Icing - Unnamed white mini and body tattoos

APPLICATION: Somewhat thick formula,but otherwise smooth
TOPCOAT?: Only in last photo - 1 coat of Beauty Secrets Fast Finish
SOURCE: Icing store in the mall
COMMENTS: This is a nice soft white that packs a lot of shine. I embellished it with kids body tattoos that I found at the 99c store. These are fun!

The tattoos - I bought two different packs. Each comes with a lot! Most are large, but I'll just have to think of creative ways to use them.

Before topcoat. To apply the tattoo, you have to stick it to the nail face down, then wet the paper backing till it releases. I did mess one up as you can see. I then added some dots in different colors for visual interest (to mimic those on the mushrooms as well).

And finally after a coat of topcoat. So cute - sorry, wasn't able to get more photos!

UP NEXT: The green polish from the same set:


  1. I think white polish just looks awesome on brown skin! You are so creative. I saw some stickers and thought about buying them but they were too big and not water decals. Your stickers look great and putting dots on with them really gave them character :)

  2. What a great idea! I would've never thought of that. The little dots give the tattoos a little more character. WIN!
