"Your Tammy Taylor Custom Kolinsky Sable Nail Brush is the perfect tool for you to create Beautiful Nails with ease. I do not use just any sable, and my Kolinsky Sable is carefully hand chosen for its color, texture and quality…
Each Tammy Taylor Custom Kolinsky Sable Nail Brush is made right here in the United States of America, carefully shaped and hand assembled, by highly talented brush artisans, who take great pride in their work.
Before I started making my own brushes here in the United States, most brushes were imported from other countries by paint companies, who knew nothing about the nail business or sculptured nail brushes.”
History of the Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brush:
"I am very particular about my sculptured nail brushes, and a Beautiful Brush is the key to making Beautiful Nails. When I first started doing nails in my Salon, around 1981, I struggled with trying to find the perfect brush. I went through a lot of brushes and wasted a lot of money.
I did not like the painted handle on the old style brushes, because the paint would come off on my fingers when I cleaned my brush.
So, I would remove the paint on the handle before using my brush, and I would file the tip of the handle like an orangewood stick so I could clean up around the cuticle area when doing acrylic nails.
And, in the early 80’s, there were only 2 shapes of brushes; round brushes and flat brushes. I liked the round brushes because they would hold enough liquid to make a good acrylic product ball-consistency, and the “round” brushes stroked the product well, and without leaving brush marks.
What I did not like about the round brush, was how pointy it was when I was working around the cuticle area, or how fat it was when I was trying to pat the product.
I liked the flat brushes because they were better when patting the free-edge and working around the cuticle. But, I did not like how the flat brush could not hold enough liquid; making the balls too dry, too small, and leaving brush marks in the acrylic product on the nail.
So, I customized my own Nail brush! I would take a round brush and then squeeze the silver Ferrule with pliers, to put a slight crimp in it. This gave me a brush that had the consistency and the flow of a round brush, and the control of a flat brush. This slightly crimped Ferrule, that I created over 25 years ago, is used by most nail companies today, and is the most popular style in the Nail industry."
So, I customized my own Nail brush!
You have 7 different styles of Tammy Taylor "Nail Brushes" to choose from (All Tammy Taylor "Brushes" use Kolinsky "Sable Hair")
Tammy Taylor Custom “Oval” Kolinsky Sable Nail Brushes are available in 4 sizes:

The Larger the brush, the more liquid the brush holds, and makes a bigger ball.

How to take care of your Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Nail Brushes:
"I am very particular about my own personal brushes. I have a certain way I like to clean my brushes, and a certain way I like to form the tip, while the brush dries. Also, I have a certain way to store them.
When you take proper care of your Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable Brushes, they can last for years. I always have at least 3 brushes ready, so I can rotate my brushes while I am doing nails. When one brush gets dirty, I place it in my Tammy Taylor Conditioning Brush Cleaner, and then use a different brush. By having extra brushes, I am not in a hurry to clean my brush, so I do not start picking at it or cutting it. Good brushes like these are expensive, and they need to be treated with special care.
I only use Tammy Taylor Conditioning Brush Cleaner to clean my brushes. I do not use acetone or polish remover, because the chemicals ruin the sable hairs."
