Nail Paint For Women

What Is A Nail Paint?

Nail paint(also known as nail varnish) is a lacquer that can be applied to the human fingernail or toenails to decorate and protect the nail plates. The formulation has been revised repeatedly to enhance its decorative effects, and to suppress cracking or flaking. Nail paint consists of a mix of an organic polymer and several other components, depending on the brand. People use this liquid to create both simple and complicated designs with bright colors, charms, or other.

What Is Nail Paint Made Up Of?

Nail paint consists of a film-forming polymer dissolved in a volatile organic solvent.

Nitrocellulose that is dissolved in butyl acetate or ethyl acetate is common. This basic formulation is expanded to include the following:

Plasticizers to yield non-brittle films: Dibutyl Phthalate and camphor are typical plasticizers.

Dyes and pigments:

Representative compounds include chromium oxide greens, chromium hydroxide, ferric ferrocyanide, stannic oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, carmine, ultramarine, and manganese violet.

Opalescent pigments:

The glittery/shimmer look in the color can be conferred by mica, bismuth oxychloride, natural pearls, and aluminum powder.


Base Coat
This type of nail paints a clear, milky-colored, or opaque pink paint formula that is used specifically before applying nail paint to the nail. The purpose of it is to strengthen nails, restore moisture to the nail, and/or help the paint adhere to the nail so staining will not occur and the manicure lasts longer than without a base coat.


Top Coat
This type of nail paints a clear colored paint formula that is used specifically after applying nail paint to the nail. It forms a hardened barrier for the nail that can prevent chipping, scratching and peeling. Many top coats are marketed as "quick-drying." Top coats can help the underlying colored paint dry quickly as well.


Gel paints a long-lasting variety of nail paint made up of a type of methacrylate polymer. It is painted on the nail similar to traditional nail polish but does not dry.


Matte paint is like regular polish but has a purposely dull finish rather than a shine. It can be purchased as a regular base coat in ranges of different colors. Matte nail paint can also be found in a top coat. A matte top coat is most useful for painting over any dry base color, giving it a different appearance. The matte top coat paint will dull the shine from a regular base coat polish. Matte paint has become very popular over the years, particularly since it can be used in nail art applications, where designs can be created on the nail using the contrast of both shiny and matte surfaces.
