I've had my Sally Hansen Color Quick pen for quite a while. I bought it last year, used it once, and promptly shoved it in a drawer when it leaked on one of my favorite shirts and stained it. Granted, I probably shouldn't have been trying to paint my nails in the car (no I wasn't the one driving) but still, that was my shirt yo. MY SHIRT! Sadly I loved the color I got, I just wasn't skilled enough to handle the pen delivery system apparently. Thus it sat unloved in my bathroom until last week when I saw Kat use one for stamping. Check it out!

I love this color combination but man Flying Dragon is a weird polish. It says it's a neon but the only thing neon I found about it was that it dried matte. That said it is great for stamping over because of the super fast matte drying time. It's not very bright like you would expect a neon to be but I do like the berry shade it gives. The bottle color is gorgeous with shimmer and small round blue glitters but sadly I didn't get much of that on the nail. You can see it pretty well in the macro shot but in person it was hardly noticeable which was disappointing. Oh well, I can't complain cause it was free since there was a buy two get one free sale at Sally's when I got it. Still a great color for all sorts of things, just not what I would consider very neon. Also, yay dark polish and it's not all up in mah cuticles! Oh pure acetone, let's be friends forever.
I'm glad I found a use for my Sally Hansen pen, it didn't deserve to be neglected because of user error. These things really are great for stamping and probably for use as intended if you're not a spaz like me. I may go get some in a few more colors now. Have you guys ever rediscovered something you thought you didn't like?
