Today I have a special treat for you guys! I was recently contacted by Nail Candy and was asked to review their nail art pens! If you're not familiar with Nail Candy, they are nail polish pens that apply polish with a normal brush as well as a special "micro-tip" applicator.
I received two pens from Nail Candy's "Live Colorfully" set, which is absolutely perfect for spring. The creamy pastels have endless possibilities for Easter, St. Patrick's Day, or springy floral nail art. As you can see in the photos, each pen has two colors. Each color can be brushed on just like normal polish, or you can use the micro-tip pen to create detailed nail art. The pens twist apart at the center, making them easy to use, especially when you're using the normal polish brush. The "bottles" are made of softer plastic, which allows you to easily squeeze out the polish when you're using the pen function.

I started my nail art with two coats of each polish. These polishes applied very well and, with the exception of the green polish (which has more of a sheer, jelly finish), were opaque in two coats. After applying a coat of Out the Door to dry my base colors, I did a "v" pattern on each nail with some little accent dots.
I am very impressed with the Nail Candy pen! First of all, the polish itself has a really good formula. It applied really well with the brush and came out very smoothly when using the nail art pen. I was a little afraid that the polish might bubble when coming out of the pen tip, but it really did not and it created even, crisp lines. The pens come with a tiny pin that can be used to unclog the pen tips if any dried polish blocked it, which I can see coming in handy once these pens are used a few times.
I would definitely recommend these, for both nail art "newbies" and those who are more experienced. They make nail art VERY easy and these is no need to worry about brushes and extra clean up.
