FabLab Glitter Tattoo & Nail Art kits....

A little while ago my girls and I had a girly couple of hours trying out a couple of FabLab kits that we were sent to review....Ellie loves anything with glitter and Becky loves nail varnish so these were perfect!

FabLab is a range of activity kits that enable girls to explore, play and experiment with their style in a fun and safe way. FabLab cosmetics are 100% non-toxic and designed specifically for children.

This was the kit Ellie and I were most excited about....We had never tried anything like this and they looked like great fun! Of course we have tried fake tattoos but these are something special.....

The kit contained:

27 x Tattoo Stencils
4 x Pots of Body Glitter (Various Colours)
1 x Pot of Cosmetic Glue
1 x Soft Paint Brush
1 x Stiff Paint Brush
8 Page Instruction Manual

This kit has everything you need to make fabulous glittery, shimmery, multi-coloured tattoos that can last up to 7 days! 

You stick the stencil to where ever you want the tattoo and then paint the glue on, leave it for 30 seconds and then dab the glitter on with one of the brushes. When you have filled the stencil carefully peel it off.....You don't have to leave it to dry like we first though....Oops. We soon got the hang of it!

The end results were brilliant....We played around with quite a few of the tattoos and each one looked better and better when we got the hang of putting them on. There is no knack to it. You just get better the more you do....

The glitter tattoos can be washed off easily with soap and warm water. Ellie left hers on for a couple of days. The only reason she washed them off is because she was going back to school after the Easter holidays. They would have lasted much longer....

This is is a fantastic set! It's fun, creative and the tattoos are very pretty. I could imagine them going down well at birthday parties or sleepovers.....

FabLab Nail Art kit.

Follow the detailed colour illustrated activity guide and learn how to create 6 stunning nail designs. This kit includes 7 different nail polishes plus some heart shaped sprinkles!

The kit contained:

7x Solvent Free Varnishes (6 Colours + 1 Clear)
1 x Bag of Nail Sprinkles (Hearts)
2 x Sheets of Nail Stickers
1 x Fine Paint Brush (For Detailing)
1 x Foam Toe Separator

1 x Emery Board

I am always reluctant to give my girls "real" nail varnish....It stains when spilt and can be a nightmare to get off but this is perfect for children.....

My girls had fantastic fun with it and I would happily let them play/put it on without me worrying....Ellie loved the little hearts on her nails and Becky loved the colour of hers. 

This is perfect for if the girls want to decorate their nails without having to remove with a struggle for school....It peels off easily if you decide you don't want to wear it anymore....

These are both fantastic sets for children....The recommended age for these sets are 8+ but I think younger children would love them too with plenty of supervision.....

Each kit costs £9.99 and I think that is a great price for them....

We were sent these kits free of charge in exchange for this blog post....
