  1. Hi Michelle, can you use regular nail art, waterbased paint, or laquer based paint with the SOGs, and then top coat it in? Have you done this yet? I am a nail tech from the UK..not long been doing the SOG..more acrylcs and nail art, but mainly bought the SOGs for myself! And now obsessed your site, and nail art. Hope you can help me out on this one! If not, i will just have to try it! But it's just getting the time!! Many thanks, Mal

    1. Hi Mal. Yes, you can use a variety of different mediums in conjunction with SOG. Several of them are already represented in this gallery. :) I'm actually putting the final touches on a blog post about using regular nail polish in conjunction with SOG and plan to launch it later this week. I have used traditional nail polish for stamping in many of the designs linked here, but you can also use it for freehand work. To do so, I usually do my base gel and color coats, then remove the tacky layer before top coating. I stamp or apply the nail lacquer for artwork and allow it to dry, then apply two layers of top coat. You can also add art work over a complete mani after the top coat and top coat again if you prefer. But I strongly recommend two layers of top coat to be certain you have sealed the art work. I have wrecked many stamping designs during clean up because I failed to fully seal the image with just one layer of top coat. I will also add that when using traditional lacquer or any non-SOG for art work, you should be sure to wrap the SOG under the tip of the nail a little more than you usually would to allow the top coat to bond fully with the gel coat below. Also, leave ample time for the regular lacquer to dry before adding your SOG top coat to avoid wrinkling.

      As for water based paints, the Great Pumpkin mani pictured above was done with acrylic paints over a SOG mani then sealed with SOG top coat. I have found that acrylic paint does work sandwiched between two layers of gel, but you have to be certain that it is completely sealed with the top coat. Sadly, the Great Pumpkin mani lasted only a few days, so know that there is a risk when using acrylic paint on the tips of the nail. After a few days, normal tip wear will allow water to penetrate the gel at the tips and the acrylic paint will start to dissolve. Once that happens, the gel layers will separate and lift. But I have used it successfully on other areas of the nail where less wear is evident over time. I plan to try again at the tips but next time seal the acrylic design with regular lacquer top coat before applying my gel top coat to see if that helps.

      I hope this helps. Please feel free to follow me on facebook, pinterest and/or instagram and share your designs if you decide to try it. I would love to see what you create. :)

      Finally, you can also use glitter and pure pigments with SOG. The possibilities are endless.
