I am impressed with the ease of using this nail pen. I was a passenger in a car when I first tried this product. Since I knew I would be in the car for awhile I figured I might as well give it a try to help pass time. Worst case scenario was I might end up having to buy some remover if I made a mess with it but I was pleasantly surprised. At one point I did hold the dispenser down for too long so had to work fast to distribute the color. I was more careful the next time and it was so easy. I used the color "stone" and it was really pretty. The brush is larger than the traditional bottled polish but I find this to be a plus. The drying time was very quick. When applying a second coat of any polish I always wait a little longer than I think I need to. I have learned the hard way that applying the second coat too soon will cause any polish to look uneven and/or gooey. The instructions tell you to "shake well" and I think this is a very important step to receive a nice even flow.

The polish did start to chip on the tips of my nails within a couple of days but it was not a big deal to do a quick "touch-up". I have this issue with any nail polish unless I apply a good top coat. I will be buying more colors.

I was looking for a color to match a bathing suit I had for a weekend at the lake.  I also have been a nail biter for 30 years and had recently stopped and been getting manicures.  Needless to say I don't have a lot of experience painting my nails.  I thought these color quick pens would make doing my own nails easier.  Well I gave the product 2 stars because it did in fact make the process easier.  I bought the color green chrome, I don't know if that had anything to do with how well it lasted.  I used an OPI base coat and top coat that I purchased from my manicurist.  I followed her advice regarding waiting between coats for them to dry etc...  The first thing I noticed while painting is that the polish streaked really badly and multiple coats were a must for full coverage.  My main complaint however was that the polish had chipped in many places by the second day.  It didn't last at all, and based on past polish jobs done by my manicurist that had lasted weeks, I would expect my amature job with quality products to last at least while I slept.  Don't know much about the product drying out as I haven't tried to use it except for that one time.

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

I like Sally Hansen's Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen. This nail pen really makes painting my nails more convenient and made less of a mess. I love how you have the control of how much nail polish is emitted off of the nail pen. These nail pens create a smooth mess free nail and I love how shiny the nail polish is. I am also prone to shaky hands when I paint my nails but by using the nail pen by Sally Hansen I do not have to worry about getting nail polish all over my fingers. I also love how many various nail polish colors are offered in these nail pens by Sally Hansen. I have lots of friends like me who tend to make a mess on their hands when they paint their nails so I am sure there are plenty of other women who struggle from the same problem and could really benefit from buying these nail polish pens by Sally Hansen. This is a great product and it really does make painting your nails easier and quicker.

Sally Hansen color quick fast dry nail color pen is so easy to use and dries in less than five minutes, all you have to do to use this nail color pen is shake the pen and apply. I even use these nail color pens for adding designs to my nails and get perfect polka-dots and lines every time.

Good concept, less than perfect execution

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

I understand that this was supposed to be a fast, mess free way to paint your nails if you are busy or on the go, and the idea behind it was good, but it only works so-so in reality. The pen doesn't contain very much polish so I don't find it lasts as long as a bottle, but it costs the same or more. I found that the tip got clogged / the brush got dry and gunky. The polish is of decent quality, no better or worse than the average bottled polish. Overall I just found it to be a more irritating way to paint my nails than the traditional method, which offers a wider range of colors and possibly a better value anyway.

Amazing product that really works.

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

This is an amazing product that really works. It is super easy to use and simple. I first began my search for a new nail polish application method when I messed up another manicure. I was trying out a new color and just couldn't get a hold of the handle. It kept slipping out of my hand and the brush was getting everywhere. There was nail polish all over my fingers. I finally got so tired that I decided to look for a new method. I went online and searched and there I came across an array of products. There were gel polishes, but I still had to polish that on. Not good for me. There were also the nail polish strips but, I they didn't work for me either. All of the strips were too big for my nails and when I cut them, they became too small. But, then I found this product. It was perfect. They brush on nail polish was perfect for my situation. It gave me more to grip so I could hold it better and applied very evenly. It also dried fast, a nice bonus for me.

