Big Ruby Nail Tattoo Review & How-To

I won the whole collection of Big Ruby Nail Tattoos from Vampy Varnish & I love them!!! I've already done a manicure with them before which can be seen in this post.

I'd painted my nails the day before with Essie Absolutely Shore. You definitely want your polish to be fully dry before applying one of the tattoos. 
Each set comes with instructions.
It's so hard to choose from all of Big Ruby's cool designs, but I finally decided on a few tattoos form the Sea collection. Simply cut out the tattoos you want to use.
 Then peel off the protective film.
Place the design face down on your nail. I marked the location of the design on the back to help me with placement.
Then just press a wet rag on the tattoo for 10-15 seconds.
 Peel of the paper and you're already almost finished!
Big Ruby formulated a top coat to work particularly well with their nail tattoos. It's a great glossy topcoat that dries fast.
I did discover that the yellow shell didn't show up well over the another pastel. I was pretty sure that it wouldn't but I wanted to try for this how-to post. I tried another yellow shell over a darker color and it showed up perfectly.
Gorgeous except for my mistake with the low contrast between the yellow shell & the pale green!
 
I think these are so much fun and pretty much fool proof!

Thanks for reading!

Big Ruby Nail Tattoos With Zoya Kieko & Charlotte Russe Jade

 I won the whole collection of Big Ruby Nail Tattoos recently from Vampy Varnish & they are so stinking cool!!! I'll do a full review of them soon before now here's a quick preview. Just know that they are ridiculously easy to use and super cute!
I used Zoya Kieko & Charlotte Russe Jade for the accent nail. I decided to make Will pick out which Big Ruby designs to use this time. He chose a medium rocket ship and 2 planets. Pretty adorable. I'll be using more Big Ruby Nail Tattoos very soon. What a great product!

Thanks for reading!
