We all know I love nail polish. You can easily browse through my blog and see that. What do I need help with though? Nail art. I have some basics down, sometimes I get lucky and even surprise myself with a design (just don’t ask me to recreate it.. it will be iffy at times) I’ve spoken to some fabulous nail art bloggers and they all say the same thing; keep at it and PRACTICE!
I have a couple things to share with you that will make your nail art start up a bit easier for you. I know when I started out, it took a bit to find everything I needed, so it’s nice to have it all in one easy location.
The three sets you can pick up are the LOOK Manicure Mat, Practice Wheel and Nail Art Kit.
LOOK Manicure Mat is fairly self explanatory, but you don’t truly realize how much you needed one until you experience it yourself. This is a mat you can lay out to put your supplies on to do a manicure. Any spills or polish drips will land on the mat instead of your table surface. It’s made of silicone, so it has a nice no slip grip to whats under it and on top of it, plus it’s easy to clean.
When you are done using it, just fold it up and put it away until your next manicure!
The Nail Art Kit is your basic starter set. I remember hunting these down individually when I first got into nail art, so I really could have used something like this.
The kit comes with:
- 1-Striping Brush: This is a long, thin brush used for painting thin lines or anytime you want to have a long, smooth line.
- 1-Detail Brush: This brush is “THE Brush” in nail art. It offers the most control and precision when doing intricate designs.
- 1-Clean Up Brush: This brush when dipped in polish remover makes clean up around your nails and cuticles quick and easy and because this particular brush doesn’t soak up a lot of liquid….it makes for the perfect “clean up” brush without risking any damage to your nail art design.
- 1-Practice Nail Wheel: Practice makes perfect. AND…if you’re new to nail art OR…..you want to try and perfect a new design, the practice wheel serves this purpose.
- 1-Top Coat Art Sealer
- Dotting Tools (double ended): 2 Tools in one. One end is larger than the other, allowing you to make two different sized “dots”. This tool is also used for nail art “swirling”- so it serves several purposes.
Here is a closer look at the brushes in the kit.

PRACTICE WHEELS! These are perfect for practicing nail art. If you have an idea in your head you can test it out on a nail wheel first and see what you think (we all know things don’t always translate well from your vision) so this way you can try color combos or techniques and see how you feel about it, or if you need to tweak anything!
You can also use these to catalog your current nail polish collection.
Each practice wheel set comes with 10 wheels, so you can dedicate some to cataloging your collection and some for nail art – or just buy multiples of them to do it all!
I created this with my nail wheel and dotting tools. From here I can see if there are any colors I want to switch out, and flourishes I would want to add, or if I love it as is!
These would be perfect for you, or as a gift for a friend! If you have little ones in your life that love doing their nails, how perfect would this be? Especially the Manicure Mat!
