Nail Polish Tips

Why Has My Gel Top Coat Brush Gone Hard?

Written by Tara

To replace brush only: Open polish bottle and wipe excess polish from the brush. With a paper towel, firmly grasp the brush in one hand and cap in the other, then pull until brush releases from the cap. Insert new brush in the polish bottle, place cap on brush and bottle, twisting cap completely closed.

If it is exposed to UV light, the bristles will harden and be super hard to unstick. Make sure you keep your gel brush away from any UV lights as you work on your nails.

Generally Will nail polish ruin paint brushes? Never use a nail art brush to apply nail polish or enamel, and don’t clean nail art brushes with acetone, which can destroy the bristles. Use brushes made especially for nail enamel to polish the nails; use nail art brushes to paint with water base acrylic paint or water colors.
