I use this paint for my nail art so that I can stamp and sponge without getting polish all over my fingers. Works amazingly well. It dries fast and you can tell its dry because the color gets darker when it is dry. There are a lot of companies selling liquid latex paint in nail polish bottles branded specifically for nail art. Those cost just as much, if not more than this product and you get 1/10th the amount! The trick is with using this instead, is that you have to pour some into a nail polish bottle to use with nail art, using a funnel or just a sheet of wax paper rolled up. Not that you could not use a small brush and dip it directly into the container, except that because it has such a wide opening that is exposed to air, I would imagine that you would either have to close it after every time you dip or else the top layer would dry up. Also, not having the brush concealed from air in between use would cause the paint on the brush to dry too. I just cleaned used nail polish bottles by adding some acetone and shaking them around until the paint was gone to get the job done but I believe you can also purchase empty nail polish bottles on eBay or Amazon really cheap.
