So I figured I would relieve you from some ‘nads and talk about my experience with foils with all y’all. So I thought they looked really cool if it worked and it could help me from wanting to get a Minx mani. So I go to TransDesign.com and get a bunch of supplies. It consisted of a primer (base coat: which is basically a glue like consistency and dries very tacky), the foil, and sealer (topcoat).
The application process wasn’t bad. I waited extra long for the base coat to dry before applying the foil, which helps with having it peel off in one neat sheet. Then I put the topcoat on. The topcoat makes it less smooth and in fact, it crinkled on me. I was mildly disappointed, but it still looked cool:
As you can see, it’s a messy swatch, so after that I decided to take a shower and wash off the yucky stuff on the side. After a 20 minute shower, here’s how it looked:
That much tipwear over 1 shower?! Unless you have someone that baths you, I don’t think this will last on most people. How disappointing. Though it doesn’t cost too much, don’t waste your money on this… at least not for the purpose I used it for.
