So.. The Topshop nail art pens?? I had super high hopes for these and actually dreamt of this kind of 'thin nibbed' pen when trying to do some more intricate designs.. BUT I just cannot get to grips with these pens! I know you have to pump and then just draw but mine didn't seem to work like that.. I had to pump onto a piece of paper then dip the pen in the ink to draw onto my nails. I either have faulty ones, or I'm just doing it all wrong? Any advise?
But other than that I think these nails turned out rather well... I love the British Flag and especially love this 'toned down' monochrome version of it. It's also something I've never seen on anyone else's nails before! Just wish my hand was a tad steadier then these would have been perfect! I'm a Virgo which means perfection is really important to me, so I'll never be truly happy with my amateur skills lol! Straight lines are probably the hardest thing to do nail art wise.. you can really separate the professionals from the amateurs by the straightness of lines lol!
