Description:

TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention relates to a method for providing highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up on a nail and the skin with optional drawing lines, and an ornamentation set or a make-up set for providing the above ornamentation or make-up.

BACKGROUND ART

A method in which a liquid prepared by mixing and dispersing a coloring material comprising a dye and a pigment and a fixing resin in a solvent is applied on a nail and the skin by means of a brush or a brush tip and in which the solvent is volatilized to thereby fix the drawn lines has so far been usually known as a method for providing highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up on a nail and the skin with optional drawing lines. In the above case, in order to obtain drawn lines having a brilliant high luminance, a scaly pearl pigment, aluminum flakes, lame particles and the like are blended as coloring materials.

However, the above scaly coloring materials are unevenly arranged on the drawn lines, and therefore a granular feeling is exerted to make it impossible to produce a continuous glossy feeling. Further, the large particles are liable to cause clogging in the brush or at the brush tip, and therefore it has been difficult to blend the scaly coloring materials at a high concentration.

Also, known as a method for applying a highly luminous scaly coloring material at a high density is a method in which a press powder prepared by mixing a small amount of waxes and oils with the above coloring materials and subjecting the mixture to compression molding is applied by a brush (commercially available, for example, for an eyeshadow). In the above method, however, a large amount of a fixing resin can not be blended, and therefore the defect that the coloring material is liable to peel off after applied is involved therein.

On the other hand, for example, a method in which an adhesive is applied on a coating surface of a nail and the skin and then a transfer foil deposited with aluminum is pressed to contact therewith to thereby transfer drawn lines thereon was proposed in the past in order to express highly luminous drawn lines (refer to, for example, patent documents 1 and 2).

The present inventors carried out reproduction tests based on the respective methods described in the foregoing patent documents 1 and 2 to find that while drawn lines having a continuous metallic glossy feeling were obtained under certain conditions, the transferring property was dispersed according to ambient temperature and a drying time of an adhesive and that it was difficult to simply obtain good drawn lines.

Further, it has been found that involved therein are the problems that applied parts such as nails, the backs of the hands and insides of the upper arms were different in an adhesive performance and that the stable transferring performances can not be obtained. Accordingly, the tests were carried out in various manners by changing the kind and the physical properties of the adhesives and the constitutions of the respective layers of the transfer foil, but the satisfactory transferring performance could not be obtained as well.

BRIEF EXPLANATION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 is a vertical cross-sectional drawing showing one example of the embodiments of the applicator used for a method for providing highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up on a nail and the skin according to the present invention.

MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

The embodiment of the present invention shall be explained below in detail.

In the first embodiment, the method for providing highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up on a nail and the skin according to the present invention is characterized in that an applicator filled with a coating liquid which contains at least water and an O/W type emulsion resin and which has tackiness even after drying is used to coat the coating liquid on a nail and the skin in the form of optional shapes and characters, and then the coated drawn lines are dried; a transfer foil is pressed to contact with the coated drawn lines endowed with tackiness; and the foil is peeled off, whereby highly luminous or highly masking drawn lines are transferred.

In the second embodiment, the method of the present invention is characterized in that an applicator filled with the same coating liquid as in the first embodiment described above is used to coat the coating liquid on a nail and the skin in the form of optional shapes and characters, and then the coated drawn lines are dried; coloring material powders are pressed contact with the coated drawn lines endowed with tackiness; and the powders left outside the coated drawn lines are brushed off by means of a cleaning utensil, whereby highly luminous or highly masking drawn lines are obtained.

“The present invention” referred to in the following explanations includes the first embodiment and the second embodiment each described above.

The coating liquid used in the present invention is characterized by a coating liquid which contains at least an O/W type emulsion resin and water (refined water, ion-exchanged water, purified water and the like) and which has tackiness (stickiness) even after drying.

In the present invention, in order to endow the coating liquid with tackiness after drying, the specific O/W type emulsion resin has to be blended. The O/W type emulsion resin which can be used includes, for example, at least one selected from (acrylate/ethylhexyl acrylate) copolymers and (acrylate/alkyl (C12 to 22) methacrylate) copolymers.

