I wasn't sure whether or not to do a post about these, as If you follow me on twitter you'll know I won these the other week in a Barry M comp. So as I hadn't bought the I wasn't sure whether or not to post, as I dont mean it in a bragging way,but they are so good I think they deserve one so here we go..
I used to do a lot of nail art when I was younger, but I kind of fell out of doing it over the past year or so, So when I heard about these I knew I'd have to get them and give them ago. So I was going to go off and buy them and then noticed Barry M were having a twitter competition, So I gave it a go not thinking I'd win because I'm usually rubbish at that kind of contest on twitter, But I won!
As soon as they got here I knew I'd have to try them straight away and this is what I found when using them...
They come in four different colours, Black, Pink, Silver and White. I know I'll get a lot of use out of the black , white and silver but the pink surprised me. They have nib applicator I'd say kind of like a felt tip pen, Which is very different to a lot of nail art pens on the market.
You have to pump the tip down a few times until the polish is dispersed towards the tip, Make sure you shake them well too before hand!
You can do lots of different things with them, I thought I'd demonstrate on paper first because then you can see the line thickness. I didn't use the white as I didn't think it would show up on the paper anyway in the first place.
I found them very easy to work with, they applied really nicely and dried very quickly. However you must use a top coat once you've finished your design on each nail otherwise it will come off!
I had a little play around with them over Essie Bikini so Teeny, I could of been more patient and imaginative but I was just too excited!
I really love the idea of these pens and I'm so grateful to Barry M for the Contest on twitter, So thanks again Barry M! I've found them so easy to work with unlike other nail art pens and I'm sure these will get a lot of use!
They are available in Boots , Superdrug and Barry M right now for £4.99, Plus they're currently on 3 for 2 in Superdrug!
Have you tried these pens? What did you think? What are your favourite nail art pens? I'd love to hear nail art suggestions!
