Hi guys, I know I've been pretty MIA lately, sorry about that. There's a lot of stuff going on in my personal life and I really just didn't have the energy to sit down and write. I'm back on track though and ready to review one of the funnest products I've ever been sent. Flash tattoos are metallic tattoos in what I could call adult designs. Many of the more popular designs are meant to mimic jewelry, making them great for summer time or parties where you don't want a heavy necklace bouncing around.
I will be the first to admit that I've turned down several offers to review flash tattoos, I always found them cheesy for some reason. But some of the designs that Veyo Life offered were really great looking so I agreed, figuring worst came to worst my son would enjoy them. I'm so glad I agreed to try these because I love them and wear them all the time now. The Veyo Life set is a pack of ten sheets with different designs on each page ranging from peacock feathers, to jewelry looking pieces, to some really fun beach designs. The whole pack is $21.99, with free Prime shipping, so just over $2 a sheet. Each sheet is about the size of half a sheet of paper, so I believe you get around 120 tattoos total, which is quite a lot of shiny tattoos.
These apply just like the temporary tattoos you get in the 25 cents machines, you cut it to size, peel the plastic part off, stick it to your skin, then wet and apply pressure for about 20 seconds. I never had a problem applying these, and they all came smoothly off the sheet. As far as lasting time it depends on what you are going to do. Things like the pool, sweating, and lotions/sunscreens will greatly reduce the lifespan of them. I think the longest any of the ones I tried lasted while still looking good was 3 days (on my chest), which is pretty decent. Obviously the ones I applied to my hand and fingers were gone by the end of the day thanks to hand washing, but they looked really neat all day.
I've been wearing these out and about since I first got them and I get so many compliments on them, way more than when I just wear jewelry. These really are the perfect summer accessory, and I would buy them again in a heartbeat. I think this particular brand has the widest selection of designs that I've seen so far, so I think there is something in here for everybody. And with pool parties and music festivals right around the corner these would be a great investment.
