Nail Art Pens are now a popular accessory in Britain, with sales of the designs up almost 50% in the past year, according to research by UK nail artist and illustrator Tara Brown.
The designs, made by Ms Brown’s partner Mark Wainwright, are meant to symbolise her own love of the nail art hobby and the way they represent her own work.
“It’s really easy to make and I can’t wait to show them off to my friends,” Ms Brown said.
“I love to show off these pens.
Ms Brown has created hundreds of nail art pens for her clients, and has found that people are willing to pay more for them. “
They’re so much fun and I love them so much.”
Ms Brown has created hundreds of nail art pens for her clients, and has found that people are willing to pay more for them.
“The people that buy the pens are happy,” she said.
She said customers were “very much into the fun and the simplicity”.
“They want a really good looking pen, they want something that looks beautiful and they want a pen that’s durable and durable and they’re happy with it.”
But some customers have questioned why they should pay more.
“A lot of people just say they’re looking for something cheap but they’re not really interested in looking at it and they just want the ink,” Ms Wainwork said.
Ms Wainwroof said her clients were often asked why they would pay more than $30 for a pen, and the answer was often “because I like it”.
She said people wanted to “do something with their nails and not necessarily with their hands”.
“I think people will pay whatever they need,” she added.
“If they want to spend a lot of money, that’s fine, but if they’re going to spend $30 on a pen and I’m going to make them happy with their pen and their art, then that’s what I do.”
