Foil Explosion !!!

Today I want to share a couple of different looks with you. I had extra time to play with my nails and I've been wanting to try out the rest of my foils. I know many of you find foils difficult to work with, so I tried out the non-metallic foils which are a lot easier to apply. All of the foils were purchased by me from Dollar Nail Art.

The first look is called White Marble. I used WnW white as a base to achieve this elegant look. Love, love, love!!!
Fifth Avenue is a blue/grey foil with a slight shimmer. I must admit I tried this one out because of the name.

Smokey silver is just that, hot and sizzling!!! It is a metallic foil but its not as bright as the holographic foils. There is no rainbow effect, which I like. I found it while looking for a non-holographic gold for my teacher. Well I didn't find a bland gold but I discovered this hot silver! Very minx like, don't you think?



That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!!

  4. thanks so much Thriszha. my biggest tip is to allow the glue to dry completely (2-3min), then rub while holding the foil in place, until all of it is transferred to the nail.

  20. YouKnow, thanks for following me!!!

    Cel, you'll get it soon. It took me a while to get the hang of it.

    AnnKlin's, I really like the roses too, probably because it reminds me of DH :)

    KarenD, I'll be giving away foils again very soon because I know they are so hard to find/order.
