Homemade Light Box

After wondering how nail bloggers and networkers get such great photo's of their nails I found a Blog post by Chalkboard Nails (link at bottom) about making your own light box.
So, on my next visit to the supermarket I picked up an empty cardboard box to start my creation with.

The box I found is slightly smaller than I would of liked but at the time this was the only one I could get. Because the inside of this box was the brown colour I actually painted some of it white using poster paint.

When I had finished my creation I got a small spotlight and balanced it on a tub so that it reached the top of the box.

I was really pleased with how it turned out and it was so easy to do! Below are a couple of example pics that I took. I must point out that I do have a camera with macro and therefore this also helps with getting good shots :-)

Thankyou for reading, please follow me on Bloglovin for updates on my blog :-)

  1. Think I might give this a go if I can find a box big enough as I'm always worrying about the quality of my pics and sick of taking multiple pics to get the best. :)
