It’s been almost two years since I tried nail foil for the first time. If you need to refresh our first (slightly painful) encounter in your memory, here it is. Since then the situation has changed dramatically, from barely managing to get that stubborn foil to stick to my nails I’ve progressed to the level of nail foil ninja. Truly, practice makes it perfect!
So as soon as I saw the amazing colours of the new nail foil sets that have just arrived in the SoNailicious Boutique, I knew I have to give myself a foil manicure. In fact, I’ve worn two different foil nail designs in the last 3 days. The first one – the vintage gold (you might have it on my Snapchat: SoNailicious), and the second is this nail foil gradient. I went a bit overboard with the electric blue foil but the colour is so stunning I don’t mind, as long as it still resembles the gradient ;)
HOW-TO: To get the look, first paint all nails in nude nail colour, wait till it’s completely dry and apply nail glue*. Then apply nail art foil – build it up from the nail bed to achieve the gradient effect. Allow your manicure to dry for 5 – 10 minutes and then apply high gloss top coat.
*Use any nail glue you have or some paper glues, like PVA, can be also suitable.
Wearing: Double Band Ring.
Now over to you!
Have you tried using nail foil for your nail designs? And how do you like this unusual Electric Blue nail foil gradient?
