Nail foil - Silver Lace

Another foil post. Today I put it on with a special reason - to see how long it will last. I've heard some complaints about foils not being durable. So let's check that out and put nail foil to the test.

I'll keep this manicure on for as long as it will be wearable. Small chips are possible, since no nail polish lasts for even two days on my nails. I'll add one coat of clear nail polish daily.

This time I decided to apply foil over color nail polish. I used a base coat and 2 coats of nail polish: China Glaze - Midnight Ride. Speaking of it, here it is on it's own.

I let the polish dry completely and then covered nails with adhesive (working one nail at a time) and after it became clear I added foil (named Silver Lace). Here is what it looks like:

P. S.: Don't forget you can enlarge every photo by clicking on it. ;)

Thanks for looking!


  1. Kaj lahko... pokazes tehniko tega? Niti sanja se mi ne kako to naredis! Je pa enostavno cudovito!

  2. Z veseljem bom pokazala kako se dela s folijo. Trenutno ne morem, ker preizkušam kako dolgo bo tale zdržala. Bom pa zagotovo! V prejšnji objavi s folijo sem napisala korake. Je precej preprosto. Je pa na YouTube dosti videov na to temo.

    It would be my pleasure to show you how to work with foil. I just have to wait for the current ''foil test'' to pass. I described steps in previous foil post. You can also find plenty foiling videos on YouTube.

  3. If you will have any extra time you can make a post about your daily treatment with nails, how do you file them, what products you would be a great post for all to see, because you have great nails...bye

  4. It's in my plan. Thanks for suggestion!
