Graffiti Nail Art

I bought this nail art pen set for around 2 months before I finally decided to open it and play with it because it seemed like a very complicated task. Although I can't say that it was really easy to use, I can say that it isn't too hard to use and is not 100% impossible to do by yourself.

The lines that I were made by these pens were a little thicker than I would have liked so I used a black striper polish to give it the illusion of the sharp edges.

Another thing that prevented me from opening up these goodies was that I was worried that the pens being felt tips would dry up really quickly once I open them and the dried nail polish will clog up the felt tip then it would all be a waste. But to my surprise the ink that comes out of these nail art pens are not really nail polish.... they are water based (I know this because I went to take a shower before I put on my top coat and it all washed away..... sad I know)
So I assume that, since they are water based, they shouldn't clog up.

Over all I do like them :) and I will continue to use them.

    1. Thanks Thanks
      The cross was the nail I had the most difficulty with because everything needed to be parallel, but I am glad you like it

  6. I could never pull off such designs; my hand would shake too much. What a bummer that your hard work washed away in the shower! I would have been so sad! :(

    1. my hands used to shake a lot too, but now I try to keep part of my hand rested on a sturdy surface which helped me a lot.
      You can give that a try :) :)

      But yes, it all washed off :( sad

  7. Lovely! Would love to try that if I were still a lady. Can't do that now as I have a child now. I bet the nail polish will be put to waste! :)

    1. No one ever put a rule saying that mom's can't have pretty nails, although I would understand that it might be harder to do all the crazy designs.
      With being a mom it is important to take care of yourself too!!!! Cheers

  8. I love the star! I wish i had steady hands like yours! Too bad it got washed away! :(

    1. I strongly recommend resting both hands on a sturdy surface while doing this, since it would help keep shaky hands steady.
      That is how I got around it :p
