Fab Sharpie Manicures:

Our Faves:
We especially love the nail art designs created using the metallic Sharpie markers in gold, silver and bronze. They are also easier to use than the nail art brush. You can find them at your local office supplies or art and crafts store.

Fab Sharpie Mani Tips:
  1. Never apply your permanent Sharpie marker to your bare nails. For French manicures use a clear base coat.
  2. Allow your first coat to dry properly before applying your Sharpie marker.
  3. If you make a mistake while drawing your design, use rubbing alcohol to clean it up without ruining your nail polish.
  4. To prevent your sharpie marker design from smudging, lightly apply hair spray as soon as you are done drawing it on.
  5. Let your Sharpie marker design dry properly before applying your clear nail polish top coat, this will also prevent smudging.
