Nailene Tip Whitener – The Lazy Girl’s French Manicure

I was in Boots on Saturday (yes, I spend a lot of time in there, what of it?) and was looking at the nail products. I spotted a the Nailene Tip Whitener Pen and thought I would try it, as I have always loved the look of a French manicure but have not done one since my white polish dried up some years ago. You can either buy the full kit for about £8.50 (as pictured) or just the pen which I think was £4.40. I just got the pen as I have a couple of pale shades of polish that would work fine over the top. I also bought some nail guide (£2.95) and I’m glad I did as it wasn’t as easy as the packet makes out! I tried it out yesterday and the results were pretty good. Any mistakes with the white pen can easily be corrected with a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover, and the white dries quickly allowing a top coat to be applied soon after. The pen is definitely easier to use on your nail tips than a white polish, and the finish is pearlescent which makes it less of a bright white if you just want to put a clear top coat over the top, something I will try next time I use it I think.