In a case of commercially available products, capable of being used are Nikasol MH-6010, TS-620 (emulsion resins manufactured by Nippon Carbide Industries Co., Inc.) which are (acrylate/ethylhexyl acrylate) copolymers, SOLTEX OPT (emulsion resin manufactured by The Dow Chemical Company) which is an (acrylate/alkyl (C12 to 22) methacrylate) copolymer.

The coating liquid used in the present invention contains the foregoing O/W type emulsion resin and water as the principal components, and the O/W type emulsion resin is blended preferably in a range of 10 to 70% by mass (in terms of a solid content) based on the total amount of the coating liquid.

When the blending amount of the O/W type emulsion resin is less than 10% by mass, the tackiness after drying is short to bring about the problems that the transfer foil is insufficiently peeled off at the subsequent work step or that the highly luminous or highly masking coloring material is weakly fixed and readily peeled off. On the other hand, when the blending amount of the O/W type emulsion resin is too large in excess of 70% by mass, the coating liquid is liable to be dried and solidified at the tip of the applicator, and it is difficult to draw the stable lines. Accordingly, both are not preferred.

Known water-soluble resins for strengthening an adhesive power may be added, in addition to the O/W type emulsion resin described above, as optional components to the coating liquid used in the present invention, and ethanol may be added thereto in order to enhance of a drying property of the drawn lines. However, if ethanol is added in a large amount, the O/W type emulsion resin described above becomes instable, and the satisfactory tackiness is not obtained after drying, so that an addition amount of ethanol is restricted preferably within 20% by mass based on the total amount of the coating liquid.

In addition thereto, known preservatives and thickeners for controlling the viscosity may be added in combination with the coating liquid, and since the tackiness after drying has to remain finally, the materials are selected and controlled so that the suited combination thereof is obtained. Also, known water-soluble resins may be used in combination in order to control the tackiness. The known water-soluble resins referred to in the above case increase gradually in a viscosity with drying and lose tackiness after dried, and therefore when they are used alone, the performances of the present invention are not exerted. However, they can be supplementary blended in order to improve the tackiness in the beginning of drying and enhance the stickiness after transferring the foil. Capable of being used are, for example, Jurymer AT-210 (alkyl acrylate copolymer ammonium) manufactured by Toagosei Co., Ltd., PVP-K90 (polyvinylpyrrolidone) manufactured by Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd., and the like.

The coating liquid used in the present invention contains at least water, the O/W type emulsion resin and, if necessary, the respective blending components described above, and the balance of water. More preferably, an emulsion resin comprising a (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer is blended so as to make it possible to judge a degree of dryness in the drawn lines by a change in a color tone (whiteness) thereof.

In the coating liquid of the present invention, the O/W type emulsion resin described above which is the principal component is usually opalescent and has a little weak coloring property, and the coated drawn lines thereof are slightly less liable to be perceived. In this connection, a method in which coloring materials such as a dye and a pigment are blended is considered, but in this case, an adverse effect is exerted in a certain case on the quality of drawn lines obtained by transferring and the like at subsequent steps. Further, in that case, it is less liable to be judged whether or not the drawn lines are dried, and therefore the emulsion resin comprising a (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer which is an acryl base emulsion resin is preferably blended.

In a case of commercially available products, ROMSPHERE PGL and OPULYN 305 (emulsion resin manufactured by The Dow Chemical Company) are involved as the (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer which can be used.

In respect to a blending amount of the above (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer, it is blended preferably in a range of 2.5 to 10% by mass (in terms of a solid content) based on the total amount of the coating liquid.

When the blending amount of the above (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer is less than 2.5% by mass, a coloring power thereof is weak, and the effects thereof are unsatisfactory. On the other hand, when the blending amount is too large in excess of 10% by mass, that is a factor for inhibiting the tackiness on the coated surface after drying, and therefore it is not preferred as well.

If the coating liquid is blended with the (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer described above, the drawn lines are pale white in coating the coating liquid but clearly increased in whiteness as two minutes pass at room temperature, and after drying, they are provided with a certain whiteness. This makes it possible to locate the coated spots and perceive the drying state of the drawn lines, and therefore the quality in transferring the foil at the subsequent step can be stabilized.

