Hi Girls, I am having a ‘Foil Phase’! I have strong urge to use foils and explore their usage in every mani. It’s not that I recently got these foils, no. I had them sitting on the shelf for 2 years. God knows how I suddenly remembered about them and now I can’t get enough of it.
I have been looking in my old accessory boxes to dig out some ignored foils. And I could locate few sparkly holo unused foils. I decided to use the pink one; it looked so shiny and pretty. I was not sure if I would be able to get a complete transfer of foil on my nails as I am Foil Newbie. With fingers crossed, I proceeded.
I painted all nails except accent with Sally Hansen ‘Pink Satin’. It’s the color nearest to the foil, so it would camouflage any bald spots from foil transfer. On my accent I painted Black as I had some other plan for this.
I then stamped with Nicole Diary stamping plate ND 101 which I got for review. They have newly launched their shop at Amazon & AliExpress and keep wide variety of quality nail products. I liked their plates since the designs are good and etching is great.
I used Clear Stamper from BornPretty Store to accurately place the roses on my nails, managing to stamp on the bald spots if any. On my accent I used a pink metallic sticker that I had just bought a day before. I am so glad I was able to use it within days as opposed to century of gestation period for my new buys to move from shelve to nails. Oh, I had hard time while applying top coat. The Seche Vite just made my holo foil crinkle and lifeless. I got so upset seeing my foil roses turn pale infront my eyes. What top coat do you girls use for foil mani?
