Friday Find ~ Sharpies for Manis!

Nail art is big right now and I found this idea on Pinterest and researched it further on The Beauty Department .  You can use Sharpies to create nail art! And it’s SO much easier than using polish or nail pens.  I particularly love that Sharpies now come in gold and silver…perfect for adding metallic touches to your nails.  Here are a few ideas from The Beauty Department….

Love, love, love the polka dots!!!

Who knew you could get your mani supplies at your local stationary store…in fact Staples carries a metallic three pack for $6.39 both online and in stores…less than a bottle of nail polish!

3-pack of permanent metallic Sharpies in gold, silver and bronze $6.39

This is the perfect way to get your nails spiffed up for New Years!  A few things to note…

    1. You can use it over your top coat.
    2. Make sure it’s completely dry (it takes a while) before you put another coat of top coat over the Sharpie design.


Berkeley created this chevron look for me..

Berkeley used the gold Sharpie over OPI’s “Tomorrow Never Dies”

Give it a try!
