Lithuanian artist Agne Kišonaite, has shared with us how she created her latest artwork using used nail polish bottles.

While she was painting her nails, she thought to herself how playful the colors were that can be seen through the thick glass of the bottles. Then it hit her, she could make an art piece using the nail polish bottles to create a sort of mosaic art piece.

Let’s have a look at how she did it…


First Agne made a painting that she would base her finished piece off of.

Next, she collected over 5,000 used nail polish bottles from various places, and began sorting them out into 21 different color shades.

Instead of wasting what was essentially paint in the bottles, she emptied them onto various canvas sizes and they turned into Jackson Pollock-esque paintings.
