These nail tattoos have been one of the many items which have gone missing at the bottom of my 'to-test' bag of products. I found them amongst a million sachet samples from magazines and various other bits and pieces. Immediately the bows sprung out to me. They called to me and said 'Helena, do a french manicure and put my bow as the accent nail', so this is exactly what I did.
I haven't given myself a french manicure in so long that the tips were near on impossible to do. However I struggled through and the outcome was made so much better as soon as I applied the bow.
By the name Nail Tattoo, I figured that these would apply like a fake tattoo, with a little bit of water to the back of the paper and hey presto. But no, they are actually a lot more like stickers. In fact, they are stickers! You simply peel them off the backing and place them onto the desired area of your nail. I find this easiest to do with a pair of tweezers.
When I found out they were stickers my heart did plummet a bit as I figured they would create a chunky layer on top of the nail that would curl up at the sides and never really lay flat. But the result was the complete opposite. Once applied, they adhered to the nail like magic and almost looked and felt painted on! I was so impressed. With one top coat to seal everything up, I was good to go.
I'm really happy with these. They are such a fun and cute way to spice up your day to day manicure, without having to spend the earth with regards to time or money. They're 3 for 2 at Boots at the moment too so well worth a look if you're interested in nail art of any kind.
