Of course, you can use some of the other art brushes for nail art, but you might need to work on them to make them suitable for nail art. Also, they are sold almost at the same cost, so instead of that, it is always advisable to invest in nail art brushes specially designed for nail artwork. They are not so expensive too.
Striping tape is the thinner tape used to create nail art designs. This is the third wonderful nail art tools I can say.
