I usually paint my nails every couple of days, but I don't have the steadiest hand so I always end up going over the edges and making a mess on my fingers. I know a lot of nail bloggers tidy up with acetone and a small brush to get a neat edge but I'm lazy. I also hate nail polish remover, I hate the smell and the feel of it so tend not to use it. So when I heard Barry M were bringing out a corrector pen, I thought it would be perfect and had to try it (the only ones I had seen before were silly prices).
The corrector pen is basically just as it sounds, it is a pen tip coated in nail polish remover to allow quick and easy clean up of your nails. The pen is slanted giving an almost pointed tip on one side allowing you to get right upto the nail and clean the edges.
It doesn't smell so much like nail polish remover either, it has a slight melony scent which isn't awful. You also get two spare nibs in the cap meaning one the first nib gets too stained you don't have to replace the whole thing. I haven't tried changing it though so I'm not sure how easy it is to swap, but I can't imagine it being too difficult.
The corrector pen doesn't appear to be on the Boots website at the moment, but can be bought in store for £4.99, a bargain in my eyes and I can imagine I will get plenty of use out of it!
Have you tried a corrector pen before? If you hate nail polish remover like me then its perfect!
