Nail artists know that you can never have enough nail art brushes and with this excuse that's so true, I chose this set of beautiful nail art brushes from Born Pretty Store.
The flower handles look really nice and they stand out against my other plain brushes. The set is comprised of two striping brushes in different sizes (medium and long), detailing brush and a flat square tipped brush. The latter has a silver ferrule while the other three brushes have a gold one.
The brushes come in a plastic sleeve pocket and each of them has its own protective plastic cap which I think is nice as I like to put the caps back on my brushes after I use and clean them. The bottom part of the liner brushes can be used to create big dots too if you so desire.
All four brushes are very easy to work with. Just a small tip before using them for the first time though, dip the brushes in water and wipe them on a tissue paper to get that stickiness out of the bristles and make sure all the hairs stick together for an optimal result.
The long and medium striping brushes are best for drawing straight lines; just dip them in acrylic paint or nail polish and stripe away!
The detailing brush is best used for intricate nail art work such as arabesque motifs like the nail art I did here. You can also use it to fill in colour in your nail art.
The square tipped brush is your best bet for cuticle clean up or even for small one stroke designs. You can alternatively use it to fill in bigger areas on your nails with polish.
The only downside I found with these brushes is that the bristles, being white, tend to retain some colour after cleaning. Nonetheless, this is still a nice set of brushes to have in your collection and it is currently on sale for $3.44 instead of $4.92 on www.bornprettystore.com.
