What does 1/3 or 3/4 or 1/4 mean
One the recipe cards, when you tell us to mix certain things, you have a 1/3 or 3/4 or 1/4 in front of it......for example on Charlotte's pick recipe card, The Mix says 1/3 Splash, 1/3 Prism, 1/3 Stiletto.....and The Paint Mix says 3/4 Ferris Wheel, 1/4 Raincoat.
I understand the numbers are measurements, but I have no idea what 1/3, 3/4 or 1/4 is. A 1/3 of what?
And I figured out where I have to mix The Mix in, but where do I mix the nail polish in, is that what the petri dish is for?

on Nail Lab
example 1/3red, 1/3 blue ,1/3 green =3/3=1 whole.
one whole consisting of three equal parts.
also, the kit not only provides numerous beautiful unique colors, numerous perfect topcoats, but also a few completely empty nail polish bottles, just awaiting your own nail polish creation.

So pretty much *I* decide if it's drops or a bottle?
MidnightBlue, thank you very much for answering my question.
NOW wish they'd of said if the measurements are in drops or something else. It just has the 1/4 or whatever, but doesn't say what the measurement is...i.e. drops etc.
To answer just the measurements question, since I don't own the kit: you're measuring parts. The total amount of polish you want to mix, it's telling you how much of the total amount of ending polish should be which color.
For example, for the Paint Mix, it's 3 parts Ferris Wheel and 1 part Raincoat. If a "part" was a drop, then you would do 3 drops of Ferris Wheel and 1 drop of Raincoat, with the final mix being a total of 4 drops.
On a larger scale, if a part was a bottle, you'd mix 3 bottles of Ferris Wheel with 1 bottle of Raincoat.
Hope that helps.
