Eva received a Project Mc2 Experiment Doll – Camryn’s Nail Polish to review this week. Project Mc2 is a series on Netflix showing smart is the new cool with a team of 4 super smart, seriously cool girls. Each Project Mc2 Experiment doll comes with an experiment for you to complete at home with the help of S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths).
Project Mc2 Experiment Doll – Camryn’s Nail Polish
Camryn Coyle is the construction queen & this fab 12″ doll comes dressed in an off the shoulder ball dress with detachable dragon wings & mask. Camryn also comes with a mini hammer, excavator & funnel to help you with your Nail Polish experiment.
Eva’s Nail Polish Experiment
Eyeshadow is usually made from a mixture of talc powder and coloured pigments which is pressed into a palette. Crushed eyeshadow can be dissolved in nail polish which is usually made from ‘Ethyl Acetate’. Scientists call this a ‘Non-Polar Solvent’ which allows you to add colour to your clear nail polish.
Firstly, Eva broke up the eyeshadow by smashing it up with the hammer.
Once the eyeshadow was crushed up, Eva began scooping the loosened powder into the funnel. We sat the funnel on top of the clear nail polish bottle. Then she closed the bottle up and shook it up until well mixed, creating a pearly pink colour.
As you can see, Eva was really pleased she had made her very own pink nail polish. Eva can’t wait to try out some more experiments & can’t wait to check out the rest of the Project Mc2 dolls. We then tried out her nail polish out to see how well it had turned out, she was really pleased with the result! Eva said it was a super fun experiment.
