I was wondering if any of you air brush queens could recommend a good airbrush set up for a beginner. I know it is really important to get a good airbrush since it will make life a lot easier. Can anyone recommend a good brand or a website? TIA and I promise to post pictures when I get the hang of airbrushing! :D

Hi Rhonda,

I am infact to a bit of a novice at airbrushing....I done a course a few months back, and they reccommended the Badger airbrush and commpressor, which I find to be quite good.

Hi Rhonda, there are lots of different airbrushes and compressors available.

I personally like the Iwatas with either the Medea paints or Createx paints.

You may have access to other brands in the US we do not have here and vice versa.

There is a Yahoo Group for airbrushing http://groups.yahoo.com/group/airbrushing/

Good luck and let us know what you choose at the end of the day.

I do my airbrush shopping at BearAir, 1-800-bearair. I have a Vega 1000 for airbrushing nails and a Vega 2000 for tanning, I am happy with both airbrush's. The people at BearAir are very helpful.

I have recently purchased the Essential Nails Home Learn Airbrushing Course.

Ive been a bit worried about the quality as it was such a brilliant price - you get a big reduction if you already have a nail trainer-but it arrived yesterday and the whole thing is excellent.

The brush and compressor are IWATA and the paints are MEdea.

Ive had a go and it is great fun. Plus you get a good video to learn from (check out Gina Wallaces Hair - it never moves! LOL)

I think they are launching this product in the States from the beginning of august.

Good luck!

Take a look at K-Sa-Ra's website www.netnails.net. They sell Iwata compressors and airbrushes as well as Medea paints.
