“All of my
Kolinsky Sable Brushes are hand-made right here in the United States
of America. I do not use just any sable and my Kolinsky Sable is
carefully hand chosen for its color, texture and quality.”
“My brushes are carefully shaped and hand assembled by wonderful
brush artisans, who take great pride in their work. Before I
started making my own brushes here in the United States, many
brushes were imported from other countries, by art companies who
knew nothing about sculptured nail
History of the Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Sable
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.
At that time, there were 2 shapes of brushes; round brushes and flat
brushes. I liked the round brushes because they would hold enough
liquid to make a good-ball-consistency and they stroked the product
well 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 product.
So, I customized my own brush! I would take a round brush and then
squeeze the Ferrule with pliers to put a slight crimp in it. This
gave me a brush that had the consistency and 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.

ball consistency and flow.

How to take care of your Tammy Taylor
Kolinsky Sable 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 they dry. 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, and this
way 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 taken care of.
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
I use the
“black” deep-well Tammy Taylor Dappen Dish for my liquid and I use
the “white” deep-well Tammy Taylor Dappen Dish for my brush
cleaner. By having the 2 different colors, I do not accidentally
make nails with my brush cleaner.
After my brush
has been in the Tammy Taylor Brush Cleaner long enough to soften the
hard acrylic, I just wipe it off on a Tammy Taylor “Towelette”. Be
careful not to bend the hair too much when wiping, as the sable
hairs can break off.
my Tammy Taylor Brush, I dip it in my Tammy Taylor liquid and
slightly wipe it off to shape the tip. The Tammy Taylor liquid also
conditions and helps keep the brush shaped just how I like it. If
your Tammy Taylor Kolinsky Brush hairs get bent, just run warm water
over the hairs and re-shape them. Then, store it in my Tammy Taylor
Form Holder, with the brush hairs pointing upward.
