Posted on June 25 2020

If you've just recently taken up the art of acrylic nails, you may be overwhelmed by the amount of brush shapes and sizes that are available. "What size do I get?  What does each brush do? How do I create this desired effect I saw a picture of?"  

In this blog, we will focus on Nail Art Brushes. Once you have your acrylic foundation laid, you may want to add in some artwork or details to take you new set to the next level. Let's begin:

Detail Brush: This brush can do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to nail art. With its short bristles and fine tip, it can create the smallest of details and gives you full control. From lines to dots, this brush can do it all!


Liner Brush: The name says it all. If you're looking for something to help you create lines, this brush will do it. A little longer than a Detail brush, the Liner is still short enough in length to give you more control when working with it. It is stiff enough to use for minor detail work too!


Mini Striper: Needing to create an even longer line? The Mini Striper is here to help! With the thickness of a Liner brush, the Mini Striper is perfect for laying down lines/stripes that are a little wider.


Striper: This is the longest brush we offer. The striper is use for creating very long lines in a single stroke. With a small diameter, this brush can give you that crisp, delicate line with ease.


Fan Brush: The shape of this brush may be intimidating, but it actually can help crate lines too!  After laying down line work, take a fan brush and "smear" the colors together for that sweeping effect. Fan brushes can also we used to scoop glitter and sprinkle over the nail.


So there you have it!  Now let's get to creating your next masterpiece with the help of Alpha Brush's line of Nail Art Brushes.
