31DC2013 Day 8 - Metallic

Today is Day 8 of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge with the theme of Metallic nails. What could be more metallic than nail foils? I have not gotten to play with nail foils to much, but I recently got the Best Glue Ever (yup, that's what it is called) and I'm so in love. I'm sure you'll be seeing more foiled manis in the future, but here is one for today...

For this manicure I started out with OPI Incognito in Sausalito, a dark nearly black blue cream. I will have full swatches for you when I return from vacay! For the foil, I watered down a few drops of the Best Glue Ever and then applied it with a fan brush in a random pattern. When the glue dried, I applied the foil over it. The foil I used is  from The Born Pretty Store...

I just love how this turned out! Really couldn't stop staring at it. And by the way Best Glue Ever, is really the best glue ever! So much easier to apply nail foils than with nail polish. No more mess or frustration! Hence why you'll be seeing more foil manis in the future ;)

What do you think of this look? Have you tried nail foils yet?

P.S. This post is pre-scheduled while I'm on vacation. I may not be able to respond to comments until I return, but I greatly appreciate them and will respond as soon as I return!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Looks awesome! I've never worked with nail foil before, but as I really do love the look, maybe I should give it a try.

  2. I'm not really into foils, but this mani makes me want to try them. Very pretty!

  3. I'm not really into foils but I LOVE your mani!!

  4. Gorgeous manicure!

  5. This looks awesome! I only have one nail foil, and I couldn't get it to work for me. Will have to try again!

  6. This look is amazing! I really need to try out foils..

  7. Looks awesome! I love the pattern you made. :-) I've only tried one nail foil, and loved it, so now I wonder why I haven't bought more...

  8. Thank you so much everyone! This was my second attempt at nail foils and I love how it turned out! I'm glad that you like it as well :)

    @Agalaya and Swaafie, you definitely should at least give them a try! :)

    @KayJay and Nailderella, thank you so much! I'm glad you like it! I know not everyone is into foils and I'm just starting to enjoy them :)

    @Angie, The glue made all the difference! I tried them with just nail polish before and it was a mess for me!

    @Lani Maverick, that's what I'm wondering now too! Need to get more :)

  9. This is lovely. What top coat can you use that won't shrink the foil?


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
