To use, simply paint your nails in the colour of your choice and allow it to fully dry. Then peel off the nail tattoo from the sheet with the design of your choice and place onto your nail. I used tweezers to make the application process easier and to have more precision. Simply finish with a top coat (I used the Nails inc. caviar one) to prevent them from peeling off and make them super shiny.
Once applied they look really realistic as if you've painted them yourself (I fooled my sister into thinking that I had painted the bird ones by hand) and will last on your nails for around 3-5 days depending on which base/top coat you use. To remove you simply use nail polish remover and a cotton pad to remove the polish and then I picked off the tattoo.
what I love about these is that there's so many possibilities with the designs you can do. I used the bird ones with a plain blue background to show how simple they can be but if you wanted you could so a simple ombre, polkadot or striped background and then apply the tattoo on top to jazz it up a bit. I can't wait to use the bow ones with maybe a bit of pink and white polkadots going on too to give it a bit of a minnie mouse feel to it!
Boots and from the Skin Art website.
Skin art also sell nail polishes and they very kindly let me review them too- here's what I think of them!
the first thing that I noticed was the really cute names of these- the neutral grey/brown shade called 'mine's a skinny latte' is my favourite, it's just so cute! Now, onto the actual nail polish.
I thought I would try this one first as I wanted to get on the whole nude nail bandwagon like lots of other bloggers are at the moment. I like how neat it looks compared to how I normally have some form of nail art on the ends of my fingers. It took me three coats to make it completely opaque like this, which is quite annoying as I usually only do two coats. On the other hand, I'm not sure what it is about these nail polishes but they have an almost gel like finish to them. They are super glossy and barely chip at all- this photo was taken after it being applied for two days- completely chip free as you can see! I used the Nails inc. caviar base and top coat which I love and this may be part of the reason why they last so well but it must be down to the quality of the actual nail polish too!
The nail polishes are priced at £3 each and are available here
