Nail foil - Ultra Violet

Here's something new: Nail Foils!!! :D I've been waiting for this purchase for a whole month. One month of *painful* waiting if I may add. There's a lot of online stores you can buy them. Since I'm new to this I can't really recommend any special place for purchase.

My first order included 9 different foils and first one I'm going to show you is Ultra Violet. How do nail foils work you ask? Simple.

Step 1: Add basecoat to your nails. Wait for it to dry.
Step 2: Add one thin coat of adhesive and wait few minutes for it to become clear.
Step 3: Add foil and rub it on the nail with tool (nail cuticle pusher, Q-tip ... ).
Step 4: Seal it with a topcoat.

My foiling skills aren't too good as you can see. But I'm planning on getting better. ;) What do you think?

Thanks for looking!


  1. Just perfect! I have to try the foils! Looks so cool ;)

  2. Hi, there! It is really perfect. Interesting foils. Should try it my self. (melanie)

  3. hello ! I love you blog ! me too I use nail foils I like that ! but mine crackled with a top coat :( visit my nail-art blog if you want :) my last article is abour red foils

  4. Those are gorgeous! Thank you so much for posting.

    And if you don't mind, can you please tell me what top coat you used? I've tried several, and they all leave my foils looking wrinkly =/

  5. Thank you for commenting! I used Essence Maximum Wear top coat. It's just a cheap drugstore top coat, nothing special. Maybe you don't wait enough time for adhesive to dry... I don't know why would it wrinkle...

  6. i love this so much... honestly.. i really dont know how to use nail foils for i havent have a chance to use it on my nails.. i only have lots of nail decals & stickers.. hehehe... what kind of adhesive u're using... ohhh.. pls email me at thanks so much

  7. how long did you leave the adhesive to dry? mine goes clear but still doesnt hold the foil??

  8. Hey, Kalindi! I leave the adhesive for about a minute - until it becomes clear. Maybe your adhesive isn't good... Try another one. :)

  9. thank you - yes i had to leave it for 10 min before the foil would stick right. well got it from ebay so cant complain! next time ill look for special fx lookslike that is a good one. anyway love that foil in the pics goingto look for some!
