I had planned to remove the polish because I didnt like the yellow, so at this point I was just experimenting. I havent really done a good sponge application and this was the first time I was using the pen.
The pen was weird. It was a bit messy in the beginning, I dont really know how I ended up with black ink all over my arm. It was really watery but very pigmented. I made the mistake of topcoating my colors before using the pen which resulted in pooling of the designs. I smartened up on the next hand and the pooling didnt happen as much. When I say pooling, think of trying to use water colors on glass. It was very effective and I may buy more of these pens to do some intricate drawings!
The rhinestones were a bit of fun. I bought a clearance set from the kids section at TJMaxx because there was a wheel of colored rhinestone flowers and some shitty polish for three bucks!!! I may pour some glitters into the polishes or something, they seem thin enough. But the stones were a find in my opinion!
Have you used the Sally Hansen Art Pens before? What are some designs you have done?
