The most important part of painting your nails…

Okay, maybe it’s the second most important part after picking the color (I’m wearing Gold Viper from the NARS x 3.1 Phillip Lim collection–it’s a pretty much perfect metallic) is the brush.

I’ve tried a lot of nail polishes, so I know how important a good brush is. Too skinny of a brush and you’ll be left with a streaky finish, too firm of a brush, the coats will be uneven. You need a wide, soft brush for optimal coverage (fewer strokes, fewer streaks!) and the new NARS polishes have nailed it in the brush department. It’s one of the best I’ve ever used!
