Time and time again we see all these intricate and fun nail designs with different colors and patters designs that most assume could only be achieved by a wonderful manicurist with tons of nail polish pens.

I was very pleased with the results… until about a few hours later. Just by going about my day with homework and house chores, the Sharpie design had completely worn off. Adding a clear coat on top is definitely a MUST if you’re going to try any kind of Sharpie nail art. Otherwise, you’ll just watch your pinperfect manicure fade away.
