Another quick introduction today because it’s late….whoops. But I have my final Lady Queen review to share with you guys…
So, let’s get to the nails!
Here’s what I used:
This is the only product of the group that I had trouble working with, which kind of stinks because this is the one that I was most looking forward to trying. But, yeah, nail foils. I followed Kelli Marissa‘s (aka The Nail Polish Challenge) tutorial on how to apply foils without nail glue, and at first everything was looking awesome! I didn’t add topcoat, because I remember some people saying that it ruins the shiny effect, but when I applied my cuticle balm to take photos it was like the foil was literally wiping off my nail /: By the time I had noticed what was happening my polish was too dry to add on more foil. I’m going to say that my inexperience with foils is probably what caused most of my troubles, so I’m sure people who work with them often would get along fine with this. If you are one of those bloggers and/or nail artists who does beautiful things with this, let me know of any tips and/or secrets on getting this to work. I don’t want to give up haha!
- Start by applying three coats of Leslie.
- Then apply liquid latex around your nails.
- Use the watercolor technique to add the other polishes on.
- Peel off the latex and clean up.
- Apply a layer of Glossy Glam.
- Once your topcoat reaches the point where it’s kind of dry (aka you can touch it without leaving a fingerprint) place the foil over your nail and rub it with the dotting tool. I found that I had to rub the foil pretty hard which left some dents in the polish.
- Clean up.
This wasn’t exactly the look I was going for with these nails, but the final outcome is still pretty neat! I’ll definitely keep playing around with this product until I get it to work better. The original pattern is too pretty to let it just sit unused haha. The good news is that you get quite a bit of product for only $2, so there’s room for experimenting!
