Precautions while using Nail Paint
A few safety precautions you must know before you start doing your Nail Paint.
1. Nail Polish
Nail polish is a lacquer that can be applied to the human fingernails or toenails to decorate and protect the nail plate. The formulation has been revised repeatedly to enhance its decorative effects and to suppress cracking or flaking. Nail polish consists of an organic polymer with various additives
2. History
Nail polish originated in China, and its use dates back to 3000 BC. Around 600 BC, during the Zhou dynasty, the royal house preferred the colors gold and silver. However, red and black eventually replaced these metallic colors as royal favourites. During the Ming dynasty, nail polish was often made from a mixture that included beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes, and gum Arabic. In Egypt, the lower classes wore pale colors, whereas high society painted their nails red. By the turn of the 9th century, nails were tinted with scented red oils, and polished or buffed. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, people pursued a polished rather than a painted look by massaging tinted powders and creams into their nails, then buffing them shiny. One such polishing product sold around this time was Grafs Hyglo nail polish paste.
3. The best time to apply nail polish is when they are completely dry
If you apply nail polish while your nails are wet, or right before they will become wet, they will be prone to chipping. Start off by filing your nails in the desired shape. Buffing them also helps to smooth the nail base and makes it easier to apply nail polish. Prepare your work area and then wash your hands thoroughly. Pat dry, then apply a small amount of water and nail polish remover to a cotton ball and swab your nails to remove any oils for better adhesion. You could also try facial toner which isnt quite as drying to the skin.
4. What nail polish removers are made of
While people have been colouring their nails since as far back as 3000 BC, using the pigment of plants and flowers, polish itself and removers were an offshoot of the invention of automotive paint in the 1920s. Today s removers are made up mainly of a solvent needed to dissolve the resins in polish such as acetone, methyl acetate or methyl ethyl ketone. These chemicals have numerous other uses; you can find them in paint thinners, glue, dry erase markers and nail polish itself. All three are permitted in cosmetics in Canada, the United States and the European Union. Of the three, acetone is used most frequently in polish removers.
5. Start by applying a clear base coat
First, take a good amount of polish on the brush and apply a coat right in the centre of the nail. Take some more polish on the brush and apply coats on the two sides of the nails. Make sure that the entire nail is covered in these 3 swipes. Never keep on repainting the nail, it thickens the polish and you may smudge it. Let the base coat dry completely.
