Nail Foil NOTD

 I got these foils a while ago from a giveaway
that Born Pretty Store had.

Products used for application

 I cleaned my nail with alcohol and let it dry before I applied the self adhesive foil.

I used a cuticle pusher to smooth out the foil. Or atleast I tried.
The problem is that my nails have a strong C-curve and that makes application of foils difficult.

Someone with more "flat" nails will have an easier application.

I applied Sally Hansen Lift Preventer trying to seal the foil. But the problem was that I was not able to apply the foil smoothly to my nails. So I had the edges catching on everything and I ended ripping the foils off after 1 day of wear. Came off easily. I don't know if I was supposed to apply heat to the foil after applying it. The instructions did not say.

As I liked the design of the foil I saved the pieces I cut of and did a Pedi with the "left overs". I still have some left and I will try to apply them on my tips sort of like a "French Manicure"

And I urge you NOT to click the toe-picture.
Or you will have nightmares for the rest of your life. Let's just leave it at that.

Watch my YouTube Video
on how I applied the Foils

And that is a "Piece of Pie" - Thank you for reading!


  1. the design of the foil looks cute, too bad they came off that quickly.

  2. Yeah I liked them too. But I had to take them off. Could not stand it when they catch on everything.
