Are your digits in desperate need of a seasonal re-vamp? Or are they in an urgent compulsion to make one of those cute origami projects?
Whatever the case might be, this cute origami nail polish is perfect for a girl who wants to experience a little bit of origami glamour, and for a boy who wants to impress his sweetheart with a set of seductive paper-folding nail fashion.
Timeless red origami nail polish lends a crisp elegance to any look! But you can make this two-piece cute origami nail polish in any color of the origami paper spectrum that might be fashionable this season.
Better yet, make yourself a set of origami nail polish in bold shades. They will be expensive-looking and party-friendly all at once. And they will relieve your need to have a fun origami project on a rainy afternoon.
Here I share the video with step by step instructions to fold this two-piece model.
Tips and Suggestions
- This cute origami nail polish is made with two rectangular pieces of paper in the proportion 1:3. For example, if the short side measures 2 inches, the long side should be 6 inches.
- You need to use duo color paper to have the cap one color and the jar another.
- If you divide a square in three equal sections, two of them will be perfect for the nail polish bottle and cap, and the third one will be good as a helper tool.
I created this set of origami nail polish inspired by a visit with my good friend Vicki Kohl. On a trip to Hawaii Vicki couldn’t resist the temptation of a brightly-colored set of nail polishes either, which was lucky for me! When I spotted them sitting on a shelf in her home I took a photo. Cute, cute, cute, I thought!
I kept looking at that photograph until the idea came to me of how to make my own origami nail polish. The design is related to the Christmas lights I presented in another post.

I was trying to make the nail polish simultaneously watching the video.and it came out very well. I just liked the idea very much.thank you Leyla for this great idea
I’m glad you like the nail polish and were able to make it. I had a lot of fun designing and sharing it. Play, play play!
Hey leyla can you also teach me how to make a diamond which looks more like a bejeweled instead of 4 sided make it 3D and heres an example of one
I’m happy you like what you find here. Thank you for writing with your suggestions on what to teach. I cannot always promise that I will be able to do a video for the figure you like, but I will keep them in mind.
You are very good at these things so I decided to give you an angel stamp because your videos are something special, if they were not good videos I could’ve given you a devil stamp which isnt good only the angel stamps are and for that angel stamp I will also give you double star points and double star stamps which tells that your video is so splendid
Hello I like your nailpolish and the nailpolish looking lights. I want you to teach us different types of makeup like a twisting lipstick tube STAMP:♡Angel
Dear Leyla – thanks so much for posting the much anticipated origami nail polish design! love seeing such a fun, modern design come from such a traditional craft. these bottles are fabulous and feminine, with so many options for colours!
Hi Beth, lets see what else come from this… perhaps a lipstick?
that would be very exciting indeed! :)
After seeing some fabulous glitter nail polishes in the chemist, I couldn’t resist making a version of your nail polishes using glittery foil papers!
Omigoodness that is just too cute for words! I think I’ll make some in a nice summery pink, or coral, or classic red, or all three!!! Thanks Leyla!
Hi Tara… go for all three and send us a link to your photos ;-)
This is a really awesome model! I did have a bit of trouble in the end, getting the bottle to fit into the cap pocket, but that was my first attempt…the next time will work better! Thank you, Leyla!
As you can see at the end of the video, you can pull apart the flaps a tiny bit to widen the cap so it fits better. I’m sure your next one will be much much better… you’ll be able to make yourself a whole set.
Oh Leyla … too sweet for words. I can anticipate many girly- girls having so much fun folding this model! You never cease to amaze me with your creativity abounding.
I hope someone from Revlon is able to see this tutorial and snap up the idea :-)
Thank you as always for a superbly taught model.
You are welcome Rosemary. It has been a lot of fun to create this model.
Yes, this is for girly girls… Don’t we all ladies feel like being glamorous once in a while… or more often than not?
