Aussie Christmas Nail Challenge - Gold

Today's Aussie Christmas Nail Challenge is GOLD.  Bet you thought I'd wear Pretty Serious Cosmetics Golden Ticket for this, or some other gold polish.  It seems I have quite a few but I wanted to do something different.  So I used some nail foil that I got in a sample pack from Ebay. First I painted my nails with one coat of Ulta3 Black Satin, my favourite (and cheapest) single coat black.  Then I applied a layer of special foil glue, waited for it to dry, then pressed on the foil and rubbed gently to transfer the design.
The foil I used is a black and gold marble design.  I used black underwear in case parts of the foil didn't transfer or cracked.  This foil actually worked quite well.  I got a little bit of wrinkling when I applied topcoat but it's not noticeable to the naked eye, it just looks really reflective, and actually is the smoothest results I've had so far. 
It's going to be interesting to see how well this wears over the weekend.  I have a lot of cooking and cleaning to do in preparation for Christmas.  I'm pretty sure it will survive but I have to take it off to do Sunday's nail challenge.
If you want more info on nail foils check out Natalie's blog, in particular her introduction to nail foils.


  1. Before I read the post, I thought that looked like Black Spotted over a gold polish! Looks great :)
