My kitty polish peeled off. Litter-ally. Yeah lame play on words there, but in all seriousness the polish peeled off of all of my nails but my thumbs. Not exactly what I wanted to wake up to. So after I got my kids on the school bus I decided to stop being intimidated by nail foils and try them. They have been sitting in my nail tool box for over a month. I kept looking at them, thinking I really ought to try those out, and walking away thinking they would be too much work. Nope I was WRONG! They were actually pretty easy, though they are not as cut and dry as everyone on YouTube seems to make them out to be.
I sat and watched I think 4 or 5 videos before attempting this. I would recommend anyone who tries these for the first time to do the same. I got some good tips but think I may post a small tutorial on how to get these on better once I figure it out myself. For a first try these turned out OK. If I had done something with a pattern I would have been disappointed.
With just the foils.
Tube of foil and the polish I laid down before I put the foils on. Should have used a purple. Live and learn. I got my foil from Dollarnailart.com China Glaze: Cowardly Lyin' and Geisha Plum Foil
Then because I thought the foil looked a bit tacky with all the bald spots and broken areas, I added halloween stamping to it. Now it looks more intentional with my voodoo guy and bloody drips.
