The big brush comparison

Hey everyone!
Всем привет!

So when I was discussing Cuccio's brush in my Dubai Me An Island review I thought it would be great to do a photo brush comparison, because some things are better to be seen than described. I'm not going to talk much in this post, because the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. 
Когда я писала обзор на Cuccio Dubai Me An Island и, в частности, касалась такого аспекта, как кисть, я подумала, что неплохо было бы сравнить ее с кистями лаков других фирм и задокументировать это все, поскольку некоторые вещи лучше увидеть, чем прочитать длинное и зачастую нудное описание. Так что долго я в этом посте говорить не буду, фотографии, по-моему, говорят сами за себя.

All in all the Cuccio brush is easy to control, it's more narrow than the OPI one, but wide enough to be able to cover a nail with one stroke (if your mail beds are narrower, too, i personally prefer the 3-stroke method), it's evenly cut and is flexible but not too soft. 
В целом, кисточку Cuccio легко контролировать. Она уже кисти OPI, но достаточно широка, чтобы перекрывать ногтевое ложе с одного мазка (если оно у вас достаточно узкое, разумеется, я лично все же предпочитаю покрывать ногти лаком 3 мазками). Кисть ровно острижена и достаточно эластична, но при этом не чересчур мягкая.


  1. I prefer the thinner brushes. I have little nails and end up making a huge mess with the wider brushes. I was unhappy about the Rimmel brush at first but the formula was a dream to clean up.

  2. That's crazy! We don't have essie brushes like that here in the states. They're small and round...

  3. I adore thick brushes, though my nails are not that big. Among those you've showed I like OPI and Rimmel. I always fail to make it nice with a thin brush

  4. By the way, mini-OPI has a thinner brush, and for me it's really hard to use it

  5. My favourite is Rimmel I'd say, nice and wide and rounded. Cool to see them all next to eachother here!

  6. кисть эсси на фоне остальных просто метла какая-то))

  7. Very interesting post--fun to see brushes for brands I'm not familiar with and how they compare to ones I have used.
