Elven Gold9:36 AM
Awhile back I got a TON of nail supplies in the mail. I mean, a TON. Decals, stickers, foils, lazer foils, striping tape...you name it. Foils were one thing I was really excited and yet terrified to use! I've heard it's tricky, it takes practice, it can be a mess...so I picked the foil I liked the LEAST from the ones I had received and gave it a go on one nail. It came out rather nicely though I did learn some things from round one. The most important thing I learned: make sure there's glue on every surface of the nail!! No glue = no foil. And there's no going back if you mess up. Anyway a few tries later I felt I had a good handle on it so I decided to incorporate it into a mani. The execution of this manicure isn't the problem. It 's the concept. The foil wasn't as gold as I thought it was and the gold I used at the base of my nails wasn't so much shiny as sparkly. So it looks a little wonky. But it made it 24 hours still which is a miracle given that it's foil and matte!!
Enjoy and thanks for following!! Have you ever used nail foils?
