This design is for Jen’s and Bettina’s weekly Spring trends theme (“Frühlingstrends”) from “Polished with love” and “Lacquervictim”.
My lazy brain sometimes just lacks of inspiration and having a theme to think about always helps to get the ideas flowing. 😛
This week’s theme is “Violet Nails” and I immediately knew what I wanted to try out: Nail Foils.
I recently purchased a set with a few rolls of foil, adhesive and topcoat from the BornPrettyStore.
As my base color I used two coats of Ciaté “Sugar Plum” on all of my nails.
Then I applied the milky adhesive on the full nail on my thumb, index and ring finger and just half of the nail on my middle and pinky finger. I waited until the surface cleared again and then pressed the foil , design down, onto the nail.
For the transition on my middle and pinky finger I added a silver holographic stripe (BeYu “Silver Illusion”) with a striper brush.
The set came with a topcoat but I just could not get myself to apply it because it smelled soooo bad of chemicals! That is why I went with my usual Essence BTGN and the foil did not wrinkle or lost any shine, like I was afraid it would, yay lucky me! 😉
So what do you think?
