I was so excited to try out these new Nuvo alcohol markers. Loved the price point and the packaging that included 3 colors in the same color family that worked for shading.
The colors are nice, the design of the pens is not! As a caveat, I have arthritis in my hands, that being said I am able to all my crafts without a problem. These pens are the exception! I cannot get the caps off without having special rubber grippers in both hands to wiggle/pry the lids off. The barrels are smooth and slick and the caps are pointy and difficult to get a grip on. To say I detest these pens is an understatement!
As I said, I ordered several sets of these pens and opened the packages before I discovered their fatal flaw. I've learned my lesson, and maybe I can save others from making the same mistake.
A nice selection of yellows, blends well, works great. The only drawback is that the caps are a bit of a struggle to get off, especially the little one on the bullet tip end. Tonic needs to redesign those. But sometimes I have problems getting caps off of other pen brands as well. All in all there very good, and I'm happy with them.
