Prepping your brushes:
- Take the protective plastic sleeve off your new brush.
- Your brushes will come with a hard layer on the bristles to protect them. This has to be fully removed before using them for the first time. Carefully "break" gum seal on your brush by lightly teasing the hairs of your brush. If you hold it up against a light you will see a fine “dust” coming from the brush, which is the hard layer being removed. Continue doing this until there is no “dust” remaining.
- Once all residue has been removed you can start using your brush to create nail art.
Cleaning your brushes:
- Clean your brushes immediately after you are done using them, and before storing again.
- When cleaning your brushes, dampen a Lint Free Wipe with nail polish remover and then use it to gently wipe the bristles whilst turning your brush in your hand to shape the bristles. Alternatively, you can also wipe or roll the brush along the surface of the Lint Free Wipe. Repeat until the brush is clean.
- Allow the brush to dry, then cover it with the plastic cap and store.
- Store brushes with their protective caps on if they are provided with them.
- Store flat, covered and away from sunlight.
- Store away from dust and other contaminants.
- Do not use your polish in very sunny areas, or too near to your UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp.
- Only use your brushes with the same type of polish / paint. For instance, if you use these brushes with gel nail polish, you should not use them with acrylic gel after.
- Make sure that you get all of the gel out of your brush before storing, as if it’s exposed to UV light, any gel in the bristles will harden.
- Avoid skin contact with the bristles whenever possible, as oils from the body can deteriorate the bristles over time.
- Avoid pressing down on the brushes vertically, as this can cause them to splay.
