On the last day of my Christmas Countdown, I end with this shimmering body art kit by Glimmer. Temporary body art has been the big craze of the summer – seen on Alessandra Ambrosia, Aerin Lauder, Rita Ora and Beyonce – and it is just as perfect for the party season as it is on the fields of the big summer festivals.
For Christmas, Glimmer has teamed up with Melanie Sykes to produce the Gold by Melanie temporary tattoo kit, £13.99. Creatively directed and co-designed by the model and TV presenter, the set includes two sheets with designs inspired by jewelry, symbols and words that have a special meaning for her.
Included is a fishnet cuff or necklace, shoal of fish, stars, drops and chains. There’s a star armband, necklace with star pendants, arrows, swallows, mandala sun, feathers and hearts.
Easy to apply, you simply clean the area of the skin where you want to place the tattoo then cut the design that you wish to apply. Then remove the transparent film, place the tattoo onto the skin (design on the skin), damp the white transfer sheet with a wet sponge or cloth, wait 20 secs and slowly remove the sheet, done!
Ideal to pop under the tree or tuck into a stocking, the metallic jewellery tattoos (which embody Melanie’s elegant yet rock chic style) will give a touch of festive sparkle, like real jewellery but at a fraction of the cost. Sparkling lovelies.
Just a note to wish you all a Merry Christmas and thanks for following!
