Nailspiration: Flash Tattoos

Nailspiration Flash Tattoos The Daily VarnishFlash tattoos. The trend now that the weather is getting warmer that I can’t seem to get away from!

While I like the idea of flash tattoos they’re not exactly practical for everyday life. So I decided to take the idea of flash tattoos and turn it into a manicure.

Most of the flash tattoo manicures I’ve seen use a black or white base but I wanted to keep with the idea of a super metallic design against a nude background.

For the base of my manicure I used essie Mademoiselle. I didn’t want any shimmer and I still wanted my natural nail to show so Mademoiselle was perfect.

Then I used Orly Rage and China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets to create the designs. I got the inspiration for the designs from flash tattoos I’d seen on Pinterest. I stuck to easy to create geometric designs and added an arrow on my pinky nail for good measure.

I have to say, I really love the way this turned out. This would be a really fun summer manicure; especially at the beach!

There are a few more swatches under the jump.
