Nail Foils - update

COMMENTS: I realized it would probably be helpful to show how my nail foils are holding up. I applied them on Sunday afternoon and took these photos this morning (Tuesday).  I did throw on another layer of topcoat on Sunday evening. Last night, I spent about an hour washing up dishes, pots and pans from all my cooking over the weekend, and I don't use gloves to wash. Here is what they look like now:

My right hand - which takes the most abuse - mostly tipwear on my index nail.

My left hand - again some tipwear on the index, but not as much as on the right.


Still looks pretty nice, and I've gotten quite a few compliments (though it's hard to explain to people that it's not nail polish...). I'll probably take it off tonight though - I've got that itch to see something different on my nails

    I got my foils from http://dollarnailart.com. This is the only place I've ordered, and I'm not sure if they ship internationally.

    There are foils also available from http://foilsonline.com/ which I believe is based in the UK.

    There may be other sources out there, including some nail/beauty
    supply stores, but these are the only two I know of for sure.

    Yes I know how it's hard to explain that and after people look at you as if you were crazy to put paper on your nails!!

  7. I always wanted to try some foils myself. Did you paint your nails with a black polish first?

    I painted my nails with a OPI -
    Glitzerland, a cool-toned gold polish first. I could have used black
    as well though.