Blending of the (styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer with the coating liquid containing water and the O/W type emulsion resin makes it possible to judge a degree of dryness in the drawn lines by a change in a color tone (whiteness) thereof. To be specific, the drawn lines in coating are transparent to translucent opalescent (pale white drawn lines), and as several minutes (2 minutes) pass at room temperature, the drawn lines are increased clearly in whiteness and turned into a certain whiteness (white color) after drying. This makes it possible to locate the coated spots and perceive the drying state of the drawn lines. Accordingly, a degree of dryness in the drawn lines can be easily judged by a change in a color tone (whiteness) thereof, and the quality in transferring the foil and pressing to contact the coloring material with a nail and the skin at the subsequent steps can be stabilized.

In the present invention, the coating liquid which has tackiness even after drying means, to be specific, such a coating liquid that a coating film having a thickness of 50 μm formed by using the coating liquid is dried for 30 minutes under the environment of a temperature of 25° C. and a humidity of 65% and has a tackiness of ball number 1 or more in a slope system ball tack test (a slope angle: 30°, 25° C.) after drying.

The slope system ball tack test in the present invention (including examples described later) is a measuring method employed in JIS Z 0237:2009. In the measuring method, total 31 kinds of balls excluding 5/64, 7/64, 9/64, 15/64 and 17/64 balls among steel balls which comprise two kinds of high carbon chromium bearing steel materials prescribed in JIS G 4805 and in which “nominal sizes of balls” in JIS B 1501 are sizes of 1/16 to 1 are put on the top of a triangle device equipped with slope plates having a slope angle of 20°, 30° or 40°; the ball rolls on a runaway (100 mm) and stops on an adhesive surface (100 mm) subsequent to the runaway; a numerical value obtained by multiplying a “nominal size of ball” of the balls stopped on the adhesive surface by 32 is designated as a “ball number”, and the test result is shown by the largest ball number of the stopped balls. This method is called as well J. Dow method.

In the present invention, preferred is the coating liquid having such tackiness that a coating film having a thickness of 50 μm formed by using the coating liquid having the composition described above is dried for 30 minutes under the environment of a temperature of 25° C. and a humidity of 65% and has a tackiness of ball number of 1 or more in the slope system ball tack test (a slope angle: 30°, 25° C.) after drying according to the measuring method described above. The stronger the tackiness is, the better the coating liquid is, and therefore an upper limit of the ball number is preferably as large as possible.

The coating liquid having such tackiness that the ball number described above is provided can be prepared by suitably combining the kind and the amount of the O/W type emulsion resin and other blend components.

The coating liquid used in the present invention can be prepared by a usual method, and it is filled in, for example, an applicator and applied on a nail and the skin.

The applicator which can be used shall not specifically be restricted as long as a suitable amount of the coating liquid can be coated on a nail and/or the skin in the form of optional shapes and characters, and capable of being listed are, for example, an applicator prepared by filling the coating liquid in a bottle vessel equipped with a brush and an applicator prepared by filling the coating liquid in a coating vessel equipped with a coating means (coating tip) such as a brush or a pen feed.

To be specific, applicators prepared by filling the coating liquid in a bottle equipped with a brush or a vessel equipped with a brush, a coating tip of a pen type or the like via a valve mechanism at a tip of the vessel are preferred for coating optional characters and patterns.

For example, an applicator A shown in FIG. 1 can be listed. This applicator A has a constitution of a conventional applicator of pen type in which a front holder 3 and a rear barrel 4 are combined to thereby store the coating liquid and in which a valve rod 5, an applying feed 6 of a pen type as a coating tip, a mouthpiece 7, an inner feed 8, a stirring ball 9 and the like are held. The valve rod 5 is opened by pressing the applying feed 6 of a pen type onto the skin and the like, and the coating liquid is supplied to the applying feed 6 and coated. It is a matter of course that the present embodiment may be applied not only to the above applicator but also to applicators of other modes. A cap main body 2 is interfit with an ornament 1 for a cap and integrated to form a cap. The cap surrounds the applying feed 6 by interfitting with the front holder 3 and can shut down the flow of air through an outside space, and therefore the applying feed 6 can be prevented from being dried.

