Hi! I wanted to say that I absolutely love your nail art and the little details that you put into it. I was wondering how long it would take to do on average a picture so complicated on one nail... Thanks -Emilie
Thanks so much! More complicated images can take some time, especially portraits. I think the longest I have spent on a nail design is probably 3 to 4 hours. Normally I can do a mani with nail art in about an hour and a half.
Hi, you do really intricate and detailed nail art, do you use nail polish or just normal craft paint? I do nail art (not half as good as yours!) but find that I easily run out of expensive nail polishes so I'm trying to find a cheaper alternative! Any suggestions? Thanks :)
I paint my nails first with regular nail polish, then use acrylic paints for the actual art. I use a very small nail art brush (Winning Nails Nail Art Brush size 306 from Sally Beauty Supply) and thin the acrylic paint with water. The acrylic paint I use is the inexpensive kind you can find at Michael’s Crafts and Walmart, like CraftSmart and Americana brands. They usually sell for less than 2 dollars per tube. These will last a LONG time. Check out the FAQ section on my blog at SonomaNailArt for more information and to see my tools. Thanks so much and have fun!
