Rainbow Foil Nails with Gel Polish
I’ve been wanting to play with nail art transfer foils again for a while. I’ve only used them one other time, you can see that mani here. I had an idea in my head of a rainbow pattern with foils, though it didn’t turn out exactly as I had imagined when I sat down to do it. I still love the way it turned out though – it’s very colorful and fun.
For this mani I prepped as usual and started with two coats of Couture Little Black Dress. After curing the second coat, I took my foils and applied them to the tacky layer of the polish which acted like the glue. If your gel polish isn’t sticky enough to do this you can try applying a very thin coat of foundation gel over your color (cure it) as the glue, or you can use actual foil glue. Once I was happy with my foil application, I applied a layer of top coat over all the nails and cured. Then I applied the square gold studs using my gel foundation as the glue and curing for several seconds, and I top coated over the studs once more. What do you think?
