What glue should I use to glue crystals on my brush?

What glue should I use to glue crystals on my brush?

Answer

I have tried a couple of glues, and the one that holds up over time and through the acrylic liquid the best is an epoxy-type glue, a two-part glue that you mix together (one is a resin and the other is a hardener). I like one that’s called Great Planes Pro Epoxy 6-Minute Formula. You can purchase it at hobby and craft stores.

How Do I Learn Nail Art If No One Is Available to Teach Me?

I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
