When it comes to doing nail art I have found that there are some tools that I have found pretty useful. I have made a list of the products that I love to use when it comes to nail art.
1. 100% acetone nail polish remover & Regular Nail Polish remover Dip
“I prefer to get the 100% acetone nail polish remover dip.-> This will make it much easier to remove gems, glitter, gel polish etc, I usually get mine at my local Wal Mart for under $3” If not you can easily make your own dips but using a small jar and placing a sponge in the jar and filling it with the nail polish remover of your choosing.
2. Nail Polish Pen Remover (This is a MUST for me)
I use this pen every time I do my nails, it makes it easy to clean up excess nail polish and give you a clean look while avoiding the mess of q-tips.
3. A good base & Top Coat
To increase the longevity of your nail polish I recommend using a good base & top coat. My preferred brand is Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat and Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat.
3. Cheap brushes & Preferred gems and glitter’s etc
I never spend much on special brushes for nail art. I always choose low cost paint brushes which work just as good if not better in some cases. As well as whatever I like at the time with glitter , gems, and nail stickers.
