When using Opec Colors such as orange, purple, pink, yellow, rasberry, and flourescent green you must use a white base coat to make the color bright.
When using Metallic Colors you must use silver, gold, and copper base coats to bring out the metallic just like the real cars do.
Airbrushing or using an airbrush is the best tool in painting thick finger nail polish. You can control the flow of paint and it is easy to clearn. You also must clean your airbrush after each color so you dont get spits of anohter color on the project you are going. If you do let it dry for 2 hours light sand it with the finist black water sandpaper and slowly remove it then try spraying again with light coats.
