BEAUTY | The Metal Nails

Photobucket

I've gotten a massive amount of questions on my nails of the previous post. It is not a nail polish but a nail foil. Kind of like stickers for your nails. It was invented by a company named Minx who put in on the market back in 2007. Now you can get your nails foiled at lots of nail salons and buy nail foil at every other make up store if you want to do it yourself. I recommend the ones from Sephora, which I always use for my toenails. Unlike nailpolish it doesn't chip off, if no air get's underneath the sticky foil you can wear them as long as you want to. Foiling the nails on your hands is trickyer, a friend of mine -thanks Michelle!- who is a nail stylist and recently started working with nail Minx did mine.

I already heard of it, but never did it! I hate nail polish so this could be awesome for me. Btw, my cat delivered 5 kittens 3 months ago, how cute is that ?!

Nail foils are such a neat look, and seem way more practical.

het ziet er zo cool uit! heb het zelf ook wel eens geprobeerd, maar het is echt lastig om het zelf egaal te krijgen - vond ik. het effect is wel echt geweldig... als het doorontwikkelt wordt dan is het way better dan nagellak!

Miss Independent said...

stunning! its great to know that they're long lasting!

amalie said...

they're awesome!!
