When it comes to doing the actual “art” portion of nail art, a nail art pen is your best friend. We used a white nail art pen from Sally Hansen – it works just like a marker and it perfect for doing small details.
It’s easy to get nervous when drawing on a small, slippery surface like a finger nail. Focus on simplifying shapes instead of looking at the whole picture. A football is just an oval with pointy ends. Everything else was drawn on easily with our nail art pen. For the striped pinky, we added blue on the sides of the red stripe and then added the white lines with the marker after that had dried. The marker may need a couple of coats to become opaque, but it dries pretty quickly.
We reserved the team logos for the thumbs – luckily for Giants fans, their logo is pretty easy with the nail art pen!
