I don’t tend to use nail art brushes, I use everything but brushes to do my nails, it’s because of a mix between hand tremors and not being able to grip/hold them properly but having seen some of the amazing and precise nail art that other people do, I decided to try out this Born Pretty Store nail art brush and see if there was any potential there.
The brush is very pretty, it’s a Barbie pink with silver accents and a transparent part with lots of little pink crystals.
Being able to hold brushes is the hardest part, normal nail art brushes are very much the same as paint brushes, with a long and thin handle, but this Born Pretty Store brush is shaped like a pen and is wider making it easier for me to hold onto.
The actual bristles of the brush are perfect. There were no stray bristles and the bristles come to a fine tip, even after a few uses the bristles kept their shape. The brush isn’t overly long and is not too thick making it easy to use in a nail art capacity.
I have done 2 different style mani’s, initially I wanted to do a Posion Ivy vine themed mani, so for both attempts I focused around that.
I started with a stamp decal to represent Posion Ivy using a Moyou stamping plate.
For my very first attempt I used a few different shades of green and went for the vines style over a nude base. It looks almost like a child’s artwork.
For the second attempt I went with flowers, dots and Ivy’s toxic pheromones. This attempt was better and as with most things, practice seems to be the key.
I’m going to keep trying to incorporate this into my nail art, it’s definitely going to benefit me when doing outlines and I would recommend this brush, especially as a starter brush.
