Nail art goodies and flair

In 2012, fatjunkie started dabbling in nail art when she didn't have access to the Internet while in Cuba. She started a tumblr blog in mid-2013 to share her nail art and now has over 42k followers. fatjunkie loves to make animated nail art gifs which take hours. Her cheeseburger gif holds the record at 6 hours. You can check out her gifs at www.fatjunkienailart.com.

Fatjunkie's nail tattoo enterprise began in Vienna, Austria and the product range has expanded to include enamel pins and nail art brushes. The fatjunkie shop is based in Australia but it's a kinda nomadic and ships from various locations depending on where fatjunkie is travelling/living.

Additional policies and FAQs
FATJUNKIE NAIL TATTOOS

1. What are fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Fatjunkie nail tattoos are temporary tattoos for nails. They are sorta like nail stickers but more similar to waterslide nail decals. The difference is that with nail stickers and waterslide nail decals, the adhesive is usually underneath the image. With fatjunkie nail tattoos, the adhesive is on top of the image which is why you apply fatjunkie nail tattoos face down.

Fatjunkie nail tattoos are released as a series of designs every few month with some designs being once-off runs. The first series was released in July 2015 with the launch of the fatjunkie online shop.

2. Where are fatjunkie nail tattoos made?

Fatjunkie nail tattoos are designed in various locations around the world including Australia, Germany, Japan and the USA.

The first series of fatjunkie nail tattoos were printed in Australia and the second series was printed in China.

3. How do I apply fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Check out our gif tutorial with directions and tips here:

4. What colour nail polish should I use with fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Most fatjunkie nail tattoos are opaque which means the nail tattoos can be applied on most colours but lighter colours always work best. Please refer to product descriptions to find out if a particular set is opaque.

However, you should definitely avoid placing nail tattoos on nail polish that is a similar colour to the nail tattoo itself as this would cause the nail tattoo to blend in.

Please note some of the nail tattoos designs may incorporate transparent areas which appear white on the backing paper. When applied to nails, the transparent areas will reveal the colour of your nail polish. Which fatjunkie nail designs have transparent areas? Please refer to the product descriptions.

5. Which top coats work best with fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Fatjunkie nail tattoos have been tested with a range of top coats without any issues. The following top coats are recommended:

- OPI Top Coat
- Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat
- American Apparel Nail Polish in Clear
- American Apparel Matte Top Coat
- Essence Studio Nails Ultra Gloss Nail Shine

6. Which top coats should I avoid?

Other than the recommended top coats above, opt for regular top coats rather than specialty top coats like quick dry top coats, high shine top coats and top coats that are also base coats.

7. Can fatjunkie nail tattoos be used with gel polish?

Yes, fatjunkie nail tattoos can be used with gel polish. Gelish and Anny are recommended.

Please note after curing, gel polish leaves a sticky residue which can be removed with gel cleaners. Fatjunkie nail tattoos should be applied after the stickiness has been removed.

8. How long do fatjunkie nail tattoos last?

The life of fatjunkie nail tattoos largely depends on the quality of your nail polish and top coat. If applied correctly, fatjunkie nail tattoos last 1-6 days with acrylic nail polish. Additional layers of top coat will provide more protection.

When used with gel polish/shellac, the nail tattoos last as long as the gel polish.

9. How do I remove fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Fatjunkie nail tattoos can be removed with regular nail polish remover and gel polish remover.

10. How large are fatjunkie nail tattoos?

Fatjunkie nail tattoos are small and the size is based on small fingernails. If you have small fingernails, you will mostly likely be able to fit one image per nail and maybe two on your thumb. If your fingernails are large or long, you should be able to fit multiple images on one nail. Take a look at the nail tattoo tutorial above to get an idea of size on small nails.

11. Can I use fatjunkie nail tattoos on skin?

Fatjunkie nail tattoo can be used on skin but people with sensitive skin should avoid doing so.

12. How should fatjunkie nail tattoos be stored?

Fatjunkie nail tattoos should be stored in a sealed plastic sleeve in a cool, dry place. If left exposed, the nail tattoos may dry out. Humidity and moisture may also damage the nail tattoos.

13. Are fatjunkie nail tattoos tested on animals?

No way!

NAIL ART BRUSHES

15. What sort of nail art brushes do you sell?

The fatjunkie shop stocks brushes from Princeton Artist Brush Co's Decorative Miniature Synthetic Sable Series 3050. The fatjunkie shop are currently the only stockist of Princeton Decorative Miniature brushes in Australia. These super fine brushes are used by professional nail artists and also highly sought-after by decorative artists and painters of miniatures. Fatjunkie has spent a lot of money trying to find the best brushes for nail art and when she stumbled on these brushes in 2013, she has not used any other. In fact, she is still using the same set she first purchased back in 2013.

16. How should I care for my nail art brushes?

Princeton brushes are an investment. If used and cared for properly, your brush will last longer and perform better. Here are some tips to protect your brushes and save you money:

- Do not immerse brush in nail polish up to the ferrule (metal band). Wet polish in this area is hard to clean and even harder if it dries.
- Never leave brush soaking in nail polish, nail polish remover or water for extended periods of time.
- Never let brush rest on its hair end.
- Always store brushes with its plastic hair protector.
- Do not allow the silicon handle to come into contact with nail polish remover. The silicon will disintegrate if left in nail polish remover.
- After use:

* remove nail polish with nail polish remover;
* rinse hairs with lukewarm water;
* remove excess water;
* reshape hairs into place with fingers; and
* stand upright to dry.

17. Who is Princeton Artist Brush Co?

Princeton Artist Brush Co is one of the largest brush markers in North America. Since 1992, artist brushes have been the sole focus of Princeton. Princeton makes one thing - the best quality, most fairly priced artist brushes available today.

18. Where are Princeton brushes made?

Princeton brushes are made in China.

19. What are fatjunkie pins?

NAIL WRAPS

21. How do I apply fatjunkie nail wraps?

A GIF tutorial is coming soon but for now here are some written directions:

- Select nail wrap. Choose a size slightly smaller than your nail for a better fit.
- Peel nail wrap from sheet and place rounded end towards your cuticle.
- Firmly press on nail wrap. If necessary, gently pull nail wrap so that it conforms to the shape of your nail.
- File excess in a downward motion and shape to nail.
- Seal with top coat for additional protection.
