Fan Brush Nail Art

Hi everyone!

I have some fun nail art to share with you today. I have seen this technique done a few times on other blogs and I thought the effect was super cool with a minimal amount of effort. I looked up a quick tutorial, which was helpful in doing this for the first time. All you need are the polish colors you are going to use and a brush like this:

You basically layer the colors over a base color with the fan brush until you get the desired look you want. There is definitely some clean up involved around the edges once you are finished!

So this is the look that Dustin and I came up with!

Colors used: Sinful Colors Neon Melon as a base over white and Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Speedy Sunburst and Brisk Blue. These colors came together in the process to also create some purple and green on the nail!

I am obsessed with this look! I definitely want to play around with some more color combos and see what they look like.

Have you tried this technique before?

  1. I LOVE THIS!! It's so pretty Amber and looks like a gorgeous water color painting....or the ice cream I used to love when I was little called 'Superman Icecream' or crazy vanilla ;-) It looks just like that!!

  2. Neat! I love it! Such cool combination of colours toooooo! I'd say, one of the best way to go crazy with colours!! I sooooo need to get myself a fan brush soon! ♥

  3. I never would have guessed that was only two colours! Looks really amazing!

  4. This looks so awesome, even with two colors! It reminds me of that old school spin art where you only used two colors and it came up with like, four!

  5. Super fun manicure! I just ordered some brushes off ebay and I'm waiting for it to come so I definitely will try this design out :)

  6. That looks awesome! I've never used the fan brush in my nail kit, but I'm so going to have to try something like this.

  7. This is soooo happy!!! I totally have to try this!

  8. This fan brush mani definitely looks a lot different than the one I've done, lol. Love the way this looks!
