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You,” “Ticket To Ride” “Eight Days A Week” and more the first act is nostalgia at it’s best. It was adorable to watch the audience, especially the young ones “Twist and Shout.”

After a break in came the Sergeant Pepper era, clothing and all. From that we got “Nowhere Man,” “My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “When I’m 64,” “Penny Lane” and songs that dig into your soul. They are done well and the Beatles live again. You can see our video here.

Then the later songs like “I Am The Walrus” and “Don’t Let Me Down” end a show that is almost two hour long of music, that is classic. I have to admit I wanted to hear “Blackbird” and “Norwegian Wood,” but what you get is a  well rounded assortment of those songs that shaped several era’s.

Billy J. Ray, Ira Siegel

Ira Siegel stands out with his guitar playing that is out of this world. I really loved all the songs he sang as well.

Michael Bellusci

Tony Garofalo

Tony Garofalo is the founder, creator and producer playing rhythm and lead guitar and singing lead vocals along with Alan LeBoeuf from the original Beatlemania playing bass guitar. Ray looks the most like the Beatle he is playing.

Strawberry Fields has been covering The Beatles for over three decades. They used to have a residency at B.B. Kings, but these days their home base is City Winery and it is definitely a great way to spend a Sunday. All four are consummate musicians and obviously have a love for what they do and that rubs off on their audience.

For a souvenir up a City Winery Strawberry Fields Rose Wine and have it signed by the cast. With its is its strawberry pink color, you get a combination of kiwi, watermelon and the taste of strawberry that lingers.

City Winery is right next to Little Island, Chelsea Market, The Highline, the Meatpacking district, Chelsea, and West Village. Everything is nearby to make a perfect outing for the whole day and this is one brunch where you definitely get your money’s worth. Click HERE for tickets

Tickets are $65.45
