bigRuby "Hers" Nail Tattoos

Nail art is my favorite thing in the world, but I'll admit that it can be time consuming and sometimes frustrating. Sometimes you wanna jazz up that manicure but don't wanna spend a ton of time on nail art. ENTER BIGRUBY NAIL TATTOOS!


These nail tattoos are easy, fun, and sassy. The designs are awesome -- I couldn't pick just one! So I jammed a bunch of them together. Not sure what to call it though... graffiti nails? Collage art? Clipart manicure? What do you think?

These nail tattoos are very similar to the temporary tattoos that you probably used as a kid. The process is simple!
  1. Apply your base polish and let it dry completely.
  2. Cut the tattoo you want to use out of the sheet.
  3. Remove the clear top sheet. Press the tattoo (image side down) on to your nail. BigRuby makes it easy to place these where you want them because they have the image reprinted on the back side of the sheet!
  4. Wet the back of the tattoo and press down for 15 seconds. Remove the paper.
  5. Smooth your tattoo out (if needed) with a wet finger. 
  6. Let dry and finish with two coats of topcoat.
Even that makes it seem more complicated than it is though -- basically the steps are cut, stick, wet, smooth, and finish.

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as the base polish, and all of these tattoos came from the "Hers" tattoo set. BigRuby also offers a bunch more tattoo pack themes like "His," "Sea," "Garden," and "Juju," among others!

Obviously I piled a TON of tattoos on my nails, but you could use one or two as an accent if you want a simpler manicure. I actually have a couple of looks saved up that only use single tattoos, but I just couldn't wait to share this crazy one with you.

Overall I was very pleased with the experience I had using these tattoos. They were easy to apply, are well designed, and look beautiful on the nail. Each pack of tattoos comes with two sheets so they are sure to last you a while.

You can buy bigRuby tattoos on www.bigrubytattoos.com. Each pack retails for $12, though they have a few packs on sale right now, too! You can also find the brand on Twitter.

  5. Argh, I've seen these on a few blogs now and I'm finding myself really REALLY wanting some! I love the over the top look you've got here with a whole array of them - I think it looks a lot more interesting than just using a small amount.

    May I also ask you a question on My Boyfriend Scales Walls? Do you know, by any chance, how well it works under neon polishes? x

    What a great concept. Doing your nails takes a lot of time and I love to find fast a new ways to do things. I think this works from 3girls1apple.com

  22. I love all these jumbled together. On their own, they just remind me of something you could achieve with stamping. But altogether they look very cool and different!

  23. i love this look of this! so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's true - tattoos/decals/wraps are all pretty much easier and cleaner than stamping! And no extra accessories needed to achieve them either.

  25. Thank you very much, Sarah! I'm on a hunt for the best neon underwear, and the MBSW's praised formula sounds quite promising. :D

  26. HAHAHA Sarah! I have heard of these before and all I can say is 'you would!' this is so you, unexpected and awesome! thanks for this post! xox

  27. I actually really like these! I have fallen in love with stamping, but it can be hard to get them exactly where you want them, so these would be fun.
