I’ve just been rifling through my old nail art photos and reminiscing about the amount of patience I used to have. I could easily spend half the day doing some sort of zany nail art, taking advantage of anything I could get my mitts on – nothing was safe.
These days I’m struggling to be bothered. I’ve got less time to be faffing with dotting tools and Scotch tape and am usually distracted by Chicken’s fluffy coat. However, I found something in Superdrug that made nail artistry a bit less bothersome. Behold the Barry M Nail Art Pen. Rather than containing actual nail polish and a thin brush like most nail art pens, this handy piece of kit is more like a marker pen so is easier to control, less messy and pretty much instantly drying. Win win win. While at the Barry M station, I was also mesmerised by the Jelly Nail Paint colours so I bought two cheery shades; Grapefruit and Greenberry. I’m sure you can guess which is which.
Armed with my new Barry M nail art supplies, I opted for a leopard print design. Can I just say, the Nail Art Pen made this incredibly easy and fast. It was fun to do, and with a coat of Seche Vite on top, the polish stayed in a presentable state for 10 lovely days. Keep in mind, this Barry M Nail Art Pen absolutely needs a top coat as it rubs off if exposed to everyday hand-based activities.
