Nail brushes is a small brush that you use to clean your nails while washing your hands. Beauty Heaven says that nothing is more important than a good nail brush to remove impurities. This works better than any object that scrapes the dirt, as these can unintentionally push the dirt further or cause damage under the nail bed. The Body Shop nail brush is my favorite.
Types Of Brushes
1: Round Brush | Nail Brushes
It is the most versatile and common nail brush. It is used to create complex patterns. It also helps in creating different stroke patterns. These brushes help in creating 3D nail art using acrylic powder and monom.
2: Striping Brush
This nail brush helps in creating stripes (long lines), streaking stroke patterns and you can also use it to create animal designs like zebra or tiger designs. Straight lines are easy to achieve with these brushes. Your kit will most likely contain 3 of these brushes.
3: Flat Brush
This brush is also known as shader brush. It also helps in creating single stroke patterns, blending and shading. They are also useful when applying gel nails. Your kit may contain 2-3 sizes of this brush.
4: Angled Brush
This brush basically helps with one swipe of nail art flowers on the nail. One stroke design involves placing two different colors on the brush and using them to enhance the gradient effect with the flowers.
5: Fan Brush
The fan brush has many functions. It helps with shading, creating swirls and also helps with sprinkling glitter. You can create beautiful effects with this brush. It is also used to remove excess flake powder or glitter.
6: Detailing Brush
As the name suggests, this brush is used to add details to your nail design and has a very good precision effect. You can create many masterpieces with this brush. This is an essential brush in your stash of nail art tools.
7: Dotter Brush
The dotting tool has a very small head tip which helps in creating many small dotting effects on the nails. For larger dots, you can use the other larger dotting tools in the kit.
8: Square Brush
I mainly use my square brush when marbling. I saw this technique somewhere where you place a few different colored drops of gel polish next to each other and then pick them up with a brush. You can then place them on the nail to achieve this effect. To make the colors blend even more, you can first run over the nail in clear gel and let the colors run a bit before curing the nail in the lamp.
9: Oval Brush
I like to use my oval brush to achieve rough strokes. I also used this brush to create feather designs on my nails. Using a brush to create stroke-like patterns is so simple, but it looks cool. This brush is good for creating dry brush effects. Make sure to take care of your bristles after use as they can go a little crazy when dry brushing. I used this effect in the image below and used my brushes to draw some leopard pattern.
