      Tired of paying a fortune for pedicures, I decided to start doing my own. The last few times I went to the salon for a pedicure, I paid close attention to the products that were used. Then I visited Sally’s Beauty Supply store and was able to purchase the majority of the products used. Once at home, and finally doing my own pedicures, I wanted to expand what I could do and decided to try making designs on my toenails. I wasn’t very good, particularly at making straight lines, so I went in search of products that would make this easier. I found the new Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen. The pen is just that - a pen, but with nail polish instead of ink. I purchased a black nail art pen, thinking I could make animal prints easier than using regular nail polish, which is messy due to the large brush. I paid $5.99 plus tax for the pen and I

      purchased it at the local Walgreen’s.

      I found that the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen is very easy to handle and work with because using it is just like a marker. Once the nails have been painted with a base coat and color, and are completely dry, you simply use the nail art pen to draw on the nail. It’s easy to maneuver because the barrel of the pen is much larger than a regular ink pen. I would say it’s comparable to a Sharpie permanent marker, but slightly larger. Because of the awkwardness of trying to draw on toenails, while trying to keep your knees out of the way, the larger barrel helps. To activate the pen, you simply push the tip on a hard surface to get the polish flowing. I used the thin cardboard packaging to do this. The tip is a sharp point, so making smaller lines or dots is easy. I was concerned that the polish would ...


      • run freely and make a mess, but it didn’t at all. It really was like using a pen.

        I was able to draw flowers, lines, and animal print stripes easily. Any mistakes I made were due to my own lack of artistic ability. The instructions on the nail art pen packaging stated that you could wipe the pen polish off easily with water and a cotton ball or tissue without damaging the polish underneath. While making black zebra stripes, I made a mistake and used the water-dampened cotton ball to try to remove what I’d drawn with the pen. Some of the pen polish came off easily, but the areas that were already dry did not. Also, the black pen polish mixed with the water and stained the skin around the nail. I had to completely remove all nail polish from the nail and still had a hard time removing the black stains from the skin. However, I didn’t have this problem when

        using the white nail art pen.

        Once the designs made by the nail art pen dry, the color isn’t as solid as when using regular nail polish. It appears somewhat faded, but this isn’t too noticeable once you apply a clear topcoat over the design. A clear topcoat is necessary to seal in the design. I would recommend that the base coat and color applied prior to using the nail art pen are applied in thin layers due to the pressure of the nail art pen’s sharp point pushing into the polish underneath. Even if the pen polish is removed with water, grooves may be left from the tip digging into the polish. This can easily be avoided by not making the polish underneath too thick.

        Overall, I would say the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen is the best product for nail designs because it is affordable, easy to use, doesn’t clump or run, and available almost anywhere common cosmetics are sold.
