Maybelline Color Show Nail Tattoos

Self-Purchased

I recently found a pile of Maybelline Color Show Nail Tattoos at my local Dollar Tree. I generally like Maybelline polishes and the nail tattoo concept intrigued me so I figured for $1 why not try them out? They had 4 or 5 patterns but I was really only partial to 2 of them, the NYC Park set and the Asia Downtown set so I picked up a few of each. From what I can tell these appear to have been discontinued which makes sense since I got ’em at the Dollar Tree. I debated not posting a review, but I figured I might as well since my store still has some left; maybe yours does too.

Each package comes with 1 sheet of tattoos which range in size to accommodate different nail sizes. There appear to be 4 of each size which would make for 2 full manicures plus some small extra ones in the middle. One of these sets totals 32 tattoos and the other has 33.

Here are some close ups of these two sets. As always, click the images to see them full sized.

There are instructions on the back of the package but they’re fairly easy to use and are much like regular temporary tattoos. I took photos of the process so you can see.

Step 1: Apply base coat and polish. Let dry.

Step 4: Soak a cotton ball or round in water and gently press it over the paper backing for about 10 seconds so the water soaks through the paper.

Step 5: Remove the cotton and paper backing. Press the design onto the nail carefully to make sure it's adhered. Then apply your top coat!

As you can see, application was very quick and easy. I had no problems at all with the tattoos mucking up my base polish color, even though it had only set 30 mins or so. The images are clear and crisp. I read some reviews that said that you could see the tattoo border around the design. I can see it’s a little raised around the design if I look closely however for me, they don’t affect the colors any. If the design is too big for your nail and some applies to your skin, the excess is very easily removed. I haven’t had any problems with the designs peeling up at all. All in all, I’d say I’m pretty happy with these, especially given the $1 price tag.

Here are some of the finished designs.
