NOTE: This mani did last a full week, and just as precaution, I applied a topcoat on day 3.

Nail Foils: Black Gold & Rhinestones
Not sure if you saw my earlier post Nail Experiment: Gold Leaf Nails. The mani didn't last too long, and since then I've discover foils that were meant to be used for manicures! They are called nail foils, and you can purchase them here for a very reasonable price. I now have a bunch of these nail foils, and I can't wait to try them all. This mani is my first, I decided to go with one that had a pattern, so it hide any imperfections easier. And then of course I added the bling to my ring fingers with black rhinestones applied over the entire nail. and TIP: Apply a base color to match the foil you are using, that way if the foil doesn't completely cover, you can't see the blemish anyway! I forgot to take pics as I was doing the mani, but I will definitely do a step by step tutorial next time :)
