even ‘non-toxic’ acrylics are not made for skin :/ they can cause a myriad of problems, i cant clearly remember them all atm but don’t face paint with ‘em, don’t finger paint with ‘em, just keep ‘em on paintbrushes and paper.
well yeah don’t put them on your fucking face but it’s not like a tiny spot on your fingers from painting your nails is doing to do damage, and it’s totally safe being used on nails. it’s just annoying to get off.
no… on a post like this one but with lots more discussion, someone had said their friend who fingerpainted with them had problems with the skin on his fingers and hands… keep them off your skin, i’m pretty sure if it messes up skin it’ll fuck up your nails too :////
besides, better safe than sorry? it’s just. ppl are gonna see this and think it’s safe to use acrylics this way and it’s really not, that’s all
Like avividheartt said acrylic pant is a pain to take off which is why you put a base coat of sorts down. It’s will stan your nails if you don’t because it is super pigmented.
amphibi people can be sensitive to a variety of things. And just because it does not bode well with their body chemistry does not make it toxic. I have been using it for a long time now and my nails and hands are in fantastic shape.
I use craft and student acrylics. Once you get to the artist grade THEN you see toxic paints depending on colour. Cadmium for example(think lead). But unless you are spraying and breathing it in, or you have decided to replace your normal body moisturizer with it it can be used for painting safely. Nail polish has harsher ingredients then run of the mill craft or student acrylics.
Also using acrylic paint for nail art isn’t new and it’s not uncommon. You can find places selling sets of the exact same paints but marketed for nails. The only difference is they usually come in a pack with a bunch of colours and the tubes are smaller.
Don’t do this, don’t do that.. unless you’re a doctor or some sort of specialist, then you need to not say anything at all. What may have happened to one person may not happen to the other million out there… just sayin’….
