Sportsgirl I Art Nails! 3 in 1 DIY Nail Pen

August 27, 2012 Melbourne VIC, Australia

I had a coffee with my friend today, and we were near a Sportsgirl so we had to go in. I was so excited to see that there was something new and amazing in store - Sportsgirl now sell nail art pens! You can either get a pack that contains black and silver (which is what I bought), or a pack that contains fluro pink and orange (which is what my friend bought). Each of these come with nail polish, which can be used with the brush applicator to paint your whole nail or you can apply it with the pen to draw designs on your nails, and it also comes with diamontes of the same colour as the polish. Its hard to see in the photos above but the pink and orange pens come with pink and orange diamontes, but the back of diamontes are silver, which is why they look silver in the photo.

These retail at Sportsgirl for $12.95 for a pack of two colours, and each pen contains 5mL of polish. 

The packaging is cute, it has little pink designs on it, but the best thing about it is that it clearly explains how to use the pen - and even contains a diagram. I will use this as a nail art pen, and I will use the diamontes, but I am less inclined to use this as a nail polish purely because I have a lot of nail polish, and these are so fun that I won't want it to run out too quickly. It is great that they have that as an option though, I do understand that not everyone has a huge nail polish collection.

I can't wait to play with this more and do some awesome designs. The pen is really easy to use, the section that contains the polish is in a soft plastic so all you have to do is squeeze the sides to get the nail polish flowing through the pen. The harder you squeeze, the more that comes out, so its easy to control. The packaging also says that if this gets blocked, you just have to use a pin to unblock it.

This is the quick test I did while having a coffee with my friend, it was really fun and easy to use. I am sure you can do a lot of creative things with these pens, and I can't wait to have more time to sit down and start having fun with the diamontes.

Well done Sportsgirl for coming up with such a fun idea!


  1. OMG this looks soo awesome! Sportsgirl usually has pretty awesome stuff (especially around Christmas) but this has to be one of their best yet! I will definitely be checking these out :) Thanks for showing them!

  2. Oohh, this stuff is great! For people who want easy-to-apply nail art, this package is the perfect thing to use. I’m actually a nail art addict who uses various tools and decors, and I can say that my technique is pretty time-consuming. But with this, it’ll be easier to play around until you have achieved the perfect look for you.
