Rainbow Glitter Nails

Hello everyone, today's mani is something I've been wanting to try since I watch a video on Youtube by Simply Nailogical. The only trouble was I didnt have any Sharpie Pens, and the only ones I had were some cheapy permanent markers from my local pound shop. So I thought I'd try anyway. 
I started with a peel off base and then applied 2 coats of a silver holographic polish that I mixed together with 2 old polishes. 

This peel off base from Miss Sporty is my favourite,  dries quickly and peels off in one piece. These 2 polishes were almost empty so I mixed them :)

I totally forgot to take a photo of my silver holo base, as I was so in grossed with doing this mani!! 
Anyway as it turned out, although colourful,  2 of the permanent markers looked to dark on the finished result. The topcoat help bring them together a bit more, but I wasn't happy with it.

I know it somewhat defeated the object of applying a holo base, but I ended up adding a holo topcoat to dull the colours slightly. I'm liking this look much better. I also walked to the shops in the rain just to buy some highlighter pens to try this again!!

It's such a clever and easy mani to do, thank you to Simply Nailogical for sharing her wonderful nails.
Stay safe and much love....


  1. This turned out great! I bought a huge pack of sharpies to do some sharpie manis and just haven't felt very adventurous yet. :)

    1. Thank you and yes I know how you feel :)

  2. I keep wanting to pick up some sharpies so I can try to do some of these manis I keep seeing. I think yours turned out good and topping it with more holo is always a win :)

  3. I like this look with and without the top coat!

  4. I have Simply Naillogical's mani saved in my "nail art to try" list. I have Sharpies but not Sharpie Highlighters which are more translucent. Need to get some.
