If you love bright, shiny and festive nails, then foiling nail art is your perfect choice. It is easy to apply, looks amazing and it is a great way to bring any mani to the next level. Foiling typically starts with a colored base, then you add a foil material to it, either in a full-coverage fashion or as a design. This type of nail art looks like it came straight from a professional salon.
Foiling nail art is perfect for those special occasions when you want to create a show-stopping, sparkly effect on your nails. It can be used to add pizzazz to your nails all year round and is great for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or proms. You can also use foiling for everyday looks too.
In order to do foiling, you need a base color polish, some clear top coat, foil adhesive, and the desired nail foil color. The specific applications of each product depend on the type of nail foils that you are using. For example, if you are using standard nail art foils, then you will need to use a top coat to help the pieces stick to your nail. On the other hand, if you are using nail wraps, then you can use a stickier top coat or the special adhesive that comes with it to help the pieces adhere to your nail.
Once you have all your materials, you can begin the application process. Start off by painting your nails with your desired base color. Give that time to dry and then add a very light layer of your top coat. Wait for the top coat to completely dry and then apply the foil. For standard nail foils, use your finger to press down and make sure the foil has completely adhered to the nail. Then, with nail wraps, you can use a tweezer to help with the application process. And, once the desired pieces are applied, use a top coat to help keep the pieces in place.
Foiling nail art is a fun and easy way to create beautiful nails right at home. It may take a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, you will be able to create one-of-a-kind manicures. So, if you want to take your mani to the next level, look no further than foiling nail art.
