7 year old Kenzie and I had a total blast experimenting with new products from Sally Hansen – especially this brand new Nail Art Pen. Ultra simple to use and definitely worth buying if you are interested in trying fancy trendy nail manicures from home. Even my 7 year old could master it with zero instruction from Mom. Awesome!
I admit that I am no manicurist and tend to find trying fancy “styles” on my nails difficult beyond a simple layer of colorful polish, but using a nail pen – that has a very skinny fine point that you can literally just DOT on your nails to be very easy. Here is Kenzie putting Aqua dots on my black nail polish.
You can see the pen has a very fine point so it is really easy to draw with!
DOTTING was the best strategy for Kenzie and I as far as creating a finer look as we found our stripes and lines to be a bit more difficult to apply, however with more practice I’m sure we could master it. The nail art pens are available at Walmart in a variety of shades – from aqua, to black to white.
Try black for fun spots and a cheetah nail pattern and use white to design flowers and stripes like Kenzie did here or even use it to create a quick easy manicure.
We also used Sally Hansens’s Insta Dry polish which literally dries in 60 seconds. We LOVE this polish and it is excellent for eager little girls who are anxious to get decorating.
Kenzie and I wanted to try a Monsters University Disney nail theme with Sulley and Mike – however, we need a bit more practice at the finer elements of nail art. Here is my attempt at a little Mike!
Check out Salley Hansen’s “I Heart Nail Art” contest where you can create your own nail art looks and share them via social media using the hashtag #IHeartNailArt. Even browsing these looks on social media via instagram or twitter using the hashtag is so much fun!
From February through June, Sally Hansen will choose 1 winner each month. Each winner will receive $500 and a trip to New York City to compete for the $2,000 grand prize and a chance to have their look featured on a display in Walmart. Each month, the contest will have a specific theme so you can get inspired to try various looks each month.

Kenzie started getting a bit overzealous in her application of the various nail art pens – however she is only 7 and was having a ball with it. I figure beauty is all about creativity!
