Ciate Very Colourfoil Manicure Review and Application -- Wonderland (Foil Nail Art)

I bought this at Sephora for $19 US Dollars.
This kit includes:
- Foil Fix Glue
- Nail Polish (paint pot) in Cream Soda, a nice soft gray color.
- 30 Colourfoil sheets in 6 different colors.

The Colourfoil Sheets.
They're very, very thin! It's so hard to put it back into the packaging because it's so thin.

Application Process:
First off, you need to paint your nails with 2 coats of polish. 
2 coats of Cream Soda. (No flash)

With Flash.

Then, apply a thin coat of the glue wherever you would like the Colourfoil to be.
Wait for the glue to become clear (tacky) and apply the Colourfoil over the tacky glue. Press down the Colourfoil firmly onto your nail. 

Pull off the Colourfoil in one quick motion...and you end up with something like this. 


Continue and repeat with other Colourfoils. 


How my nails turned out with no top coat. 

After one coat of top coat.

Though it does say to seal your manicure with a Top Coat, I prefer it with none. It seems to lose it's shine after a top coat is applied.

Overall, I really liked the idea of this. I've always wanted to try Nail Foil and this kit was perfect for that.  Buy it here at Sephora. 

What do you think of this nail polish trend?

    1. Neah, cupcakes aren't healthy but we all deserve a sweet treat sometimes, right?;) Lol, actually when I'm really angry I eat peanut butter with the spoon xD I'll try to temperate myself from now on, I promise.
      I know, people don't think of healthy thinking when they hear about healthy lifestyle. It's sad :( Hopefully, many will be more open minded about the healthy lifestyle in the near future ^^

  30. Thank you for your lovely comment! I usually do digital illustrations but I used to painting and (hand) drawing a lot in the past. Ive learn graphic softwares at home by trial and error, at the begining it seems to be complicated but after a few weeks its getting better, just be patient:) Now I work with the graphic tablet in AI photoshop and AI illustrator. xx
