DIY: Tattoo nail art

First of all I would like to apologize for not posting for about -thinks- two weeks. I’ve been extremely busy writing a research paper for school and of course exams are coming up, so I’ll probably be quite busy in the near future as well.

Anyway, I’ll try to keep you guys entertained with frequent posts. This particular one will explain yet another nail art DIY (is it a bit too much lately? I just love nail art) that is very easy and quick!

All you need is:

  • Base/top coat nail polish
  • A white or light grey nail polish
  • A wet sponge
  • Fake tattoos!

Do you remember as a kid, when you would stick fake tattoos on your arms, and pretend to people they were real? I did for sure. I guess my fascination with tattoos started very young. Nowadays, you can still find classy and of very good quality fake tattoos for your body, but have you ever thought about decorating your nails with them?

It works exactly the same as when you stick them to your skin.
First, apply a clear base coat to protect your nails. Follow with one or more layers of a light nail polish, white or grey look best. Let this dry thoroughly. Take your fake tattoo and a pair of scissors, and cut out pieces that fit your nails. You can choose to make all your nails have a similar look, or vary, it’s up to you! Then, take your fake tattoo pieces and remove the transparant piece of plastic that’s protecting the tattoo itself. Put them on the desired place on your nail and take a wet sponge to soak the tattoo. After about 30 seconds, you can remove the piece of paper and the tattoo itself should stick to your nails. Carefully dry your nails and apply a clear top coat. All done!
