It was mentioned recently by one of the lovely ladies who follow I Look Good Today that they would like to see more of my makeup reviews. I always love trying new products and have recently found one that has landed a permanent spot in my cosmetic drawer!
Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen, available in 8 colors, $8.49 at Walgreens makes giving yourself a manicure as easy as 1-2-3. Just click to dispense color, brush on and go!
As soon as I bought this and used it, I knew that some would love/like it and some would absolutely hate it! My first pen was in the color "Stone". It's a brown/red.
Here's how my first experience went. Click, click, click and the color comes down. On my first nail, there was too much. It comes down like a mega-drop of nail polish...and it was too much for my thumb nail. Now keep in mind I have extremely small hands. My wedding ring is a size 4. I thought, "oh great...bubbles for sure". Did the rest of my nails, but this time was a little more careful with my clickage.
I loved how it does dry quickly as the name suggests, and much to my surprise, that one thumb nail did NOT bubble. Waited about 15 min. and did a second coat (except for that one thumbnail which had enough). This time, much nicer. Had the click thing down.
Now I will say I am one of those girls who when they do their own nails looks like they came out with a salon manicure (I've always had a talent for painting nails), but I think that this pen applicator makes it much easier to be more precise with your polish.
When my nails were dry, I was pleased to see that the polish was still very shiny. The BIG surprise for me was that this product lasted through 5 days with little to no chipping. Gotta love that!
Have you tried this product before? Is it a product that you would try?
