Pick Your Pens
You can change up the look on any manicure by adding a few lines! These Sally Hansen nail art pens come in a whole rainbow of color and with pointed or round tips. They’re very easy to use- kinda like little fast-dry sharpies for your nails! Grab your favorite shades from a drugstore near you! Use a good top-coat to make your designs last longer.
How To Use Them
These Sally Hansen pens are more similar to ink than a thick nail polish, so they’re super easy to use. It can be a bit trickier to remove from your skin, so try not to get it on your cuticles. (It does wash off, tho!) To make straight lines, I suggest using quick strokes and balancing your hands on a steady surface. Hold the tips facing down when using to get an even flow.
You can make small or thick lines, little dots, and circles easily with these pens! I like these pens because you can kinda sketch the lines and smooth it out easily! They work great as dotting tools, too. If you struggle to make straight lines, you can use tape as a stencil and fill it in. This is an easy way to make patterns or stencils!
Glam up any manicure with cute tribal patterns, flowers, or any design you can imagine with these nail art pens! Turn your day into a glamazing one. If you have any good nail art tips, let me know in the comments!
