Today's post is about some of the crazy brushes I have come across in my stash.
First up is a bottle Bourjois with this seriously wide brush. It's meant to be a one second application, but I couldn't get the hang of this massive brush.
Just as a comparison, here is my OPI DS Glamour, with the OPI pro wide brush. See what I mean, that is one seriously wide load! Because its so wide it holds so much polish, which makes it hard to not get cuticle flooding.
Next is a bottle of Stuf. That's Stuf. the brand, ok. It seems that this brush is a little too long for it's bottle, and therefore it curves at the bottom of the bottle. This is an old polish and it has obviously gone like this over time, but geez it really made it a PITA to apply polish neatly with this. You think you are lined up for a nice neat curve at your cuticle to find the brush kick to the side and smear polish down you skin.
Next is a new polish. This is my bottle of Orly Lunar Eclipse. Half my bristles are snipped halfway down on a diagonal. This leaves me with only half the brushes to apply the polish and its really thin. Not a huge problem, but I thought I would include it. I makes you wonder what happened to this brush in the manufacturing process for it to end up like this.
Finally, my favourite screwed up brush. This one is hilarious. Now those strands sticking up are actually caught in a split up the side of the wand. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened this bottle, those strands flicked out and splashed polish across my table. This is another old Australia brand called Blush-amour. Evey time I open the bottle I think, I should cut these off, but I never have. I think its more fun this way.
So how many defect or 'strange' brushes do you have in your collection?
