New Sally Hansen Nail Products! ~ Review

 I had some extra care bucks to spend at CVS - reward cash for spending a certain amount at the store over the last quarter - so I thought I'd go and take a look.

At the front of the store there were a bunch of displays set up with new products, including a bunch of new nail polishes, nail art kits, glitter, nail beads, all sorts of exciting nail paraphernalia! I'm a sucker for fancy pretty nail thingies.

Two of the new products caught my eye:
Sally Hansen ~ Nail Art Tool Kit - $6.99
Sally Hansen ~ Big Matte Top Coat - $5.99

Included in the nail tool kit were two brushes - a super small precision detailer brush and a long striping brush, a marbling/dotting tool with two sizes on either side and a sheet of stencils.

I love little kits like this and I have wanted to own something similar for awhile now. I love nail art but I'm not particularly good at it just yet, and I had been using my paint brushes which just weren't cut out for the job.

I had a little play with the kit this evening and I am really quite pleased. The stencils work just as well as any stencil I've ever tried - which is to say, not particularly well... They never seem to stick quite right, but I was able to work around that. The detailer brush is awesome. Both it and the striping brush are stiff enough that they don't fold, flatten or separate too much and they keep the polish neat and tidy. The dotting tool is pretty neat too. I used the smaller of the two sizes, but I think it'll take me some more practice to get them looking perfect.

I then used the top coat over the art. The matte effect shows up once the top coat is dry. I used quite shiny pink and purple polish underneath and it worked perfectly. I suspect it might rub off a little easily, I found that I had a few patches after the first coat so I added another. I love it though, I'll definitely be using this a lot.

So, if you're into nail art like me, and you have access to these products I would recommend picking them up! They are easy to use and a lot of fun, definitely worth the money in my opinion.

What's your favourite nail product? I'd love some recommendations.
