I'm sure many have thought of it before - why not draw on your nails with a Sharpie marker? I have tried and here is what I found out:
- It bleeds and smudges when you put a topcoat over it pretty badly.
- It rubs off almost easily - don't even think about washing your hands without a topcoat!
- Wears off the edges pretty much instantly (I had to do a few touch ups for the photo, even)
- A basecoat is a must, because I'm sure they will stain your nails if touching them directly.
If you can get past this - and I have, Sharpies are pretty fun and easy way to sometimes do precise black lines and drawings on your nails. I really want to try this again, but maybe without making the tips black because the need too much maintenance. The base polish for this mani is Illamasqua Load.
Have you ever tried using Sharpies/other unorthodox materials on your nails?
