I haven’t painted my nails in a while, so I thought it was time to paint them again. I’m going to see the musical American Idiot on Thursday, so I thought I’d get into the spirit of it. I love musicals and Green Day (especially the American Idiot album), so I think this should be good. I don’t know too much about the musical, but it’s a musical of Green Day songs, how can it be bad.
I painted the details on my nails with acrylic paint, which can wash off, but hopefully the Sally Hansen matte top coat will make it last. I find that acrylic paint is better for details than nail polish because it doesn’t clump (so I can include fine details), it dries quickly (so there’s less of a chance of me wrecking it while it’s wet), it’s easier to mix colours, it’s easier for cleaning brushes and it doesn’t streak when I put a top coat over it, which happens with some nail polishes.
