Change is glamorous, no?
Typically, I’m hooked on classics, from the style of dress that I know complements my body type best, to the shade of my lipstick. But occasionally, the urge to shake things up becomes overwhelming and in those moments, there’s nothing more glamorous than breaking out of one’s mold.
This week, I’m opting for a “supercool” twist on a classic mani by pairing Perfect Formula polish in Deco (you may recall I sported this hue here) with Jessica’s Alluring Creature and Supercool Nail Tattoos from bigRuby.
The bigRuby nail tats are fairly easy to apply and can be used to amp up any basic mani. Simply remove a tattoo from its backing, apply to dry nails (over polish or on a bare nail) and then hold a cotton ball dipped in water on top of the tattoo for 15 seconds. Finally, apply clear polish over the nail to “set” the tattoo; I used CND’s Super Shiney Top Coat.
The effect is unique, yet subtle enough that I’d try it again. I think I’ll experiment with a tone-on-tone effect, such as a set of grey bigRuby tattoos over a favorite slate polish. And, I’ll definitely take the tattoos to my favorite salon next time because, while change can be good, I never tire of getting a professional manicure.
P.S. bigRuby sent me several packages of tattoos, so I’ve got a couple of packages to share with you, my pretties. Just comment below if you’d like to try them and I’ll send two readers each a set.
