The Bottom Line: As a busy mom, I find this product very useful, and recommend it.
As a busy mom, I am lucky if I have time to take a shower, let alone time to paint my nails. A quick and inexpensive solution is using Sally Hansens 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil which does a wonderful job of temporarily whitening my nail tips.

The pencil is designed to do two things. First, the angled and pointed cap to the pencil can be used to push back cuticles. I have also used the point to scrape out dirt from under my fingernails. Second, the pencil can be used to put a temporary white coating on the underside of fingernails.
To use as a whitener, I lightly moisten the pencil tip and run it gently under my nail tips. There is no drying time needed and the pencil is odor free. I have found that it works best if the tip is fairly sharp and pointed. The pencil can be sharpened with the typical make up sharpening pencils. If the tip is not pointed, the pencil will leave white marks on my skin, near the nail. The white marks are easily wiped away with a slightly damp cloth. I have also learned not to moisten the pencil too much or it will be mushy and also messy.
I have used this product for about 6 months. I have not had any issues of staining. One application in the morning will generally last me through one day. The more I wash my hands, the lighter the pencil marks are. I try to use Purell when I have this product on to make it last longer. If you want to remove the product immediately, then using a small nail scrub brush with lots of soap and water will do the trick.
I found this pencil at Target and paid $2.99 for a .3 oz. size. There were several pencils to choose from, but I chose Sally Hansens for I have been happy with several of her other products.
Sally Hansens 2 in 1 Nail White Pencil takes only a few minutes to apply, but it makes quite a difference in the appearance of my nails. They look healthy and well cared for. I am happy to recommend, but please keep in mind that the results typically do not last for more than one day.
