Foil Marbling- My Anniversary Nails a New Experiment

 Hello guys!!! So it was second marriage anniversary on 30 November (how time flies by!!!) and I wore this mani for the occasion.
This was my new experiment with foils and I call it Foil Marbling!!! Yessss FOIL MARBLING!!!! (Lols). It is just like dry marbling but to add on the effect I added foil to it. The colors I have used for the mani are Zoya 'Lulu' which is a nice nude shade, Elle 18 '#53' which is a blue color and i have used silver foil and foil glue for sticking the foil.  
   
The steps are simple and is done the same way as done in dry marbling. After applying the base coat, I applied a generous amount of the nude color polish and then I applied 2-3 dots of blue color polish and foil glue randomly while the nude color was still wet. With the marbling tool (you can use any brush like a striping brush or tooth pick) I mixed the colors well (they can be mixed in any way you like).  I then let it dry completely, the foil glue is opaque when its wet but when it dries it becomes transparent, the glue should be completely dry before proceeding on to next step otherwise the foil will not stick well. I then took a silver color foil and pressed it on the nails (you would have to press it many times for the foil to stick), the areas where there was foil glue the foil stuck on it and then I applied the topcoat to seal in the design.
The image above is taken in the night so is dark. Hope you like my experiment and if you try this then do let me know and post the pics on my FB page.
Please do leave a comment below to tell me what you fell about the design.

Thanks

xoxo
