For a bold base hue, grab a polish from the Birchbox and Color Club Custom Collection.

Color Club®

Birchbox Breakdown

When it comes to picking a favorite pattern, we’re torn between stripes, florals, and animal print—and that’s just on our nails. Each of these three pens (two timeless neutrals and a perfect-for-spring pastel) has two tips, tailored to different-sized designs. Stripes, swoops, chevrons, dots, flowers, animal prints: Whatever on-trend pattern we’re after, these tools make every look easy to apply.

How it Works

Think of these tools as both palette and paintbrushes: Each one contains both high-quality lacquer and two ways to put polish precisely where you want it. The slender brush swipes on stripes and lines of color, while the pen-point tip is ideal for dotting on more precise details.

How to Use

To access the skinny brush, simply twist off the cap as you would with any nail polish. To access the pen-style tip, pull off the cap like you’re uncapping a marker. After applying a base coat and at least two coats of a solid color (waiting after each coat so it can dry), get creative: Use the skinny brushes to apply stripes, lines, and chevrons, and the pen tips for dots, flowers, and other miniature motifs. Finish with a top coat.

This is a cool nail polish. I don't usually decorate my nails with different patterns and such, but this product definitely got me into it!

This was a wonderful product! I loved being able to have the pin point precision the lid made possible. I've loved the different patterns I've been able to make!

Cool but not my thing

This is a really cool product, I am just not into nail art. Both tips work really well and it's easy to use.

I got Purple
Sampled

So I received he purple nail pen in my box. I hate this color but my friend loved it so I gave it to her and she said it did work well. I personally do not like it, so that is why I gave it one star.

Easy to use
Sampled

In my monthly Birchbox I received the white duo pen polish. I found it fairly easy to use and even let friends borrow it. It did however after extended use become thick and harder to use as effectively. The only thing I would have liked more was if I received the black instead of the white. Besides that, I would recommend it.

LOVE IT

For someone with an unsteady hand, this is the perfect pen and brush for a simple design! I use it over my regular nail polish or over my gel manicure. Top coat and you're all set!

Has potential
Sampled

I sampled the black paint, which has great potential for fun nail art... just not for my conservative job. I tested out the fine point pen portion, and it went well until the paint became watery. I needed to keep shaking and writing on paper to get rid of the water. Could take some more practice, but not exactly for me.
