Nail Art Kit Essentials!

Hi guys! It’s Sandi and in today’s video I’m
going to be sharing some of my Nail Art Kit Essentials. Whether you’re new to nail art,
or it’s a big hobby of yours, it’s always important to keep your polishes and tools
organized. You can store all of your stuff in a train case like this one, in a drawer,
or in a decorated shoe box! I really love to use this train case though because it’s
really sturdy and great for carrying when you’re travelling to a friend’s house. So obviously, if you’re doing nail art, you’re
going to want to have a variety of different nail polishes. A top coat and base coat is
vital, and after that, it’s a good idea to have at least one of every main color, a metallic
gold and silver, some fun glitter polishes, and also some stripers for creating lines. Other than the polishes, some other necessities
are nail tools. Let me show you what I have in here. The first thing is a cuticle cutter,
but I just use this solely for removing hang nails for a clean and neat look. A nail file is always essential for maintaining
nail length and switching up your shape. Nail art brushes are a huge essential for
creating your art. Here is a striper brush for creating lines, I use this fan brush for
some nail art techniques and also for brushing away excess loose glitter, I use this brush
for cleaning up around my cuticles with liquid nail polish remover, and finally this little
brush for tiny detailing. I never cut my cuticles. Instead, I just moisturize
them with oil, and then I use a rubber cuticle pusher to push them back. Dotting tools! Probably the first nail art
tool I recommend to anyone for getting into nail art. They’re just so versatile and used
in so many different nail art designs. By the way, I’ll have links and tons of info
in the description box below on where you can find everything shown here in this video. This is a new find for me— pointy, slanted
tweezers. They’re awesome for picking up gems, studs, and other 3d decorations and placing
them on your nails. A nail clipper. Again, like the nail file,
great for maintaining nail length and creating your perfect nail shape. Toothpicks are awesome for nail art. You can
use them to create so many different designs in place of dotting tools and even nail art
brushes. They’re also great for picking up little nail decorations. If you want a perfect gradient or ombre nail,
makeup sponges are your key to success. My favorite ones are the porous ones that aren’t
super smooth. I find they create the best ombres. A buffing block is the way to smooth nails.
This little one from Sephora is my favorite because it works wonders and it’s the perfect
size for travelling. It’s always a great idea to practice nail
art designs before you try them out on your nails because as cliche as it sounds– practice
makes perfect! And I love to practice nail art on these plastic nail art wheels. If you’re using a lot of glitter on your nails
then you’re going to want a quick and effortless way to remove it that doesn’t dry out your
cuticles. No Rub by Nail Aid is my favorite way to do just that! It’s found exclusively
at Walmart. I did a whole video on this product so if you’d like to learn more, then just
click the little box in the upper right corner or follow the link in the description box.
To use No Rub, all you have to do is dip your nail into the gel, wait 4 minutes, wipe it
off with a paper towel, and then rinse! One of my favorite ways to decorate my nails
right now is with 3d decorations. There are so many design possibilities with these and
they come in thousands of different shapes. You can stick them to your nails using a top
coat, or if you want a much longer wear, you can use nail glue. I really like this one
from KISS because it has a great applicator for applying the glue to your nail. Keeping your nails and cuticles moisturized
is key to having them neat and healthy-looking. Here are some cuticle oils that are my favorites
and one of my all-time favorite hand creams by OPI. Next up is clear tape. Like the dotting tools,
this is another huge product for creating nail art. There are so many possibilities
from creating lines and shapes, to placing it around your nails to protect them from
polish during certain design techniques such as marbling and splattering. And last, but not least, I have a bunch of
different stamping plates. These are a great way to quickly make some fun nail art over
your nails. They come in thousands of different patterns and are easy to use. And that’s it for my Nail Art Kit Essentials!
I hope you found this video helpful and dont forget to check the description box for even
