I'm taking a short break from the regularly-scheduled program of Nerd Lacquers that we've had this past week to show you a few products from the Winstonia store!
This manicure was done using the nail foils in colour #39, which you can find here. There's a ton on the roll so you'll never run out; it's 1.5 inches wide and 44 inches long! This was my first time using nail foils and I was a bit nervous due to my lack of a special foil adhesive, but it was actually really easy!
I started with two coats of Lacquer Lust Orion and a layer of LaCC 2013 top coat. Once that was dry, one nail at a time I added another thin coat of Orion. While that was still tacky, I pressed a piece of foil over the nail and rubbed to transfer it. I then went over it a second time in an attempt to cover any holes I had left. I managed to get pretty good coverage; you can barely see any black poking through!
I also got this pack of orange sticks to review, which I was super excited about. You can find them here. I use these things ALL the time!! I tried to take my own photo but the package was too reflective, so this is the photo from the website. My package looks the exact same.
The package comes with 30 wooden sticks in three different sizes, which is pretty much a lifetime supply! I mainly use these to clean up any major messes as I paint my nails, although they're also great for dragging designs for a water marble mani and making super-tiny dots. Just a really great useful thing to always have handy, if you ask me!
Back to the nail foils! Since they were so crazy reflective, I decided to take a few photos in my lightbox to better show the coverage. This was so cool, almost an acid-washed look, but with a mirror-like finish! I might just have to grab myself a few more nail foils; how awesome do the holographic ones look?!
You can purchase these products through the Winstonia store; the nail foil here (I showed #39) and the orange sticks here.
What do you think of this look? Have you tried nail foils before? I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was, but how do you find working with them? :)
