Again another first! Here's how they turned out -
Shiny! So along with the foils you'll need some foil adhesive too, which I also got from sparkly-nails -
They were £4.85 all together. And considering that the adhesive will last me for a long long time, probably a bargain.
- So first off I used one basecoat as I wasn't using any colour, so my nails weren't likely to stain
- Then I applied a thin coat of the nail adhesive and waited a few minutes for it to go tacky -
- Then, I cut off a section of foil and gently laid it on top of my nail -
- Next I just rubbed over the foil with a cotton bud, being careful not to crease the foil.
- Top coat to finish.
The great thing about these foils is that if they don't quite cover right, you can just re-lay the foil on the nail, rub it again with the cotton bud and you can patch the nail up easy peasy.
I think foils give a really nice effect, and even though it my first go, I found them quite easy to do! Ofcourse there is an infinite range of colours and patterns available. And they're good fun too :)
