How do you paint this awesome back to school notebook nail art?

Well, the secret is permanent markers! (I used these.)

Basically you paint your nails white, and then draw on the rest.

  • Paint your nails white. (I recommend OPI Alpine Snow.)
  • Let them dry really well
  • Use Bic Mark-It permanent markers in blue to draw in the notebook paper lines
  • Use the pink marker to draw in the margin line
  • Doodle your favorite doodles on with a black marker
  • Finish up with a fast drying top coat to seal in the markers.

And you have the cutest ever doodle nail art for back to school!

Here’s everything you need to create this look:
