Born Pretty 3 Piece Nail Art Brush Set Review


Holy cow, happy March everyone! Let me just say it does not feel like March 3rd one little bit, I still feel like it should be the middle of February.

Back to here and now, I have a review on Born Pretty's  3 Piece Nail Art Brush Set:

To create the above look I used:
Born Pretty's  3 Piece Nail Art Brush Set (provided for review)
OPI The Drummer is Hot (red base)
OPI Rolling Bones (dark grey shimmer)
Cult Nails Nevermore
Essie No Place like Chrome

Using the brush set I was able to achieve different line intensities, from the thicker bold lines on my tips, to the wispy lines on my floral designs. I used the medium sized brush for all the lines. On my pinkie I attempted the waterfall design by The Nailasaurus.

For wispy lines you brush in a quick up-wards motion, perfection is not important when doing the wispy style.

To create thick full lines I found it better to lay the brush as flat as you can, then kind of gently run it off your nail. If your try and "paint" you can leave a blob of polish where you started & bald strip in the middle of your line.

Heres a second design using the brush set:

This was actually my first attempt using the brush set, and how I learnt its better to be gentle and run your brush off slowly for thick solid lines.
I used:
OPI Yellopalooza
Finger Paints Paper Mache
Cult Nails Nevermore

Please ignore where I got a little spaz-tastic on my index! The hearts were also free handed with the brushes in this set.
