Chalkboard Nail Art!




Wouldn't it be fun to write or draw whatever you wanted  on your nails and then erase and start all over. Boredom in the classroom will be no more! Painted acrylic nails with chalkboard paint are a fresh new trend for school.  

Materials: Chalkboard Paint, Colored Chalk, Acrylic Nails, small paintbrush

Grab nails and lay out over paper so not to get your table painted on.  Dab paint onto nails following the chalk paints directions.  Allow to dry for 24 hrs.  Glue nails or whatever method preferred to fingernails, and let your creative ideas going and decorate chalk nails before or after application is done.  Enjoy your fun chalkboard nails!

    Thank you for your feedback! The paint is pretty strong as long as you let it dry for 24hrs. The paint stays ona little better if you scuff down the acrylic nail with a file.
