Product Feature: Revlon Nail Art Expressionist.

Hohoho! I’m back!

It has been 8 months since I last blogged about something, and for my “comeback”, I’ll be featuring a new product.

Been wanting your own fine tipped nail art brush, but can’t find one? I have a solution for you!

Say hello to Revlon’s Nail Art Expressionist!

It’s a nail polish that comes with a ‘skinny nail art brush’. Hence, the 2 in 1 product!

Christmas Nail Art

Side 1 consists of an ordinary nail polish brush which could be used as a base for your nail art.

Side 2  is the ‘skinny nail art brush’ side.

 See the difference? 🙂

If you’re curious about the price, I bought this at Duty Free Philippines for $6.50. So that’s Php284-285.

Aaaand because it’s already December, might as well make a Christmas Nail Art!

TADA!

Dotting Tool Substitute

Yes, you read it right! There are substitutes available in your own home! You don’t need to buy a dotting tool right away, especially when you’re still a beginner (like me!).

In this post, I will be comparing and contrasting three dotting tool substitutes that you can use  on you nail art.

 

 

If you’re game, let’s start!

1. Toothpick

If you’ve been reading my nail art tutorials, you’ll notice that I use toothpicks a lot. From drawing lines to making dots, that toothpick can do the work! So don’t underestimate that tool. 😉 It is most convenient if you cut the pointy tip. This will make your dot flatter, just like what I did on my Let it Snow Nail Art . Thus, faster for the dots to dry.

2. Hair Pin/Bobby Pin

For most girls, this is more accessible and it’s hassle free since you don’t need to cut the tip since it’s round enough.

3. Sewing pin

For our safety and convenience, stick it into an eraser.

Now let’s try using them!

1. Toothpick

Toothpick as Nail Art Tool

This tool is handy and can give you a satisfactory outcome, especially if you cut the pointy part (right side sample). If the toothpick isn’t cut, it will give you smaller dots (left side sample).

2. Hair/Bobby Pin

More similar outcome with the dotting tool and it’s handy too!

3. Sewing Pin

In this tool, you need to dip it on your nail polish every now and then. Not very convenient for me.

4. Dotting Tool

 What do you guys think? Similar outcome right? Try it for yourselves! 🙂

(Pardon me, it’s my first time to use a dotting tool)
