Happy Sunday my lovelies! I hope everyone’s been having a great and relaxing weekend :)
These are really easy to use. Directions are printed on the pen itself “Shake me – pump & use” and it is that simple. Just remember to keep the cap on the pen when you shake it or you might make a bit of a mess. I pressed the pen down a few times on the first use to get the color to come out evenly, I pressed it against paper. Don’t over pump though or you’ll get too much color and it’s going to be hard to draw detailed things. If you use it for a bigger design then you need to pump it again when ever it seems that enough color isn’t coming out anymore.
You can draw very detailed lines and tiny little things with these pens. What I really fell in love with was the tiny little dots you can do! Always the same size, perfect shape and so tiny. I just couldn’t resist using only dots to create my first nail art design with this. You can just dot-dot-dot away. No need to keep dipping a dotting tool in polish and then get uneven sized dots. This was so quick and so easy to do! I’m gonna buy at least black and white pens too.
I used Essence Top Of The Ice-stream and Flormar U02 as a base for my floral dots design. I let the manicure dry well before using the pencil. When you’re all done with your design don’t forget to use a top coat to protect your nail art! I used the pen on top of the polish cos when I tested it on top of a quick drying top coat the color didn’t apply as well and evenly as it did straight on the polish.
