They loom really good, think I will fare better with solid nib.

Have spoken to someone who tested them, and they said they are like a felt tip pen. I imagine sharpies are alot cheaper.

I like the look of the pens, but have never tried sharpies. I'll give the sharpies a go this week.

I can confirm the black sharpies do work, I did a thumb nail test the other day and it was fine, my sharpie was a but butchered though as the hubby had used it for marking fences with grr. I'm after getting the silver, good and bronze trio but struggling to find it instore Sad

Does anyone know how much Sharpies normally cost each? Question I looked online, but I could only really see packs and I just want one to try. I might have to visit WHSmith tomorrow.......

I use Sharpies, they work well but they do tend to smudge when you top coat, so you really need to leave it dry for a while. My sister uses some Sharpie equivalents from Poundland or somewhere, and I don't think she has any problems with those.

Sharpies work just fine! My nails are a bit long for most of the stamping plates, so if I stamp in black, I freehand in the missing bits with a black Sharpie Very Happy Let it dry properly before you put on top coat!

My local post office sells them for about £1 each; I've also got a multi-pack from Tesco that worked out a bit less than that.

I'd never thought of using Sharpies!! Such a good tip.

You can buy mini sharpies too and these tend to be cheaper. Might be worth looking out for these if you want a variety of colours but not the cost of the big ones.

Thankyou Smile

Princess.. I have top coated the thumb after 5 minutes and just did a gentle sweep over, I made sure I had a big bead of top coat so that it would spread with minimal brush strokes Smile

Really, really want to try the metallic trio now!

Yay for Sharpies! I was pretty much sure that I was going to get a Barry M Pen but there's not point if you can get the same thing for much less, definitely going to be looking around for them!

Thanks for the tip, and love the holographic thumb!

I picked up the pink and white yesterday, they'd sold out of the black annoyingly. Haven't tried them out yet though. I might take a little look at the metallic Sharpies...

I assumed sharpies would smudge really badly as they have done when I tried using them on nailwheels. If I left them uncoated I could still smudge off with my finger ages after, if I top coated they sort of spread and smudged.
Not that I'm likely to try and of these things myself as I'm so cackhanded that - unless "it like a 5 year old drew it" becomes fashionable - there's not much point;)

(actually that's probably doing a a disservice to many 5 year olds)
