Holiday Temporary Tattoos
Around Halloween one of the many blogs I read featured nails done with temporary tattoos. I sadly cannot remember who's blog to point you to where I got this idea from, but I knew when I saw it that I wanted to try it.
I have been enjoying walking thru Christmas isles and buying a few new decorations the last few weeks. During my window shopping I stumbled upon stocking stuffers at wal-mart. Ten small boxes with a sheet of temporary tattoos in each seemed good enough for me. Gives me five full Mani's seeing how each sheet has five designs on it. I just had to have them when I saw them. I might toss a set in each of my winners boxes before I ship them out as well... still debating on this.
For a base I used Milani 3D Holographic in Cyberspace. The only thing I hate about the tattoos is that the white is so translucent you can't really see it at all unless your nose is almost pressed against my hand looking at them. On my Right hand my middle finger is supposed to be a polar bear but you cant really tell what the heck it is.
Putting these on was simple. I just cut the temporary tattoos into smaller nail sized shapes of the part of each design that I wanted, applied like you would for the skin, let air dry and sealed with a clear top coat.
