Dry brush nail art is a simple and easy nail art design to try. You don’t have to have mad artistic skills to pull this look off, and it only takes a short time to create.
The dry brush nail technique involves wiping almost all excess polish off of a nail polish brush and dragging it across the nails. You can use almost any color combination you want and layer them any way you want. The effect results in a distressed or “grunge” look and by no means have to be perfect like some nail art designs!
The end results, though? Pretty spectacular! Take a look at these awesome dry brush nail art techniques and see for yourself!
