Easy nail art with markers!

Quick post today with a not so great photo, my hands look weird & this was the only photo that was not blurry lol

Here is a quick example of how you can use your permanent markers/sharpies to decorate your nails. I normally use an actual nail pen or the polish but I could not get the purple nail polish to work very well, it was just too inconsistent. My 8 year old thought of using the markers and I was amazed they worked so well. If you let them dry enough the clear top coat goes on smoothly but I did notice that if you put too much topcoat on it bleeds a little so, do some test runs to see what works for you. :)

The patterns I drew on my nails were for fun and testing, I am sure you can be more creative than me lol Make sure you do a few coats of your normal  nail polish before applying the permanent markers, you do not want them to stain your actual nails. I think you could achieve some creative fashion looks and its so easy!! My thumbnail I did checkered, I wish you could see it in this photo, it's pretty awesome haha
