31 Day Challenge Day 8 - Metallic


Yes I did. I decided to take another stab at foils for my metallic nails. This happens to be a cheetah print foil, purchased on dollarnailart.com for $1 of course. They are okay once I got the hang of it. You have to let that glue dry just right then they are a breeze, practically fall of the paper onto your nails. The problem occurs of course when you go to put on a top coat. People give Seche Vite a bad rap but I tried it on one hand and a Revlon top coat on the other. Clearly the Seche Vite on shrank less and was still very shiny, the other was dull and matte with shrinkage. Under the foil I prepped the nail with Julep Felicity, (awful formula) I'm about to quit Julep altogether, their polishes are a huge disappointment for me.

Show your love to the other challengers:
