The metallic gold, silver, white and black variants of this nail art pen were all sold out. But, I found a lovely pastel range of blue, green, lilac, yellow and pink. I settled for yellow and here it is ready to be reviewed!
Revolutionising the at home manicure, you’ll be able to create personalised, unique nails without leaving your house!
Each nail pen has a duo application system consisting of a thin nib for intricate art work along with a long thin brush to add strokes and lines. Thin nib for intricate art work. Long thin brush to create strokes and lines.
Includes 1 x Models Own Nail Art Pen – White 6ml.
INR 603 for 6ml
Each pen holds 6 ml of product and has a metal tip at one end and a striping brush at the other. The tube looks quite trendy and shows the exact color of the fluid inside. It has an outer pack which is transparent. Overall, colorful, fun packaging like most products from South East Asia.
My Experience with Models Own Pastel Yellow Artistix Nail Art Pen:
I could not create perfect lines with the striping brush as it would not hold the right amount of color and multiple strokes kind of dilutes the purpose of creating fine lines with the brush. The tip of the brush is quite blobby and definitely not meant for perfect lines, as claimed by the brand.
The metal tip on the other hand made me quite happy because of two reasons. One, I was skeptical it would be little dry (since it has travelled all the way from Singapore to India), but it was not. Secondly, the flow was perfect in the first attempt, and that is not something I had expected. I was prepared to squeeze it a couple of times before it would flow seamlessly, but fortunately it was quite a pleasant surprise.
Other than this, I am impressed with the staying power of this nail art pen, and once applied, it dries up pretty fast on the nails too. The packaging is easy to work with, even the beginners can create intricate and beautiful nail designs.
Once the cap was tightly screwed and when I tried to use some force to open it, the metal tip came off along with the cap and the polish was oozing out of the nozzle. Such a mess! I had to tweeze the nib out and place it back, and I’m sure it will happen again – and this is what I call the biggest con of this product. Also, the bristles are slightly uneven because of which the ends of the lines don’t look even.
And, here’s some nail art I tried to create using this pen. I am not a pro at it yet, so please bear with me! 😀

• The brush does not pick adequate amount of product in one go.
• Uneven bristles
• The pressure we are putting on the tube needs to be controlled
• Fairly expensive for the quantity
• Not available in India
• Also, I do not know what to do when it dries up, like use a thinner?