Not a huge fan

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

These nail pens seem convenient, but when I used the nail pen, it was very watery. Maybe it's just me. I also didn't like that when I tried to use the black color, it wasn't solid black. I was getting a watery, translucent black. My design was messed up and I was not satisfied with the product.

Great for someone who doesn't paint their nails a lot.

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

I must first say that I do not paint my nails on a regular basis. As a busy, stay-at-home mom of two young boys, painting my nails is pretty low on my list of priorities; as are beauty products in general. When I've attempted painting my nails in the past, it always came out looking awful. I just don't have a lot of patience or practice with it.

Recently, my husband and I went away for our first "real" vacation without our sons and there was kind of a fancy to-do party while we were there, so I went shopping for cosmetics. I saw these pens on display and thought that I'd give it a try; especially since it seemed very portable.

It turned out to be very easy to use. No dripping nail polish. No "missing" the hole in the top of the jar and "mushing" the brush up. The pen is longer than a typical nail polish brush, and I found that it gave me better control while painting my nails.

I can see that the brush will eventually dry up, but I've had mine for two months now and it is still working fine.  From now on, this is what I'll buy. My youngest son has decided he likes Mommy's nails "colored", so I'm going to try to keep it up. :)

Love this stuff, so quick and easy!

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

I love the Sally Hansen nail pens!  They are so handy and easy to use.  I am always in a hurry so I find these very useful for myself and as an occasional treat for my little girl's nails.  The applicator brush is easy to hold compared to traditional brushes and with the cap it's also easier/safer for carrying around in a purse.  I like that you can push to get just enough polish on the brush and it glides on easily.  The polish itself seems to last about as long as traditional polishes.  I use two coats and am usually good for about a week on hands, longer on feet.  These brushes are so cute and affordable that I've taken to including them in gift baskets as well. Everyone from my fellow 30 something year old friends to my 8 year old niece have adored them.  For younger girls I think this is a great starter brush that makes getting color on just nails and not all over fingers easier than with a traditional brush.

With Sally Hansen Pens I can finally do my nails!

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

I have severe allergies and have migraine headaches, so I used to not be able to do my fingernails because of the odor. Not just the odor when applying the polish, but every time I'd bring my hands up to my face, the lingering odor would trigger either wheezing or a headache. I really hate this because I love fingernail polish. Finally, Sally Hansen's color quick fast dry nail color pen comes along and I thought, why not try it one more time. I'm so glad I did because this one brand does not give me any health troubles. I own several different colors now. I love the metallic shine that they have, but also the creamy colors are pretty as well. You do have to reapply every day or so if you do dishes manually like I do, but it's so easy it is really no big deal.

Good, fast color with no mess

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

Sally Hansen Color Quick Nail Color Pens are awesome! I have used them almost exclusively for the last year because the polish is so easy to apply and isn't nearly as messy as traditionally-packaged polish is. The bristles of the pen/brush give far better control when applying polish than traditional brushes with a bottle are, and application is much smoother as well. When using these pens for the first time, don't depress the canister for too long or you will have a lot of polish come out at once. The polish does dry quickly, which is a huge bonus.

The only drawbacks for these pens are that the polish isn't as thick as traditional polish, so you may need to do touchups more frequently with this product. Also, while there is good range of colors available, I wish they would add more. Some retailers offer more colors than others, but there isn't as much variety as the colors offered in traditional polish bottles.

this nail brush is so easy to use

Comments about Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen - All Shades:

  Oh Wow!  i just got this nail polish brush and for probably the first time ever I was able to polish my nails myself and in no time at all and I was actually impressed witht he results.  My nails have never looked so nice because it is wicked easy to apply without going off the area you are trying to polish and getting polish all over your fingers.  Which is what I have always ended up doing before.  It is so quick to dry that it is already done drying by the time you move on to the next finger to paint. I love it.  They also have some very pretty colors so I really appreciated that too.  If you don't have the extra time or the extra patience to wait for nail polish to dry you should absolutely get yourself one of the Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen.  It costs a little more than a traditional nail polish but trust me the extra cost is well worth it when you see how fabulous your nails look!
