Gel pen doodles

Hey everyone! Today I have a post for you that some of you may have seen a sneak peak of on instagram: gel pen doodles. I've done this design repeatedly in lectures for a while, and since I discovered that I could use gel pens I've been wanting to do it on my nails. 

There's very little to say about these nails because for me they truly are just doodles! I started off with a base of OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and used a Muji 0.38 Gel Pen for the design topped off with a coat of Seche Vite when it completely dried




Hope you like it! Let me know what you think :)

    But seriously, great stuff.
    If I tried it, I think my left hand would look cool... but my right hand probably wouldn't qualify even as a doodle - it would really be just a chicken scratch :D .

  19. Hi, this Muji 0.38 Gel Pen you have used is a normal gel pen or it is filled with some kind of nail polish?

    This manicure is just amazing!

  21. Beautiful! and it is an incredible concept to utilize a carbamide peroxide gel pencil, a great way to move amount of time in dull talks!
