Caring For Gel Brushes

Caring For Gel Brushes
I have some pretty nice brushes for gel application ,both synthetic ,and sable. My problem is that I have to soften them up in alcohol first before I use them. First ,is that pretty much normal ,and second ,how do I keep them flexible and supple without them hardening like rocks ? I am afraid if I don't clean them off before and after use with alcohol ,any gel left on them will cure...any advice ? Smile

RE: Caring For Gel Brushes
Your brushes should not harden unless exposed to UV light including sunlight. You can either start using brushes that have their own lid or put a piece of tin foil over the bristles and store them in your drawer. My station is no where near a window so I do not have a problem with brushes curing but the last place I worked at was right in the window and I was curing brushes all the time.
