Best. Thing. Ever!

I know I'm not really a regular on here, but I can't resist shouting this... LOL.


I went to Target this morning and saw a bunch of nail polishes on sale. One of them being a new Sally Hansen nail polish stick, but in chrome colors. Since it's spring and summer, I'm more of a French/pastel wearer, so I didn't buy. HOWEVER, they did have next to the chrome sticks, nail art pens. Now, I've bought pens before, but this one, OMGoodness, it takes the cake! I bought the white since it says it can be used for easy French manicures, but they had it in black, red and another color (I can't think of it). I just tried it out and it is completely awesome. Mind you I was just fooling around, but I was able to make perfect polka dots, do an easy French tip, write (yes, write!) "mom <3's Matt" (to show the kiddo when he gets home, lol) and do a smiley face. All very easily. The tip is fine point and stays hard. It's not a polish type tip. LOVE this. Will definitely go back to grab the other colors. :)

That's sounds awesome, Erin. Thanks for sharing. What color do you think you will get next?

I found them online: http://www.sallyhansen.com/product.cfm?product=374.

Looking at the colors (Target did not have all of those) I think I'd get the black and the silver maybe. Definitely another white though! I got a mani/pedi last weekend and the white on the French on my toes is coming off. I just touched it up with the nail art pen. Sooo easy.

And, FYI - if you don't use clear/top coat over the nail art, it rubs right off. Probably would come off with water too. But I just rubbed it off. :)

Very cool! I'll have to try it sometime. I do my own french manicures and I never do a manicure without using a base and topcoat. That really preserves

FYI those pens are also on sale at Walgreen's this week (at least in my area).
