Fierce Red Tips


Today I have another nail foil mani. I like how the foils can transform your simple mani into something so gorgeous. I love the tips so much in this mani that I might do more looks like this in the future. Click here if you want to check my last post on nail foils.

For this, I applied one coat of Zoya Bela. After it dried, I made a french tip using Essie Fishnet Stocking. Then using a Konad image plate M25 and RA 118 (picture of the plates at bottom) I stamped the roses using Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red and drew some leaves using Holly Green acrylic paintOn the tips, I applied Best Glue Ever which I thinned down with water to almost 30-40% as it is easy to apply when thinned down. After the glue dried (it becomes transparent) I applied the metallic red nail foil. Then using a Q-tip I rubbed over the foil so that it attaches itself properly. After that I applied Wet N Wild top coat because for some reason fast drying top coat does not work well with the foils, at least not for me. In the end I applied Seche Vite top coat on all the fingers.
