This is like the easiest black french manicure that anyone can do , even a five years old . For this tutorial you only need a sharpie marker ( im using black you can use any other colors like gold , silver or bronze ) , a base coat, top coat and Hairspray
All you need to do is apply base coat on your nails , then color the tips of your nails wth sharpie marker . So far you have almost complete your french manicure, but one big problem using a sharpie to paint your nails is that the ink will tends to smudge after a day or when you apply your top coat . 
So to prevent smudging, spray some hair spray on your nails, then apply top coat . 

TADAA, that's it. This is really easy and you can do tons of stuff using this trick , as you can see above I also try doodles on my white based nails and it look great , This trick is definitely easier than drawing the doodle using black nail polishes . 

I know some people will worry that the sharpie will stain your nails, but it actually doesn't when you applied base coat first! 

what do you think about this tutorial ? have you tried using sharpie on your nails?

  1. That's such a fantastic idea! I love Sharpie pens, they're so easy to write with I've just never tried them on my nails!

  6. I tried before! I used the Zebra Double-Sided Marker, it's oil-based ink and does not smudge.
    This is a good tutorial btw, I always have hard time painting a nice French manicure. :B

  7. This is SUCH a good idea!
    I'm going to be giving this a try asap, normally nail art is too fiddly for me to do as my co ordination is appealing but I think I might just be able to do this :D
