Spring 2009: Love Clover Stick Pen Nail

I think I rarely posted about nail polishes... I have about 2489878978968976 different colors but most of the time go au natural as a) nail polishes don't last long on me and b) the whole procedure takes so long (filing, buffing, base coat, 2 coats color, top coat....wait wait wait till it's dry and I will still make a dent in at least 1 nail) it's not really worth it for the 2-3 days I'll enjoy my manicure.

The best nail polish I discovered so far is one from Paul & Joe in a fire-engine red. It stays shiny and doesn't chip for like a week so it's perfect for me (way better than any of my OPI nail polishes!). However I am not always in the mood for super bright nail polish so I don't wear it that often. I think I should give a try to other P&J nail colors to see if they perform just as well.

Anyways, Love Clover came out with an interesting little item which is a nail polish in a pen with a button on the bottom so you just push to get the color flowing out.
I thought this looked cool so I decided to pick out 2 of the available colors.

The Stick Pen Nail looks cute with its pretty ornaments printed on and it does work decently.
The brush is a little stiff and the nail polish is rather liquid (probably needs to be to flow out well).

There are a few things I don't like about this item though:
-The pen only contains 4ml so it will be used up quickly
-One of the colors (the Strawberry Pink #04) is super sheer so even 2 coats look uneven. Besides that I hate the color as it's a super bright neon text liner pink, bleh!
-The other color I have Nude Beige #02 goes on a little streaky but otherwise it's the perfect easy-care pink-beige perfect for French Manicures etc.

The good:
-Dries quickly
-nice high shine without any bubble even with 2-3 coats
-color lasts well for several days.

How to use: Shake well, push the button until color flows and apply.

I paid US$16/each from ichibankao. Retail is 987 JPY.
