Pros: Easy to use
Contains Aloe and Vitamin E
Nails Look Healthy
I love the look of a French manicure. Who doesn’t? However, due to my chemical sensitivities, I hesitate to use any type of nail polish or visit a nail salon.
I have found by using Sally Hansen’s 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil, I can achieve a faux French manicure without the cost nor upper respiratory symptoms.
Sally Hansen 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil is a white pencil, similar to a lead pencil. However, the tip of the pencil is a white, chalky substance instead of lead.
The white tip has to be sharpened just as a lead pencil. I do not know the exact length of the pencil when new, for I have sharpened the pencil many times.
The pencil has a white pull off plastic cap. Two sides of the cap are slanted and may be used as a cuticle pusher.
To use, the pencil tip must be moistened with water to soften and then applied under the nail tips. This nail pencil is not made to provide a French manicure, but to give your nails a clean look. Sally Hansen does make another product, a 5 Minute Manicure White Tip Pen, which is painted onto the top of the nails to provide an actual French manicure.
The Sally Hansen 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil is infused with Aloe and Vitamin E. It is salon and dermatologist tested.
Before I use the pencil, I make sure my nails are clean and free from dirt. I moisten the white tip of the pencil to soften enough to color the underside of my nails. If too much water is used, the white color runs onto the fingertips, but is easy to remove.
Because my nails are not discolored, using the Sally Hansen 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil along with buffing to a shine with a nail buffer, provides the effect of a French manicure for which I have received compliments.
By using Sally Hansen 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil, I never have to worry about the tips of my nail polish chipping, for the color is applied under the nail. Besides, the price is right!
I paid approximately $3.00 for the Sally Hansen 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil.
This 0.3 oz. nail pencil is made in Czech Republic.
