Nail Foil Design

Vrlo zanimljiva stvarcica za nokte, koja fenomenalno izgleda, je folija za nokte koju sam dobila na recenziju sa sajta KKCenterHK. Folija je stigla sa lepkom koji je upakovan kao lak za nokte. Duzina folije je 150cm a sirina 4cm. Cena samo folije je 7.69 USD dolara, a folija sa lepkom kosta 12 dolara. Ova koju sam ja odabrala je siva, holografska sa tackicama. Na sajtu stoji pod nazivom Silver Glitter Hidden Pattern Nail Foil Transfer, proizvodjaca N Nail.

Very interesting nail art thingy, that looks fantastic on, is nail foil I got for review from site KKCenterHK. Foil came with glue packed in nail polish bottle. Nail foil is 150cm long and 4cm wide. Only foil costs 7.69 USD dollars and foil with glue is 12 dollars. The one I got is silver, holographic foil with dots. On site you can find it under name Silver Glitter Hidden Pattern Nail Foil Transfer, by N Nail.



Foliju isprobavam od kad sam je dobila, nekoliko dana, i bas sam se namucila. Rezultatom i dalje nisam zadovoljna, ali mislim da je ovo najbolje sto sam uspela do sada. Posluzila sam se videom koji su oni napravili, kako se folija koristi.  Jedino mi nije bilo jasno zasto nanose obican lak i to u dva sloja. Taj korak sam preskocila. Kao bazu sam koristila Rimmel Nail Rescue. Takodje sam probala Rimmel NR i kao nadlak i jos Essence Top Coat iz Fruity kolekcije, ali su oba matirala foliju i nekako je razmazala. To vise nije bilo to, vise se nije presijavala. Ne znam da li je to slucaj samo s ovom folijom ili lakovima. Takodje trajnost ove folije bez nadlaka se moze brojati u satima. Lepak se ne osusi do kraja, vec uvek ostane malo lepljiv i jednostavno sta god da radite folija ce brzo iskrzati. Ako imate neki savet sto se nadlaka tice, ako ste probali, ostavite mi u komentarima, ja ne preporucujem ove koje sam ja probala kao nadlak. Kao baza svaki lak ce posluziti, najbolje bezbojan da bi prava lepota folije dosla do izrazaja ali verujem da mozete koristiti i lak u boji s tim da ce krajnji rezultat biti nesto tamniji.

I've been trying out this foil since I got It, for a few days, and I had trouble learning how to apply it. I'm still not very happy with the result but It's the best I've done for now. I used the video they made on how to apply nail foil. The only thing I don't understand is why they used two coats of regular nail polish before applying foil, I skipped that step. As a base I used Rimmel Nail Rescue. Also I tried it as a top coat and Essence Top Coat from Fruity collection, but both did not work. They made foil matte and not holographic anymore. Also, without top coat this manicure will last you only for few hours, It seems like glue never gets completely dry and when you do things foil just scrapes off. It might last long with some other top coat that won't destroy the foil. You can use any clear polish as a base so foil can show off the best, but you can also use any regular nail polish only the result will be darker. 



Prvo sam nanela bazni lak i sacekala par minuta da se osusi. Zatim sam nanela lepak koji je dosao uz foliju u sto je moguce ravnomernijem sloju. Lepak menja boju iz bele u providnu i tad postaje lepljiv i spreman za foliju. Foliju sam isekla na velicinu noktiju, pritisla po sredini a zatim od sredine pritiskala ka spolja da bi se folija sto manje savijala i pravila nabore. Proces sam ovog puta radila malo duze u nadi da ce se lepse preneti uzorak i jeste se lepse preneo. Na kraju samo odlepite foliju. 

First I've applied base coat and waited a few minutes for it to dry. Then I've applied the glue as even as possible and when It got from white to transparent I've applied the foil on top, pressed it on the center of the nail and then on the sides. Do this for a minute or two and then remove the foil. 


Dobra strana je da se i folija i lepak vrlo efikasno otklanjaju acetonom. Losa je da je trajnost folije bez nadlaka nikakva a moguce je i da ja negde gresim. Na sajtu mozete pogledati sve uzorke folija, svi su jako lepi, ja sam se jedva odlucila. Takodje foliju mozete koristiti i na nekim predmetima kao ukras a umesto lepka mozete koristiti i bezbojan lak koji ce dati iste rezultate. 

The good side is that you can easily remove the foil and the glue with acetone. The bad side is lasting on nails without top coat. On the site you can see all the foils they offer, I think they are very beautiful, I had a problem to chose one. Also you can use this foil on other stuff as a decoration and If you don't have the glue, any clear polish will work just as fine.
