Easy Foil Nail Tutorial - Wet Nails/Lava Nails/Really Cool Nails

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Finally! I used the nail foil that I won from It's So Easy Nails Art a couple of weeks ago. This was the first time I'd ever tried it and I really love them.

I was not going for a full nail effect which is why I painted my nails a solid color first.

  1. Paint Nails with a glossy black. I used JulieG Black Sheep. Top it off with one layer of Seche Vite or your favorite top coat.
  2. Use the foil glue and paint it on your nail. Because you have a glossy surface, it's going to look just the way it does in the 2nd step picture. Use your brush to move the glue around until you are satisfied.
  3. When the glue is dry and clear, cut off a piece of the nail foil and cover your entire nail pressing down firm enough that the foil sticks.
  4. Gently remove the foil and go over any bare spots you might have. Add one more layer of top coat and you're done!

I really love the way these turned out. Have you tried nail foils before?

  1. This looks really beautiful. I can never get foils to turn out so well one me.

    I have had lots of foils, but never had any decent results until lately. I found that you can skip the glue and just use a polish tacky dry.

    1. I may try that. Since I have the glue I'll use it, but when I run out, I'm sure I'll try alternative methods. =)

  2. WOW! These are gorgeous! I've not seen a nail foil design I liked yet, but that seems to have tipped the scale for me *__*

  3. Great tutorial and design!! Must try foil :D x
