Essence French Manicure and Pedicure Pen Review

Hello cuties,
Finally my final exams are over and I am a graduate now. It is such a happy moment for me. However I don’t know what to do till I get my results, looking out for some summer internships. Anyways I am a big fan of all the stuff that is related to French manicure. It is one of the easiest way and my on-the-go look when I don’t feel like doing anything else to my nails. I have tried a lot of French manicure stuff which would save time. This is actually the best alternative to go with in that case. Essence is one brand that I am loving these days for their girly and summery stuff. I picked this on the spot when I noticed it on the counter.


Price: Rs. 249 for 3 ml

Product description Essence French Manicure and Pedicure Pen

Create your personal interpretation of the french look: Essence’s formula for long-lasting color and the extremely fine tip enable an accurate application on the tips of your nails and ensure a wonderful and original french look. Available in one color.

My experience with Essence French Manicure and Pedicure Pen

This one is specially designed for a French manicure and pedicure look. It comes in only one colour that is white. This comes in a white packaging with pink font. It is so slim and handy enough to be carried even in the pockets. It comes in a pen formula which makes it the easiest to use. However talking about the tip; it is not a brush. It is not even a sketch pen tip as well. It is made up of plastic and resembles a sketch pen tip but it is actually not. It has a small hole in between which ejects the white polish.


Firstly I did not know how to use it. So I was trying to paint it like a sketch pen on my nails. But actually I learnt that the tip has to be pressed a little for the first time and then as like a normal pen you start painting your nails. I had got it in February and used it only once for my cousin’s wedding. Next time when I took it out for review, it did not come out properly. Hence I pressed it hard and the picture will tell you what it did. It spilled in such a large quantity all over my nails. After that it worked properly. It draws a line precisely and helps to fill in the polish in just a minute. However a double coat would be needed. A single coat looks uneven. And to my surprise it dried in just a minute. I was able to create the look in a jiffy and the drying part was so quick. That was such a big relief! It does not chip that quickly, it chips after 3 days or so. But a quick touch-up may take less than a minute. I would highly recommend it to all the French polish look lovers!

Will I repurchase/recommend Essence French Manicure and Pedicure Pen?

Yes but of course! I loved this stuff and this is going to be my HG French pen for both manicure and pedicure. I am going to get some more of this. I would suggest you all to get and try this as it creates French manicure look with ease and quickly.


IMBB Rating:




I am a very lazy person and I hate slow-drying  nail paints. I am not patient enough for it to dry and then I met this helpful buddy. Many a times when I feel I don’t have much time but still want pretty looking nails, I just remove this and the work gets done in minutes!
