Here comes 7 different types of nail art brush that you will use the most for your nail art designing

1. 3D Brush

The 3D brush, more specifically the acrylic brush (no. 02), is the most versatile and common nail art brush. It is used for creating intricate designs. It also helps in creating different strokes and patterns. These brushes also help in making 3D nail art using acrylic powder and monomer.

This nail brush helps in creating stripes (long lines), striping stroke patterns, and plaid art (checks), and you can also use them to make animal patterns such as zebra or tiger prints. You get straight lines with these brushes with ease. Your set may contain 3 of these brushes.

A stripping brush is also ideal for creating geometric designs and drag marbling. The long bristles help to reduce shakiness and create smooth lines.

3. Flat/Gel Brush

This brush is also known as a shader brush. These brushes help in creating long fluid strokes on the nails. It also helps in creating one-stroke patterns, blending, and shading. They are also helpful in doing gel nails. Your set may contain 2-3 sizes of this brush.

4. Angled Brush

This brush basically helps in one-stroke nail art flowers on the nail. It is very easy to double-load the two colors while using it because of its angled bristles.

Aside from designing, an angled brush can also be used to remove excess polish from the cuticles and sidewalls of the nails.

5. Fan Brush

A fan brush has many functions. It helps in shading, creating swirls, and sprinkling glitter. You can create beautiful stroke effects with this brush. It is also used in brushing off excess flocking powder or glitter too.

7. Dotting tool

Your 15-piece nail art brush set should consist of one dotting tool too. It has a very small head tip which helps in creating many small dotted effects on the nails. For larger dots, you can use other bigger dotting tools that are available in the market.
