As I showed you yesterday, I was in the middle of an Easter Design for my nails and I tried to be brave by attempting the nail foil which has decided to jump out at me on the vanity table .
Being the Magpie that I am and seeing it shine and glisten I quickly snatched it and wondered on how it actually worked and in the hurry I was in, I found eventually something sticky helped it to stick to my nails and so after a patchy start I decided to give it a real try today and so I have.
Feeling in a pink mood, a little romantic at heart in my pregnant state of mind, I decided to go with just one nail , a contrast nail , not too much shine but enough to be noticable.
Just take a look at how boring that plain nail looks although I am impressed with the polish itself (I will share with you which it is in an upcoming post ).
Instructions of how to use -
Here are my results-
I absolutely love the finishing effect, it looks like I have had melted silver poured over my nails and would love these in other styles , I am very pleased with how it has turned out.
I expected the foil to flake as soon as I peeled the sheet away or even fold as I applied a top coat but this was not the case as the foil stuck to the nail perfectly .
The foil was so easy to use but the application seemed a little hard for me , I think this is mainly down to the varnish I was using at first as it was not sticky enough (simply went from wet to dry in seconds so was no good for this ) .
I ended up having to use a very cheap clear topcoat instead before applying the foil on top. (I did not want to use colour) .
The size of each foil sheet is 9cm by 6cm and you only get one sheet which will do you a full set of hands but if you are like me and only like the odd finger to be contrast, then this will last a lot longer and only 39p each is a bargain .
They also do a whole range of different styles and colours of the nail foils such as the Glitter rainbow and Leopard print which look fantastic also .
You can buy these from Charliesnailart.co.uk .
Will you be giving them a try or have you already ?

I didn't even know you could get such things, the end result looks great

Your red nails look fabulous and frankly - I would not bother with the foil. It looks fine but your red nails look great on their own.
