Review: BPS Cuticle Tattoos

Painted Fingertips | Half-moons and cuticle tattoos

Some items in this post have been provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

Today I have another Born Pretty Store review to share with you. Today’s product is a little different, and it doesn’t actually go on your nails – it goes on your cuticles! Just for something out of the ordinary, I decided to try out some cuticle tattoos. Let’s take a look: Painted Fingertips | Half-moons and cuticle tattoosIf you ever used one of those rub-on tattoos when you were a kid, these are basically the same thing. The tattoos come on a card backing; just cut out the piece you want, stick it where you want it to go, and then rub the back with a wet cloth for a few seconds and you have a temporary tattoo. The pack comes with 20 tattoos in different sizes (so enough for 2 full manicures, or a lot more if you just use them as an accent). Painted Fingertips | Half-moons and cuticle tattoosI found these very easy to apply and for the most part, they applied well. I did get one which disintegrated a bit so I removed it and applied one of the left over tattoos. I decided to complement the pattern of the cuticle tattoos with some nail art. I started with a base of Sinful Colors Charmed and then added the half-moon pattern using acrylic paint. Painted Fingertips | Half-moons and cuticle tattoosI have actually tried cuticle tattoos once before, although these are more shaped to the cuticle. I found these fun for something different but they aren’t something I would wear on a daily basis. They also started to rub off before long, so I’d suggest these for a fun event or night out in case they don’t last. Because they come on an opaque backing, I also found it a little hard to line up the tattoos exactly where I wanted them to stick – I think I did well enough though.

  • Deborah – Love Varnish

    That’s such a unique look, really cool! I’d wear it to a festival I think :).

    • Painted Fingertips

      Yes it’s great for a fun occasion!

  • Jessica W

    Okay, this is totally a fun look! I would definitely rock this – probably because it would annoy my husband. 😛

    • Painted Fingertips

      Haha! Luckily mine is pretty cool with anything I put on my nails 🙂

  • Simona @LightYourNails!

    Those are something I’d never wear to be honest! But I guess they can be used the other side up, basically the way you hand painted them?!

    • Painted Fingertips

      It’s definitely not for anyone! I hadn’t thought of trying them on the nail itself, so I’m not sure if they’d stick, but it could look cool if it does work.

  • Polish Those Nails

    These are really cool! I’ve been guilty of drawing designs on my fingers like this with pens in the past, so I’d totally rock these haha!

    • Painted Fingertips

      Haha! There are a few different patterns as well so they can be pretty fun 🙂

  • Polished Hippy

    I loved those temporary tattoos as a kid! These would not last on me though as I wash my hands constantly.

    • Painted Fingertips

      So did I! These didn’t last very long on me either. They’re supposed to be removed with oil so I suppose the fact I put lotion on my hands not long before applying them didn’t help.

  • AlpsNailart

    This looks cool. I would love to wear something like this, its so much fun.

    • Painted Fingertips

      You should try it out!

  • Lothwen Akira

    This is sooooo awesome! Would be great for a special occasion. Love the complimentary nail art too 😀

    • Painted Fingertips

      I definitely think it’s a look for a special occasion!

  • Lustrous Lacquer

    I just dont know how I feel about these tattoos. I kind of like them, but they look odd to me at the same time. Of course I will probably decide that I like them a month after the trend has worn off.

    • Painted Fingertips

      I know what you mean. They’re not something I’d start wearing every day but they are fun for once in a while. I have some more from another brand and I’m sure that I’ll use them eventually as well.

  • vonimoller

    I admittedly don’t like the cuticle tattoos BUT the cuticle art is amazing

  • Koneko

    I bought some to use on my nails instead of above as the decoration in a jelly sandwich.
