How to break-in a Kolinsky Acrylic Brush. Nail Video Tutorial
Nail Technicians can spend a small fortune on acrylic application brushes. It's important to make sure that they understand how to correctly prepare, or "break-in" their new acrylic brush and to protect their new investment. A nail technician is only as good as the tools they use!
The next stage I'm going to show you is how to prepare your brush. Take the plastic cover off your brush and once you've done that throw it away, never try putting it back on. The next thing you have to do is remove the resin from the brush and you'll see it come out as tiny dust particles. That can take a good five minutes to do so make sure you do that before your client arrives. When the brush comes from the factories it's sprayed with a very fine mist of resin to keep it in it's shape, you need to remove all the resin before you start working with it. The next stage is to remove all the air bubbles out the brush by placing the brush into the liquid and giving it a good press down. If you see any air bubbles rise to the surface, that's good,just repeat that procedure until you see that all of the air bubbles are out of your brush and that brush is now ready to use.
