These are lovely! How do you get that effect please?! Xx
Just place the foils over the back of the nail (zone 3, no need to cover the whole nail, just where you want the reverse french to be) then paint gelish or shellac over the top of the foil in your chosen colour, you will need 2 or 3 coats of colour to stop the foil from shining through. hth

Fabulous thank you! Must give this a go! Do you stick it to the base coat or first colour coat? X

I usually lay down 1 coat of colour before adding the foil.

try some foil glue which gives you better coverage. apply shellac then put glue on, wait for it to go see through and then press foil into it , if you want a different look use 2 or 3 foils in different colours and press in different places xx
When I did this last year it didn't last 2 weeks. Only a couple days and it peeled!
