Laqueristas, what do you think are the best nail art tools for beginners?(r/RedditLaqueristas)
This is what’s in my kit, aside from the polishes themselves; I [personally] get most of my things from Sally Beauty Supply, Amazon, and local drugstores/Target type places. Polishes come from anywhere I find something pretty.
KISS Nail Artist Paint (Available at most drugstores. Another brand is LA Colors)
Nipper tool (I prefer Tweezerman; they haven’t gone dull like the Sally Hansen ones I replaced did.)
Nail polish thinner
Little cups for water marbling (my bf brings home Dixie sized cups)
Practice nail wheels
Stamps! I prefer Konad (deeper engravings, the sides aren’t sharp, prettier images), but also have BundleMonster (cheaper, more expansive packages; have cut myself a a few times, some images aren’t very deep and don’t hold much polish/transfer well).
French Manicure tip guides (some girls use hole reinforcements (also good for half moon manis) or tape)
Vaseline (for water marbling)
Wedge makeup sponges (for gradient manicures)
Silk Wraps (available online or at a beauty supply store) What Are Silk Wraps?
Mixing palette (or paper plates, etc.)
Angled brush for cleanup (I also have pointed qtips, but the brush is much, much more precise.)
Tiny coffee straws (for splatter/drip manis, etc.)
Loose glitter, rhinestones, fimo sticks
Ummmmm….quick, someone else keep the list going!
