Hey everyone! I hope all is well. I can not believe it’s Summer already…. it’s NUTS!
So, recently I’ve been in a very festival mood (though I’m not attending any this year!) All day I look on YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and see these amazing new festival trends and looks.
Among my favorites are flash tattoos! Last year my mom had gifted me a pack from Flash Tattoos and a Little Mermaid pack from Spencers. They have been sitting in a drawer waiting for me to give them life! But wait… there’s more: I found a pack of generic metallic tattoos at a DOLLAR TREE. The bargainer inside me flipped out.
Today, I will be trying out all three packs and giving you a henna-like hand look.
(Pointer fingers as well as ring fingers are the dollar store tattoos. Middle fingers are the flash tattoos, and the pinkies are the Spencers set.)
My thoughts on the quality of each set was that they are all pretty much the same. The Flash of course worked a lot better because the backing was more sticky, so it stayed in place. My only complaint for the dollar store ones was that they don’t completely dry on the skin as well as the Spencers and Flash Tattoos do. If you’re only wearing them for a day it’s totally fine.
A few tips I have when applying these is to use rubbing alcohol on the area where your going to place the tattoo for a better stick. LET THE TATTOO DRY.
If you have any questions or concerns leave them in the comments. Lets chat! As well if you would like me to do more festival tutorials!
Question of the day- Are you going to any festivals this year?
