Holographic Leaf/Feather Nail Art Foils - Born Pretty Store Review

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing on this fine Monday? I hope you a had a great weekend? We had family over to celebrate Mr Bravo's birthday yesterday – even though his birthday was in September while we were in England. It was a belated catch up :) It was pretty fun! Today I have some gorgeous holographic-ness to share with you. Remember how my camera usually hates all holographic things? Well...It still does and it was a real fun experiment with endless pictures and very minimal results. These are 'Holographic Leaf/Feather Nail Art Foils' from the Born Pretty Store. 

I just... I'm sorry for the picture quality. I struggled hard to get the holo to show...Forgive me!

Are we seeing some holographic magic here?



These beautiful nail art foils come on one long sheet and are approximately 100cm long and 4cm in width. They feature multiple styles of leaves (For example some look long and feathery and others look more like maple leaves) and the pattern is repeated through out the foil. The rest of the foil is transparent in between. The holo effect on these foils is really strong – it shows more vividly on the nails as I move my hand then the picture allows me to demonstrate.

One thing I notice... I know to normally place foils with any holo parts facing down on the nail and the dull side of the foil facing upwards. However both sides where full of holographic wonders so I needed a little gluey piece of paper to test which way I would need to be placing my foil pieces.

I also used the method I mentioned recently – to preserve the holo and not have it shrink or become dull when adding my top coat on top I first added another layer of my beauty glue on top the foil. Once that had gone transparent I added my top coat. The holo lasted better than any previous attempts I had made.

I really like the pattern and pretty holographic (how many more times must I say that word in one post?) touch - I think these foils would look super cute for winter manicures.

What do you guys think of these holographic nail foils? Have you used foils before? - 
There is going to be 3 days (from the 28th) of Halloween nail art. This year I actually had fun with it!!

Have a lovely day!
Love
Ithi

  2. Holos are really hard to capture. You did well. I think I loved over white more than black :)

    1. I know, right?! Thank you so much. I think I prefer it on white too, It has a very different look :) I think maybe the holo bounces off of white easier too. xx

    1. Bubica it is actually not too difficult. You need a special kind of glue. Its basically a matter of getting the glue to the right point (no longer white) putting the foil on and rubbing until the pattern transfers. Thank you! <3

  6. I really like the holographic leaves :) I haven't used a foil in a while. Ya holos are hard to photograph... I usually turn off all the lights in the room and just use my camera flash for holos but it's not always color accurate that way

    1. You should find some! I really enjoy using them, they took a bit of getting used to the first time but its not too difficult. You just need some beauty glue that goes from white to transparent when dry. I'd love to see what type of foils you would use! xx
