Easy Outline Nails {DIY}

remember the nail tutorial here where i got my BIC on and created some super cute stripes? well i have been seeing this 'outline nail' trend floating around and realized the permanent markers would be perfect for this. outlining your nails with a brush can be really difficult, but outlining your nails with marker, that's  easy-peasy.

for this tutorial you will need:
  • permanent markers
  • polish of choice

  • apply polish
  • outline nails with marker
  • paint topcoat to seal




  1. That is cool idea. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for this post doll, Ive seen this trend but wasnt sure how they were doing it..looks so easy:)

  3. Using markers is something I would have never thought of! They would make this so much easier than trying to paint it on with nail polish - thanks for the tip! :)

  4. thanks for the cute idea!!!! ima have to try this! :)

  5. I wouldn't have thought of marker art. What an interesting idea!

  6. I've been using markers for a looong time! really is the easiest way to create stuff on your nails!! Never thought to do this with markers though! nice!!! love it :D

  7. Some thing a lot of nail artists do is use acrylic paint. That way if you mess up, you can just wash it off.
    Also, using a dotting tool. I don't have brushes, so I use dotting tools. You need a steady hand for that, but it works.
