Nailene French Tip Pen Review

I was sent a bag of goodies to review from Nailene late last year and this French Tip Pen sat in the to be tried pile for a while. Now that I have an internship, I cant have wild and crazy colors on my nails anymore. Boooo! (Yeah, I know.) So I found this last weekend and decided to give it a try. Here is what I used for my manicure:

L to R: Essie Pink is the Link, Nailene French Tip Pen, Nailene top coat (wait, I actually didnt use that, it just came with the pen), Poshe Super Fast Drying Topcoat

When I opened the pen, it looked like a felt tip marker. Seriously. That must be why the packaging says "mistake proof". Really, this thing is so easy to use.

So the packaging says pearl white. I'm assuming they mean silver. Thats what it looked like on my nails. I used Pink is the Link as a base color just to even out my nail color and then 3 "coats" of the pen to make my tip. I dont think this pen uses regular nail polish, but more on that later. The consistency is a bit thin and it dries so FAST. Here is the manicure I did, and I also added a nail sticker just to spice it up a bit.

Now this is the first day of the manicure. I was totally in love with this pen. By day two, I began to notice chips and major tip wear. I attribute this to the "polish" in the pen, like I mentioned earlier I dont think its actual nail polish.

This is my only problem with the pen. Although, if I wanted to solve that problem, I probably could just carry around the pen and do touch ups. Application is easy and it dries fast. The packaging says for tips and toes, so maybe it would last longer on the toes? If you like french manicures and want to do one in a hurry, this would be the thing for you.

  1. That's great! I haven't use such a nail tip pen before. Hope it will make my nails more gorgeous.

  2. This is so cute to me. I can't wait till my nails grow back out so I can put my pens to use again.
