Today I have Stained Glass nail art to share with you
For this I used
- Revlon – Stiletto
- Rimmel – Shooting Star (Space Dust)
- Filthy Gorgeous – Prism
- Moyou Gothic Collection 04
- Konad Black
- Seche Vite
- Permanent Marker Pens
I started our with a Glittery base, I used two coats of Shooting star followed by one coat of prism.
As Shooting Star is a textured polish, I added a coat of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp over.
I used Konad Special Polish in Black for the Image. Then another coat of SV over the stamping!
My first attempt to add colour to my stained glass nails was with my tinted polishes, and it really didn’t go well! It was lumpy, bubbly and the colours really weren’t bright enough. I had only tried this on my index finger so I hid the horrible mess with a coat of Stiletto.
This was a bit of an experiment to see if it would work! I coloured in my nails using permanent marker pens! I only tried it because I thought I was going to take off the polish and start again!
It’s very pretty but It’s probably not the best idea I’ve had… I should probably invest in some good quality tinted polishes!
I didn’t add any topcoat over the ink, I tried on my pinky nail and the Seche Vite dissolved the colours, so I covered that with a coat of Stiletto as well.
I didn’t wear this for very long, and I wouldn’t recommend colouring in your nails with permanent marker pens!

I think Ultra Fine Sharpies are super fun and useful when it comes to DIY nails. These are beautiful. I’m no where near as talented as you or some of the other women making nail blogs but I’m inspired to give it a go sometime! You have so many amazing creations on here!!!

Thank you so much! 😀 I haven’t tried Sharpies, I’ll have to invest in some 🙂
