I'm so sorry that I've not blogged in over a week! I've been so busy and away from home. I went to stay with my sister who is at University and to see Pink in concert. She was seriously amazing!!
Whenever I'm away from home I end up not being able to make my nails as pretty as usual because I don't want to carry all my acrylic paint and other supplies around. I'd seen reviews of these Barry M nail art pens and just knew I had to buy them! You can get them from Superdrug and also Boots for £4.99 each. They are currently 3 for 2 in Superdrug so I snapped up the black, white and pink. They do a silver pen also but I'd seen that this one got the worst reviews so I left it. I'm not usually bothered about nail art pens but these ones seem very different. They have a tip like a felt tip pen and you pump to get the colour to come out. You have to pump quite a few times when you first get the pen to get the colour to come out, but after that you just pump every time it runs dry. The colour applies evenly and dries pretty quick on the nail and it doesn't streak when putting topcoat on!
I was amazed how easy these are to use. I did a really quick rose design with the pink and white pens as shown below. Seriously, any one can do this, it's just swirling the pink pen and then the white one and it looks super cute in person! I'll still be using my acrylic paints for my detailed designs, but when I'm away from home I can now easily carry these brilliant pens around with me and still have fancy nails!
For the base coat I used Nails Inc Haymarket. I LOVE this colour so much! There are 3 swatches below showing 2 coats of Haymarket on it's own. Perfect colour for this season!
Have you picked up these nail art pens yet? xx
