I have wanted this for the longest time but never bought it. I don't know whether I thought I wouldn't use it or it was just a bit more than I wanted to spend (£6, can be bought online here) but I've just never taken the plunge and made the purchase. I kept seeing all these cool posts on the nail art of other bloggers and I just couldn't resist any longer so here it is, it's finally mine and I love it!
The only available colour right now is black but I hear there is a white on the horizon so it's only a matter of time 'til colours are introduced. After I bought this I also saw an Andrea Fullton Version in Superdrug that was slightly cheaper I believe and had silver and pink versions so I may have to try those next.
Anyway... it has two applicators , one when you unscrew the lid as you would a conventional polish is a very fine "striping" brush.. see below
The other when you pop off the cap on the lid is a pen. You squeeze the polish through the tiny nib, it's a genius little device really that allows you these two effects from one relatively inexpensive product.
It's easy to control and you could either achieve some really detailed patterns or a simple dotted effect with a lot less effort than you'd think.
As you can see from my random doodle... I think the pen end will be my favoured applicator, the striper is all well and good but there's a lot more room for error with smudging and the like.
