Before I decided to try this design, I wasn’t aware that the stripes are called nail foil and if your looking for the ultra thin ones, just add stripe to the end of that google search. Their not expensive but before I purchased it, I decided to experiment with supplies I already had available at home. To improvise, I used aluminum foil to cut into really thin stripes and for glue, I depended on the polish to get a little dry and tacky. The tackiness made it like glue which made the foil stripes stick with only a few layers of coating. Then lastly, sealed with a clear top coat…
These are the finished results! Enjoy and let me know what you think of this design!
Simple to design & easy to create on your own. With just a little bit of patience, it can make all the difference.
For each nail, the black dot was placed sporadically. Not one follows the exact placement to make them exciting to look at. I wanted to have fun on some of the nails on the right hand so I dragged a very sharp brush through the dot to create a distorted effect for a touch of creativity.
November’s just flying by and now its Thanksgiving week. I can recall a time when I was in middle school and believing how slow time went and now I just gasp at how fast I’m going through my calender’s. I was talking to a friend earlier this week about the major time difference between LA and New York City.
My boyfriend and I spend little over a week in the West Coast, going to LA, Catalina Island, Baja California and Mexico (we were on a cruise 😉 lol) But that was my first experience in the West Coast and OH MAN did it feel like a month instead of a week. It just felt a lot longer than what we were used too and I kind of liked the change.
