#TGPNPC ~ Untried Nail Art Supply

Hello Dahlings!
Have you ever had one of those days (or weeks)
where nothing goes horribly wrong
but nothing goes particularly well either?
I can't say this week has been horrible.
I did manage to score Smitten Polish Radiant Orchid
as well as OohLaLacquer's new neon holos,
a bunch of Sally Hansen retired previously unavailable Chromes
and 8 out of 10 of SH's new Color Foils.
(Sally Hansen released NEW chromes!!!!!)
Plus She Sells Seashells had kitty charms &
The Devil Wears Polish had an early Memorial Weekend sale.
So it wasn't a bad week at all!
I did however lean towards minor suckage in da nail art department.
 I decided to try applying craft foil to my nails.
I started with a coat of Sally Hansen Slick Black.
I sponged on 2 coats of foil glue,
letting the glue 'dry' between coats.
(This type of glue 'dries' sticky so da foil can be applied.)
I then lay da printed mylar over one nail at a time
& gently rubbed it with da flat end of a cutie stick
until da foil was on my nail rather than da mylar.
I've seen other's posts on this technique
& they all agree that tc tends to crinkle da foil.
However, not using tc guarantees that da foil will rub off.
So I added a coat of Seche Vite & it didn't crinkle it too badly.
 I don't like my powder room lighting for pics,
but it does show da pattern of da foil.
 I almost like how my thumb turned out.
I may or may not try this again...I never say never.
Next up ~ Untried Stamping Plate
(I have high hopes for this one, but we'll see what happens. LOL)
>^. .^<
 I thinks I likes here, in your yarn basket, under da table... long as you let me pretend you don't know I'm here.
Thanks for stopping by!
Please go show da lovins to da other Pirates!

  1. Neon Holos!!! Neon Holos!!! I want to see the neon holos next!!! Pretty, pretty please!!!!!

    And the new SH chromes!!! But first the neon holos!!!

    1. The neon holos haven't arrived yet, they were pre-ordered, but I'll have some of the SH CF chromes on FB today. LOL

  2. It's possible I'm crazy. Maybe even likely. But I like this, and I'd do it on purpose! :)

    1. I luvs ya anyway! LOL I have other foils I'd like to try. This one sort of lost something in translation...

  3. ooo I like it. Apparently if you apply the nail foil glue on top if the foils it stops topcoat shrinkage

    1. Oooo...I didn't know that! I'll have to try it next time & see if it helps. <3
