I don't use Sharpies as brand just diffrent ones but oil based are best as they can paint on anything (any surface) and dry quick. Thicker ones are better as we can dose a line by pressure.

Oh im glad theres a post on this as i also saw this on pinterest and thought oh what an idea! but just wasnt sure if it was professional enough. I have the metallic sharpie pens already as i brought them originally for christmas cards and crafts. They came as a set from hobbycraft which contain copper, gold and silver! going to have a play now Im intrigued by the white pen also

If you are using them over rockstars would you say to do two coats of top coat, then buff, design, then top coat again or just one coat of tc over the rockstars, buff, design then top coat again?

Also when buffing the tc over rockstars will this dull their shine at all or will the last coat of topcoat 'restore' the shine

For both secend option so just one top coat gel then buff and then design and the top coat which bring shine back again . If that soak off stuff then to take it off when you do mistake you just buff it . x

It dry very quick which is great
It is great espesialy for swirls few seconds and it is done, few designs done with pen:
Now that is exactly what I'm trying to create!!!! Beautiful job! N thank you for the post. super talented

OMG! I've just been looking at the HobbyCraft website and they have a 24 pen set with a nice case, different point size pens, a silver one.. blah blah blah for 34. Salon Geek is so bad for making me want things I don't need.

I'd be interested to try this on my own nails, I like playing around to see what works 😃
2 layers of color, cured 2mins each. Use a makeup sponge saturated with 99%isopropyl alcohol to remove tacky layer. Use sharpie. Let dry completely! Apply 2 layers of topcoat(if sharpie extends through to free edge, otherwise, one is fine), curing each layer for 2 minutes ☺

Sorry to ask another question but I thought IPA (D.sperse) will remove colour if not top coated? Because if I wipe with it after my top coat but miss a bit of top coat it damages the colour. Could this not happen? Sorry I feel this is a stupid question...

so you can seal design with sharpie, and to aplly a top coat again surface need to be ruff as gel don't stick to gloss surface and it would peel x

This is fab! But Sharpie are missing a trick here, if they just added a range 'Sharpie nails' I'd buy it just to feel better about drawing on my clients nails
'Oh no dear client this isn't a sharpie, it's sharpie nails, professionals only'

I actually used a Sharpie pen to do my Winnie the Pooh nails I posted a couple of weeks ago. I was going to start a thread myself on this very subject but changed my mind.

I have been looking for a "pen" that I can draw with as a) I can't get the black, black enough with Shellac when trying to do thick lines or fine detail and b) I am rubbish at art using brushes, so really wanted a pen to draw with.

I tried the nail art pens but the nibs are tubes, so I still couldn't get my lines precise and thin enough and didn't have the control I wanted.

So I used a Sharpie and thought well it's on a colour pop so I will do it then see if it would be ok to use on clients at a later date.

I then researched for marker pens that are acrylic paint based but that were exactly like a pen and came across these but they are massively expensive. However they are odourless, xylene free and non toxic, so I still want them!

So in the meantime, thanks to this thread, I shall use my husband's Sharpie's (he has the zip pack of them JuicyLucy mentioned for his artwork ) until I can afford the On the Run acrylic pens
Deena, kinkyboots33 and PinkSwoon heart this.
