Born Pretty Store product reviews

Many of you saw that recently I received from the Born Pretty Store some products for review. I asked what would you like to see first and the most of you were curious about the nail art fountain pens. This is why today I am going to show you  what this interesting product can do.



I was very curious myself, because besides brushes I never used anything for detailed nail art. 

The fountain pen kit contains: 5 different sized nail painting fountain pen nibs and 1 fountain pen holder. 

When I was a child I used these kind of pens for writing my homework for school, I never thought that someday I am going to hold again such kind of product in my hand.





As you can see in the pictures the pens are different sized. On the back of the package there is some Chinese text that I couldn't understand but I think that the most thicker pen, called G Pen, is perfect for outline drawing, the next three one is great to draw all kind of patterns and the smallest one is perfect for subtle, fine lines.



I made different kind of designs and I have to tell you that this pen is very practical when it comes to small details, but it scratches a little bit the surface of the painted nail, when it is not dipped well in the special ink. It is important that before starting to draw on the nails, the base color should be completely dry!


The one in the middle scratches the most.




I made a nail art with  Ciate polishes from the Nail Taxi Collection that were sent to me from the talented Tina, the owner of the blog tina_tech. If you don't know her work, just check her blog. 

I absolutely love the gray polish - Chinchilla and the glitter polish is Ciate - London Baby.

Together with this set of fountain pens I received a very pigmented black nail painting ink, that is water based, so it is not needed to mix it with water before use. The ink bottle is practical, the dosage can be controlled very well and easy because of the pointy plastic head of it.





All in all, it was a great experience to use these products. For me it is a great innovation in nail art and those of you who like to draw on nails or on paper too, this kit can facilitate your job.

If you like the fountain pen set, you can find it here and the different colored ink, specially made for this kit, here. For any kind of purchase from the Born Pretty Store, your welcome to use my discount code from bellow.

  1. I didn't think you were old enough to have used a fountain pen, I also used them pretty much during all my years in school :)
    It's a fun idea, but I still think I prefer my brushes, and they probably also can be used with the ink...

  7. I lived all my childhood in communism. That period of time was hard for my parents to buy modern pens, so fountain pen was the easiest to find in the stores. I remember that I was all the time covered with ink from head to toe :))
    I prefer too brushes more, but this is a great alternative and I enjoyed to work with it a lot.

  8. Multumesc draga Andrea pentru aprecieri. Pentru mine oricum pensula va ramane obiectul preferat pentru a crea nail art, dar chiar a fost interesant sa lucrez cu penita! Mi-a trezit amintiri din copilarie :))
