Modern baroque

That is what I’m going with. My manicure started to go wrong, so I decided on a new approach: Modern baroque. Modern because I don’t have a damask stamp.

playing with gold foil

Over the top I stamped with a-england Tristan as it seems the scattered holos from the lovely Adina are great for stamping, as I’ve seen on other bloggers manicure’s. Now the stamping is not the best at all. Some nails the image printed smudged, and on others I missed bits off. Really can’t wait for my new stampers to arrive. The gold foil was meant to go on in a set design, then that epically failed when it transferred onto part of the nail that had no glue on -_-. Not cool man, not cool.

Question do you find different colour foils react differently to topcoat? My blue/green foil remains the same with seche vite, but with this gold foil it completely took away the shine and stripped some of it down to silver :(.

Thank you :).
