Models Own Nail Art Pen

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.
Are you into Nail Art?
Any great pens you’d recommend?

    I love this pen I must use it every week! You can do some great designs with it. The pen end is definitely my favourite too for creating quirky patterns! When you mess around with it and see all the different things you can do with it, it does turn out to be a bit of a bargain investment! Have fun! X

    I've got this pen but find the pen applicator can be a little temperamental about splodging everywhere!
