Fan Brush Mani

What do you do with unused makeup brushes? Well, use them for nail art, of course! One of these said brushes is a fan brush. This was a brush in a set that was not of the best quality, so instead of throwing it away, I thought I would create a mani with it instead.


Orly "Liquid Vinyl", Femme Fatale "Shadowsong" and "Amber Jewel".

With a black base colour, I used the fan brush to paint on the Femme Fatale nail polishes, with horizontal strokes. Waiting for one nail colour to dry before painting on the next.






I'm really happy with the result, the added bonus of having a use for a brush that was nearly thrown out!

  1. With a black base, you can do almost anything. Love the resourcefulness.

    1. Thank you darling Mandy. Now that I am happy with the effect the fan brush gave to my nail look, I want to try some colour on a lighter base colour xx
