Stained nails

I put on a base coat and then let my daughter use the pen to make designs on my nails. Not sure why but when I took it off a week later the designs are STAINED onto my nails - won't come off even with pure acetone. I am VERY unhappy and my nails looks trashy.

I am a prof. manicurist and use these and other types of art pens daily. After reading many negative reviews, I feel compelled to give hints of use. These pens are actually very good. Tricky but useful. We prefer the thinner lined pens. Is easier to write with and dosnt flood the nail with to much polish. Black and white are our staple colors. First it's important to shake them very well when first opened. Otherwise will be to runny and not vibrant color. When you think it's enough, shake more. Theres no telling how long the've been sitting. If still to runny, it might be bad. Exchange for new one. Also consider. It depends on the color in my opinion how thin or useful any paint/polish is. Vibrant creme colors are the best for art. Black or white particularly. Frosted colors will almost def. be unusable for me. They are a thinner consistency. Usually apply lighter and never show up. For me at the salon, we never buy them in these colors. For individual use. You know what polish colors you prefer and which art paints are to light to be effective. As far as the paint cracking after top coat.... This is usually a problem with several types of paints/polishes if applied to thick and not allowed to dry thoroughly. To correct this issue, apply thinner coats of art polish, even if several are required to get the shade you desire. Let them dry a bit between coats. I'm confident this problem arises only when used as a french manicure. Dosn't matter the color. I've found that fast dry top coats will sometimes set up so quickly they will crinkle the paint. Especially if not thoroughly dry paint. If it's a problem, try a regular dry top coat. *This is one reason they still make several diff. types. I use in this case the cheapest one I can find. A rule of thumb for us is to stick to the primary creme colors. And a gold/silver glitter as well. I hope this has helped. We know how pricey and disappointing it can be to have problems with our art supplies when sitting down to apply something fun on your nails. Walmart has always been great about returns. These pens can get clogged or dry up if not stored properly. Take it back and exchange. Hint*** Gel pens are the best and usually in every color at the bottom of my sons back pack. Just sayin.... we use them alot. (don't bother with glitter or light colored ones. They dont show up enough). Enjoy

I looked on the website to see if they had any info on how to use the pen and then I started reading the reviews and was worried that I made a bad choice. Decided to try it out and it works great. I think the bad reviews were from people not using the pen correctly. It says to press on a hard surface (not your nail). So I used a scrap piece of paper and pressed on the end once and waited, then pressed down again and I saw the polish start to flow to the tip. once it filled the tip I drew a line on the paper before I put it on my nail. It makes perfect lines, no blobs at all. I think the key here is to only press on the end once, maybe twice to get the color flowing. I did not have to keep pressing the tip down. I used a light touch as well when I applied the pen to my nail. Works great!

This product is so bad that I actually took the time to create an account just so I could tell everyone not to buy it. I bought this pen in black to make nude/black french tips. It goes on smoothly and looks great at first. Immediately after applying the top coat the black tips began to crackle. By the next day a few nails were completely rubbed off and the others were beginning to show signs of wear. I read the label and didn't see anything about needing a special type of top coat. If that is the case, it should say on the package!

I got this for my sister for her birthday as a fun gift because we both love to do our nails, i got her the teal color and it worked great on the polish that she had on which was Sally Hansen Speed Dry polish, and I had on another brand of polish, and on the other brand it did not seen to stick on for long but that could have been just because i never put a top coat on. The point is that if you use the speed dry polish it works really well and then put the clear color from speed dry on top, the pen color will stay on for a while

I was so excited to get this pen, because they aren't products like these in Peru, so when i got it i thought it would be great... i've never been so wrong! at first it didnt came out, so i pressed harder and cracked my polish, when i pressed harder on the other nail, it exploted or domething, pouring white like a fountain. i cleaned it out and put it away. a couple of weeks later, i decided to give it another chance, but now it doesnt work at all, it came out translucid or something, doesnt work, im so disapointed!

I have the Neon Pink Pen and that works AWESOME, color is a bang on match to the box, covers great and is an attention grabber!!!!!! It doesnt turn bright pink untill you seal it in with the clear coat so dont be discouraged if it looks pale pink at first.- PINK is recomended I also have the Red (09) and that is more of a burt Orange with a bit of a sparkle. It looks awful and the color doesn't cover very well!!!!- The RED I would NOT recomend buying at all!

This is a very disappointing product. I threw out the two pens I had because they were not worth using. It didn't take long for me to realize that you had to use a top coat or your design wouldn't last two minutes. But the fact that the color cracks and base colors tend to bleed through made it that much more disappointing to use. I will not recommend this product to any one. In fact I would advise friends and family against buy this particular product.

My mother bought the black for me a few wks ago. At first i thought it would be pretty cool to make all my designs out of it. But boy was i wrong.. If your trying to do any type of flowy design it wnt work. I use the black for french tips all the time (Yes i love black) but it cracked HORRIBLY.. Even after putting on a few layers to cover the cracks it still looked bad :( And it comes right off if you dnt use a top coat..

-scratches off nail polish -nail polish is runny -pen barely works The only way I got this product to work so I could wear it was to remove the brush head, turn it around, and use the bulb of the brush. This was because I was unable to get the polish out of the brush without ruining my nails. It is incredibly disappointing. I have looked at these pens for 3 years and they still don't work. So much for innovation.

I have this product in gold, and it is amazing. I painted white tips and lined the top with gold, then wrote across the nail. It lasted over a week, I took it off before it wore off. I do have a similar pen from a beauty supple store that I paid even more for and it runs, globs and just make a pure mess. I would rather this product over the higher priced salon one anyday.

When i graduated i went to a few nail places but no one seemed to grasp what i wanted for my graduation and i ran across this and fell in love i can do what i want to my nails from dots to lines to french tip and I loved that. My only down fall with this is it takes a little long to dry. I will recommend this to anyone who like designing their nails like i do.

I bought this for my daughter so we could make her nails "pretty". We followed the directions & used it over another color and then applied a top coat. It was really impressive for the first hour or so & as the day progressed the TEAL color turned almost white. The product didn't even stay for one full day. I will not purchase any more of this product.

I purchased the white nail art pen yesterday and decided to do polka dots over my purple nail polish. It was awful. the product is very runny and looks like watered down milk. I had to take all my polish off to get rid of it, otherwise it looked like fat free milk splashed on my nails. I wouldn't recommend this product to ANYONE!

My mom bought me these when I first got into nail art and I was super excited....until I actually tried them. Even if my polish is completely dry it still smudges it, it splatters all over your nail and makes the design look terrible. This is such a waste of money.

While I LOVE the concept, I wish that I could return this product. It lasts for about 2 hours before it starts to come off. I tried various methods of trying to keep the color on, but nothing works. I would suggest finding a different product.

At first it didn't work for me, but then I used a good base coat, colored nail polish, used the art pen for polka dots, and then finished with a top coat and its lasted for a few days now. So, I'd recommend it for easy, cool nail designs
