Playing with Acrylic paint

I while ago I seen a post from Ash-Lilly's Lacquer Lust on one stroke nail art and she did his beautiful flower design and I just had to give it a try. I purchased some acrylic paint from transdesign and I always have tons of different size paint brushes. I used a small squared brush sorry no picture. This was my 1st attempt at this I can draw and paint but its much harder when you have a smalled canvas.

After doing this I realized it is  much easier to do designs with Acrylic paint then it is with drops of nail polish which should have been a Homer Simpson moment DOH! I then wanted to do more so I made my favorite character Hello Kitty in a Tokidoki Cactus suit. I really liked how it came out and I will probably do it in a mani soon.

Acrylic paint is now my go to for free hand nail art! Have any of you tried using acrylic paint for your designs?


  1. You've got to love those acrylics, right? I don't know how I managed without them, lol!I love your designs; that kitty is sooo cute x

  2. OMG yes I don't know either! !!! Thank you I tried. Thanks to your design is why I even tried doing a design with acrylics.
