Nail Foil Bornprettystore review

Hi loves!

Today I'm re-reviewing some nail foil that was sent to me from Bornprettystore. I say re-reviewing because when I received it I was such a newb and really had no idea how to use it. I tried it and it was a giant fail. I saw a different method a couple months ago (totally forgot by who) and decided to try it. 

Here are the items I used.
Nail foil item #17231 
China Glaze X-ta-sea
Seche Vite top coat
A cuticule pusher
And a clean up brush

It looks like this in the little jar.

Take it out and cut a piece a couple inches in length. I think this one was about 5-6 in.

Flip it over to the non shiny side.

Apply your desired color polish in squares a little bigger than your nail.

And then we wait.

...keep waiting.

I waited about an hour. It's best to do this a day ahead so you won't be waiting around on the day you want to use it.

Once it was dry I kind of marked my "suare" and with the other end of the cuticule pusher I started peeling the edges carefully.

Look how pretty!

Apply a thin coat of the polish you used on the foil to your nails. It doesn't have to be perfect.

While it still a bit tacky apply the square you peeled to the nail. With the end of the cuticule pusher go along the edges and the cuticule to cut off the extra.

Tidy up with your clean up brush and topcoat. Sorry this photo is a bit blurry.

Tada! Final result! I love it! So perfect for spring.

And here's macro :)

And another one just because :)

I hope this helps someone. I think this is perfect for foils that have designs on them. What do you guys think? Will you be trying nail foils if you haven't already?

  1. So pretty! I hadn't heard of this method of using foil before.

    1. Thank you. I saw it once. Wish I could remember where I saw it and who did it!

  2. I didn't realize you could use foils that way with polish on the back! Love it!

    1. Thank you. I didn't know either. I'm so glad I tried it. If I only o could remember who it was and where I saw it. Dumb mommy brain! Lol

  3. This looks awesome and much easier than trying to get the foil to smooth out on the nails. Guess it's time for me to start searching out foils.

    1. It is. I tried it other ways and it wasn't going well lol.
