A 'Cheap Brushes' Find

I was tipped off by Trevor over at the Headingley Club about these.  Acrylic paint brushes intended for Nail Art on Ebay:

Having used them, I can report that the three standard brushes are pretty good, my set all arrived in a matter of days, well packaged and with good points.  Far better than the equivalent Javis brushes for example.

I can't figure out how I might use the liner brushes - seldom had the need for a size 00 brush with 1-inch long hairs - but the quality of these also seems good.

The best thing was the price however; the set was only £1.89 in the UK, post-free!  For a couple of quid you can't go wrong!  That said, on Ebay they've now risen to a ludicrous price (hence no link folks); methinks the seller realised there was unusual traffic on the product and has tried to cash in.  Still you can doubtless find a similar product on-line, or in suitable stores if you cast your net widely enough.

It pays to look around.


  1. Interesting - ordered a set off Amazon....

  2. Thanks for the info! I'll check them out.

  3. Always in the market for less expensive brushes! I did a quick search on Amazon and got nearly 2,900 results. Methinks some investigation is necessary.
