Born Pretty Store Foil Review and Nail Art

Hello dolls!!! How you all have been??? I have been waiting for my nails to grow and the loooooooooong wait is now over :). I had got nail foils from Born Pretty Store to be reviewed, so I decided to start my nail arts by reviewing the product. So here is my review.   
I am a huge fan of nail foils because of the look they create- All shiny and different. Nail art foils can be bought from different sites but when I got the foil from Born Pretty Store to review, I was on seventh heaven. It was like my dream came true!!!  :D
The foils come in 27 awesome shades and for particular review I have used the nail art foil golden in color. 

The foil comes nicely packed in a small and easy to carry container and in the form of a band.

Container of the foil
The nail art foil is very easy to use and no foil glue is required to stick the foil on the nails, all you need is a nail polish. To apply the foil first you need to apply a nail polish, be it of any color (I have used a clear top coat) and let it dry and then again apply the same polish but now do not let it dry completely, wait till it becomes tacky i.e. when you press on it, it should leave the fingerprint impression. Now taking the foil and keeping shiny side up, rub it gently over the tacky nail polish (q tip can also be used to rub). The foil pattern will stick to your nails leaving a transparent area on the foil band. Apply a top coat and seal in the design. 

Tip- While applying the topcoat is that apply it in quick strokes as the color of the foil will start wearing off if you keep on applying in various strokes. 

I had seen videos in which the nail artist have applied foils to their whole nails with the help of the foil glue and I was curious to do the same thing but using this technique and foil by BPS, and to my amazement, it really worked!!! Though it was not achieved in one go and some space was left but I retouched it with the foil again and it worked perfectly fine!!!! Below are the pictures of the same 

So all in all the foils will work perfectly, provided you let the polish get tacky before application of foil, otherwise the foil will not stick nicely.

I also did the following nail art using the foil. 
The polishes I used are-
1. Lakme white Polish (#08)
2. L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Vernis- L'Or Incandescent (#824). The polish is black in color packed with golden glitter.
3. China Glaze Neon- Pink Voltage, In the limelight and Celtic Sun.

Apply base coat, let it dry, paint your nails white in color, create an ombre using different combinations of the neons, place striping tape diagonally on the nails, on the lower end apply the L'Or Incandescent polish and on the upper end apply the foil using the steps mentioned above. Pull of the tape and apply a topcoat in fast 2-3 strokes.

  4. Hi Divya, I saw your comment on my blog about the nail art pen from Born Pretty Store... I didn't have any trouble getting it to work, the ink on mine started to come out as soon as it touched my nails! But if yours really doesn't work, you should contact them and ask what they can do about it :)
    Hope this was helpful!
