"New year's fireworks" with holographic foil stamping


Good day darlings. New year is just around the corner, so I could not resist and made firework nail design using holo foil stamping. In the shade it looks just like gold stamping, but in the sun you can actually see those hypnotic folo beams and they become real fireworks. I used wonderful Pet'la plate for this design (fireworks), turns out it has perfect etching for foil stamping. My stamping polish was Konad Black pearl and top coat Revolution by Picture polish. Oh and background is fantastic dark teal August 2014 from Enchanted polish, although you can not see all its beauty covered by fireworks. Also I made another video tutorial for you. Happy new year !!!
