Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers! I hope you're all having a fabulous Friday and looking forward to a great weekend! Today, I have something I tried for you that I've never tried before, nail foils! I bought these on the website Dollar Nail Art which has tons of nail art supplies! Now, I purposely left these pictures very messy so you can see what the finished product looks like if you decide to try there! Now, without further ado, on to the foils!
Per usual, I've been doing my "normal" manicure lately of doing each hand a different color and doing an accent nail of the opposite color! So to do these nail foils, first you paint your nails with a color that's close to the foil color, since the foils are basically like temporary tattoos that get laid down on your nail and peeled off! I forgot to take a picture of the bases but the were FACE Stockholm #66 and a Zoya purple that I can't remember! I have tons of Zoya purples so forgive me. The Foils I used were Caribbean Tides and Laser Optics. Laser Optics did NOT want to cooperate with me (you can barely see the cool design and flashes of red in it) but I love how Caribbean Tides looked! Let's see it close up:
As you can see close up, the application can be a bit messy (it really wanted to stick to my cuticles!) and there are some spots that the design didn't stick (hence the need for a color underneath) and it got a bit crinkly. However for my first try, I'm not too upset about it! Here is a look at my entire haul from Dollar Nail Art:
9 different foils - several of which are weekend only because they are BRIGHT and in your face! I also got more striping tape in two different sizes, some black and gold square studs and some Laser Lace which I'm still not entire sure how it works! And lastly, I loved this picture when I took it on Instagram (my name is lacqueredlover on there and feel free to follow me and leave your name in the comments so I can follow you back!)
So there you have it! Another Fun Friday. And, be sure to check back later because there might be another Fun Friday post coming up!
What did you think of this manicure? Have you tried foils yet?
