Im looking for some new brushes ,
Im wondering what you all use for your 3d acrylic work ?
Im not looking to spend a fortune ...that will come later when I have made my millions :lol:

Im also looking at the nail art brushes (cant for the life of me remember the name)
they have white handles and coloured ends where the bristles come out (sandi i think you use them ?)
are these any good ?

I haven't done any hand painted nail art for ages, so would like to stock up on brushes and paints ...what do you use the most , brush and colour wise ?

go on just recommend me your fave everyone ,
so i can sit with a brew after my client and have a good nosey

thankyou mwah xxxx

for my 3-d, i just use my regular sculpting brush. the way i figure it, i know how it feels in my hand and it's easy to work with.

I'm pretty sure that the nail art brushes that Sandy uses are the V rush pen by art nails.

I would love to get my hands on some of those.

are these any good ? they are called the vrush brush hun but you can get the same sort of thing on ebay really cheaply i have had mine over 2 years now and i think that they only cost £0.01 with .99p postage bargain!!

i buy acrylic paint from tescos, got 12 little pots for just under £3 and they last, i also brought a set of 4 other brushes for nail art from ebay and i use hem the most. My clients love handpainted more than the airbrush as it is individual and unique every time. I aslo have 5 different sized dotting tools that i use all the time too:)

they are good but I think that they're overpriced for what they are.

I use the V-brush pens mainly, but I do have some very fine detailers that I got from Sally's they're from the Spangles range and I've given one of them a bit of a haircut to make it a very ultra fine tip :green:
I use regular acrylic water based paints, you can get them from craftshops.
