So I'm going to warn you, today's post is not filled with beautiful and amazing nail art. This weeks prompt for wrath was "get mad trying, again, that technique you know it's going to be a fail."

I decided to go ahead and review these nail foils from the Born Pretty Store, which I had tried once in the past, and went horribly, and thought maybe this time, it might go a little smoother.

It really just freaking did not at all. I almost didn't want to post these, but I told myself that I should because it really does fit in with the prompt.

Here is the problem with these nail foils, the Born Pretty store states that you can just apply them to regular polish, when it's not wet but still tacky, and peel away quickly. It's difficult to place the foil onto the nail at the exact moment that it's still tacky enough to stick, but not too tacky that it peels the polish away.

For my ring finger, that worked rather well, but for everything else, it just made a complete mess. No ladies and gentlemen, I am not that terrible at applying polish, the nail foils peeled away the black polish on my tips.

I hate to give a negative review, but this just did not work for me, and I had such high hopes. My assumption is that you really need a specific glue to apply these foils, and I bet if I had the proper glue, it would work really well.

Look how pretty it looks inside the container!

If only I had gotten it to turn out that awesome on the nail.

These Nail Art Roll Foils are $2.99 a roll and you get quite a bit. I just really would recommend getting the glue that is needed for this to work. If I ever end up buying the glue and getting this to work better, I will definitely do a post for it.

  1. The same happened to me! I went out and bought a really intense nail glue and it didn't work either (it just kind of burned through my nails..) I wonder if BPS sells a specific nail glue. Because I see full nail foils everywhere! We must be missing something.

    1. We must be! I was really bummed because the foils looked so awesome!
      I think there is nail foil glue, but I can't find any at the BPS. I did find some on ebay, however:

  2. I have the ciaté kit that comes with a glue. It works really well! Bummer about the bps foils because they are way cheaper.

  3. That might be the greatest prompt ever. xD Hope it didn't rage you out too much!
