Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day to everyone in the U.S.! Memorial Day is such a fun holiday! Its a great day to remember all of the brave people who died fighting for our country. So of course I had to create a manicure just for this day.

For this manicure I used Wet n Wild White French Creme as the base. Then I went in with a nail art brush and painted red stripes with China Glaze Hey Sailor. The blue I used was China Glaze First Mate. After everything was dry I went back and added dots and rhinestones to some of the fingers. The middle finger is a tattoo from bigRuby as well as an added blue rhinestone. (I get all my rhinestones from Born Pretty Store)

Did you create a manicure for Memorial Day? If so, leave a link below! I'd love to see it. (:

bigRuby Nail Tattoos- Review and Photos

I was lucky enough to receive these amazing nail tattoos from Lauren over at bigRuby who kindly sent them for review. This is my first time to try anything like this, but as soon as I heard about them, I was dying to try it!

bigRuby is a company that creates tattoos designed for easy manicures and pedicures. Each set comes with 10 different designs and a total of 86 tattoos for only $12.00 a set. The tattoos come in different sizes to guarantee a fit for your nail size. I was sent over a few samples including the Sea Creature and Mod design sets which I mixed together to get this manicure:

(Base color is Wet n' Wild Shiver and the glitter layered on top is Constance Carroll Glitzy Aqua Sparkle)

These tattoos were super, duper easy to use. Easier than stamping and way easier than free-hand nail art, in my opinion. All you do is cut out the design you want, remove the plastic overlay, apply it to your nail, then hold a damp towel over it for about 5-10 seconds. Once you're done, seal it with a top coat.

My first thoughts about these were that they would transfer onto the nails as a sheer color. But I was so wrong! Instead, they are much more opaque once on the nails than on the sheet. The design comes out exactly as you see it.

These tattoos are quickly becoming my favorite form of nail art. They are quick and easy to use, affordable, and super cute! I really have nothing but good to say about this product and I definitely recommend checking out bigRuby's website.
