Sharpie Watercolor Nail Art

Rainbow Galaxy? Easter eggs? Tie-dye? Regardless, Just a touch of sharpie and rubbing alcohol to get the job done! And of course some glitter for a much needed sparkle. Starting with a white base color i carefully diluted many different sharpie colors onto my color palette and then painted them onto my nails. The rubbing alcohol that I used to dilute the sharpie helped the sharpie mixture dry fairly fast when applied to my nails. After the glitter was applied I sealed the deal with two top coats. I will definitely be exploring this method with more colors, so fun and easy!

Crayon Nail Art

This week I decided to paint by fingernails as crayons. Each set of fingers, when put together, forms the entirety of a crayon. I choose these five colors from looking at my extensive crayon set of 96 colors. I ended up using salmon, red violet, sea green, dandelion, and sky blue as my subjects. They certainly are the perfect manicure for finals week!

Opposites Attract? Nail Art

This week I painted all ten of my fingernails a different color and then I used acrylic paint to draw on lines that corresponded to the opposite color of the nail polish that I had used. I then added some sparkle with a Essie flakie nail polish to give this manicure a little more shine. The end result looks very modern, which is something that my nails aren't usually accustomed to.
