What are “color drops” for acrylic monomers?


I loved Lynn Lammers’ October 2009 NAILS cover nails, but what are the “color drops” mentioned in Step 4 of the Behind the Scenes? And where can I get them?


Color drops are used to color acrylic monomer. You then use clear acrylic powder, and it takes its color from the now-colored liquid. The ones Lammers’ used are Galaxy Rainbow Drops, but several other acrylic manufacturers make these drops too. Galaxy drops are available at Young Nails also makes Imagination Art Liquid drops. — NAILS Eds.
