New to foil art?
Try this technique and look like a pro! The beauty of combining Get Tacky and nail foils is that it can really make your nail art stand out. Here's how...
STEP 1: PREP + BASE
Apply a medium amount (not to thick or thin) over the entire nail being carefull. not to get any incontact with the skin. Cure for 15-30 seconds (curing times will differ depending on the strength of your lamp and the thickness you have applied) please test the best curing time for you.
STEP 2: APPLY FOIL
The only tricky part of this technique is choosing which foil design to go for!
Firstly cut to size and place the foil design side down to transfer the foil effect onto your nail. Then carefully peel away; wherever the Get Tacky gel is, the foil will attach itself to.
STEP 3: TOP COAT
Now set your beautiful designs by applying a Top Coat Gel Polish (or regular one if using normal polish), personally i always double coat to ensure strength. Make sure you cap the free edge – this means sweeping the topcoat brush along the edge of the nail tip to create a seal to avoid chips.
Finish off with a cuticle oil massaged around the nail bed to rehydrate and add a further, final layer of super-shine.
