I got a great nail art set in the nail mail soon and I am hurrying to share with you my thoughts on it. I got this 7 piece brush set from the Born Pretty Store as a gift item to review along with a 10% discount coupon code for my readers!
I was anticipating this set as I have never owned and used brushes and tools specially designed for nail art. I had always used items as in my DIY manicure products for free post and was curious to try real nail art brushes :)
Summer palm nails
So this is a design I made to test out some of the items in my kit. I painted my accent nail a hot pink shade using OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips. Then I dipped a large fan brush (always wanted to try this technique) into China Glaze What a Pansy and brushed it on the pink while it was still a bit damp and the second color blended into the first one. I then used a small brush to paint a palm across my ring finger. For the palm I painted a few rough lines to guide me and then added tiny strokes to mimic the palm leaves.
Born Pretty Store 7 piece nail art brush set review
My brushes came into a pink pack, equipped with an individual cap (except the fan brush). My kit features 7 brushes with white wooden handles and quality bristles. The fan and the small brushes I used for my Summer palms design were super easy to control and clean. Honestly, I was not expecting to like the result of my first palms experiment so much but it turned out so easy to do with the right set of tools.
Here are some photos of the brush set in package and the brushes with individual caps off so that you can get an idea of the brush shape, density and make.
