First I will start with the French Manicure pen.
- easy to use
- does not rub off
- does not bleed with topcoat
- fast drying
- the tip of the one purchased was bent (this made application more challenging)
- multiple coats are needed
- bald spots may occur if not enough time is allowed between coats
Here are some pictures I took after application
This was free hand, it came out pretty decent for my first try. As you can see it can get a little lumpy if you go over the same spot more than once before the polish fully dries.
Next I applied Del Sol's Ruby Slipper (sorry, forgot to take a photo of this polish)
This polish was easy to apply, the glitter was dense in the polish, I applied 2 coats on the tips alone (no smudging of the white tips occurred).
To finish off the look I added a top coat and that was it!
Ta-da! the finished look ... indoors.
I'm sure that you have heard about Del Sol polish, it changes colour with UV light. As you can see in the pictures in normal lighting the polish had a clear base with silver glitter.
In Canada I have seen these polishes at Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall for $10 Canadian ( I picked mine up for $5 on sale). Recently on my trip to the Dominican Republic I saw these in the Punta Cana airport, they sold for $10 U.S each. The demonstration I received of the "colour change" was not impressive... it didn't change at all! After I had bought my polish I wanted to learn more and found out that these polishes are sometime defective. Had I have known this I probably would not have purchased it, but lucky for me mine did work :)
Here is what my mani looked like in the sun, the clear base turns a pinkish red and the silver sparkles shine though.
What do you think about the Sally Hansesn Nail pen and Del Sol colour changing polish? would you purchase these?
