I’ve been known to use valentine nails for as long as I can remember. I’ve just never paid more attention to them. They’ve been used for years as a form of art and love, but this week I decided to put some thought into how I use my valentine nails. I wanted to make them more like art and less like a form of nail art.
The idea was to create a form of nail art that I would like to keep forever, but just to have it look like it is always there, like a painting, not something that is constantly changing when you are playing with it. Ive been wanting to create this with acrylic for a while now. Ive never really liked the process of painting with metal, so this was my first step to trying to do something similar.
I love acrylic nail art, and I also love the idea of painting my nails with acrylic. So I wanted to go the safe route and just use the best quality acrylic I could find. Instead, I used a couple of my favorite things in the world: Vallejo White and Vallejo Amber.
Vallejo White is a very subtle but beautiful shade that works well for this kind of nail art. Vallejo Amber is a more obvious shade, but it also works well. I had trouble blending the two colors, so it might not work for everyone. I would recommend adding a bit of Vallejo White to your base coat just to make it more of an opaque color.
Vallejo White makes for good base coat, though you don’t need it for acrylic. To make the color more opaque, you can buy a couple ounces of Vallejo Amber and mix it in with some acrylic paint. I really like this mixed base, though it’s not for everyone.
The acrylic paint in this shot is very opaque, so if you want to blend it out, you will have to give it a little coat of Vallejo White to make it more opaque. The base coat is a little bit of Vallejo Amber.
For more opaque acrylics, you can use the Vallejo White (or Vallejo Amber) and Vallejo Black in a 1:1 ratio.
The color is also a little bit darker than Vallejo Amber. You can get a very similar effect with Vallejo Black or Vallejo White mixed with a few drops of Vallejo Amber.
One step to getting a more opaque color, is to make sure that the base coat is on the glossy side, so that the whole thing becomes much more opaque.The Vallejo Black in 11 ratio is a good base for this project. I find that it works best with acrylics that are very thin and run the whole colorway.
Vallejo Black is the perfect base for this project. It works great with acrylics that are very thin and run the whole colorway.
