Acrylic Nails Or Gel Nails?

These products are not meant to be used by someone your age. They are not really recommended for anyone under the age of about 15 or 16 - most quality salons would have a minimum age. If you absolutely must have nail extensions at your age - stick with press on nails. They can be damaging and painful if they break (much more so than natural nails) and they are expensive to get and maintain, as the initial set at a quality salon will cost $40-$50 and up, the cost of repairs in between fills, and the cost of fills every 2-3 weeks which is about $25-$35 or more. Neither product is "better for you" or more or less damaging to your nail. It's the technician's application and removal that can ruin your nails if done improperly. They are both acrylic products.

1. What styles are acrylic paints good for?

Use acrylic paint straight from the tube to resemble an oil painting, for thick applications, or for impasto techniques. Dilute the acrylic paint with water or an acrylic liquid medium to resemble a watercolor painting or for thin transparent washes of color. When thinning acrylics with water do not mix acrylic paint with more than 50 per cent water. Using more than this will loosen the adhesive qualities. You can mix acrylic paint with as much acrylic liquid medium as you like because the medium has the acrylic resin in it that will not loosen the adhesive qualities. The best paint to buy are paints that are labeled "archival" or "artist grade" or "professional grade" because they are highly pigmented, permanent, archival, and lightfast. You can also look for paints that are labeled with these words: lightfast, light resistant, fade resistant, artist quality, fine quality, high quality, premium quality, professional quality. If you use "student grade" or "scholastic" paint your artwork may fade over time because these paints generally use a lower quality pigment. Not all paint brands are made the same. The color of the paint (even if it has the same name) may vary among different paint manufacturers. Decide which paint brand you will use and stick with that brand to learn the color properties of that particular brand. The best painting surface to buy are surfaces that are labeled "archival" or "artist grade" or "professional grade" because they will last a very long time. You can also look for surfaces that are labeled with these words: acid-free, ph-neutral, lignin free, 100% cotton rag, 100% cotton, artist quality, fine quality, high quality, premium quality, professional quality. If you use "student grade" or "scholastic" surfaces your surface will deteriorate alot quicker and possibly turn yellow because these surfaces are made from lower quality materials. Paper (canvas paper, acrylic paper, thick watercolor paper) is good for beginners to use, plus it is cheap to buy. When you advanced, then move on to stretched canvas or art panels. The NUMBER ONE book you should have on learning how to work with acrylics is "The Acrylics Book" by Barclay Sheaks! This book is the encyclopedia for acrylics! It explains materials, techniques, and more! You can buy this book at Amazon website. Acrylics dry fast, so you will need to buy a special palette called a Stay Wet Palette, such as Masterson Sta-Wet Palette. This palette will keep your acrylics moist while painting. Go to "Masterson Art Products" official website for more information! SUGGESTED PAINT COLORS TO BUY: RED (warm color): Cadmium Red RED (cool color): Alizarin Crimson YELLOW (warm color): Cadmium Yellow or Indian Yellow YELLOW (cool color): Lemon Yellow or Cadmium Lemon BLUE (warm color): French Ultramarine BLUE (cool color): Prussian Blue or Cerulean Blue GREEN: Hooker's Green, Sap Green, or Phthalo Green ORANGE: Cadmium Orange VIOLET: Dioxazine Purple or Phthalo Purple BROWN: Burnt Umber BLACK: Ivory Black or Mars Black WHITE: Titanium White ADDITIONAL COLORS: Raw Sienna and Burnt Sienna Buy art supplies at these websites: Dick Blick Jerry's Artarama Cheap Joe's Art Stuff Art Supply Warehouse/ASW Express

2. Which is the best oil, acrylic, or watercolor?

Actually, this is a personal question only an artist himself or herself can answer. Which medium do you prefer? Which one do you like to paint in? Do you use all three?

3. i want to paint a design on the side of my dresser should i use my oil paints or my acrylic?

