The Daily Nail: Temporary Tattoos for Your Nails

Nail art is going in many different and extreme directions, thanks to the likes of Gaga and cool nail technology. While some of the craziest versions require a salon and a professional, the DIY girl still has tons of options. Different from Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips and not as bizarre as temporary lip tattoos, BigRuby temporary nail tattoos are an easy way to add a bit of flair without too much commitment. They work just like those tattoos you got in a birthday goody bag when you were a kid: cut out the one you want, press it on your dry nail, wet the backing until the tattoo comes off, then cover with a top coat. There are six sets available: cosmic, garden, star (our fave), mod, sea, and tweet (cute birds). They’re $12 for a pack of 86, and BigRuby also sells a quick drying top coat for $9.95.
