When I finally got my hands on this product, I was so excited. But when I went to use it, it started to leak then a few minutes later I tried to use it again and nothing was coming out. I thought I got a defective pen, so I took it back to the store. When I got my refund I went ahead and bought a new one thinking it would be fine. Well, I when I went home to try it again, it took me forever to get it going and flowing right. Then when I did some nail art, and I was doing the ice water trick to make your nails dry faster and when I took my hand out, almost all of the work I did was gone. Once I redid my nail art, I out on my top coat and it smudged then later rubbed off.and also, I did give it another chance and use it again a few more times but by about 3 weeks of use, it was all used up. Please note that I only do my nails once a week. I'm very dissapointed with this product and I hope no one wastes their money on this.
Are you kidding me
I loved the idea. I bought orange and some blue-ish color. The first time, I didn't put a top coat. Within 15 minutes all my designs were rubbed off.
The second time, I just made one small blue line on each and put a top coat. I take off my nail polish, only to see that I have a lovely blue line stained on every single one of my nails. Great. How long until it grows out and I can clip it off?
Not Worth the Money
It was a terrible product! It cost 8 dollars and it was not worth it. At first it didn't work. I pushed in the pen and right then, it exploded all over my jeans and desk. I don't reccomend this product at all. It is also very watery. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
i bought these pens a few weeks ago to do a new tutorial with (flowers). i purchased both the black and white pen, from my local Myers store. when i finally got around to using them, i could hardly get them started! it took me around 30 minutes to get the black one even going and then it started glooping all over the place, so a further 10 to get it flowing smoothly. the white pen only took about 10 but still, 10 mintues is to long in my books.
although i will add once you get them starte, the are fine. no smudging or anything, but certaintly not worth forking out $12 or close to it for it, if your patient they are great!
bit of a dissapointment since i love all my other sally hansen products.
I really really hate these things. The polish is thick and gritty. Without a topcoat, the polish could come off by just sliding your finger against it. With a topcoat, the polish smears and there are streaks through it. It is fun for little kids, but just get yourself some nice thin brushes: it saves time, money, and you end with a better design that lasts longer.
I tried this product after hearing some good reviews on it, and I really wanted to try "border nails". I picked up the black one and after spending the time to paint my nails and LET THEM DRY I went to use this and it literally exploded all over my nail, was super watery and leaked EVERYWHERE, even under my nail. To top of the frustration, it STAINED my nails. Returned it the next day...I'm still picking black out of my cuticles. :/
Didn't like it
...I didn't really like it... I got these in black and white and the product comes out when it feels like it xD and when it feels like it... too much comes out for my liking It was extremely expensive and dried up in a month (no returns after exactly 30 days from where I got it from...it was more than 30..twas like 33 xD) But ugh... would not buy again nor recommend it .... If it works for you great :D
I have a few of these, white, black & "hot" pink. The pink is REALLY light, not hot pink at all. More like cotton candy. Without a top coat these will come right off, but they have pretty good staying power with a nice top-coat. I think they were a little expensive for what the product is, and how lightly pigmented they are, but there aren't many other options & these are a quick & easy way to add something to your nails.
