These days I’m on a budget, and D.I.Y. is becoming my best friend. One of my money-saving projects has been skipping my usual manicure/pedicure and doing the deed myself at home. For a perfect French manicure and pedicure, I tried Nailene’s French Tip Pen Set.
The kit comes with either pink or beige base color (your choice) along with sticky nail guides to allow for an even line, and a clear, strengthening top coat. The best thing about this kit is the white, flat felt-tipped pen. Once you pump the top a couple of times, a thin paint is delivered to the tip allowing you to draw the line, rather than paint it. I really had doubts of my capabilities, especially when it comes to painting those teeny tiny toes. However, I found the kit easy to use and on my first attempt I was left with a very professional-looking French manicure and pedicure at a fraction of what it would have cost to have it done at a salon. The French Tip Pen Set by Nailene is available in most drugstores for about $9.
