I need to start by saying that I am not a morning person... I hate mornings, I'm grumpy. This morning is no exception (except I am over the grump part). I heard my boyfriend in the bathroom and thought that he must have turned the hallway light on... I'm laying in bed thinking "Why did he turn that damn light on? He'd better turn that effing thing off pretty soon or I'm gonna flip out. I can hear him coming to bed and he hasn't turned that damn light off... OMG WHY IS THAT EFFING LIGHT STILL ON???" at which point I peeked my one eye open to see that alas, the hallway light is not on but instead it is morning... and the sun is on... and that is not his fault. But that doesnt stop me from being pissed about it for the next hour; my mood foiling every attempt of mine to re-enter dreamland. Le sigh.
So I woke up at 6:30am on my day off and here I am. That being said, this is one of the best mornings I have ever had!!!
Want to re-create it? (Obviously not the shitty part...)
Im sitting at my desk with no pants... because no pants are the best kind of pants, with a fluffly blanket wrapped about myself, eating dried mango (YUMNESS this is my favorite dried fruit... if you love sweets this is for you!), listening to music that is probably best suited to the night (Explicit language warning!):
Rocking out and trying out a foil sent to me for review by KKCenterHk!
So First I did a bit of filing... then cleaned my cuticles... then used a buffer block to buff my nails super smooth!
My base coat for today is Orly Bonder, then I painted all my nails with one carefully applied coat of CND Silver Chrome.
Then a layer of foil glue, I prefer Ciate's glue but you can buy a really good sized bottle of glue with a nice brush in a set with whatever foil you want from KKCenterHk; so for this, I used their glue. Wait for the glue to dry clear. Try to apply it smooth and dont touch it to anything... it helps to have some squares cut from the foil before you start applying so there's less chance to mess up.
You can see the glue starting to dry here.
If you have never used foil before know that you must lay the design/color face up... My first time didnt go so well and I couldnt figure out why! Its much easier and more effective when you lay the plain side on your nail.
When the glue dries you lay the foil on the nail and press down...
So when you lay the foil down, I like to start on the edge of my nail and work my way across, pushing it down and smoothing it out as I go.
and here we go!
This is called Shiny Silver and can be found here or by searching NNAIL-E24. It is currently sold out but you can search a bunch of their other REALLY cool foil designs. PLUS you can get 10% off your order by using the code NAILFREAK
Yippee for coupons right?
By the way, this is without topcoat... Seche Vite totally messed this up, it looked terrible after, EEK!!!
Overall, I really liked this product, they send you a large amount of the foil, and the glue works really well and dries to clear fairly quickly.
Let me know what you think! Have you tried foils before?
