SPECTRUM COLOR ART DROPS

Spectrum Color Art Drops can be added to any acrylic liquid monomer or used pure to create customized color acrylic nails.

Acrylic liquid customizing color drops allow your to create a "spectrum" of color acrylic nails.  Available in three primary colors that can intermixed to achieve pretty much any color in the rainbow.  Just a few drops in any acrylic monomer can create a glass nail effect.  The more drops you add, the more intense the color hue - it is under your control.  If you want pure, opaque color you may use the color drops directly from the bottle and do not dilute with liquid monomer.

It's easy to achieve a "spectrum" of colors with these intermixable color drops by being able to control the hue and intensity with each drop.  With a built in dropper in each bottle so you can add just one drop into traditional monomer and see the color changes instantly.  It's fun to experiment and create customized color acrylic for endless nail design possibilities.   If you are looking for a solid color acrylic, Spectrum Color Art Drops are versatile enough to be used straight from the bottle.  Just add the drops directly into a dappen dish, no need to dilute in acrylic liquid monomer.

 

Having a color mixing chart is helpful if you are looking to achieve a specific shade..

Let the fun begin with three primary color - red, yellow and blue.

These three are taken as the basis for mixing all other colors. If you mix these primary colors in equal parts, you'll get a neutral color, usually a murky gray (it depends on the pigments you use).

 

When you mix any two primary colors, you get the secondary colors:

  • yellow and blue produce green
  • blue and red produce purple
  • red and yellow produce orange

This leaves each primary color with a complementary color (mixed from the other two primaries). Blue/orange, red/green, and yellow/purple are complementary to each other.

 

Obviously, the fun really starts when you go on mixing primary and secondary colors. This gives you all the fabulous hues around the color wheel, from greenish blues to yellowish greens. These are sometimes called ‘tertiary’ colors.

When you align the 3 primary colors with the secondary and 'tertiary' colors around the color wheel chart, the complementary colors always sit directly opposite each other.  Each pair complement (= 'complete') each other to produce a neutral color. Mix two complementary colors, and you'll get the old murky gray.

 

Experiment and have fun!
