Review - Spooky Nail Art Pens

After a long phase of fearing freehand nail art I recently decided to get some nail art pens. Bright as I am, I bought the four Spooky Nail Art Pens I'm reviewing today on impulse instead of waiting a bit and buying a bunch for less money on ebay.




Each of these pens cost about 4 € and have a thin metal tip and a striper brush. As these are Hallowe'en items they come in four 'typical' colours:
  • black - basic black creme
  • green - shimmery, my favourite
  • orange - bright creme
  • yellow - almost neon
The polishes are a bit different in texture: the black and orange dots flattened completely, the green and yellow ones didn't.




To swatch the pens I applied China Glaze White on White and Liquid Leather:


The first swatch-photo is badly lit, but gives you a pretty good idea of the colours on white, while the one I took with flash is pretty awesome for showing the colours on the black base.




Spooky Nail Art Pens are pretty good quality, easy to use, and the striper brush is very skinny. If you want them to dry you absolutely need to use top coat!
I got these at BIPA, maybe they are cheaper now that Hallowe'en is over.

Hi, what a nice review, those pens look good and relatively cheap, are they from the US? I really like to buy locally if I can but never seen any. P.S. Your disclaimer is so witty! lol

Thanks, Nora! *blushes*
Upon closer inspection the label says 'MYLOGO COSMETICS, Salzburg, Austria' but not if they're actually produced there. Google supplied this homepage, which isn't all that informative, either: http://www.my-logo-cosmetics.com/
