Showing posts with label foil

Hello lovelies,
I'm so excited to finally show you these pictures! I got inspired by a beautiful gold necklace you'll see a bit later in the pics. I must admit, I LOVED this manicure on me! But what I loved even more are the pictures and how they came out. Obviously I applied a filter on them but I think it fits!
For this manicure I've used OPI Alpine Snow, A England Camelot, gold foil (from Rio Beauty), black striping tape. I've also used a dotting tool and foil glue. I did not use topcoat to seal the manicure. Topcoat would crinkle the foil which I didn't want.
I've created a tutorial so you can all try this look. If you'll recreate please credit back to me :)

Hello lovelies,

I love colourful manicures and this one is just spot on! It's a rainbow sponge gradient finished off with black lace foil.

Firstly I've painted my nails with OPI Alpine snow which makes the colours nice an vivid. Then I've used a corner of a makeup sponge to apply following polishes: China Glaze Sunshine Pop, China Glaze For Audrey, OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI?, China Glaze Dance Baby, China Glaze Poinsettia. I purposely went for a grainy look otherwise I would paint stripes of colours on the sponge to achieve more blended look. I've sealed the colours with a coat of Seche Vite topcoat.

When it all dried I've applied a thin layer of foil glue and let it dry. Then I applied a black lace pattern foil (I got mine from Rio Beauty) and sealed again with topcoat. Lace foils are a bit problematic as sometimes they don't stick properly. I found the result good enough this time :)

Hope you like it!
