Manicure Must Have: Essie Corrector Pen

I'll admit it, I'm absolutely terrible at applying my own nail polish. I just can't seem to keep the polish confined to the nails when painting them. The color goes all over the sides and the bottom of the cuticle, and the final result always looks like I got a manicure from a four year old.

In the past, I've relied upon dipping a Q-tip in nail polish remover to clean up the edges, but I discovered something new the other day at my local Ulta store, The Corrector Pen by Essie, ($14). Built like a fine-tip marker, this awesome tool has a firm rounded tip that delivers a steady amount of polish remover so you can get deep into the edges around your nails without removing the polish on the nail itself. It's sold at most manicure salons that sell Essie products and also at Ulta stores, but for some reason it's not available online at You can, however, order it at if you don't have an Ulta or a manicure salon near you that carries Essie.

And while you're at it, give Essie's new nail polish Damsel in a Dress ($8) a try. The color looks good on nearly everyone and perfectly complements fall looks.


  1. I totally do the q-tip dipped in nailpolish thing...except then I end up taking off half of my work. Its about time something like this was created1

  2. Good Content.

    Today while I was surfing the Internet, I came across several interesting articles talking about UV nail lamps and how to use
    them with gel nail application. I also happened to visit this site Gel-Nails and found amazing variety of pedicure kit which
    I think is really cool. And what’s best above all is the super discount that you can get which is 50% and more also for most
    of the products.

    I guess this is a great offer to grab as there is free global shipping also over a minimum purchase order. So if you are
    looking out to save money after having spent on gel nails, then check out the great offers here. Maybe you may find much more
    than what you are looking for as I did.
