Born Pretty Store review - Earthquake nails!

Hi everyone!!

I have another product review from Born Pretty Store to show you.

I wanted to get something i had never tried before to do some nail art so i chose these Nail Art Polish Pens. I chose the pink one to use.

At first i really had no idea what to use it for so it sat there on my desk for a while, until recently i came across Earthquake nails! Umm, what an awesome idea and i'd never tried it before.

I used my normal base coat of duri, then painted half my nail blue and the other half black. I alternated the colours on each side with each nail but it really can be done anyway you want. It also doesn't have to be perfect as you are just going over the middle line anyway.

I then used one coat of Seche Vite and let it dry. I'm fairly impatient and knowing that i will be working with a pen, i let it dry overnight and did the rest of the design the next day.

With the lid on the nail polish pen, give it a good shake and let it sit for about 5 minutes to get rid of any air bubbles (learnt this the hard way) When you take the cap off, you'll notice the nail polish pen has a white tip, you need to "pump" the white tip onto some paper towel until the colour starts coming through. Then your ready to start the earthquake design.

Start at the base of the nail where the cuticle is and "zig zag" the pen over the two colours. Try to get the pens' lines as close together as you can, but try not to make it one big messy block like i did in the end. haha
You'll probably need to go back over it a couple times as it can be a little bit sheer, more so on the "tips" of the lines. Then when your happy, let it dry for about 5 minutes then add your quick dry top coat. I was a bit impatient and it shows in my pinky finger where i added my topcoat too soon haha

Nail Art pens can be found on Born Pretty Store website and come in a variety of colours. They retail for $5.99 each which is an absolute bargain when priced up against the likes of the Sally Hansen ones, which in Australia are about $15-$20 each.  I also have a discount code for all my readers to use too, which entitles you to 10% off your total purchase. You can enter "MLL91" in the coupon code section when checking out. Born Pretty ALWAYS have free shipping worldwide on all purchases! =)
