Items used for Sharpie Nails:

  • Butter London Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat

  • Iso-Propyl Alcohol 99.9% Pure
  • Fraulein Nail Art Brush
  • INM Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat Silver

Jin Soon Doux is from the Tila March Collection. It is a gorgeous light powder pink white polish with great streak free coverage. One coat was applied as a base colour before applying Sharpie Permanent Markers. Two coats would give a fully opaque coverage. This 5 free formula dries fast to a high shine finish.

Sharpie Permanent Markers in Pink, Purple and Lime green were used for the water colour effect. These were mixed with Iso-Propyl Alcohol 99.9% Pure in a small ceramic dish. This was then painted onto nails with Fraulein Nail Art Brush and blended by adding more Iso-Propyl. The Sharpie Permanent Markers could also be applied directly onto nails when base colour is completely dry and then blended with acetone and brush.

INM Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat Silver was added to give a subtle sparkle to nails.

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat gives nails a smooth, high shine finish.
