Nail foils review - such an cool effect!
This is the third review I've done for Born Pretty Store recently, and I have saved the best for last! These nails are done with nail foils, which you can find here. I chose three colours, #3, #10 and #21. I love the metallic look they give your nails - I'm so stocking up on them! You can use them just for highlighting parts of the nail art too, which is awesome. Robin Moses has done that in a couple of tutorials I've watched of hers.
I haven't done a tutorial for these, but I might make one on YouTube at some point. I needed one, I failed terribly at these to begin with! You can apply them just with nail polish, but it wasn't working for me so I gave up in annoyance. I was quite disappointed until I decided to give it another shot a few days later and realised that I was pressing them on on the wrong side... so embarrassing! You're meant to apply them on the non-patterned side, in case you're wondering ☺. Just put polish on, wait until it's half dry, press on a bit of foil and then rip it off. Pressing harder worked best, I found.
As always, you can buy these from Born Pretty Store for $2.99 each (free shipping, yay!). There's heaps in the rolls, I won't be running out any time soon. I cut all of mine up into little squares and put them in some mini drawers - it was a bit of a pain to put them back in the plastic jar they came in after using them. I'm so excited to try more things with these!
If you buy some, don't forget to use my Born Pretty discount code to get 10% off. I've got another giveaway coming from them too!
Hope you like today's nail art! I'm scheduling this post as I'm going away for a few days, it still feels weird not publishing it straight away!
