Barry M Nail Art Pen

Hey Girls,
Apologies again for neglecting my blog...been super busy! I've literally spent at least 16 hours in the library within the past 4 days and that doesn't count studying time at home! Obviously with all this study it means I have to treat myself the odd time...so I did! And what better way than buying one of the new Barry M nail art pens. I was really excited to try these to see if they were worth the hype.

They retail at about €7.50 each, which is a little bit steep but I had to try one...and I'm glad I did. It's really fun messing around with these and experimenting with new styles. It's also really easy to use. As you can see from the photo below I tried to recreate a zebra print using Barry M 'Matt White' as a base coat. Super easy to do and literally takes a second. I put a top coat of gloss over it (I used Catrice High Shine), because I found after wearing this for awhile the nail art actually starts rubbing away, and the gloss gives it a good shine. 
Overall the product is good and lives up to the hype like all Barry M products. Unfortunately trying to do nail art with the hand you don't write with is a little bit tough...but do-able! It is a bit pricey, but it's a relatively new concept and I'll probably end up buying the other shades to mix it up.
Pro's: quick drying, no smudges, ability to create professional designs over and over again
Con's: Begins to fade really quickly, hard to use unless your completely ambidextrous

Have you girls tried these nail art pens? What's your opinion? Any other products like this you would recommend?
Thanks for reading guys!

    1. They actually are really easy to use. I heard bad things about the Model Own nail art pens, that they were to messy to make a god design but these are the complete opposite!
