I decided a couple of weeks ago (with rather a lot of 'help' from Amy, who was desperate to get some) that I wanted to buy some nail art pens- I'd been thinking about it for a really long time, and eventually I figured I'd almost certainly get some at some stage- so it may as well be sooner!
I got 24 pens for £7.75 (from this seller here!) and they arrived in about 16 days (as expected because it was shipped from China). I'm super happy with them- naturally I've already wasted lots of time already (time I should have spent preparing for Brownies) playing around and making patterns on a tissue box (closest thing I could find!), swatching each polish and labelling them (because I find it impossible to not have them in some kind of order...)
There is a fairly good selection of colours- there are more pinks and blues than any other, but that suits me fine because they're my favourite colours for nails! There's a black and a white, as well of lots of other useful shades for nail art :) I'm so excited to use them all!!!

|reds and greens|
|blues and black (LOVE the blue on the 2nd left!)|
Each pen has two applicators- a long thin brush that dips into the polish, and a pen nib (just like a tippex tip)- they are (as far as I've tried) really easy to use- I wrote the numbers on the tops with the black pen nib and it was SO simple to do:)

The formula is a little bit stinky, but they are all very well pigmented and apply evenly in one coat (which is pretty important for nail art!) - so I'm already imagining what I can do with them!
Have you got any nail art pens? Any nail art recommendations for me? (I can't wait to try them properly!!!) :)
