Acrylic paint


Like I promised in my last post, this one will be about my first experience with acrylic paint instead of nail polish  for making nail art. My first and foremost annoyance with using nail polish is that it's gloopy and difficult to manage. I read on a lot of blogs that acrylic paint is a great alternative, so I raced to the stores and bought a box with a rainbow of colours. After a lot of annoyance, painting and repainting, swearing - here it is, my first acrylic paint mani:

It's simple, colourful and above all simple. Have I mentioned simple? 

Products used:
  • Koh Baby Blue
  • Revlon Whimsical
  • Fuchsia acrylic paint from the Xenos

Also, I couldn't resist and bought a new Chanel polish. As soon as I saw the Roses ultimes de Chanel Collection I knew I had to have one. At first I wanted Frisson (a pearly pink with shimmer) but somehow I changed my mind to Distraction. It must have distracted me, hur hur. Anyway, here are a few pics. No swatches yet, but they're coming up soon.



  1. I've never tried acrylic paint. I wonder how well it would work to stamp with. You did a fantastic job!

    1. That's actually a very interesting idea! I'm going to try it out and I'll let you know :). And thank you!

  2. Super pretty!!! :D Oh I LOVE using acrylic paint, it is a cinch!

    1. Yes, I completely understand why now! Thank you! ^-^
