As we tap away at our keyboards all day long, the poor, past it pen sits in its pot, neglected. Sometimes we grab it to scrawl down a number, but a fair few of us haven’t put a pen to good use in quite some time. I suggest you change all that and pick up a Leighton Denny Colour & Go Cocktail Manicure Pen sharpish. It’s sleek, nifty and not a bit passé - in fact, it’s pretty forward looking when it comes to achieving a glossy mani in double quick time.

Leave clunky bottles at home and simply use this when deskside, poolside, or indeed, anywhere at all. The no-faff 'pen' combines a rich, intense colour at one end with a lighter, complementary shade at the other. The slim applicator brush makes accuracy and precision plain sailing, and the polish dries quickly to leave a smooth, mirror like finish. It’s the perfect lunch break plaything, and the colourways are particularly fun. Make your paint job as painless as possible by spending your pocket money on a few of these mani marvels.
