Artistic Brush Strokes Nail Art

Effect Beauty has sent me a ton a goodies to play with and share with you all and today we have a very simple nail art using one of their nail art brushes and their silver Mylar flakes
Today I wanted to show you all a nail art that can be done using a flat brush. I usually save these for clean up brushes but I wanted to try out something different this time. 

I used 3 different coloured acrylic paints. 
The paints I used are just a cheap set from The Works. If you don't use acrylic paints then please look into them and give them a try. I used to struggle with nail art until I started using paints. They cover better and I personally think more is achievable with them. 


The brushes seemed alot nicer quality than the cheap ones on eBay. They are softer and I can wait to try more of them out! 
They come in a set of 5. 
The Mylar Flakes come in a bag of 5g but going by the tiny amount I use for this, that's going to last a LOOONNNGG time! 

I used the brush to "scrub" the colour onto the nail. 
Do not overload the acrylic paint on the brush. It needs to have like minimal paint on the bristles. 
I then placed Mylar onto one corner using topcoat to stick it. It reminds me of a mermaid! 

I used an unnamed light greeny blue Color Club polish for the base. The glitter polish is Laugh Myself Lily by KBShimmer, matted. 

I really like this nail art. It really does remind me of the sea or mermaids, Its so easily achieved too.
