I beg to differ.
With properly sifted henna, the bottles do not clog any more than any
other tool. And with practice, you will be able to use a bottle for
hours without any hand discomfort. I have been using bottles for
almost 3 years, and i am still very able to use a variety of tools
including a cone, carrot bag, syringe, etc. And i bet that in the
long run the bottles are more cost effective... i've had the same
five or so bottles hanging around for 3 years and the same 10 tips,
which will never need to be replaced so long as i don't damage them

: Although many people here use them for gorgeous results, I'd say
: stick with a bag or cone. The bottles clog easily, they hurt to
: for any period of time, and once you get used to them, it's harder
: use anything else. Cones (whether plastic, like carrot bags, or
: mylar rolled cones) are easy to learn to use, comfortable, cheap to
: make so you can have an applicator anytime, and if you have a clog,
: you pinch the tip and the clog comes spooting right out. In
: addition, the mylar are very easy to learn to use and give
: precise and fine results almost immediately. And you can make or
: them in all kinds of cool colors :)