You might try the acrylics. If you want them to last, you might purchase a spray can of clear acrylic sealer. You can get it at an art or craft store or wal-mart in the craft section for under $6.00. This sealer will not only seal the acrylic to make it permanent but will bring out the brightness of the colors. And it will also seal and make permanent anything--oil or acrylic or watercolor paint, pencil, charcoal, ink, marker, oil or chalk pastels, crayon, even over other varnishes or shellacks. So if you have other paints already on the cabinet or dresser, this sealer will make them permanent also

Can I Fill My Own Acrylic Nails?
Can I fill my own acrylic nails?It you have not worked with acrylic nails before you might have a hard time getting them to look smooth. It takes practice. People go to school to learn how to do this. Both my mother and aunt were manicurist so I learned by watching them over and over. You will need: acrylic primer cuticle cutters black nail file buffer and nail polish brush 1) remove nail polish 2) push your cutcles back 3)cut any stray cuticles 4)file the area of acrylic nail near the cuticle that you will be filling 5) dip brush into primer 6)dip brush into acrylic 7)apply acrylic to area and mash into place until it covers all the area that needs to be filled and a small part of the acrylic nail. Do this to all nails 8) file acrylic until it is smooth and blends perfectly. 9) buff nails 10) wash hands 11) polish nails It sounds easier than it is. It's difficult to do someone else's nails when you do not know what you are doing. And even more difficult to do your own. I would personally save my money and it done professionally.— — — — — —Any tips for first time getting acrylic nails?You can see the difference in nail bits that need to be refilled. They can have color fade. Or just look plain worn. And it takes a bit of work to bite fake nails! And you do need them filled every two weeks. Your top part on the "clear natural" color would grow causing a sort of gap in between your nail and skin (top of curve on your nail where new nail grows). Hope this helps!.— — — — — —How to be safe when getting acrylic nails?I do not go to salon, I only buy "fake nails" from family dollar store for $1 to 3 and glue too, then I attach to my nail but you can learn how to do a better job from youtube that teach how to have fake nails on fingernails prevent from falling off. It would only fall off if you get wrong glue and wash in water, because water is enemy of glue. Also it helps to have fake nails stay longer when dryer.— — — — — —how long do acrylic nails last?Acrylic nails last up to 2 weeks then you get them filled, they are very nice, attract dirt, and if you get them make sure you clean underneath them evey night, and if you chip them, you can get them fixed so it all tends how you keep them up— — — — — —is a woman high maintenence if she has acrylic nails?Nopers. Acrylic nails are VERY common. And the best nail technicians can make them look like real nails. Which their clients never let on they are fake— — — — — —Ho do I do acrylic nails myself?You can not buy the real materials to do acrylic nails without a cosmetology license from your state. So no, you can not do them at home yourself. I work in a salon and the women who do the nails can not even do their own without it looking shotty. If you want to go the cheap route, just get the plastic nails you glue on. They will fall off in a couple days, but they will be good for an event like a wedding or school dance.— — — — — —How do you ask for fake/acrylic nails ?Just say you would like a full set of acrylics, and they will ask you what style you want ie - white tip , coloured tip / natural etc etc— — — — — —How to remove Acrylic nails at home?clip tipsz off soak in acetone (to melt off & make it less painful) use a toothpick or cuticle pusher to remove them— — — — — —What's the easy way to remove acrylic nails at home?First of all, nail polish remover will not remove acrylic nails. Buy pure acetone. Pour some in a GLASS bowl. If your acrylics have a gel overlay then be sure to file the nails first to break the seal of the gel. If you do not do this, no amount of soaking will touch the acrylic. Do one hand at a time. Soak the nails for about 20 minutes. Using an orangewood stick, scrape the softened acrylic from the nail. DO NOT remove the nails from the acetone. Doing so will only cause it to set up again. Soak some more and scrape some more until all the product is off the nail. It will take time but this is the best way to remove the acrylics without huring your natural nail.
