Hiya,

After doing a clients nails (L&P) last night i left my brushes on the side while i was sorting all my nail stuff out and having a bit of a tidy up.

When i turned round to put my brushes away i find that my four legged friend called Missy has managed to chew both my brushes to bits (The Edge no6 and No8).

So now i need a new brush and thought i might try a different make while i was at it.

I'm still getting to grips with the powder/liquid ratio thing so something that might aid me in this would be ideal (ie smaller one).

I'm in the process of booking a one-one session with a Creative rep in Nottingham then possibly do a L&P conversion later on in the year (when i get the info through), so with this in mind, I've went on the Designer Nails website but there are loads on there, and i haven't a clue which would be best for me.

Does anyone have any ideas???

Em.xx

Yeah i wouldn't mind but she's nearly a year old (end of month), just going through a chewing stage again - skirting boards and table as well!!!:eek:

Thanks that does help a lot, just so i have a bit of a clue of what i need to look for - so many to choose from and i'm bound to get the wrong one.:confused:

The pro styler is a great brush and small is not better for you. Prostyler is perfect and makes the job so much easier.

If youare doing your conversion with Tricia say HI from me.

Thanks Geeg


i think it will be with Tricia (or so Sue told me who i spoke to at Designer Nails), can't wait - could really do with a bit of advice and hopefully encouragement that i'm doing things right.

On the Prostyler front, is that the one with the interchangeable head - or have i got the wrong end of the stick???

You can buy the Prostyler with the acrylic handle or in the Master series with the interchangeable heads. The Master Series brush is expensive to begin with , but refills are much cheaper than buying a whole new brush.

I have to agree with Geeg here when it comes to the size of your brush.

I used to always use a small brush feeling like i could handle it better. I then had the chance to try some one else's brush which felt huge compared to mine. My original was a size 5, my new one is the EZ Flow master oval 508 which i think is equivelent to a size 8.

I have found it so much easier to use, i get a smoother application and barely need to file afterwards, so many bonuses to a big brush.

i felt the same as you, felt i had more control over a small brush, i now use the funky looking ons no 8. its really good for me as where the end of the brush is taken off to be the lid, it means it is harder to contaminate, and nice and compact whilst im going between clients! and it looks cool!