In the present invention, the users apply the coating liquid of the present invention on a nail and/or the skin with the tip of the respective applicators described above to draw optional shapes (patterns and the like) and characters thereon, and then the drawn shapes and characters are dried at room temperature (25° C.). They are dried preferably for at least 1 minute, usually for 1 to 10 minutes and more preferably for 1 to 5 minutes. In conventional arts, an adhesive property of an adhesive has been changed every moment according to a drying time, and if too early, the adhesive property has been weak to make it impossible to transfer a transfer foil. In contrast with this, if the drying time is long, the coating liquid is solidified, and the transfer foil has not been able to be transferred as well. Also, it has been difficult to adhere lame particles as well. The work has so far had to be carried out in a certain range of a drying time in order to transfer well a transfer foil, and since the drying time depends on an ambient temperature and a humidity, it has not been easy to carry out the transferring. In the present invention, while an initial drying time is different depending on an ambient temperature and a humidity, the tackiness is kept after drying, and therefore transferring and the like in the stable quality become possible without worrying about the delicate drying time.

In the first embodiment in the present invention, after the coated surface is dried, the transfer foil is pressed on and brought into contact with the coated drawn lines endowed with tackiness, and the foil is peeled off to thereby transfer highly luminous or highly masking drawn lines, whereby the targeted nail and skin can be provided with highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up with optional drawn lines. Also, in the second embodiment, the coloring material powders are pressed on and brought into contact with the coated drawn lines endowed with tackiness, and the powders left outside the coated drawn lines are brushed off by means of a cleaning utensil to thereby obtain highly luminous or highly masking drawn lines, whereby the targeted nail and skin can be provided with highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up with optional drawn lines.

In the first embodiment of the present invention, the transfer foil shall not specifically be restricted as long as it can transfer highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up, and capable of being listed are, for example, a thin film prepared by coating 1) a resin film of PET and the like as a substrate with 2) a coloring layer (a release layer), 3) an aluminum deposition layer and 4) an adhesive layer in this order, and a film called a so-called pigment foil having no aluminum deposition layer. In general, heat is applied from the PET surface of 1) to heat and melt the resins of 2) the coloring layer and 4) the adhesive layer, and patterns and the like are transferred on a matter to be transferred thereon. In the present invention, however, preferred is a cold foil having no heat-sensitive hot melt layer in which the resin layers of 2) the coloring layer and 4) the adhesive layer can readily be released without applying heat. To be specific, the layers can be more easily released by reducing a thickness of the resin layer and blending silica so that cohesive failure is liable to be caused. The coloring material used in the coloring layer may be so-called dyes and pigments which can be used for industrial applications, and preferred are coloring materials which can be used for cosmetics, such as titanium oxide, iron oxide, iron blue pigments, ultramarine blue pigments, D & C Black No. 2, FD & C Blue No. 1 and lake pigments, FD & C Yellow No. 5 and lake pigments, FD & C Yellow No. 6 and lake pigments, D & C Red No. 6, D & C Red No. 7, D & C Red No. 34 and D & C Red No. 30.

In the present first embodiment, the transfer foil on which aluminum is deposited is used in order to obtain highly luminous or highly masking drawn lines, and it is no problem as well to use the foregoing pigment foil which is constituted only by the coloring layer and the adhesive layer without providing the deposition layer. The continuous coloring layer is transferred on the surface of the drawn lines endowed with tackiness, and therefore the drawn lines having glossiness can be obtained.

In the second embodiment of the present invention, the coloring material such as flaky pearl pigments, aluminum flakes, lame particles and highly masking pigments is sprinkled on the surface of the drawn lines endowed with tackiness and pressed lightly thereon, and then the surplus coloring material is removed by means of a cleaning utensil such as a brush, a tissue and a paintbrush, whereby the coloring material remains on the drawn lines at a high density. Accordingly, the highly luminous or highly masking (high density) drawn lines as compared with the drawn lines obtained by coating the coloring material dispersed in the liquid can be obtained. Also, since the tackiness described above is strongly left on the dried surface of the coating liquid, the coloring material is fixed thereon, and therefore the drawn lines which are less liable to be peeled off from the skin and the like as compared with the press powder described above can be obtained.

In the method of the present invention constituted in the manner described above, highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up can be easily provided on a nail and the skin with optional drawn lines.

