I'm not one for horoscopes and tarot cards. Fortune tellers scare me and I will never have my tea leaves read. I do, however, believe that my own horoscope characteristics are true. I'm a Taurean and amongst a lot of the other traits that we are supposed to have (like enjoying cake), I can be a bit reluctant to change things I'm comfortable with. Fortunately, I know when I am being belligerent and stubborn - most of the time. I can also embrace change too...
I've always preferred using detailing brushes and have managed to find some that I'm comfortable with. When I was at Olympia Beauty in September, I saw some nail art pens and thought 'Pah, it's not a brush, so I don't like it'. A few weeks later I found some on Ebay and after days of mulling it over, I finally bought some. Here's what I did with them.
These are my FIRST attempt at anything with them. They took some getting used to...
Here they are, my Nail Supreme nail art pens. £20 on Ebay.
I love that you can unscrew them in the middle and organise the colours the way you want to.
The flow took some getting used to. As I squeezed the pens, the varnish would sometimes spit out a big blob, right onto the nail. At other times, the pens flowed too much so I'd get thick lines instead of thin. I suppose it's all about practice though, isn't?
The nib is a lot tinier than other pens that I've used. If you unscrew the black lid, you'll find a normal sized nail polish brush.
I really like them...but I won't give up my detail brushes.
Do you have any of these pens? What do you think of them?
Have a lovely Sunday.
