I am currently working on a project involving Nail Polish and Waterslide Decals. I have been working with numerous decal companies however all of them have had the same problem and I cannot find an answer. I was hoping that someone here might be able to help? Or at least point me in the right direction.
We are developing a waterslide decal that once it is applied will need to be sealed with a clear coat of nail polish on top. We have samples of decals from China that work very well for this application. However, we want to purchase from an american manufacturer. We have tested several different decals from different american companies - the problem is that they all dissolve/melt into a mess once the nail polish coat is applied.
The American decals are made with solvent-based lacquer inks.
I assume that the solvents in the nail polish are reacting with the inks?
I would so appreciate any information you might have concerning this problem.
