The Digit-al Dozen does New and Improved - Day 3 - Foil and Dots

Hi everyone! So today is Day 3 of New and Improved week for The Digit-al Dozen! I decided to pull out some foils and experiment a bit using them over a whole nail...or close!

I usually use foils in small touches or designs but I thought why not try replacing polish with foil and apply them over the whole of my nail combined with some negative space. So I started out by applying foil adhesive on all of my nails, leaving a space at the base. I then applied my foil and added dots of Sinful Colors Black on Black with a dotting tool.

I finished with a coat of Tammy Taylor A+ topcoat which I swear usually works perfectly with foils for me. Yet on a larger surface, it did dull and crackle the foil slightly. I should have used a water-based one like I sometimes do but the wear is terrible on them in my experience. I kind of like how this mani looks anyway but I'll admit I was a little disappointed. I'll call this mani more 'new' than 'improved'! The texture does remind me of chocolate wrappers, like on Ferrero Rochers!

  1. It looks great! I usually only apply foils on small spaces but never fully on the nails.
