Can anyone recommend a decent pointed gel brush for sculpting, and from where?

I did find one thread where Sass or Angie (can't remember:smack:) mentioned a good one from LCN...which I have tried to order, but their minimum order value is £40, and I really don't want to spend that there just to get one brush.

I don't like too large a brush...normally a No 4 is just right.

Thanks!

Nsi do gel brushes that are pointed - will see if I can get a link for you.

If you want one and there is a minimum order issue then let me know and I will pick one up when I go up to them later this month.

Brushes - Nail Systems International(UK)

If you need details of prices please let me know and I will pm you. the one at the top of this linked page is the smaller of the two. there is a larger one aswell on page 2

just looked there myself and although they are pointed they look flat and not round.

i would love to find another supplier for round, pointed gel brushes. x

Hi,

I am new to this site but have just read what your looking for and I bought a kit from LCN, I think it's called an exclusive brush set. Think it might be £30, but basically, you get a box with 2 or 3 wooden brushes, then another metal looking brush with detachable heds, flat & pointed and a couple of others and they are all really good. Hope this helps.

IBD Deluxe Round gel brush. I love it for French application, you can really get into the corners with it.

Synthetic... :)

The oval petite is oval (and pointed). Are we talking the same brush?

I seem to remember from the deep dark recesses of my mind that gel brushes are best from synthetic, but then I'm sure my Bio brushes are sable.....could be totally wrong though!

Thanks all for some excellent brushes to check out.

i think it depends a lot on the size and shape of the brush you like.
personally i like a sable one, but thicker gels may respond better to synthetic bristles. a lot of it is personal preference, there is no reason not to use either.

The longer the brush, the less stiff (especially Kolinsky).

Angie... I suspect you are tlaking about the Petite Edge (the shorter handle). My pref is the oval.

HTHs!

again it depends on the shape and structure of the brush, especially the length of the bristles, but also there are different types of synthetic with different properties. confusing init ?:irked:
