Useful Nail Art Accessories

Cleaning and maintenance of nail art brushes
Care is most important for long life of any accessory. Acetone is necessary to remove nail polish but it also damages bristles over time. Therefore, it is better not to leave brushes soaking in acetone for an extended period. For other paints and pigments, brush cleaners or brush conditioners keep bristles in good shape.
Once the brushes are clean, make sure they dry out well. It is best to prevent acetone from getting into the ferrule, or the metal part that holds the bristles, because acetone can dissolve the glue that binds the bristles together. A brush holder cup is useful for holding brushes suspended in a cleaning solution. Never leave brushes resting on the bristles because this permanently bends the brush.
