Summer Swirls And Butterflies - Freehand With Foil

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? Do you have any nice plans this weekend? I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family – I'm making the most of it while I can! Next weekend we fly back to Holland. Today I am showing you some nail foils (in c-09) from The Born Pretty Store. I actually purchased these myself at the beginning of the year and if I am honest, I was scared to use them; I had a few attempts and it didn't go too well but I am so happy with this manicure! If I had to wait to show them to you then I am glad because this turned out way better then my previous attempts!

This manicure is so simple but looks much more complex, I think. I began with three coats of Sinful Colors 'I'm So Nude' on all my nails and once dried I added a very small amount of OPI's 'Snowflakes In The Air' for a little bit of sparkle. I then used my white Oumaxi paint and my holy bamboo brush to create some swirls. I sealed with a top coat and when I was truly sure it was dry added beauty glue to my nail – once it had become transparent I added a small piece of the butterfly foil on top, smoothed it out with a q-tip and gently scraped at it with the end of my cuticle pusher.
Once the foil easily removed I completed the manicure with my Catrice top coat.

I am really happy with how this turned out and my eyes are happy to see this manicure. I love the bright colours of the foil and the subtle glitter that pops through when in sunlight.
This foil comes in a small tube pot and has so much foil inside, 100cm in length and 3cm wide.

What do you think of my foil and freehand combo? Have you tried any foils?
Have a fantastic weekend!
