Nail candy pens in green and pink and with nail gems

Hey hey all,
So, as you can see from my lack of posts in the last little bit, summer has been keeping me a bit busy. But, that has not stopped me from always having my nails done and always taking pictures so I can share them on here:) I have so many things just waiting for the finishing touches needed:) I do , however have something today that I am excited to share with you guys:)
A while ago, I was lucky enough to be given the chance to win some of the "nail candy pens" from their Facebook page and I would like to share with you guys what I did with them and what I think of them:) So, basically, what I am talking about are some nail pens, that are double ended, with a different color on each side that has two different types of applications. You can use them to paint your nails with a normal brush or, what I did, they have a thin, small tip that is used to draw and design things on your nails really easily. And another pen has the same tip but one end has nail gems for your nails and the other side clear polish, so it makes it easy to apply them. Let me show you what I am talking about because I am sure my explanation is not the best and perhaps confussing.....

SO here are the two pens. As I said, one has polish and one has nail gems and clear polish to apply them on.
And whereas you can use them to paint your nails, I would recommend saving them to do nail art with and use other poish to paint your nails first.

And as you can see in this picture, taken from Nail Candy pen's facebook page,  they also have this micro tip which makes drawing on your nails easy.

So, for someone like me, who is artistically challenged when it comes to drawing and therefore nail art, these pens are great for me!! Unlike striper polishes, I find these much easier to control, especially when drawing lines. They are also not as goopy and thick. So, as I said, I first put on another polish, which was Essie "In the cab-ana", a gorgeous , light baby blue. And , as I also said, I am the first to admit it, I suck at nail art. So by no means do my designs speak for the type of art and quality that you can do with these pens. I can only imagine what people who Can draw are able to create with these. This is just what I was able to do with my capabilities. I just had fun with it, which is what, well to me, matters. SO, let's have a look:)

I just let my imagination go wild, so to speak, and just went with it. Can you guess what is what...?

Well, from left to right, we have, a dragon fly, flowers, a happy face and dots:)

I LOVE the pen with the gems. The micro tips makes it so much easier to add the nail gems than when you are using a normal sized brush with clear polish or a top coat, whatever you use to stick your gems. With these, you can do them one by one, therefore taking away the worry of the polish drying on you and you don't have to guess how big or small you will need to apply. The middle of the flowers are gems from the pen and the others are some I had myself. Obviously, it works with any.

HEHEHEHEHE:) I just LOVE this little happy face. I used fimo slices for the eyes, so as you can see, the clear sided tip can be used to stick almost anything to your nails:)

Now, I don't know why but, I can never do proper circles with my dotting tool:( I have tried and tried but they never come out fully or the size I want. With these, making dots was so easy for me. I have never made this many dots on my nails and have it look good. I am sure I can make them bigger if I wanted. I love they way this turned out!!!

So, there we have it. I think these pens are so fun and want some in every color:) The possibilities are endless. What do you guys think of my designs??? I know they are a bit on the cheesy side because it looks like a kid did some of it, lol, but as I said I had fun with it:)
What do you guys think of these? Think you would like them to do nail art with? Do you think they look easier then striper polishes?

For more information on these, you can check out their Facebook page to see a whole bunch of pictures and/or you can go straight to their website and buy directly from there, where prices range from 8-10$ each. They come in a lot of colors!!!
