Tools for Every Design

With complicated designs come innovative tools and accessories. To make sure your professional nail art kit can tackle every design that comes your way, try adding some of these tools: 

  • Cuticle pusher – gently pushing the cuticle back means a better nail surface for your designs.
  • Cuticle remover - as part of your regular nail care regime, removing cuticle allows for healthy growth.
  • Nail art mat – we recommend "The Tracey" or "The Lesley"
  • Polish remover in pump dispenser (with acetone content) – Dispensers take the mess out of polish clean up! Worth every penny!
  • Cotton Pads  – Essential when removing nail polish and for clean up!! Spill something? Let the cotton pad get that for you.
  • Cuticle cream/oil
  • Clean up brush – The Bling Brush – This tool is also great for nail stamping. It makes clean up a breeze, and it’s super stylish with its diamond-filled handle. Some pros even use it as a gel brush.
