Price: $7.99 but it also depends on where you buy it from because a lot of retailers have been putting these on sale.
Where you can buy it: Walgreens, Kmart. Pretty much just be on lookout for them since their so new they'll most likely be popping up all over soon.
My Rating: 4 peace signs
Tip for Use: Make sure that you shake it up for a good 20-30 seconds, this will make it more workable and help with the consistency of the formula. Believe me if you don't shake it up good enough you will have a big mess on your hands, literally! You also have to let it completely and totally dry you can't guess with this because if you put a topcoat over it too soon there goes your design all streaky and messed up. I like to wait at least 10 sometimes 15 minutes, that is a really long time but I made the mistake of thinking it was dry before that time and my whole nail was filled with black streaks, not cute! I don't feel you have to push down the tip before every use as the package sort of leads you to believe but you have to be the judge, just take a look at the point and if it looks dry then you can push it down to moisten it more but if not then just shake it up and go! Also, never never test this on a bare nail you must have either a top coat or a nail color on or it will stain.
The Good: The fine tip really make it easy to do all kinds of designs, my personal favorite is polka dots, you can do them fast and always precise. Lines are easy too but you have to have a steady hand, it's just like drawing but instead of it being a flat surface it's rounded so you have to adjust to that. French manicures are extremely easy to do as well as checker patterns, the formula also lets you build on the lines if you need them to be thicker without streaks or empty spots. Pretty much any small design you can draw you can do with this pen but keep in mind if it's something that needs filling in such as a heart you will need to make sure you shake it before filling in so that it doesn't leave streaks. This pen is extremely convenient, fits well into your hand, isn't too bulky or heavy so it makes the "designing" easy. Since the formula is water based if you make a mistake all you have to do is take a slightly dampened cotton pad and wipe the design right off without messing up your actual nail color. How awesome is that?!
The Bad: The price is the biggest con for me, I mean $7.99 for .067 fl. oz! That's totally ridiculous BUT if you get it on sale such as a BOGO free then it's not so bad. If you have short nails like I do then have to really be careful if you're doing french manicure because if it hits your skin it is a biatch to get off, you have to try and hurry to the sink before it dries if you even have a chance to get it off quick. It stains your skin and doesn't budge without some serious scrubbing.
Overall: No matter the cons I truly LOVE LOVE LOVE these. For someone like me who really doesn't have much patience when it comes to nail designs (I mean like nail stickers were my bf's! lol) this pen makes it so easy to do cute designs and fast. I just really wish they were cheaper because I would so have them in every color. I'm also kind of worried how long that small amount is really going to last but so far after a couple weeks of use and testing it shows no signs of being done. But if the price doesn't bother you and you want to do some madd cute and easy designs then I would totally recommend getting these!
