A nail tattoo is a small design that may be worn on any finger or toe. Although it’s called a tattoo, the design doesn’t penetrate the skin. Instead, it is painted using a special type of nail polish with metallic pigments. It’s also known as “temporary” tattoos because they last about 2 weeks. Nail tattoos are sized to fit both fingernails and toenails.
Even though many people wear this for fun, nail tattoos are often associated with members of gangs. It has been reported that some members mark their “territory” using these designs.
How long do tattooed fingernails last?
Nail tattoos usually last 2-3 days on nails or 5-7 days on cuticles. Nail tattoos are not permanent. They usually last about 1 week on the fingernails. We do offer refills for your clients who want to continue the look! But apply nail primer or base coat before use.
We don’t recommend using fake nails with nail tattoos because the nails are peeling off anyway so you won’t get the desired effect.
Mostly inks will last for at least 2 weeks on the nails. We also offer refills that you can use to extend the life of your client’s tattoos!
