A new Facebook challenge started this week! It is part of the same group who participated in the A2Z Series. A2Z is over so we are diving into WIKIPEDIA! I am super excited for this challenge. I love the Random page Wikipedia game so I am completely onboard with a challenge based around it! This week’s prompt is tattoos…


Many moons ago, let’s say, 12-13 years, my father brought back some temporary water tattoos from India. Many were the typical Indian designs and very authentic. I never had an occasion to wear them but they were too pretty to throw away so they stayed in a dark drawer..until yesterday!

Temporary tattoos are hot at the moment; especially on the bohemian festival circuit. When I saw this week’s prompt my mind jumped to these old decals! Why not use them in nail art??

I am pretty pleased with how these came out! The tattoos applied much better than I anticipated. There were some bald spots  but they were barely noticeable because of the metallic sheen.

I hope you like it!


Indian Water Decals Nail Art | The Rite of AgingI used Essie Mademoiselle and top coat as my base and waited for them to dry completely.

I applied different parts of the decal to my nails by placing the sheet face down and holding it in place with a water-soaked cotton ball.
