November 22nd: Foil

I don't know what's gotten into me, but I am really starting to dig simple nail art. I never even used to bother shaping my nails....

Anyway, a way too late and long skype conversation with a loved one back home had me search ebay for some cheap nail art materials and I came along what looks like gold foil but is actually a thinner version of cheap lolly paper.

I put a lilac base coat on, then used tweezers to rip off little bits of the foil and applied it to the wet nail. I used one of these cuticle cutter/buff thingies to flatten the foil, let it dry and put a clear top coat on to finish it off et voila - cute nails for days!
