Permanent Marker Nail Art
I was so looking forward to trying this mani, but now it's finished I don't like it! Happy Saturday everyone it's been a busy morning here but I eventually got time to do my nails. After seeing several pictures on Facebook and Google of sharpie pen granite look nails, I wanted to have a go myself as they look so easy to do. The only difference is I haven't any Sharpie Pens, only cheaper ones from my local pound shop.
So I applied a white gel base and tried with blue, purple and black permanent markers.
For starters I didn't find it easy as it looks, but was happy with the patterns that were appearing on my nails. Secondly when I was really happy with the final look, my pens didn't dry completely. I carried on and applied a gel topcoat and when I was wiping the tacky residue off, some of the pen came off too :( it looks like the topcoat shrunk the design.
Have a great weekend and stay safe and much love....
What?? I absolutely love it!! I would love to see your results if you get actual Sharpies! I'm sure it will be equally as beautiful :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Megan, I will try again as I don't let anything beat me lol xDelete
I adore this! Yes, there is a teeeny bit of space around the edge, but that just highlights the design! I think this came out so good. :)ReplyDelete
I don't think it's a fail at all. I quite like it!!ReplyDelete
Thank you :)Delete
I think you're being a bit too critical on yourself, but I am the same way - I think we all are :D I adore these, they remind me of a lovely pond - I can see orange koi swimming around in them ^_^ReplyDelete

They look awesome to me! I think you're just being hard on yourself hun. Have you tried highlighters btw? Lisa @lala_lacquer recently had success with this. She also doesn't have sharpies. Hmm neither do I! I would love to try this method soon. Cheers, Silvie aka @cheekynailmonkey.ReplyDelete
