Christmas Nail Art: Nails Supreme Plain Nail Art Kit*

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by Presents for Men (they don't just have presents for men!) to take part in their Festive Nail Art Challenge.  The challenge was to use their Nails Supreme Nail Art Kits to design some festive nails - so of course I said I would get involved!  For my final Christmas nails of the year, I used the plain kit (or at least I think that's what it is on the website).


There are 10 pens in the set and each has both a brush and a pen end to it.  Unlike a lot of other nail art pens I've come across, the brush isn't a striper, but a full brush - which means you can paint the whole nail with the polish first.



The pen end and the brush end

A couple of swatches of all 10 colours in the set:



For nail art pens (rather than what I would call 'proper polish') the polish is of a decent quality (though the yellow is, as most yellows are, a bit streaky to work with) - all the swatches above show two coats, which was certainly sufficient.  They painted on smoothly and dried pretty quickly.  I have to say, though, that I find the pen ends quite tricky to work with - usually I would use a striper brush for my nail art - so the more intricate designs were a bit of a challenge!  The polish had a tendency to blob out of the end (funnily enough most frequently with the reds), and some colours came out more vividly than others - the lighter ones didn't work so well on darker colours.  Overall, though, I thought they were fun and make a great addition to my collection - and I'm sure would be a fab gift for any budding nail art enthusiasts.



You can find these Nails Supreme Nail Art Kits on the Presents for Men website, priced at £19.99 each.

  2. Really cute! I like all of the designs you did except maybe the christmas tree - but only because the red hasn't shown up very well like you said :)
