Foil transfer


Happy Saturday! I am very excited to share this foil manicure with you all! I received a roll of "foil glitter" from Born Pretty Store and couldn't wait to use it! For this mani I used Maybelline's Onyx Rush for the base and applied the foil on top.

The foil was very easy to apply and, as shown below, I only used about one square inch of the roll for one hand. Born Pretty Store has the application instructions on their website, but to semi-explain it, after applying your base color and before allowing it to fully dry, you just press the foil onto the nail and it leaves pieces on your nail. You are able to play around with it by pressing the foil onto whichever part of the nail you want and you end up with an awesome looking design.
