Nail Art Pen - Born Pretty Store Review

*This product was sent to me for review, all opinions are my own

I'm back with another review! Born Pretty Store were kind enough to send me more products to have a play around with so I'll be posting a few more reviews in the coming weeks. Today is all about their nail art pens. I opted for the black pen because I tend to use a lot of black lines and shapes in my designs so I thought I'd see how it compared to a general striping brush.

The tip of the pen looks quite big but it can actually produce quite thin lines if you're steady and use a light hand (both of which I did not do very well). But nonetheless it produced a very pigmented colour and was so easy to use, literally just like using a texta and that's what I love about it; it's so simple to use. 

The base colours are both from Sally Hansen: Kelp Yourself and Water Orchid.

It's very important to allow your base colour to dry completely, I got a little bit eager and should have waited an extra ten minutes so a few times as I drew on my nails I could feel the polish was close to dragging, it didn't luckily but I think waiting at least half an hour is important, or use a quick drying top coat and then wait about twenty minutes.

I absolutely love this nail art pen and it's such a good tool for beginners who aren't comfortable with a striping brush yet. I honestly don't know how I've gone so long without one and I'm excited to buy the other colours!
