I Use These...












I must tell you guys now, my utensils are used on a daily basis and are not free from design paint or polish stains. Of course, I could go and buy new equipment but I like that broken in look and feel. Everything is clean, but the stains remain. Its the sign of a hard working nail tech.
*This was a "request" post.* On this post I'm showing the nail art brush that I use (everyday) and my dotter sticks. The brush is used for all the lines and stripes that you see in/on my nail art designs and the dotter sticks are what makes the dots. I have trimmed the hairs on my nail art brush because it comes too thick. If you chose to use the brush as is, your lines will be very thick. It can be used that way but your room on the nail bed/plate will be limited.
Hope you guys like this post.

Thanks for sharing. I do have a set of dotters just like yours I picked up at the beauty supply store. Girl, it's nothing wrong with your brush it is doing it's thang and doing a very good job too :) I saw a set of stripper brushes at Sally's that I may go and pick up. I can see why you use paints because they are more opaque then nail polish.

Yes, they are more opaque. I tried using polish-for nail art-and its no comparision. Dont forget to seal your nail art with a good clear top coat. One with great shine.

Wow, I never would have thought to trim the striper brush. Thanks for sharing this.

Hi ABOP, no problem. The best way to trim the hair is by using a nail clipper and clip a little off each side. Draw a line with your brush each time you clip until you get the thin line(s) that you desire.
