Nail art is exploding in popularity. And we can see why. It’s like the nail plate has become a canvas for creativity, individuality and best of all, fun. There are just so many interesting and innovative ways to let your nails steal the show.

While a nail technician has the trained eye and steady hand to create the nail art look you’re after, it’s also a lot of fun giving it a go at home. True, it takes practice but having the right nail art tools helps. A lot. Here’s few we couldn’t be without.

Thin tip brushes

Nail art is all about precision which is why a set of super thin tip brushes is essential to get the lines and curves you want. If you can’t find nail art brushes then artists’ brushes will do just as well. Remember to clean the brush with acetone after use.

Mistakes are all part of the learning process. And when you’re starting to do your own nail art, there are going to be mistakes. That’s when it’s time to whip out the correction pen. Choose one with a fine tip to help correct detail work.

Good quality top coat

We highly recommend applying a really good quality top coat once you’ve completed your nail art design. Think of it as a protective seal over your art work while nourishing your nail at the same time.

Manicure tools

Your nail art will look magnificent on nails that are manicured and looked after. To help keep your nails looking great it’s worth having good manicure tools at the ready.

Nail oil

If you use a good quality nail oil on a regular basis, your nails, and the skin around them will be hydrated and nourished. The perfect backdrop to your nail art canvas.
