This Summer’s Hottest Beauty Trend: Metallic Flash Tattoos

This summer’s hottest beauty trend is, arguably,  the metallic flash tattoo. You might think it’s cheesy to go around wearing temporary tattoos, but they are quite a lot of fun and they look gorgeous on tanned skin at the beach! The metallic and colored variety of flash tattoos look especially pretty and downright stunning when coupled with metallic and/or blue nail polish. Add actual gold and silver jewelry to the mix and you have a seriously winning combination. Since it’s such an awesome look for summery beach days, I thought it would be fun to share my favorites from Etsy and beyond ♥

I love how these tattoos look on and I love that you don’t have to ink your skin to enjoy a fun way to accessorize for summer. The cool thing is that they enable you to wear jewelry to the beach, but it’s jewelry that will simply wash away and you never have to worry about losing it! I pretty much wore all gold flash tattoos last summer, but I think the ones that include colors are much cooler and I’ll be stocking up on those this year ♥

You can also browse Etsy shops which sell these flash tattoos for really cheap. These are my favorites: SydneyGoldShopBySofiaShop, JewelTats and FashionTats 🙂

    I think these look lovely. However I don’t know that I trust myself to be able to apply them properly x

      they are so cute! If you can apply a temporary tattoo, these are just the same. ♥

    I LOVE metallic flash tattoos. I have a package of them and I’ve been loving them. Personally, I’m too much of a baby to get a real tattoo, so these are perfect for anyone who wants something fun and unique that’s temporary. I get compliments from people and the lake on them and I admit their great for this time of year.

      me too! I know I feel like I’m too fickle for real tattoos haha. I always change my mind every second. definitely! glad you’re loving them too 🙂 thanks for stopping by!

    This is my absolute favorite summer trend. I went to the beach last weekend and was upset that I couldn’t find any in time before leaving. They are so gorgeous when the light hits them.
