For my first set of manicure brushes and tools, this is great!! The cleanup brush did come apart, the metal sleeve with the bristles came off, but I glued it back on, no problem! I'm very happy with the set, although I have not used all of the items in the set as of yet. I am not sure I will use the pinstriping brush (looong brush tip), but that might be because I haven't found a use for it yet. The clear plastic brush is pretty much the same as the cleanup brush, interchangeable. The dotting tool is cool, though I've only used it for nail decals or what I call "nail stickers", the peel up nail design you glue to your nail with topcoat and trim to fit. Added pic, don't mind my weird, curved fingers.
Nice, but hard to clean.
I went into ULTA to buy a good striping brush. Unfortunately this was the only thing they had. I didn't want to go home empty handed so I bought the set. I think the brushes are okay. The dotting tool is awesome but the striping brush takes a while to get used to because it feathers out. The other brushes serve their purpose as well. The hardest thing to do is clean them! I've tried everything! I have let them soak overnight in acetone, used makeup brush cleaners, but the stains just won't come out! I probably won't repurchase when they become worn out.
I would buy this product again
It's for my daughter and she love it
Paint was terrible
The brushes serve their purpose ok but if you get the smallest drop of acetone on these the black paint bleeds everywhere. One of the brushes has an acrylic base rather than the wood and paint and it seemed to hold up ok.
Good tools to learn with. 👍🏼
Exactly what I was looking for!
I bought this to do nail art for Christmas, and it's exactly what I needed! I bought it specifically for the detail brush and dotting tool. The detail bush's handle is thicker than the other brushes, I really appreciated this as this was my first nail art attempt. The dotting tool has a medium and a small dot on both sides of the tool which I wasn't expecting. I'm very happy with these! I'm very excited to use the remaining brushes in future nail art attempts :)
Works pretty good for nail art and other art
I bought this set to originally use to try and start doing nails. After that didn't pan out I started using some of the items in the kit for use with makeup and art pieces. The dotting tool has been great for palette knife art and to spread paint without distorting or blurring artwork. I never could really use the striping brush well though.
