[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I was all for having a practical product day until a reader dropped a request for cashmere bargains so that’s coming up next. But to start with, if you love to do your own mani (which I do) a nail corrector pen is the difference between good enough and perfection. Personally, I like perfection – I take it off if it doesn’t sit within certain parameters which aren’t as rigorous as a professional mani but if there’s something wrong, it niggles till I start over.
The premise is simple – rigid, angled tips that are soaked with remover (you just add a new nib and it draws up remover from the barrel so it soaks on its own) which you can then remove overspills. If I go over onto the cuticle part which is probably my most common nail blooper, it’s really very quick and easy to swipe across and pick up the excess. Again, it’s a good tool form when you spill out into the crevice between the nail and finger – because the head has a fine angle tip, you can winkle in there perhaps not perfectly, but enough to make amends.
The little extra tips slot neatly into a lid that fixes on the bottom. So, while it’s not a magic wand, it is very handy for bloopers …. and it’s more accurate than using cotton buds unless you have the very fine point options which aren’t easy to get hold of. The pen is £13 HERE, non-affiliate HERE.
