Born Pretty Store Nail Foils

Today I would like to show you my very first attempt at using nail foils. A while ago, I received three different foils for review from the Born Pretty Store. I delayed trying them out because I assumed these needed special foil glue and frankly I was a bit intimidated. I finally realized that nail glue is optional and got over my fear to try them all. Sadly, I lost the photos for two of the manicures when my computer crashed so I will have to play with those again. At least my first one survived and I can share it with you today...

I chose to use a metallic base of Zoya Bobbi underneath the foil, figuring that if I did not get complete coverage with the foil, it would not be too obvious where the foil ended and the metallic polish began. After Bobbi was completely dry, I added a clear coat and waited until it was almost dry, but still tacky to the touch. I then simply pressed random sections of the foil onto the nail. Turns out it is actually rather simple and not something to fear. The result I think is pretty fun...

A bit of a closeup... a graffiti look?

Here are the foils I got for review. The one in the front (foil #27) was used for this manicure. I will show you the other two (foil #6 and #17) when I get a chance to redo the manicures...

  2. It is very interesting..i use foil but have never combinated it! Later when i'll go to home i try to show my work with it

  3. @Olechka, It is fun to play around with the different foils! They can easily be combined to create a whole array of different looks :)
