Foiled by a tree: Holiday nail art

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

I have a love/hate relationship with nail art foil. I love it, and it usually hates me. However, I had an idea and I just had to try it.

I decided to create a simple, abstract gold Christmas tree over a deep red polish. I am oh-so-pleased with the results!

I started out with two coats of Sheswai Honeyfox. It is the perfect shade of red - at least I think so. Then I used a nail foil glue and painted a swishy line back and forth. (Yes, that's a technical term.) The glue I used is the kind that dries clear and stays tacky. I let it dry until completely clear and pressed a small piece of Salon Perfect Nail Foils to the nail. I rubbed my finger over the top to make sure it was adhered to the nail well. I peeled off the foil and peeked (I was afraid to look.) But it worked well! 

Then I decided I couldn't leave well enough alone and tried to add "icicles." I like it much better without the icicles.

What do you think? This was so easy and the end result is simple and elegant.
