Can You Paint Over Chipped Nail Polish?

Written by Tara

Yes. Fortunately, there is no real downside to painting on top. The only thing to consider is how it may affect the aesthetics of your nails. With the gel manicure already on the nails, you must be careful not to layer up on polish so much that you end up with really thick nails.

If it is store-bought nail polish that has chipped, you can simply paint over it with the same color. If it is gel, there are two main options. The first option is that you can buff the nail surface to break down the top layer. This is to help the new coat you’re going to apply stick better.

Generally Can you color nail polish with paint? You can use acrylic paint in place of nail polish. It is great choice if you want a vibrant color. It also dries really fast, so it can be very convenient if you’re in a hurry. Acrylic paints can also be very affordable!
