So the Born Pretty Store asked me to review these nail foils. I ordered them in this holography gold, an electric blue and a really cool green. Now I've seen people use them before and I though "This should be easy". It was trying but I did give it a valiant first attempt.
The instructions were prepair you nails like you normally would. File, basecoat, the works. Whatever you do to prep for a manicure. Next add 2 coats of polish(I used H&M Plum and Cherry). Let the first coat dry and then let the second coat dry(but not all the way). Next you gently place the foil silver side down on your nail and rub it on you nail(I used my finger). Finally remove the foil and la vola! Topcoat, done.
Now I did everything they said. I even watched the video on the site. But I still had some problems. 1)I didn't didn't let it dry enough the first time. So the polish came off when removing the foil. 2)Next I waited too long and the foil didn't even stick. 3)Although not that noticeable in the photos some of the polish was smudged in the process. But topcoat made it a lot less obvious.
Now I won't call this a fail but I do think I can get this looking better if I try again. Maybe with a different polish. Anyways I didn't measure how much was in each but on the website it says they contain 113cm of foil. Which is just over 3.5 feet. And considering I only used about an inch I have plenty to practice with.
Favourite out of the bunch.