Also, the ornamentation set or the make-up set of the present invention is used for readily providing highly luminous or highly masking ornamentation or make-up on a nail and the skin with optional drawing lines, and prepared is a set obtained by combining a vessel or an applicator filled and the coating liquid described above, an ink jet cartridge and an ink jet printer with transfer foil on which aluminum is deposited in order to obtain highly luminous or highly masking drawn lines, a pigment foil, and coloring material powders of a flaky pearl pigment, an aluminum flake, lame particles, a highly masking pigment or the like, whereby the method of the present invention can be readily carried out.

EXAMPLES

Next, the present invention shall be explained in detail with reference to examples, but the present invention shall not be restricted by the following examples.

Example 1

O/W type emulsion resin30.0% by mass
(SOLTEX OPT, acrylate/alkyl (C12 to 22) methacrylate
copolymer, solid content: 48%, manufactured by The
Dow Chemical Company)
Ethanol10.0% by mass
(Styrene/alkyl acrylate) copolymer20.0% by mass
(ROMSPHERE PGL, solid content: 25%, manufactured
by The Dow Chemical Company)
Water (refined water)24.0% by mass
Tackiness controlling resin15.0% by mass
(Jurymer AT-210, manufactured by Toagosei Co., Ltd.)
Hydroxyethyl cellulose (thickener) 0.1% by mass
Phenoxyethanol (preservative) 0.9% by mass

The raw material components described above were mixed and stirred to obtain a coating liquid.

A tackiness of the coating liquid was measured by the slope system ball tack measuring method described above to find that the ball number was 1.

The coating liquid was filled in a vessel shown in FIG. 1 in which a coating tip of a pen type comprising polyacetal resin was provided at a tip via a valve mechanism to prepare an applicator.

Next, the coating liquid was discharged from the coating tip of a pen type to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, a golden transfer foil (cold foil NSA-6, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and slowly peeled off, and highly luminous and highly masking golden drawn lines were transferred on the arm. Similarly, after dried for 10 minutes and after dried for 20 minutes, the transfer foil was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, and highly luminous and highly masking golden drawn lines were transferred on the arm regardless of the time.

In coating the coating liquid on the arm, the coating liquid was changed from transparency to a translucent opalescent color (pale white drawn lines), and as 2 minutes passed at room temperature as described above, the coating liquid was increased clearly in whiteness. After drying, the drawn lines were provided with a certain whiteness (white color), and it was found that the coated spots were readily located and that the drying state of the drawn lines could be perceived. Also, it was found that a degree of dryness in the drawn lines could be judged readily by a change in a color tone (whiteness) thereof. Also, a degree of dryness in the drawn lines could be readily judged by a change in a color tone (whiteness) thereof as well in Examples 2 to 5.

Example 2

The coating liquid and the applicator obtained in Example 1 described above were used to discharge the coating liquid from the coating tip in the same manner to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, silver lame powders (Diamond Piece H-55UC, average particle size: 150 μm, manufactured by Daiya Kogyo Co., Ltd.) were sprinkled thereon and pressed with a facial tissue, and then the surplus lame powders were removed by means of a brush to find that highly luminous and highly masking silver drawn lines were left on the arm.

Example 3

The components were mixed and stirred in the same composition as in Example 1 to obtain a coating liquid, except that the ON type emulsion resin 30% by mass used in Example 1 was substituted with the following emulsion resin 30% by mass:

O/W type emulsion resin30.0% by mass
(Nikasol MH-6010, acrylate/ethylhexyl acrylate
copolymer, solid content: 58%, manufactured
by Nippon Carbide Industries Co., Inc.)

A tackiness of the coating liquid was measured by the slope system ball tack measuring method described above to find that the ball number was 2.

The coating liquid was filled, as was the case with Example 1, in the vessel shown in FIG. 1 in which a coating tip of a pen type comprising polyacetal resin was provided at a tip via a valve mechanism to prepare an applicator.

Next, the coating liquid was discharged from the coating tip of a pen type to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, the golden transfer foil (cold foil NSA-6, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, and highly luminous and highly masking golden drawn lines were transferred on the arm.

Example 4

The components were mixed and stirred in the same composition as in Example 1 to obtain a coating liquid, except that the O/W type emulsion resin 30% by mass used in Example 1 was substituted with the following emulsion resin 30% by mass:

O/W type emulsion resin30.0% by mass
(Nikasol TS-620, acrylate/ethylhexyl acrylate
copolymer, solid content: 58%, manufactured
by Nippon Carbide Industries Co., Inc.)

