To preface this, the Brush Saver is not an item for your nails!
Yes that's right, the Brush-Saver is for your brushes.
The contents consist of a special formula that can break down nail Dipping Powder. Its ingredients include acetone, which is a form of alcohol. It is similar to the regular acetone you use to remove nail polish, for example, but it is much less powerful and specially designed to remove the Dip Powder from the nail brush.
How and why do you use the Brush Saver?
When you use your Activator or Top Coats after you have applied the color powder, the Dip Powder sometimes "colors" the brush. For example, if you apply the primer over your pink nail color, some excess powder may stick to the brush and turn it pink.
If your brush has excess color in it, it can sometimes transfer to your nails. For example, if you are trying to apply blue nail powder and your brush is colored pink, mixing these two colors can result in a color you may not want. Additionally, excess powder in the brush can cause small clumps to form, which could also affect your manicure results.
How to use:
To use the Brush Saver, all you need to do is dip all of your Base, Activator and Top Coat bottle brushes into the Brush Saver bottle one at a time and let them sit in the bottle for about 1-2 minutes. After the 1-2 minutes are up, remove the brush and wipe the end of the brush with a paper towel. The brush should no longer contain any excess paint or powder.
That's it. It's that easy!
All liquids can also be purchased separately of the Doonails Dipping Powder Kit - Professional in our shop.
Regular use of the Brush Saver is therefore important for the durability of your brushes and also for the results of your dipping application. Of course you don't have to use the Brush Saver after every Dipping Powder application, but as soon as you notice that there is color in your brush or the brush is discolored, it would be time.
