Does anyone have any tips on foiling, anytime I try it. The slightest knock off a nail will remove it.

I've tried a tiny amount of glue and different kinds of sealers but nothing seems to keep it on.

What sealers are you using? I use a sealer suitable for metallics and then put a top coat over that, not a problem with it if its completely covered with sealer and top coat

Thanks,

The sealer I got is the one with the foil, I'll try the top coat instead. Does anyone know if Special FX foil kits can be bought anywhere outside the UK. QVC won't ship out of the UK, the goods are considered flamable

Totally mad, i know, but it works!

If you spray a small amount of hairspray over the nails prior to sealing, it helps prevent the "crocodile effect" that can happen when you top coat.

Unfortunately foil does not often last longer than about 1 - 2 weeks but the effects are stunning.

Professional Nails came out this morning and they have put a whole page of my foil designs in it, i was really chuffed!

Love Chocolate xx

Special FX are actually produced by United Beauty - you might know them better as "Spangles".

They are widely available at Salon Services and Sally's, and also in the Beauty Express catalog.

Hope this helps :D
