Nail Candy Pen Review and Swatches

Hello!  Today I have a review for  the Nail Candy Pen.  I was sent the "Love Letter" set, which is a Valentine's collection.

The Nail Candy pen is a nail polish pen with two different polishes in each pen.  Each polish has two applicators, a normal polish brush AND a micro-tip pen for nail art. 

The brush application was really nice with all 4 polishes. The Love Letters Set comes in 4 very girly and Valentines colors.  A red cream, that was opaque in 2 coats and a light pink cream that was opaque in about 3 coats.

A bright hot pink shimmer that was opaque in 2 coats and a white shimmer that was also opaque in 2 coats. 

I did a cute Valentines skittles mani with the micro-tip applicator. 

The micro tip is pretty easy to use.  You just lightly squeeze the polish container to get a good flow going to to your pen and do your nail art.  You don't have to squeeze hard at all to get a nice even flow and you just draw like you would a regular pen.  I did a kind of dotting motion when I was filling in the heart and leopard print.  The red was my favorite to work with.  The red was actually my favorite over all, I love the color. 

I really enjoyed trying these out, I've never used anything like them before.  The micro tip is pretty fantastic and unique. 

You can check out more from Nail Candy on their website, Nail Candy Pens.  Each pen retails for $10 and they have a variety of colors.
