What colour nail polish should I use with fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Most fatjunkie nail tattoos are opaque which means the nail tattoos can be applied on most colours but lighter colours work best. Please refer to product descriptions to find out if a particular set is opaque.  

However, you should definitely avoid placing nail tattoos on nail polish that is a similar colour to the nail tattoo itself as this would cause the nail tattoo to blend in.

Please note some of the nail tattoos designs may incorporate transparent areas which appear white on the backing paper. When applied to nails, the transparent areas will reveal the colour of your nail polish. Which fatjunkie nail designs have transparent areas? Please refer to the product descriptions.

Which top coats should I avoid?

Other than the recommended top coats above, opt for regular top coats rather than specialty top coats like quick dry top coats, high shine top coats and top coats that are also base coats.

Can fatjunkie nail tattoos be used with gel polish?

Yes, fatjunkie nail tattoos can be used with gel polish. Gelish and Anny are recommended.

Please note after curing, gel polish leaves a sticky residue which can be removed with gel cleaners. Fatjunkie nail tattoos should be applied after the stickiness has been removed.

How long do fatjunkie nail tattoos last?

The life of fatjunkie nail tattoos largely depends on the quality of your nail polish and top coat. If applied correctly, fatjunkie nail tattoos last 1-6 days with acrylic nail polish.  Additional layers of top coat will provide more protection.

When used with gel polish/shellac, the nail tattoos last as long as the gel polish.

NAIL ART BRUSHES

What sort of nail art brushes do you sell?

The fatjunkie shop stocks brushes from Princeton Artist Brush Co's Decorative Miniature Synthetic Sable Series 3050. The fatjunkie shop are currently the only stockist of Princeton Decorative Miniature brushes in Australia. These super fine brushes are used by professional nail artists and also highly sought-after by decorative artists and painters of miniatures. Fatjunkie has spent a lot of money trying to find the best brushes for nail art and when she stumbled on these brushes in 2013, she has not used any other. She is still using the same set she first purchased back in 2013.

How should I care for my nail art brushes?

Princeton brushes are an investment. If used and cared for properly, your brush will last longer and perform better. Here are some tips to protect your brushes and save you money:

  1. Do not immerse brush in nail polish up to the ferrule (metal band). Wet polish in this area is hard to clean and even harder if it dries.
  2. Never leave brush soaking in nail polish, nail polish remover or water for extended periods of time.
  3. Never let brush rest on its hair end.
  4. Always store brushes with its plastic hair protector.
  5. Do not allow the silicon handle to come into contact with nail polish remover. The silicon will disintegrate if left in nail polish remover.
  6. After use:
  • remove nail polish with nail polish remover;
  • rinse hairs with lukewarm water;
  • remove excess water;
  • reshape hairs into place with fingers; and
  • stand upright to dry.
