Nail Art

Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.

 

The Right Brush

When it comes to nail art, it isn’t a one-brush-will-do kind of situation. With the proper brush, a tech can create everything from thin detailed lines, to color-blended shadows, and even elaborate flowers.

Detailer Brush

How It’s Used: The detailer brush can be used for intricate work and is especially suited to drawing delicate flowers. Flower petals can easily be painted by placing the brush flat and lifting it straight up.

Striper Brush

How It’s Used: Efficient for elongated lines, the striper brush creates long vertical or horizontal lines. Whether a thin or thick line is desired, the width is determined by the amount of paint on the bristles.

Stripette Brush

How It’s Used: A shorter version of the striper brush, the stripette creates the same vertical and horizontal lines but in shorter strokes. The stripette is great for drawing wisps and netting.

Grass Comb Brush

How It’s Used: For detailed dry brush techniques, this brush has separated bristles for easy application. It creates an airbrushed effect with a swipe of the brush.

Angular Brush
