Have you ever tried Nail Foils? (ft. Epic Nail)

I don't know about you (but I'm feeling twenty-two~) , but I'm not the most creative person when it comes to my nails. When I'm feeling really creative, I layer glitter on top of another colour, so I was definitely intrigued when I was approached by a representative from Epic Nail asking if I wanted to try one of their NAIL FOIL KITS.


My first thought was 'Uh...what are nail foils?' but the pictures of the foils looked so pretty so I decided to try out their KALEIDOSCOPE KIT

The kit contains:
- Instructions on different ways you can apply the nail foils


- A bottle of foil glue
- 6 different foils
- 10 cuticle sticks 




The kaleidoscope kit is appropriately named as the foil colours are bright and fun with a kaleidoscopic pattern.

I applied the nail foils using the transfer application.

Step 1: Start off with a base colour. (Or you could apply it directly to your naked nail)

I used a pink polish (Rimmel's Hot Shot).

Step 2: Apply a thin layer of foil glue and wait until it dries clear.

Step 3: Press a piece of foil onto your nail, with the coloured part facing upwards. 

Don't forget to press on the sides to get an even application.


Step 4: Remove the foil and apply a topcoat.

[These can be removed with acetone or a normal nail polish remover.]

And.... here's the result!



Isn't it pretty? It's so shiny and metallic! And it was so quick and easy, definitely a possibility if you're in a hurry for a night out.

Each basic nail foil kit retails for AUD$73.98 and they are currently 50% off and Epic Nail is offering my readers free standard shipping for orders over $30. Simply enter the code "BLOGFRAMES" at the checkout (expires 31 Dec).

I forgot to mention that Epic Nail is an Australian-based company too!

Have you ever tried nail foils? What do you think?

  1. Ooh these look so pretty! I've never tried nail foils before but I have tried nail wrap/stickers and haven't been impressed. These on the other hand sound like a winner. :)
