How to use it: Used for painting fine lines and outlining when creating nail art designs.
How to apply it: Load the brush with paint or colored gel and drag along the nail to create a straight line or outline.
How to clean it: Clean or disinfect according to the product used in the brush. Nail artists will designate one liner brush per art medium used, for example one brush for gel, one for acrylic paints etc.
