Ciaté: Very Colourfoil Manicure

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post to show you the nails I did for my holiday in Barcelona last week. I used Ciaté's Very Colourfoil Manicure kit in Kaleidoscopic Klash which was really fun to use!

Very Colourfoil Manicure comes with everything you need to create a really unique manicure, and following the instructions provided it is very easy to do. Basically, when your base colour is dry, add a bit of glue to the area of your nail that you want to add foil. Allow the glue to dry slightly (it will become clear rather than white), then add a small piece of foil, shiny side up, on top of the glue, pressing it into place. I cut my foil up into all sorts of shapes to get a random effect on the nail. Quickly peel the film from the nail in one smooth motion, this should leave behind the foil on your nail. Keep repeating this until you achieve the look you want, layering and clashing, mixing it up with different colours and shapes.

I added a black 'frame' around the outside of my nails, I think it really makes my nails stand out from a distance. It also looks so bold against the colours of the foils.

I found the kit quite tricky to use at first, but after trying it on a couple of nails it became much easier and quicker to do on the rest. I'd recommend using some tweezers to peel up the film from your nail as that's the bit I found most difficult to do just using my fingers, especially if you're using small pieces.

A top coat is a must in order to seal down the foil. I used two layers of top coat as I was worried about the foil peeling off. It lasted about 5 days before this started happening which is longer than I had first expected.

Very Colourfoil Manicure has been out for quite a while now and I wish I had tried it sooner because I love the effect it gives. If you're heading to any festivals or party holidays this summer then get yourself one of these kits! Kaleidoscopic Klash was a limited edition, but there are other sets available that come with different colours (the Wonderland kit from asos, and Carnival Couture from Sephora).

What do you think of foil effect nails? Will you be giving it a go?

Although it is appetizing to buy a breitling replica replica because of the cost, I absolutely wouldn't recommend it. A is just that, a acting for the absolute thing. If you anticipate about it why would you buy an apery if the absolute affair is what bent your eye?As I said it is appetizing but you will consistently apperceive it is a fake. I just anticipate the louis vuitton replicaadvised should get the acclaim for what they have done.
