A2Z and J is for..

Jewel


Wow! This was a hard challenge for me to come up with a mani. As I have been doing a few nail art challenges in advance so I know I would get them done, and my brain has been frazzled with ideas for each one!
So I was thinking, do I stamp, freehand again and basically help what do I do... Then it came to me, I had a silver nail foil that suits J for Jewel perfectly.
I painted a silver base polish using Nails Inc Soho Silver, and when this was completely dry I painted foil glue over and waited for this to dry. Then working on one nail at a time applied the silver foil. 
The foil came from a set I managed to get very cheaply from a Chinese seller on ebay, and I have to say they are the best foils I have. They cover your nails really well, hardly leaving any patches. Shame they still wrinkle with a topcoat, as I'm yet to find one that doesn't destroy the foil look. So for my photos I didn't use a topcoat so I could show you all how awesome the foil is...






I know this last photo is proper blurry, and does your eyes in, but just look at those holo sparkles!!
The main hub page  is where you can see all the other awesome mani's, and take a look below for all the other J for Jewel mani's, and until next time, stay safe and much love...

    1. Thank you. As long as you let the foil glue dry completely and place the foil the right way round on the nail, even I have placed the wrong side of the foil on my nail!! Xx
