Nail art is running madness in the beauty world right now!

Yup nail art is now an equivalent substitute to body art. Those of you who are not a big fan of needles or the pain but still love to flaunt some art on the body, this is the ideal solution. Nail art art can be an amateur attempt. You can give it a try just to see how good you are at it or maybe just because your bored. Or you can choose to be serious and go pro. And this of course means that right tools are needed. And that is where nail art brushes come into the play.

    Hello, Puja, I would like to practice nail art using regular nail polish. Most of the kits I see are for gel and acrylic. Is it better for me to get a set that is for nail polish or does it matter.
