User Review: I Am Elle on Sally Hansen 5 Minute French Manicure Pen Kit

Reader I Am Elle recently tried out Sally Hansen 5 Minute French Manicure Pen Kit (about $8.75). It's a nail kit that comes with light polish and a white polish pen for the tips of the nails. Take it away, I Am Elle:

Personally, I was semi-satisfied with the product. The pen is fun to use, and I really love the light pink tint of the nail color. The downsides: My nails are a little shorter than I would like, so it was difficult to apply the white nail polish neatly. It was hard to keep the line straight, so as you will see in the picture below, it is not perfect (and I am a perfectionist when it comes to my nails!). The white tip of my thumb is too thick for my liking as well, but I was too lazy to fix it. Sticking out tongue Since it was my first time using a French manicure pen, maybe I just need some practice! In the future I might use the French manicure guides until my nails are longer and easier to paint.

You can see her handiwork in the full review. And if you have something to say, don't be shy! I want to hear about which products you love and don't love. Write your own reviews in the Beauty Product Junkies group, and I might post yours on BellaSugar too.

I have just used this product on my toenails. I think it works great and is super easy! I haven't tried it on my fingers yet though...

my sister has this, and i used to steal it to do a french pedicure....the pen is LOADS easier to get a straight line on toenails with than a brush.

Yeah. I tried this too, but never used the nail guides because it takes too long for my nails to dry. It's worth it just to go to the salon and not have the headache. It might be easier on toes although I haven't tried it yet.

I actually bought this not too long ago, but there was no way for me to get a straight line going with that pen. So what I did instead was drag the pen on the underside of my nail, then paint over the top of the nail with the sheer pink. It turned out halfway decent, I'll say.
