Playing with Foils - a Born Pretty Store Review

Pin It
I'm officially in love with foils!!

Born Pretty Store sent me a couple of rolls in blue(#7) and brown(#12) to try out. You get approx. 113 x 2.5cm per pottle.

I was sort of sceptical that I would be able to achieve such an easy and clean transfer, especially since I didn't have any foil glue, but they turned out to be amazingly easy to use and I'll be buying myself more colours in the future.

Wanna see what I did with them?

Elevation Polish Grotte et Cascade with blue and brown foil

I was already wearing Elevation Grotte et Cascade and it happily co-ordinated well with the brown foil, so I added one more layer of GeC and when it was semi-dry, sort of tacky; I placed a piece of the blue foil on to my nail and rubbed my finger over it in a smooth, firm action. I lifted the piece of foiled and viola, it had transferred very cleanly.

I repeated this step using the brown foil and for each nail I tried to muck around with the pattern I was creating. I finished with a layer of Seche Vite, which didn't effect the foil at all. I'm thrilled with the results, and I can see myself using the foil to cover an entire nail - the bright blue would make for an amazing mani! Talk about quick and easy nail art.

  1. So cool!! I was just looking at the foils the other day, I am going to have to buy some and give it a try soon. I love the way it came out.

  2. that is seriously stunning! it would be even cooler in this blue and a green

  3. I love the look of foils but they never come out near as neat as yours. This combination looks amazing!
