♡ Every nail artist will constantly talk about certain tools they own, that are involved in pretty much every single design they do. I’m going to share my nail art necessities with you because well, they’re pretty damn important.
♡ First of all, my favourite of all of them. I was on Amazon a couple of weeks ago and thought you know what I need? An electric nail file. Don’t get me wrong normal ones are great, but it’s nice to not have to do all of the work sometimes and only have to hold it whilst it files. It makes the job a whole lot quicker too, with all the different heads for it, it’s like what they have in nail shops but a bit less dangerous. Seriously recommend these! Only 7-11 pounds for a battery operated one.
♡ Acrylic clippers.. everywhere I searched for these online they were minimum £3, and they were coming from China. Honestly I know £3 isn’t that expensive but I was SO convinced I’d be able to find these cheaper. Which I did. They were 99p in Home Bargains (a really cheap shop with home, beauty, food etc in the UK). I was so happy that I didn’t have to wait for it to be shipped either, it was in the shop there & then which is also a bonus. These make life a lot easier in comparison to having a nail file, having to file it down to the shortest length. Why do that, when I can just grab these bad boys and cut them in an instant.
♡ Moving swiftly on, to nail art pens, I emphasise the usefulness of these in every single post. You’ll never guess what guys, as much as I promoted the Barry M pens, I think I’ve found a new favourite here. The NYC showtime ones, have the really super fine brush which makes is so much easier to do free hand lines and squiggles. The squeezy kind of nail pens (the Pretty & Witty one shown in pic) are amazing for doing dots, dotting tools are a lot more fiddly.
♡ Can I give a shoutout to Poundland for making such great nail art brushes, they come in a pack of about 7 and are a pound (obviously) which is the same if you compare to ones on eBay or Amazon which come from China, except you don’t have to deal with the wait. A lot more satisfying.
That’s my top favourites of all of my nail art necessities, so until next time…
