Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few months ago.
I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!
Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!
And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!
I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. 🙂
For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go. Whilst this polish doesn’t dry in 60 seconds (or 120, or 180…), I do like it!
Hot Black To Go is almost a one-coater (I need to try if it stamps!), and it’s perfect for foil manis! 🙂 But let’s move on… for this mani I used a colourful foil (with a somewhat psychedelic pattern) which I applied several ‘layers’ of.
How does this work? It’s super easy. All you have to do is press the foils onto the near-dry-yet-still-tacky nail polish and peel them off again – it’s almost like ripping off a band aid! 😀
I think this mani turned out alright. It’s considerably more colourful than intended, but I couldn’t help myself. I just kept adding to it! Also, many apologies for the so-so picture. Foil manis can be difficult to capture on camera, and they can look ‘rough’ in pictures – but they’ll always look better in real life.
I’ll do a tutorial on foils shortly! It’s going to be fun, I promise. And it’s super easy to do! Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Hi there! I haven’t done a foil mani in ages – and I don’t even know why. So, finally, I did another one!
At first I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 001 Evil. Not too long ago, when I couldn’t find my black Revlon Colorstay polish, I used this polish for stamping. However, 001 Evil is better for actual nail painting than for stamping.
Since I have many leftover foils in different colours, choosing the right colours wasn’t easy. I started with a gold foil which made the mani look christmassey right away. So to avoid an unseasonably christmassey finish, I used blue and fuchsia foils too.
I’m happy with how the mani turned out. And I got several compliments which made me realise I need to do foil manis more often. I might do another one in a few days. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thank for reading! 🙂
Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago when my nails were shorter. I’m only doing the post now because I didn’t save the photo where I’d normally save it.
But let’s start! I used Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab as my base colour. I really like this black polish because it doesn’t dry too quickly (great for foils).
I let the polish dry to the point where it would be tacky – and then I started to press different foils (rainbow, gold, blue, purple, red, green, pink, etc) onto my nails. I repeated this process until all the nails looked like they were covered in unicorn puke. 😀
Then I let the mani dry for a while before I applied one coat of regular clear polish.
And this is the finished mani. I’m sorry the nails look messy in the photo – I should have cleaned up around the cuticles before taking the photo. The blurriness is real though – that’s what the mani looked like. 🙂 Sorry about the word puke. But I looked at the finished mani and I thought ‘this is what unicorn puke must look like’. There it was again! Oops! Anyway, thanks for stopping by. The next post will be a regular product review, I promise!
Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the foil mani I did the other day.
I had to do something with my nails but I didn’t have much time as it was quite late already and I knew I’d be waking up with sheet marks the next day if I painted my nails.
So I went for an all-over rainbow mani using leftover bits from foils in all colours.
The foil mani looks a bit patchy and uneven in the photo. However, in real life it was the exact opposite – even and without any visible bald spots.
I’ve done countless foil manis which looked much, much better, but I think this mani looks kind of cute. 🙂 I think I will do another rainbow mani soon.
