Sharpie Scales

 Sharpie Metallic Marker - £6.99 Pack of 3 ( Bronze , Silver, Gold)

Whilst writing up some gift tags with my new metallic Sharpies ( by the way , they're a dreammm for christmas tags) , I remembered when I did a sugar Skull nail tutorial using the Glam 80's Sharpies. I wondered if these would have the same effect when used on nail polish - and they definitely do. I simply drew the mermaidy scale design over my already painted nails - which were 2 coats of Models Own Black Magic. I then used Sally Hansen Insta- Dri Topcoat to seal , and added on gold studs near the cuticles. This was just a quick idea that turned into nails that I  really love! If you're after easy festive nail art, you could definitely use a Gold or Silver Sharpie over White or Black nail polish to draw snowflakes or other cute Christmassy stuff!?!? Also I have to say I'm pretty proud of my water photo... Its inspired me to try out some different ideas too!!  What do you think of this design? Have you used Sharpies for nail art? 

P.S less than 2 days til' Christmas- eeeeeeek!!  Wishing all my readers a Merry Christmas & don't forget to enter my Giveaway ending New Years Eve.
