Once upon a time, Dior released some temporary tattoos more similar to gold foil than your standard kid-friendly appliqué. They were a cross between a semi-permanent stickers and really overt body glitter—just the right amount of fun to say, “I don't take myself too seriously' but also, “I don't always wear body makeup, but when I do, it's a Dior temporary tattoo.”

Trends, you may know, are cyclical...or maybe it's the weather? Tank tops provide a greater canvas on which to slap something gold and shiny, yet the Dior tats were special edition and only available for a limited time. Enter Google, which turned up the very similar (and very affordable) Flash Tattoos. Shine on, dear readers.
