I need new brushes
I pretty much have only one useable nail art brush left. I've basically ruined them with acetone and alcohol. I had one hell of time with these one-stroke flowers and my dried up brushes.
I'm kicking myself for not taking a photo before the nail art because the colour itself was pretty amazing. I used 2 coats of Gelish Garden Teal Party and added 1 coat of Shellac Hotski to Tchotchke on top. I used regular acrylic paints for the flowers and she was really happy with them, but I wasn't.
When I do acrylic paint or konad stamping on gel polish I always finish the gel manicure completely before doing any art. After I do the art I seal it with a regular polish top coat. That way if my Clients decide they don't like the art several days later, they have the option to remove it with non-acetone remover and it's like they have a new manicure. It's great for people who don't want to wear the same thing for 2 weeks straight.
