Hot Designs Nail Art
The Pea loves nail art.  She's constantly designing and painting all kinds of cool things onto her (and my) nails!  She's always on the lookout for new colors and new tools to help her create her nail art, and I'm only too happy to support her in her artistic endeavors.  We were at Hamley's Toy Store in London last month, and we saw the most awesome nail art tool:  a set of nail polish bottles that had a brush for applying polish and a fine applicator tip for drawing!  We were amazed at how easily we could use it to create fine nail art designs -- but the set cost £25 for 6 bottles!  Ouch!  I told The Pea we could probably find something similar for far less cost in the US -- and I was right.  Just a few weeks after our trip to Hamleys, we discovered Hot Nail Designs Nail Art, which has the exact same concept -- a brush for polish and a tip for drawing -- and it costs just $14.99 for a set of 8!  They are shaped like pens (which makes them even easier to handle), and The Pea has been able to create some amazing designs with them.  I can't recommend them enough!

The Basics
Create hot, fun and unique designs on your nails right at home with Hot Designs™ nail art pens! These specially formulated nail art pens allow you to create a base color and then apply unique, precision designs for a modern and stylish look on your nails! Use Hot Designs™ nail art pens to create unique designs including dots, stripes, rainbows or whatever else you may desire! Each kit comes with a Design Guide including great styles to try at home, or feel free to get creative and make unique designs on your own! It's fun to use, easy to remove and it will make your nails look better than ever!

The Bongga
These pens are AMAZING!!! We love them! Check out all the intricate designs that The Pea was able to paint onto my nails!

My left hand is full of designs featured on the instruction booklet. The step-by-step instructions for each design are super easy to follow, and it's easy to take inspiration from those designs and make your own (like the strawberry on my thumb).  I think the floral design on my pinkie finger is probably the best, most professional-quality nail The Pea has ever done.

On my right hand, The Pea painted some of her favorite cartoon characters.  Thanks to the Hot Designs precision tip, she was able to outline all the facial features on Hello Kitty, Totoro, Mike Wazowski, a Minion and an Angry Bird!
Hot Designs Nail Art
It takes a bit of practice to get a nice, thin flow of nail polish, but Hot Designs really makes things as easy as possible.  Here are five more things I love about the Hot Designs Nail Art Pens kit:

1)  The kit comes with an instruction booklet filled with lots of ideas and tips.
2)  The instruction booklet has "practice space", i.e. blank nail outlines right next to the sample illustrated nail designs, so you can practice painting the design.
3)  The kit comes with 2 fine precision tip cleaners, so you can make sure your precision tips never get clogged.
4)  The applicator pens made of soft plastic, so it is easy to apply a gentle, even pressure and get a thin, even stream of polish.
5)  The nail polish itself seems to be thinner than regular nail polish, so it is easy to make very fine lines, dots, swirls, and designs.

The Blah
It is difficult to get a smooth, even coat, so I don't recommend using it to cover large areas.  Probably this is because (like I mentioned earlier) the nail polish seems to be a bit thin, and the brush itself seems a bit thick .  I highly recommend using your own regular nail polish for the base coat, and save the Hot Designs Nail Art pens for what they do best -- drawing fine lines and designs with the precision tip!

The Bottom Line
Hot Designs Nail Art Pens are an easy, fun, inexpensive way to create beautiful nail art designs

I like the angry birds and the lady bug. Ive tried nail art before and it was an epic fail. My girls are good at it though and the polish being in a pen form should help too.
