Good day darlings. Today I have nail design of which I'm really proud. In order to combine two challenges, I wanted to make something inspired by wrapping paper with reindeer. Among all beautiful gift wraps which I found online, one with simple light brown background and foiled reindeer design really cough my attention. I decided to replicate it using foil stamping technique which last time turned out so great. Moreover this time I had special foil top coat from Picture polish called Revolution. It was recommended by one of my readers, the owner of Pins patterns and polish blog. Thank you, thank you so much it works so perfectly for foils, does not smear them or interfere with holographic shine. However, since I was using White Konad for stamping and red foil it was way more difficult to get clear image. All the tiny bits where foil did not stick where showing right away. I had to repeat several times until it started to work well. So my recommendation is to use stamping polish similar in color to the foil. Unfortunately non of my red stamping polishes worked well for this technique. I also tried to cover entire nail with foil and this worked very well with Color club Berry and bright as a background. Finally, to finish this look I stamped Christmas tree and snowflakes on top of the foiled nails and covered everything with two coats of Revolution. This top coat helped to preserve foil for several days, needless to say it made me super happy.
