Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Due to some technical glitches with the original Show Me Your Nails Thread, I am starting a new thread with @vegchililover78's blessing (She says "hello," by the way!).

 

Please share your nail looks, nail art and manicures!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I took it upon myself to do a little replacement brush comparison while BF shopping, and my last one finally showed up today, so here's what they all look like side by side

L to R: Glisten & Glow, KBshimmer, Night Owl

 

I'd be hard pressed to believe these don't all come from the same source. The Night Owl brush miiiiight be a touch fluffier, but I'm not sure on that, and I only ordered one of theirs, so even if it is fluffier, it could still be an outlier compared to standard stock. All three are extremely similar, if not identical, in any other way as far as I can tell!

 

 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  wow. That’s way to close!! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Ahhhhhh, just made a discovery!

Cupcake polishes (and ILNP and a few other brands) are not compatible with the g&g/kbs brush, the necks on their bottle are much smaller. But! Cupcake sells their brush now ($0.25), and it turns out it fits ILNP as well (no cap needed)!! Woohoo!! Guess I'm hoping they'll do a sale again soon 😂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  A-ha, I KNEW there had to be a wide brush out there that'd fit ILNP! Thank you for finding it! Definitely adding this to my future purchases list. 

 

And yep, I'm positive KBS and G&G (and apparently NOL) buy brushes from the same source. I'm very tempted to ask one of them for the source info so we can just buy direct from now on. 😂 I mean I'm sure I can figure that out if I spend more time poking around the diy interwebs. But I've got too long a list of other "look this up" rabbit holes topics to get through first. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown After the disappointment of those brushes nit fitting Cupcake and ILNP, was a great surprise to find out that Cupcake has their own and they fit ILNP! You are fully covered! 👍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin 

ILNP not having a replacement brush has been a headache for many for years...I was thrilled when I discovered last night that Cupcake's brush will fit it, yay!! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown - Price-wise, are they the same? 🤑

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06 

I can't believe I forgot the most important comparison of all 😱

 

KBshimmer: $0.15 for the brush, and caps are available for another $0.18, limit 50 every three months

 

Night Owl: $0.24 for the brush, caps not available

 

G&G: $0.25/brush, $0.30/cap, and also charges an extra $0.20 shipping per brush

 

G&G and KBS also sell their smaller brushes if for any reason you want that over the wide paddle.

 

You won't need caps for most replacements; here's a handy dandy reference list for many brands. The op has a great list, but there are several more in the comments as well, so be sure to check those out if one you are interested in isn't up top!

 

reddit dot com/r/RedditLaqueristas/comments/idilpl/list_of_polish_brands_compatible_with_glisten/?sort=new

 

I did notice brushes popping up at one or two other indies while BF shopping...I'd have to imagine they're all the same (assuming the brush here is the one that fits that brand to begin with, of course). I'm going to need 350-400 eventually if I want to replace ALL of mine, and it'll take me two years to get that many at KBS, so if I get a wild hair to finish this project quicker, I may shop around and see if I can do better than $0.24 at Night Owl. From what I recall though, the others I saw were also $0.24 or $0.25, so that may be about the best rate out there after KBS.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

thanks for all the info @RGbrown , it's great sleuthing.
