Hallo!

Born Pretty Nail Foil and Glue Review

I have finally recovered from another fit of the ills! Yay!

So here are a couple of products from Born Pretty Store that have been kindly sent to me for review!

Look at those colours! It’s so pretty!

This is the first time I have ever tried using nail foils and I’m hoping that with some practice I’ll get better at applying them!

The glue was a bit of a challenge, it kept pooling up and not drying evenly, after applying it, re applying it, swearing, sticking my fingers together then swearing some more, I came to the conclusion that the glue needed something to adhere to. I found Matte topcoat worked surprisingly well!

I also found that I needed to leave the glue a little longer than it suggested on the bottle, it was closer to 1.30/2 minutes rather than the suggested 30 seconds to one minute, I think the humidity and temperature had a lot to do with it.

I was really surprised about how much of the nail foil you get in the little plastic pot, I don’t think I’ll be running out any time soon. 🙂

Something I do feel like I have to mention is that the foil (number 165) is not holographic, it’s iridescent!

I applied the matte topcoat, glue and foil starting with my little finger, (which was pretty much perfect) as I worked towards my thumb it got more and more patchy, I really don’t know why, I was doing exactly the same thing on each nail!

The base colour I used for this mani is the lovely dark blue Queen Of Scots from A England, and the topcoat is Nails Inc 2 in 1.

I’m definitely going to practice with this nail foil a bit more! 🙂
