Striped nail art using fan brush

Hi,
Today I'll show you a lively striped manicure as well as my new 15 pc nail art brush kit

I got this set from an online nail art store, Born Pretty and they cost $5,96. They're quality brushes of different dimensions and shapes in order that you get sophisticated detailed manicures. 
The set contains drawing, painting and liner brushes, from thinner to thicker and from smaller to bigger ones. The thin ones are really helpful when creating small details. They are thin enough and you don't have to cut them to create the perfect breadth. 

With the brushes bellow you may create one stroke nail designs. 

The set also includes a dotting tool for really small dots with perfect accuracy. 

Last but not least are the fan brushes. If you wonder how I created the manicure in the first picture of the post, they are the answer. Using these brushes you may create really thin lines on your nails. My inspiration for this manicure was this Youtube tutorial. Please watch it to see the technique used.

For this manicure, I started with two coats of China Glaze -Lemon Fizz. The polishes used for the lines were Dior -545 and 671 and Picture Polish -Citrus. I finished with a clear top coat. What do you think?

And here's another manicure I did using the same technique, but different colours. Which one do you like more?
