What do you think of the new nail polish brushes?

If you’ve purchased nail polish recently, you have probably noticed that many brands are changing the brushes they use.  Since the beginning of time, nail polish has come with a tiny, round built-in brush (the shape of which, I have never truly been able to master).  In case you’re forgetting, this is what I’m talking about:

But these new brushes are completely different:

The wider, flatter shape has been adopted by many popular brands, and I have to say… I am a big fan.

At first, it was a little bit hard to get used to, but now I am totally hooked!  The width of the brush means more coverage and ultimately speeds up the painting process.  And since the brush is no longer round, I seem to have better control along the edges.

I switched back to the old style when I came across an older nail polish color that I loved, but I got super frustrated when I had to re-adjust to it.  Back to the new stuff it is…

I’d love to know whether you’ve tried this new polish brush and what you think about it?  Have your at-home mani/pedi’s gotten any easier?  Or are you struggling with the new size and shape?  Any awesome nail colors I need to know about… I’m in the mood for some new polish now that the sun is really shining in the Bay Area!
