They're great if you don't want the design to last more than a day at most. Thankfully I got these on sale for a little more than a dollar, instead of having to pay full price.
I am also very pleased with the amount of control I have with the pen. I always seem to get a shakey hand when using a nail brush.
I just pushed the tip of the pen down before each nail and it was enough paint for the design.
SAME PROBLEM with the navy blue one, BARELY two uses and it's empty, yeah, that's great. Real great. I'm so glad I wasted my money on these. They weren't even old either, I had only bought them the week before.
Oh, and if you feel like wasting your money, you HAVE to put a top coat on them or it washes off because it's not nail polish, it's ink, and sometimes it looks splotchy and uneven, but that didn't bother me as much as the fact that they DRIED UP after two FARKING USES, the splotchy gave my flowers "character" you know, if I hadn't had to remove them because the freaking pen dried up after drawing them ON ONE
There are eight shades in total, and because I wanted to give myself some glitzy black nails à la Paris Hilton's black French manicure, I purchased the white shade. The fine-tip pen is easy to use, and the polish dried pretty quickly. You don't have to have an advanced degree in art to create great shapes, but it was harder for me to finagle with my opposite, less-dextrous hand. The pros? Because it's water-based, it's more environmentally friendly, and mistakes are easily fixed with a cotton swab and water.
The cons? The polish has a tendency to drag unless your nails are completely dry, and since it's water-based, it rubs off rather easily. I'd highly recommend applying a top coat if you're looking for a stay-put finish. While I don't see myself drawing shapes on my nails all that often and the results weren't totally perfect, all-in-all, these nail art pens are meant to be fun, and fun is what they are.
Note, I had gotten my three pens on sale, so I didn't have to pay full price for them, although I sure am glad I didn't. Of the three I bought, only one worked even reasonably well. They were inconsistent and it was difficult to get the polish going. Even when I did get the polish to work with me, it was too difficult to get the pen to do exactly what I needed it to do. If they had used a better way to get the pen to dispense the polish these probably would've been a lot better to work with.