A tackiness of the coating liquid was measured by the slope system ball tack measuring method described above to find that the ball number was 2.

The coating liquid was filled, as was the case with Example 1, in the vessel shown in FIG. 1 in which a coating tip of a pen type comprising polyacetal resin was provided at a tip via a valve mechanism to prepare an applicator.

Next, the coating liquid was discharged from the pen tip to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, the golden transfer foil (cold foil NSA-6, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, and highly luminous and highly masking golden drawn lines were transferred on the arm.

Example 5

The components were mixed and stirred in the same composition as in Example 1 to obtain a coating liquid, except that the tackiness controlling resin (Jurymer AT-210, manufactured by Toagosei Co., Ltd.) 15% by mass used in Example 1 was changed to PVP-K90 (manufactured by Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd.) 2% by mass and that the balance of 13% was substituted with water (refined water) (sum of water: 37%).

A tackiness of the coating liquid was measured by the slope system ball tack measuring method described above to find that the ball number was 2.

The coating liquid was filled, as was the case with Example 1, in the vessel shown in FIG. 1 in which a coating tip of a pen type comprising polyacetal resin was provided at a tip via a valve mechanism to prepare an applicator.

Next, the coating liquid was discharged from the pen tip to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, the golden transfer foil (cold foil NSA-6, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, and highly luminous and highly masking golden drawn lines were transferred on the arm.

Example 6

The same coating liquid and applicator as in Example 1 were used to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, a green pigment foil (GF-177 Green, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, and highly masking green drawn lines were transferred on the arm.

Example 7

The same coating liquid as in Example 5 was filled in an ink cartridge ICBK57 (manufactured by Seiko Epson Corp.) which was carefully cleaned, and this was set in a PX-W8000 printer (manufactured by Seiko Epson Corp.) which was partially remodeled. Optional patterns were drawn on the back of a hand by means of the above printer, and after dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, the golden transfer foil (cold foil SA-6, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, whereby highly luminous and highly masking golden patterns were transferred on the back of the hand.

Comparative Example 1

The components were mixed and stirred in the same composition as in Example 1 to obtain a coating liquid, except that the O/W type emulsion resin 30% by mass endowed with a tackiness after drying in Example 1 described above was substituted with the following conventional emulsion resin 30% by mass:

O/W type emulsion resin30.0% by mass
(Yodosol GH-800F, alkyl acrylate copolymer
ammonium, solid content: 45%, manufactured
by Akzo Nobel N.V.)

A tackiness of the coating liquid was measured by the slope system ball tack measuring method described above to find that the ball number was smaller than 1 and that it could not be measured. That is, the tackiness after drying was not exerted.

The coating liquid was filled, as was the case with Example 1, in the vessel shown in FIG. 1 in which a coating tip of a pen type comprising polyacetal resin was provided at a tip via a valve mechanism to prepare an applicator.

Next, the coating liquid was discharged from the pen tip to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, the golden transfer foil (cold foil NSA-6, manufactured by Murata Kimpaku Co., Ltd.) was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, and the foil was not transferred on the arm. Also, after dried for 10 minutes and 20 minutes, the foil was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, but the foil was not transferred as well. After 2 minutes, the liquid was insufficiently dried and low in a viscosity, and the sufficiently high tackiness was not exerted. Also, after 10 minutes and 20 minutes, the liquid was dried up, and the resin film was in a surface state in which tackiness is lost, so that the foil was not transferred as well. A point in which the just right tackiness was exerted was supposed to be present between the above periods of time, and since the above time was changed according to the coating thickness, the temperature and the humidity, it was difficult to transfer the foil in a stable quality.

Comparative Example 2

The coating liquid and the applicator obtained in Example 1 described above were used to discharge the coating liquid from the coating tip in the same manner to draw optional patterns on an arm.

After dried at room temperature for 2 minutes, a golden thermal transfer foil (FINE FOIL ST-4-H, manufactured by Katani Sangyo Co., Ltd.) which was usually used was pressed thereon and then slowly peeled off, but the foil was not transferred. The thermal transfer foil which is usually used has a strong strength between a PET film which is a substrate and a release layer, and it can be transferred by melting the release layer by heating. However, it is considered that the release layer can not be released with tackiness of the coating liquid of the present invention.
