It's been awhile, but now I'm on Thanksgiving break so I have time to blog!
For today's post, the Born Pretty Store was kind enough to send me a set of nail art brushes to review.
This set contains three striping/detail brushes and one larger flat-topped brush.
China Glaze First Mate // Essie Blanc // Nails Inc Chelsea Bridge Road
For the half moon section, I outlined it and filled it in with the shortest detail brush. Then I added the curved scallop-y lines with the midsized detail brush, and added the straight lines with the longest brush. I used the wide brush for cleanup.
I was really happy with these brushes! I have been using a set from MASH, but I prefer these. The striping brushes are just the right length, not too long to control but also not so short that the lines come out super thick. Also, I didn't have to trim off any stray hairs!
What I liked most about these was that these brushes have plastic handles so they're OK if you get a little acetone on them, unlike some brushes that have paint handles so if they come into contact with acetone the paint comes off and gets everywhere.
My one complaint was that the wider brush was a little too thin to be used for cleanup for me. I get nail polish everywhere when I paint my nails, so I need a pretty heavy-duty cleanup brush. If you're used to using the ELF concealer brushes or regular paint brushes for cleanup, you might find this one a little too thin.
But I could see this brush being used for cleanup for neat people or for filling in large spaces!
Overall, I would recommend these brushes -- all four are only 4.92 USD, and they work great!
And lastly, the Born Pretty Store was kind enough to give me a 10% off coupon code for all of you guys!
Thanks for reading, and happy Thanksgiving to all of you guys who celebrate it!
