Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #20: Soap Bubbles
Today’s challenge theme is bubbles! I loved playing with soap bubbles as a kid, simply because the rainbow colors they give off (reflection and refraction of light, physics physics physics) are so pretty. So I wanted my nails to give off that same effect!

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #11: Greek!
Today’s challenge has a Greek theme, and I wanted to do something different than the Grecian Dress design that I did a while back. One of my favorite patterns is the Greek fret/key pattern, so I decided to alter it a little bit and use it for this challenge!

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #10: Zebra Print
I never thought we’d end up doing a common design! I haven’t done zebra print in a very long time, so it was the perfect opportunity to get some practice in. This was also my first try using The Best Glue Ever with my nail foil! This stuff is AMAZING.
- Finger Paints - Gallery Glam
- Dollar Nail Art - Seafoam
After a long wait, it has finally arrived… The Best Glue Ever!
As you may or may not know, one of my favorite nail art accessories is nail foil. Here are a few designs I’ve done with the unicorn of accessories (click on them to view them):
When I buy my foil (DollarNailArt.com!), it comes with its own foil glue. It does a good job with tackiness and hold, but I need something that let’s me have a little more control with placement (lines, detailing, etc.).
I’m a die-hard fan of Robin Moses, and she’s the reason I use nail foil! She’s done so many awesome things with foil, but the glue she uses is The Best Glue Ever by Scraperfect. Everything turns AWESOME. After about a year of debating with myself, I decided to give it a try and it came in the mail yesterday!
I have yet to use it (hopefully in a nail design coming tomorrow), but you can click the links below to see the awesome designs Robin has done with TBGE and nail foil!
Opal Swirl nail foil over L’Oreal VIP Status. This foil is awesome because it’s perfect for layering and gives this cool rainbow shine, like soap bubbles! Get it at DollarNailArt.com!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The cloud cover is blocking the sun, keeping me from showing you how glittery and shiny these are.
These are my nail foils that I have yet to show you. If you want to see the recent ones I bought, click here. Click here for Tie Dye Surprise and click here for Diamond Red. Please know that nail foil is highly reflective and difficult to photograph, so I will try to be as accurate with the colors as I can. Here they are!
Silver Crush. A holographic silver with a geometric print.
Tea Rose. Tea Rose is like a peachy pink, relatively between pink and copper.
Passion Pink. Your standard, girly, Barbie Pink. If you want to be really accurate, check out the foil ribbon on the Paris Amour lotion bottle from Bath and Body Works (it’s spot on!).
Fuschia Fantasy. Fuschia Fantasy is a lot like Silver Crush, except it’s fuschia. It’s got more pink to it in person than on the screen.
Imperial Iris. It’s more in-your-face in person, but it’s a vibrant purple. At first it seems very basic, but when the light hits it, this really cool holographic spectrum appears, and it makes it so unique. It’s much like Laser Optics.
Purple. A standard purple. It’s like Imperial Iris and Laser Optics without all the add-ons.
Lilac Crush. Just like silver crush, but it’s light purple.
Peacock Dazzle. This is a bright blue with a wavy pattern, and when the light reflects off of it, it shows a green and blue reflection.
Dublin Dazzle. It’s the same as peacock dazzle except green, and reflects yellow and green.
African Jade. This is one my personal favorites, and I still have yet to use it! It’s a mix of a gorgeous turquoise and shiny gold.
White Gold. Self explanatory, but it’s a light gold. If you know what white gold looks like in real life, this is it.
Gold. Your very shiny, standard gold.
Gold Crush. Just like silver crush, but it’s a pretty gold.
That’s it! Each color costs $1 each, and each roll contains 5 feet of foil. And for every 6 rolls of foil you order, you get a free bottle of nail foil adhesive! If you order from Dollar Nail Art, there is a $25 minimum order. HOWEVER, if you do not want to order $25 worth of products, you can print an order form from their website, fill it out, and send it in along with a check or money order to their address (go to their website and click FAQs on the left for more info). Order yours now at DollarNailArt.com!
I know it’s early, but… Valentine’s Day nails: Foil and polish hearts!
