French smile brush - 16-04-12, 09:08 PM

Hey guys,

I'm looking to get a French brush & I've seen there are a few that vary in width size (3mm - 7mm)

Does anyone know which size would be best?

Thanks

I use this one for my French Shellac, if its any help. Its a great wee brush and I find it good for just swiping the smile line to keep it neat. Although, I must add this website annoys me! Has so much stuff on it but the design is poor and minimum order is 25 I had 15 worth of stuff in my basket last week and ended up ordering from elsewhere! xx

Haha don't be scared hun! When I started doing Shellac I found mines looked quite messy but this wee brush tidies them up completely. You just need to wipe with Dspere inbetween nails. Personally I wouldn't want to work with a long nibbed brush as I think you get better control with a smaller brush! xx

(attached is a photo of a French Shellac I did with Romantique a long time ago, I am much neater now! Still using the same trusty brush!) x

I use this brush

Leighton Denny - Signature Site

Not too big, not too small and works a treat although i need to get a new one as mine is a bit mangled now as i use it for doing rockstar nails aswell.
