Nail Candy Pens

i'm so excited to share with you all a new to me company called Nail Candy! they make polishes that are designed to make nail art easy... and i'm all about easy nail art! the first Nail Candy post will just show the pens and how everything works, the next couple posts will be manicures done with the pens.

the pens are such a great idea... they have both a traditional nail brush and a very fine patented 'Micro-Tip' applicator that makes doing designs easy. lets get started with pictures, and i will describe all the attributes as we move along!

first up, these two pens make up the Love Letter collection. this collection isn't available on the Nail Candy vending website yet, but keep checking back! the pens retail for $10 and come with two polishes in each pen.

this is the Mardi Gras collection, they are available for purchase right now!

one really exciting thing i discovered is that the pens will come completely apart, so you can mix and match them, or store them more easily!

this Bling It On pen has golden rhinestones in one half, and adhesive in the other. since it has the dual purpose cap, you can paint the whole nail with the adhesive and place the rhinestones, or you can place just a dot of adhesive with the pen and place the stone exactly where you want it! it retails for $8.

here's what the Micro-Tip applicator looks like, it's quite fine!

these Micro-Tip applicators aren't meant to be pushed on, instead, the bottle of polish is malleable and you simply squeeze to get polish to come out! in case the tip gets clogged, each pen comes with two little wires to use clean them out if simply wiping them with polish remover isn't enough. make sure to be gentle with the little wires, i didn't realize how fragile they were and pulled hard on one and it curled all up!

check out to see all their products... they also have a store locator so you can check and see if any of your local stores carry them!

have you tried these out yet? let me know what you think in the comments! Ria :)

:: these products were sent to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::


  1. At first these pens were great, but after a while, the polish came out in uneven clumps. They ended up being more of a hassle than they were helpful. :-/ Now I have a bunch of them sitting in a pile that have been untouched for months and months.

    1. have you tried the suggestions on their Q&A page ( if you have and nothing is helping, i would suggest getting in touch with them directly and telling them what happened!

  2. Surely, these customized pen and pencil sets can be good in one way or another. It can be a perfect office merchandise that you exhaust to take note during meetings. Green ink is not the usual ink that is carried in offices. Using such will undoubtedly catch hold of everyone's interest. Just keep in mind that you should not use the green pen in signing imperative documents because it is informal. Moreover, these items can still be used in schools.campo marzio pen
