* Press Sample *

So I know I have been away from my blog for a while but the good news is I am in school doing cooking and baking also known as Hospitality/Tourism. I am just going to jump right into this one as I was super excited for this one not only because it's my first time with foils but I haven't painted my nails in so long that this was so much fun! :)

This is the end result and I was super pleased with the results. I absolutely love foils as they are so unique, there's endless possibilities with foils. Here I just painted my nails with a base coat and then some black polish. I chose the black because I really wanted the colours of the foils to pop!

So this is the nail art foil I got from Born Pretty Store. They have a nice collection of foils for only $2.99 a piece! Thats an incredible deal considering how much comes in the container and because you really only use a tiny piece for every manicure.

Heres a preview of some of their nail art foils as of today October 20, 2012.

I had some of this printing foil around and its basically the same thing as the nail art foil, theres a clear film and the design comes off when you transfer it onto something.

I should mention that I didn't have any nail art foil glue. I had found some tutorials online that showed just using any clear polish as the glue. 

You basically put the clear polish where you want the design to transfer onto. You could do your entire nail or just little spots like I did here. You have to wait until the clear polish is almost dry so its still tacky. You have to play with it and get it right or the design won't transfer onto your nail.

Now you can either top coat it but a lot of people in this case when using foils do not top coat it. Because it is a foil it will wrinkle a little and not look the same when you put a topcoat on top of it. There are top coats out there that do not affect the foils but you would have to look into that because I am not sure which ones work best.

I had a lot of fun playing with these foils and I cant wait to use them again and get some more with different colours and designs!

Overall Thoughts
