Basic nail art tools

Hy guys how are you today? 

I've been thinking about writing this post for a while now. I finally got time to do it and I'm quite happy because I think it would be usefull for everyone who's entering the nail art world.
I would very much appreciate if I found something like this when I first started, it would save me a lot of time. 
I'm gonna show you things I believe are must haves to do some basic nail art... so let's get started ..

 This is one relly useful set of tools that I belive everyone should have, weather you paint your nails or not.
The one that I have is from Born Pretty Store it's 12 pcs set that have all kinds of nail clippers, scissors and tools to tend both nails and cuticles.

This particular one came in a gorgeous and really elegant packaging. And the quality is really good. All peaces are made from stainless steal and the packaging is made from hard and long lasting material.

Front side of the packaging - gorgeous and very elegant design

back side - I took this pics in my hand so you can see approximately how big it is

Look at this super cute smiley face =) <3 it

 They have a lot of different designs and shapes on their site so if you need something like this definitely go check it out since the prices are really affordable  

overall one very useful and high quality kit =)

2. Nail files - who don't need a good nail file =)
 The ones that I have and would recommend ( for natural nails) are the medium file, I use it for shortening my nails and the fine file for shaping and removing smaller cracks and to give my nails a final shape.. I rarely use scissors and clippers to shorten my hand nails, I mostly use nail files. But I do use them for my toenails tho .

3. Dotting tools 
These are the basic tools for everyone that's entering the nail art world.  So many designs and nail arts cam be done just using these. They are really affordable , I bought mine, when I first started, on ebay i think they were like 1$ (set of 5)
Ps there are a lot of tutorials how to make you own dotting to so you can check that out if your into those kind of things. But I personally think they're way to inexpensive to bother with making them.

these are my dotting tools =)

4. Striping brush
A long with dotting tool I believe these are the must have for nail art beginners.
I bought mine on ebay again for like a 1$ (set of 3) and I been using them for a year now and I'm quite happy with them ;)
I think its better to buy the set of brushes for few $ because you can use them with every nail polish you own. It's hard to buy nail polishes with striping brush in all the colors you want , it can be expensive! 

So these are the tools I started with and I think are the basic.
Of course at the beginning it's a bit hard to make some beautiful and clean design, I used to think that my brushes don't work lol but with time you'll get better and better and your designs will look more prettier and prettier.

I hope this post will help all of you nail art beginners to start this colorful and great polish adventure :)
