Nail foils – an easy DIY manicure

I wanted to share a new find with you, I was introduced to nails foils by my friend Catherine. I decided to give it a try and I’m thrilled by the results. Nails foils is a quick solution if you want your nails to look good for a special event.

I used Yardley’s nail foils available at Clicks. I selected the black lace look, but when I got home the foils were more shiny and bling than I expected. I therefore used the nail foil on only one finger, and painted the remaining fingers as usual.

The guidelines on the pack is clear and easy to follow. I did however find that the glue it’s not all that strong. After I applied the foils, I added some nail glue to make them stick. This will also help prevent the foil from lifting up at the ends, making your manicure last longer.

I wore the nail foil manicure for three days and the actual foils still look fine by the time I removed them. In fact, I had to change my manicure because the nail polish was chipping.

Nail foils is a great way to quickly change your look for a night out. I like the variety of patterns and looks that you can get, it’s definitely not something that you’ll be able to do at home. I’m going to keep an eye out for more patterns and variations and I will keep you updated 🙂
