I've Got a New Crush - Colored Foils

Honestly given my track record with foils I didn't think these would turn out.  Imagine my happy dance when they did!!
This is Tanzanite Fire foil that I got from Dollar Nail Art.  I applied it over China Glaze Side Saddle and finished off with Sally Hansen Clear'd for Take Off .  These lasted for three days before the foil layer on my right hand started rubbing off.

While the top coat did dull the finish a bit it obviously didn't have the nasty, discoloring, wrinkling effect I have had in the past.  I wonder if it's because it's a colored foil rather than the silver I've used in the past.   I am over the moon with how it came out.  I ordered some other colors so I'm excited to try them. 

*please excuse my nasty cuticles and shorty nails.  I've been doing a bit of housework and they've suffered, unfortunately I'd removed the foils already when I went to post these pics so pretty retakes weren't an option.


  1. O M G !! This came out AMAZING!!!<33 I can't believe you used foil it is that good. I'm about do the happy dance with you! I didn't even see this foil when I ordered from DNA, it looks so cool! Like almost an underwater effect. What kind of topcoat did you use? Mine always crinkles .. =(

  2. Prettyfulz, I still can't believe it either. :) I used Sally Hansen Clear'd for Take Off that I got at Dollar Tree.

    ABOP, Thank you!!
