What kind of brush is best for acrylic nails?

Acrylic nail brushes perform best when the bristles are compact and smooth, with a precise end that helps to spread and sculpt the product seamlessly. The best brushes are thick but not bushy. Our collection includes First Touch and Kolinsky nail brushes of all sizes. Proper cleaning after each use is critical to ensure your acrylic nail brushes stay in top condition.

What brushes do nail techs use?

Every nail technician has their preferences when it comes to the shape and size of their acrylic nail brushes, but the quality of the bristles is key. This is why many technicians and nail professionals prefer to use a kolinsky nail brush made from 100% kolinsky hair. The natural bristles hold the acrylic liquid much better than a synthetic one, allowing you to pick up the perfect bead and work with it seamlessly.

What size brush should a beginner use for acrylic nails?

Small acrylic nail brushes are generally better for beginners, ranging between sizes 8-10. We recommend starting with something like NSI Kolinsky Acrylic Brush #8.. The size eight brush is small enough to offer you more control when sculpting your nails, while the flat edge will allow you to create thin and even lines.

Do you have to wet your brush with acrylic?

Yes. A professional acrylic nail brush must first be dipped into an acrylic nail liquid (also known as monomer) to wet the brush. This allows the brush to pick up a bead from your choice of acrylic powder, which bonds together so you can begin sculpting your shape. NSI Nails' acrylic liquids and powders are HEMA-free, MMA-free, 11-Toxin-free, vegan and cruelty-free.

What's the difference between round and oval crimped acrylic brushes?

Oval crimped acrylic brushes generally differ from round ones by having a more user friendly shape.. The 'belly' of the brush is slightly squashed or crimped at the base, further enhancing the oval shape matching your nail plate shapes. Because of its shape, an oval acrylic brush won't absorb as much acrylic liquid, making for easier work, better beads and more control for intricate designs. It's often favoured for work with and used by 90% of nail techs being expert and beginner friendly.

On the other hand, a round brush typically has a bigger 'belly' which absorbs more acrylic liquid. This allows nail techs to pick up bigger beads for faster work and is typically used by more experienced long time salon nail professionals.
