how to:nail art brushes part 2

If you missed my first post about how to use the nail art brush set, you can take a look HERE.

So, continuing with what i have left...

THE FLAT BRUSH


What i like about this brush is that it's very easy to apply polish/acrylic. Unlike brushes that is included in the bottle, flat brushes can make polish application a breeze. You have to try this in pigmented creme polishes, you can achieve a full coat with just a swipe or two with this. You can do flower petals too! Just lightly drag the tip on the surface.

As to flat brushes, you can also do one strokes with it. I'm not an expert when it comes to one stroke method yet. I have tried once though but not this brush. hehehe

One thing that i like about this is that it's great for removing/cleaning excess polish! Since it is flat, it can easily go to the crevices of your nails to remove any lingering polishes! Just dip the bristles on your polish remover then go around the sides of your nails to clean it up.

THE ANGLED BRUSH


You can do flower petals with this brush like the filbert brush but I prefer using it for one strokes though. I think that this is easier to work with for one strokes rather than flat brushes.


You can take a look at Tartofraises' video for a how-to for this design HERE.

This is also a great tutorial from her!

THE DOTTING TOOL
Now, this is one of my favorite!
This is one of the easiest but versatile nail art tool that you can use. Depending on the tip of it, you can make large to tiny dots. I have used dotting tools countless of times on my nail art tutorial & i have to say that it's so versatile, it's not just simply for making dots! You can do all these designs using this.
Here are a couple of nail designs that i made using a dotting tool. This is a very easy design to do, i promise!~
This is one of my favorite dot designs.
Another favorite of mine! I adore contrasting colors!
Making heart designs are a lot easier with dotting tools rather than brushes, believe me!
Now, the next time you see a dotting tool, don't just think of dots designs,ne? There ya go. Hope you find this post somewhat helpful!

I guess in this case nail brushes is more suitable in applying the overall base colour. But some artist they are very skillful even when they use the small brushes.

yes,i agree.
that's why i hate those polishes that got really tiny & thin bristles. it makes polish application really difficult & i would have to resort to using nail art brushes... but then taking polish off those brushes are a pain to do
>_<
