Happy Mani Monday, nail art lovers. #TIFF14 is around the corner so we’re rather busy. But there’s no excuse for chipped, nasty ass nails.
We’ve got a great #nailart hack for you. Two words: Sharpie marker.
Paint on your favourite base colour, then draw on a design with your fave Sharpie. We recommend tracking down the silver and gold metallic ones, they create an especially cool metal, holographic look. But they’ll all work so if you want to paint a pale base and design away in colour, go for it.
They draw fabulous lines, make great dots, smiley faces, letters, the name of your film title, whatever strikes you at 2:00 am when you’re getting your at home manicure on. Get creative and have fun with it.
Tips: Skip the black Sharpie, it comes out as a weird dark blue colour. And be sure to put a healthy dose of topcoat over the marker once it’s had a few minutes to dry up. If you don’t, it’ll wipe off because the varnish underneath is so smooth.
We want everyone on our level for TIFF. Slightly mean, sharp and fabulous. Get it? Do you?
Happy ultra fast nail arting!
