I really wanted to love this one. Really. I have been so excited to try Sally Hansen’s Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen. I am always intrigued by new formulations of my favorite products. I haven’t felt this much anticipation since the release of Avon’s Instant Manicure Dry Nail Enamel Strips.
After shaking the pen and pumping the color into the tip, I applied Sheer Beige polish to my nails The color was beautiful and the consistency was nice, being a cross between sheer and opaque. Unfortunately, I had trouble with the design of the brush applicator. It is pretty short and dense which created a streaky, uneven application. I often hit the edge of the pen against my freshly painted nail, ruining the manicure. Upon my first stroke, hairs from the brush started falling out onto my nails, and I quickly had to fish them out before they dried.
Overall, this product did not produce the revolution in nail polish that I had expected. Instead it will be thrown at the back of my drawer at work, to be used for a last minute manicure but never as a replacement for the real thing.
