I was perusing the aisles in Superdrug the other day when I came across a new product from Barry M, a Nail Paint Corrector Pen. Now, I know there are already a few of these on the market, the most popular one by Nails Inc, but Barry M's version came with a much better price tag of £4.99.
As the title suggests, you use this pen to tidy up nails after they've been freshly painted. Although I've been painting my nails for years, I often end up with a splatter here or there on my nails and while it would be just as easy to dip a cotton bud (q-tip) in nail varnish remover, I find that the bud isn't as precise. With the Barry M pen however, touch ups are a lot easier with the pointed nib allowing you to get into all the nooks and crannies. The product itself is supposed to be melon scents, however I haven't really noticed that at all. It's also acetone free and comes with two spare nibs to swap out as and when they dry out. I know with Nails Inc pen, a lot of the problems came from the product drying up quite quickly, and whilst I've only been using it for two or so weeks, if the Barry M pen dried up quickly I wouldn't be as annoyed.
Some might think it's a waste of money, but if you're forever changing your nail colour as often as I do then this might be a nice little beauty accessory to have. I hear they are already hard to get hold of, so it's proving to be a popular product.
Will you be trying this out or sticking to good old bottled remover?
