I was offered the chance to review an acrylic paint set sold by Born Pretty Store. As most of you know already, this etailer sells an abundance of nail art supplies, all of which can be found here. Having never used acrylic paint for nail art before, I took the opportunity as the paint allowed me to take my time with my amateur nail art skills :P
Check out my awesome tropical sunset nails :D They were inspired by this image.
Pinky & index: One coat of OPI My address is Hollywood sponged with OPI Call me Gwen-ever.
Fourth finger & thumb: One coat of OPI Parlez-vous OPI? sponged with My address is Hollywood and Call me Gwen-ever.
Middle finger: One coat of Parlez-vous OPI sponged with My address is Hollywood.
I then took the black acrylic paint to paint the palm tree, island and birds. Mixing up a yellow and golden yellow, I painted the sun.
I used the largest palette to hold the paint and the smaller bits to hold water - no need to get another cup to clean up my brushes ;) The largest brush size 0 was used for the tree, island and sun, and the smallest for the bird outlines. The acrylic paint set I was sent had a bottle of nail hardener instead of a second palette due to it being out of stock. I really like this little gesture as it shows how much Born Pretty Store treasures their customers.
I enjoyed the process of nail art more than if I were using nail polish, mostly because there was no excess fumes for me to inhale. The acrylic paints which I used so far were fairly opaque. I really like this set and can't wait to play around with it more!
