Hello,

Gel Polish Toenails Design
This design is made with gel polishes except for stripes which are made with hard gel.
The black dots decorations are very thin so I embeded them straight in top coat.

I always prefer to have some small decorations on my nails so I added yellow glittery flower nail stickers.

Toenails design with nail art transfer foil

June 12th, 2014

Hello,
today I will show you a photos of my toenails design with nail art transfer foil.

 
Toenails with nail art transfer foil
For this design I used a silver holographic transfer foil. Here is the photo of it taken indoors and without any artificial light.

Nail Art Transfer Foil - Silver

When I took the foil outside to the very strong sunlight I couldn’t believe that it shines so intense. I would be so happy if this effect appear on the nails.

Nail Art Transfer Foil
So I was very excited about this transfer foil but unfortunately the end effect was not as good as I expected.
Aplication of the foil was easy. I didn’t have a special nail art foil adhesive so I was transfering it straight onto the nail polish. I painted the nails with a base colour and then added a top coat. When the last coat was nearly dry I pressed the foil shiny side up on the nail surface and the pattern transfered to the nail.
The pieces of the foil were reflecting light really nice until I sealed the nail with the top coat. My top coat made the foil dull and it looked like normal tin foil for kitchen use. I read on the other nail blogs that many of the top coats are making nail art foil cloudy. I also read that some water based top coats are working good with nail foil. I must try to find some good sealer because I am definitely not giving up with this foils.
So I tried to do my pedi once again but this time using uv gel top coat as a sealer and the effect was much better but still some shininess disappeared.

 
The best holo effect on my nails is seen in a sunshine or in an artificial light. In daylight but without sunshine it looks just like a silver foil. I still like it.

 
Here is a photo of my toenails taken outside in a daylight without a flash and without sunshine.

Here is a photo which actually shows foil holo effect. It is taken indoors with the natural light and the camera flash.

For this design I used Astor Fashion Studio nail polish in Soft Poppy (236). Unfortunately the photos do not represent the real colour of this polish. When I was taking the photos there were a thunder clouds coming and the sunlight was a bit strange. I guess this is the reason why I couldn’t catch the real colour. In fact Soft Poppy is a mix of a coral with pink and is very beautiful and vibrant. I really love it and use it a lot.

 
I will definitelly buy more colours of the nail art transfer foil and try to find a top coat which works good with it.
