Heard recently - somewhere- about nails pens, like felt pens but with nail varnish for neater appplication. Askied ion Boots today ( could not see on any of the mainstream cosmetics brands) and a hmm repsonse from a uninterested sales person, did I just dream it, or do i need to go to Selfridges/Harvey Nicks?

No, I'm sure that there were nail varnish pens but quite a long time ago. Perhaps they didn't catch on?

Ha- just answered my own question by googling blush sorry - MN my default port of call, should have thought to google first. Just bought on Amazon with one click....

Not heard of them but sounds like a great idea.

I remember them. I think a few brands bought them out (maybe YSL?) but I don't think they really caught on. Might have been a few years ago?

There is a set by YSL for french manicures, quite expensive and I haven't tried it as it never had very good reviews as far as I have read. They do nail varnish pens in USA where I got one but to be honest although it is easy to put on it doesn't last two seconds. Chips straight away.

These are the ones that launched last year:

Not sure what they are like, but remember they got lots of press at the time.
