Best Answer

the easiest way to take off acrylics is to soak them in an ACETONE nail polish remover and them use a cuticle stick to lightly pry them off. It will take awhile for them to get soft

-What I do is dip a cotton ball in Acetone, set it on top of my nail, and wrap it in tin foil for about 45 minutes to an hour. After that I take off the foil and the acrylic is usually pretty simple to take off. or just pick them off haha

Will alcohol take acrylic nails off?

No. Get a bin of water or a sink full of water as warm as you can handle it, or as warm as feels comfortable, and leave it in there for ten minutes, then begin to peel them off with your hands still submerged in the warm water. I have lots of experience with acrylics, for about 2 years I got them nonstop every week.

Will acrylic paint wash off the glass easily?

Not easily, but it will wash off. I use a glass palette to mix acrylics on and I have used acrylics to paint temporary work on windows and mirrors. For the palette, either wash immediately after use, while the paint is still wet, or let it dry and peel it off. For windows and mirrors, I use a razor scraper for small areas and a soft bristle brush (nylon) and hot soapy water for large areas.

When you use the water mixable oil paints do you mix acrylic with the paint?

No they are still oil paints, they have been made water soluble but are still not compatible with other water based media.__________________________________________________________________You can use water mixable paints (WMO's) over acrylics very dramatically. You can do the background and what ever else you want with the acrylics, let them dry completely, and wipe on a very fine layer of WMO linseed oil or my preference, walnut oil from M.Graham.Wipe off any excess oil. You want this to be very thin so it acts as a binder to the acrylics and makes them go on very smoothly.You are free to paint large areas of just small high lights with the WMO's. What ever you want. The paints will dry slower than the acrylics, but wash up with soap and water just like acrylics.For more discussion on WMO's and Walnut oil, go to the link below, WMO;sJudy Filarecki
