How to Use Nail Art Brushes?

Mar 23,2024 | bqan beautys

Hey guys! I finally have time to create a FAQ post about nail art brushes! And I should just go all the way and explain everything you’ll need to know about brushes for some nail art.  Let’s get started guys!

So I’m going to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about nail art brushes but if I missed something that you this is important, please let me know so I can add the question!

Why do you use brushes for nail art?

I think the easiest tool for nail art is a brush! Sure, you can use toothpicks/mechanical pencils but brushes will give you the best results. They also feel much more natural to use than bobby pins or whatever else you might use.

Is there any difference between ‘nail art brushes’ and ‘regular brushes’?

There isn’t a specific difference between the 2 — obviously though nail art brushes need to be small because your canvas (aka your nails!) are much smaller than say a piece of paper or real canvas. Obviously what the bristles of the brush can vary too!

So can I use regular paint brushes for nail art?

Yes! You can use any brush you want but keep in mind, the thinner the brush, the better for nail art.

Where do you buy these nail art brushes?

Well, specifically for nail art brushes, you will most likely buy them online.

How long do your brushes last?

The life of your brush depends on how frequent you use it and also how good you’ve taken care of it. After I finally realized how to take care of my brushes, I’ve been using the same brush for like 6 months that I bought.

What types of brushes are there?

For nail art, I use striper brushes (the super long, skinny one) and detail brushes (short and thin ones) the most. There are also fan and angled brushes but I don’t use those very often.
