I recently got some new acrylic paint colors to use in my nail art, and I was really excited to try them out. I really love Katrina’s floral patterns over on Cotton Coney, so I decided to go for something similar. Not completely in love with these, but they were definitely good practice!
I used OPI You’re So Vain-illa as the base, and the rest is acrylic paint. Looking at the pictures now, I wish I’d made the leaves a bit darker, but I was playing around with mixing colors (I just got basic black, white, red, green, blue, and yellow).
I mentioned in a previous post that I wasn’t a fan of using acrylic paints for nail art in the past. And then I tried it, and I have to say I’m a convert. I’m still planning on using mostly nail polish in my nail art, but the acrylic paint just allows for a bit more control (and, in a lot of cases, opacity). Let me know what you think in the comments!
