I recently purchased a load of nail foils off ebay without really knowing what they were, I assumed they were the same as nail wraps but oh how wrong I was! So after trying unsuccessfully to use them over wet nail polish or nail glue I did some research I should have done before I bought the foils, got the proper Nail Foil glue and off I went.
For those not in the know, nail foils are like rub on transfers for your nails. They come in every colour and pattern under the sun and can be used to cover full nails or as an accent or embellishment. Nail Polish Queen’s has an in-depth guide to the intricacies of applying nail foils here. They are quite different to the plastic wraps I’d used before, not as easy really but they are cheaper, easier to create your own designs and effects with plus they remind me of primary school in all it’s PVA glue and holographic foil paper collage glory.
Nail Foils can create some stunning effects but they are definitely trickier than polish! Mine look good but once you get close up you can see bit where the foil hasn’t quite taken or ridges from my cack handed and impatient application, especially on my right hand. Though I am determined to keep practing as it’s opened up a whole new world of nails art and due to the wonders of getting a cheap job lot on ebay I have quite a few foils to keep me going! I’m currently enamoured with the gradient holographic effect I’ve gone for here using some of the gradient foil I got in my ebay job lot.

Friday Fright - Creature Feature: Nosferatu
It’s time for another Friday Fright, I missed the last one due to the terror of wisdom teeth but I am back for this week’s with theme of ‘Creature Feature – who scares you the most?”
I must admit I’m a bit stumped for this one. I just don’t seem to have seen many creature feature films, or I have a terrible memory (both probably). Nothing much stands out as a creepy monster to end all creepy…

As the sun is sporadically shining round here I’ve been in the mood for some bright nails! I’m not really a fan of pastels or sickly neons so when the sun rears its head I tend to reach for deep, bright and bold shades.
I’ve been loving, from left to right,
Model’s Own in ‘Feeling Blue’ (shown with a neon orange gel pen dotted design), Sally Hansen ‘Fiery Island’, Barry M Gelly ‘Blueberry’, OPI ‘Need sunglasses?’ (shown with an animal print design) and Model’s Own Hyper Gel in ‘Turquoise Gloss’.
What are you favourite shades for the sunshine?
