EMi developed an original technique of nail art «TEXTONE» and unique material to create metallic mirror nails. Texton paint is a special paint with a metallic sheen, that effectively emphasizes any relief or 3D pattern on the nails. The Texton paint looks very nice on nails.

  • Texton can be applied several layers for rich color, it will not look ponderous.
  • Texture of paints makes it easy to mix them to give a variety of shades.
  • The metallic nail paints are useful because vials look like a regular nail polish, a brush is the same.
  • Texton reveals any surface irregularities. That can be both a plus and a minus. It is good to emphasize the volume pattern, but somewhat inconvenient if you need to cover a perfectly flat surface of the nail.
  • The paints dry in a natural way without the UV lamp. It is very convenient to use at home. If you want to dry the paint very quickly, use a UV lamp.
  • These paints was originally designed to be combined with many other materials, so its scope is very broad. Texton nails designs can be performed using any decorative elements: liquid stones, stikers, velvet sand, crystals and others.
