Barry M Nail art pen white

I love nail art and have experimented a lot in the past with different techniques and using things like dotting tools and other nail art supplies, however I haven’t ever fully ventured into the world of nail art pens. I like to have an array of nail colours stored up that can paint an entire nail or I can use a tool like a dotting tool to create a pattern from the full sized nail polish. This is usually because I want to have the versatility of both uses both uses of the nail polish as I don't do enough nail art designs to justify a huge range of designated nail art products. However a white and black make good staples for most basic nail art designs and can be seen on top of most colours, so I was very excited to try this out.



The pen is white to mimic the colour of the product inside the pen, with the name and branding written on the pen clearly to give it a bit of character. The lid fits on the pen securely so I do not feel like this is a product that will dry up before I have had chance to use it up. The pen has a metal ball in so when you shake it you can tell the product is well mixed and ready to be used. The pen has a plastic nib in the end that allows the product to come out easily. The nib is thin and precise and allows you to create really neat and precise points or edges on the nail.

The pen was really easy to use and made such precise and clean pattern work on the nails that it looked really professional. I could do the finest of dot work, or draw a bigger, still neat looking design if I wanted to, as you can see by the heart on the ring finger. Although not prefect, the pen gives you the precision while you still need a steady and relatively skilled hand to carry out the patterns, which I am not great at. The pen dried easily and quickly and meant I didn't experience any smudging or indentations on the pattern work which can sometimes happen if the design takes too long to dry.

I am so impressed with this nail art pen and it is definitely something I will look into more if I have a particular design that I want to try out and I need nail art pens to use for it. The quality is perfect and exactly what I hoped for, especially as white can be sheer sometimes, I was glad this didn't need to be gone over several times. I have another nail art pen I am waiting to test out so I cannot wait to see how that compares to this one, but I am so impressed with this it will take a lot to beat these!

Have you tried these before? Which other nail art pens do you recommend?

  1. Aw that is super cute Sarah! I'm dreadful at nail art - however much I try it just ends up looking a complete mess. Gorgeous little quirk for Valentines.

    1. Thanks! The nail art pen made it so easy it was just like drawing with a normal pen so they are easier than some others I have tried in the past! z

    1. Thanks! I used a normal pen to draw out my design roughly nail sized on a piece of paper and then used the nail art pen to mimic what I had drawn on the paper, it helps as the tip is so precises that it does the hard work for you haha!

  3. I really like the look of that pen. I think it would be nice to be able to add little embellishments to my nails from time to time, although I'm not sure I have steady enough hands!

    1. Aww! I'm sure you would be able to, a little bit of practice and you will get the hang of it! I had a practice on paper with a normal pen and then tried to mimic the design as I used the nail art pen :)
