The versatility of these colors can work on almost any surface - paper, ceramics, fabric, glass, plastic, wood, concrete, leather and, of course, nails. Acrylic paint on nails give a bright, juicy colors. They dissolve with water, mix easily, dries quickly.

Acrylic paints can be transparent, translucent, Opaque (completely cover the color of the previous layer) and pasty. When you create pictures on nails with acrylic paints, they can be easily mixed and tinted to give the widest range of colors - more than 2 thousand shades. One of the many advantages - durability (long shelf life) paints. Do not tolerate freezing temperatures acrylic paint, freeze may lose their properties.

Consider the popular technique of drawings on acrylic nails.

  • Oil application technique of acrylic paint on nails.

The undiluted acrylic paint has a consistency similar to oil. As oil, acrylic retains brush effect that allows to considerably diversify texture picture. For technology, similar to an oil painting, can be used acrylic paint pasty (3D-paint). They tend to form when applying volumetric strokes retain the form that gives them the brush.

  • Impasto technique of drawings on acrylic nails.

When using impasto (the Italian pastoso - pasty) technology should be applied on acrylic nails without dilution thick strokes. Drying up, it becomes like a gouache, but over time (unlike gouache) will not crack or discolor. Various additives can be used in the paint.

By adding a small amount of acrylic water and acrylic binder can be achieved with clear similarity watercolors. Acrylic paint, in contrast to watercolors, after drying is not washed off with water. This allows you to apply subsequent layers without damaging the previous one. Despite the outward similarity, equipment operation diluted acrylics differs from watercolor painting. This is because the acrylic fiber significantly faster drying. Watercolor technique paint "wet" when working with acrylic gives this effect.

  • Sliding technique in the performance of nail design acrylics.

More complex machines by drawing on your nails with a mix of acrylic paints and structural gels. During the mixing and application of paint becomes whitish. But it dried, the gel becomes transparent and shows the actual paint color. The effect of such mixing is impressive - the paint gets very juicy kind of like oil paints, complex gradations of light and deep shades. To work in technology Sliding certainly need some skills - only with experience, you can learn how to count change the color of the paint after drying. But the result is rewards all the effort.

  • Technique glaze for the drawings on acrylic nails.

Unique effect can be achieved by completing the design with acrylic paints on the nails in the art glaze. It is believed that this method was the first to apply the Leonardo da Vinci - the finest glaze created an unusually delicate chiaroscuro faces the famous Mona Lisa. We used this technique, Rembrandt, Velasquez and other famous artists. Although glaze technique was invented for oil painting, it is ideally used when drawing and acrylic paints, including on the nails. Admission glaze is applying a very thin, transparent layer of paint. Each subsequent layer is applied after drying the previous one, very fast drying acrylic paints are best suited for this method. For the development of glaze takes a lot of patience and time. In this case the master should be well developed imagination, he must clearly to visualize the future design. Figures on nails with acrylic paints, glazes in the technique, to give a clear almost to the ground. This technique can be successfully used as a base or backdrop for the figure, and for the design of decorative French.

Best practices for working with acrylic paints on the nails.

Painting nails acrylic performed various brushes, both synthetic and natural cloth. However, synthetic fiber brushes are best suited for working with acrylics. During operation, the brush must be kept unused in water, otherwise, the paint dries quickly to them - then they have to be discarded.

Cost acrylics higher than gouache and watercolors, so to get started is to buy only a few basic colors, six will be enough. Subsequently, by mixing them can achieve any required colors. Thus it is better to buy acrylic paint polish one manufacturer, when mixed to get the best result. Another property of acrylic paints - the presence of white, it helps to correct errors in the transmission of light and shadow. Acrylic paints can be used as a basis for performing other types of nail design, you can combine different types of techniques. As the palette to mix better to take a glass or plastic. Remove dried paint with a palette possible by immersing it in hot water for a short time. Getting between the palette and paint, water peels dried paint - then it is easy to remove.

Before the start of the development of painting techniques with acrylic paints on the nails, no harm will work out on paper - to experiment with the color spectrum, learn color relationships, try mixing different colors. Explore overprinting acrylic paints each other simply. To do this, draw a white sheet similarity chessboard 6 6 strips (if you have 6 colors of paint) with squares 2 2 cm. Then each strip paint a different color - first horizontally and then vertically in the same order. So you get 36 different colors. Doing these exercises on paper, you are ready to perform drawings on acrylic nails.
