Happy Holidays and 2015 to you and yours!
- CND Stickey, base coat
- American Apparel, Night Sky
- Nail Foils + adhesive + scissors (I chose gold + turquoise foils)
- Seche Vite, top coat
Step 1: after applying your base coat, paint 2 coats of your navy blue. Make sure the polish is 100% dry before moving to step 2 or else the foils won’t work properly!
Step 2: once your polish is dry (this is so important, it’s worth repeating), take your foil adhesive and paint on a thin layer by your cuticles. Only put the adhesive where you want the foil to go. It goes on white (like glue) and then turns clear when it’s ready for the foil!
Step 3: cut a few squares of your foil. Then, using a corner of the gold, COLOR/FOIL SIDE UP, dab it on the right bottom corner of your nail. Then take your turquoise, COLOR/FOIL SIDE UP and do the same right next to the gold. Keep alternating until you reach the left side of your nail.
Step 4: wait about 5 minutes before sealing the deal with your top coat! And now you (and your nails) are ready to ring in 2015 in style!
