Foil Butterflies

Good evening all.

Hope you`ve had a great day!
Here is my new mani ->


The green sand polish used here is from Kiko Sugar Mat 643, applied in two coats.

For the butterflies I used silver nail foil. I wanted to try new method of sealing the foil because with just top coat over it it gets wrinkle. So this time I made the butterflies with the foil and before I paint the outlines, I applied a coat of Essence Colour arts base.



Then just outlined them with black acrylic paint and covered the whole decorated nails with a coat of Seche Vite top coat.
And guess what? It worked! They didn`t wrinkle that way! Yes! I`m so happy!


The only thing I`m sorry is that I didn`t took pics when there still was a sun outside to show the rainbow of the foil... But you can imagine all its beauty! :)


*EDIT:

Here they are- the same butterflies only painted with acrylic paints, no foil used here. The polish is the same and the hands are different :)

    1. Да, благодаря ти, Ели! Въпреки, че пак загубиха част от блясъка си, все пак не се набръчква като само с топ лак. :)

  2. This is just so beautiful! Looks fab!
    How did you managed to align the foil so accurately?

    1. Thanks dear! :) I applied the foil glue by hand "drawing" the wings of the butterflies. Then just outlined with black paint. :)
