Today I have another nail art for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge with Crumpet’s Nail Tarts. I really enjoyed this nail art because I used a technique I have never used before… I actually coloured in my nails using colouring pencils!
I got the idea for these from this post on Piggieluv. Narmai did some amazingly detailed musical nail art and in one of the designs, she coloured it in with pencils. My musical nail art is nothing like hers but I loved the idea of colouring my nails!
I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I added a matte top coat to create a rough surface for the pencils to be able to write on. I waited until it was completely dry then got colouring! I was impressed with how well it worked but just make sure you get your matte top coat everywhere. I top coated over the pencils and then I painted the music notes with black acrylic paint.
These were really fun and it’s definitely a technique I’ll be trying again!
