Holographic autumn leaves using temporary tattoo paper

Once a week I like to try out another temporary tattoo nail art design. This is a design I put together based on autumn leaves.

Here is the image I used, which I shrunk down to fit on each nail, then I also printed a larger version for an accent nail.  The temporary tattoos were applied over a mani done with two coats of Layla Mercury Twilight.

I have to say, the design didn't quite translate onto the nail.  It was certainly pretty and colourful with lots of autumn colours and that stunning holo shimmer, but in the sun you really couldn't tell they were autumn leaves.

Even in the shade they were hard to make out, except for my thumb which turned out perfectly.

See, lots of multicoloured autumn goodness, that really doesn't look like leaves. Oh well.




While I have your attention, can I please put in a quick apology.  I was reading a few of my past posts earlier today and was appalled at the number of spelling and grammatical errors in my blog posts. I truly am an educated woman with a well paying government job, that actually does know how to spell and construct well formed sentences.  I do know the difference between your and you're, and now and how, despite the example that I provide here daily on my blog.   You see, I just type and click publish.  My life is too short and busy to proof read my blog posts, but unfortunately that means you lovely readers get stuck with my craptasitc spelling! Please forgive me, but don't expect to see a change ;-)

  2. Cool and lol your apology ;) I also printed on tattoo paper but it was a fail :( I just couldn't get the tattoo peeled of the background paper. I thought it was tattoo paper that you had to make wet (similair to decals) but it was peel of tattoo paper.
