What a horrible formula. Essence's French Manicure Pen had potential, the little tip is awesome for applying fine lines and I'm sure it could be used for nail art as well. However, the wear is inexcusably bad - it literally rubs and washes right off. Wat. I tossed this pen right out. I would not repurchase this nail polish pen, nor do I recommend it, unless you want to just play around and practice nail art designs with it. Also, I've come to the realisation that French manicures really aren't my style.
