Nails: Acrylic Paint - Why I Use It

While I use a lot of nail polishes in my nail art I also really like to use acrylic paints.

[Details Here]

I use them for a couple of reasons:

- You can mix custom colours, so I don't need to have a million polishes
- Acrylic paint dries slower than polish, which means you have longer to do your designs and it doesn't go thick, gloopy and stringy

- If you mess up it is easy to wipe off with some water and start again, without messing the base polish
- The pigmentation of the paint is good so you don't need to go over and over the same area

- The acrylic is thinner than normal polish and because of this you can achieve thinner more delicate lines and details

The acrylic paints that I use are from Wilkinsons, I first got this set of twelve paints


I quickly went through the black and white paints and so have purchased these ones which have 75ml in each bottle compared to the 12ml in the mini tubes.


The assorted pack of paints (12ml x12) was around £2
The individual bottles (75ml) were around £1 and the metallic paints are around £1.25
