LAQA & Co. Nail Polish Pen

According to the Beatles, “All you need is love”—but when it comes to nail art, we say, “All you need is LAQA & CO.’s super handy Nail Polish Pen.” This lacquer-filled nail tool makes nail designs easy and fun to create and is great for on-the-go touchups. Better yet, each on-trend polish eschews toxic ingredients like formaldehyde, toluene, and DHP.

A little too much
Purchased

This isn't really a nail polish pencil.I wanted something to use for nail art and this was more like a polish "wand" or something. it's a nice way to easily apply polish, but it's really too thick ( the applicator that is) for nail art. Great color!

Nice and easy
Purchased

I was thinking this would be a dotter, not a brush. However, this is WAY better than the last nail brush pen I used. The color is so fun! Glad I live in Florida where we can wear summer colors practically year round because this shade screams "Popsicles and surfboards " - love it!

Good concept, but doesn't deliver
Purchased

I really wanted to like this nail polish pen, but it just doesn't work like a real polish. Even if you only lightly push the button a lot of polish comes out making it very difficult to apply even light coats. Not worth $13 or even $5 for that matter.

Kind of a pain
Purchased

Much more fuschia than the color dot on the shade selection implies. Once the pump is depressed it takes 2 minutes to come back up for another pump, so the nail polish starts to dry unevenly and gets tacky on the brush. Maybe mine is defective? Pump also takes a bit of strength to depress. The brush is not as thin as I had hoped. Overall not really an improvement over a standard bottle of polish.

The pen is easy to hold and makes application easy, and the polish itself is of good quality. After I sloooooowly use up the polish I may dip the pen in bottle polishes to use as a brush.

RED

The color itself is beautiful however It was a little different to use and clogged after the first use. Easy to fix but kind of unfortunate.

not great
Purchased

I hate giving this a bad review because I LOVE LAQA &Co lipstick, but the nailpolish dries strangely and i have to put super shiny top coats just to make it look remotely attractive. It globs up. i don't know, i had such high hopes because i wanted to be able to throw they in my bag to do my manis on the go, but that just didn't happen.

Eh

I thought the top coat was going to be white, since that is the color bubble I clicked on... Guess I should have paid more attention.

Good idea but hard to use
Purchased

While I like the concept of a nail polish pen, and thought that the texture and consistency of the product was pretty good, it was a little too difficult to use over a regular nail polish brush. It probably takes some practice but I don't think I'll use it frequently.

Top Coat Pen
Purchased

I'm trying to find a good topcoat and I love the idea of a pen so that the topcoat doesn't take on the under polish and create a tint towards the end, but this is NOT a good top coat. I have LAQA nail polish and that dried faster than this top coat. The topcoat is still tacky after 30 minutes and after an hour, I can make a thumbprint in it. It's not advertised as fast drying but... this is a little silly.

Additionally, there is no "squeezing" to the top coat (I don't know about the colors) but it's a clicker at the top. Which is actually nicer to me, controls how much is used, but for the small amount that came out (it comes fast, watch out! Hover over the nail when you click it!), the fact it doesn't dry is just impractical for a top coat.
