How To Clean Your Acrylic Brush

How to clean your acrylic brushes:


1. Fill a shallow dish with some monomer nail liquid

2. Leave your brushes to soak – it might take anywhere from 2 hours to overnight, depending on how stubborn the acrylic is

3. Gently rinse the bristles with warm water

4. Lie your brushes horizontally on a towel and allow them to completely air dry

5. Once dry, give them another soak in some fresh monomer for a further 2 hours

6. Again, lie them flat on a towel and allow the monomer to dry naturally


This process should remove most general product build-up. However, if your brush is really clogged up with lumps, it may be that your mix ratio isn’t quite right. Check the instructions of your nail acrylics to be sure you are achieving the right consistency.


Always check your brush cleaning instructions. You should with every brush get cleaning instructions. You can also buy brush cleaner and again check the instructions.


After every use, you should give your nail brushes a good wipe with a lint-free cloth and some monomer. Monomer, or acrylic nail liquid, is often preferred over brush cleaners because it is much gentler on the bristles. This regular cleanse is your first line of defence against dirty brushes!


Never use acetone to clean your brushes it will destroy them.
