Did you know that a well-chosen manicure brush will help you create professional nail designs even without special skills? If not, then today's article is especially for you. :) Our topic is types of nail brushes.
Today, nail art is flourishing with might and main. New techniques and designs appear, and there is little to surprise us with. :) Despite the fact that a quality manicure mainly depends on the professional qualities of your master, knowing certain secrets in working with manicure tools will help you get closer to the world of professionals.
Neil art brushes play an important role in creating beauty for our nails. Therefore, today I will tell you in more detail about each of it, and for what purposes to use it.
The criteria for choosing a brush depend on:
- The material from which it is made (natural or artificial)
- The thickness of the villi (this indicator is in the form of numbers: the thinnest villi are indicated by 00, and the most “well-fed” by the number 8 :) )
Types of brushes for manicure
This type of brush has a short length, round base and is used to highlight images.
The liner helps create crisp thin straight lines and strokes. You can also use this brush to create animal patterns such as zebra or tiger prints.
This brush is also known as a shader brush. This is a brush with a short, square/blunt end.
The shader brush is great for coloring backgrounds and painting large details. This brush is quite versatile, and you can, for example, paint with two colors at once, if you apply it to opposite edges of the shader.
This brush is also often used to create acrylic nails.
It is a flat brush, with medium length swollen bristles that look like an unfolded fan.
The fan brush also has many functions in its arsenal. With it, you can achieve the effect of an airbrush, draw many lines at once, mix colors on a brush to create a gradient, and so on. The fan brush is especially great for shading, swirling, and glitter work.
In extreme cases, it can be used to clean the work surface from excess dust or glitter. :)
It is quite obvious from the name that the dots brush is used to add dots and other related patterns on the nails.
Thanks to the small tip that helps in creating a dotted effect on the nails, we can admire many interesting nail designs.
And polka dot manicure, perhaps, will never go out of fashion. :)
This type of brush has short, flat bristles cut at a forty-five degree angle.
This beveled tip allows complex, detailed designs to be created. Ideal for creating oblique and angled shapes.
The simplest and most used brush.
In addition to the fact that the base and the coating itself are usually applied with this brush, the petal brush is also widely used for sculpting acrylic 3D figures on nails.
With the development of progress, each bristle brush now has its own silicone counterpart.
Incredibly soft to the touch and designed with flexible tips, these brushes are made from durable patented silicone and can be used with gels, gel polish, acrylics and regular nail polish.
Also, silicone brushes can be used to clean the cuticles.
A clear advantage is that the tips of the silicone brush do not absorb paint, which means it's more convenient to maintain.
I hope that the information was useful to you, and after reading today's article, you will discover the inner artist in yourself, and you will no longer consider nail art to be something unattainable. :)
