Step by step nail art



Foil Nails


Start off with a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”


Apply a base color of your choice, I used Jenna Hipp’s “American Pie.”


Next, apply some of the glue that will come with a foil kit, like the Ciate London foil kit I am using, apply as much or as little as you want. I used Ciate’s “Foil Fix.”


Then, place the foil on the nail, dull side down, and gently press it into the nail. I used the silver foil that was in the kit.


Repeat those steps with as many foils as you’d like. I only added one more foil and it was the pink one that was in the kit.



You can go back in and add more foil if needed. I went back and added some more to the edges of the nails so it looked more complete.


Your foil nails are finished!

Ciate Mani Markers | First Impressions, Swathes, Review


After wearing this polish for just ONE DAY it started to peel. I noticed when I first began wearing it that it looked a little funny but it began to look worse and worse and more streaky over time. It started to peel of in large amounts (which I have never had happen before). I do not think these Mani Markers are worth their price of $12 each. If you want to use the markers to paint your nail quickly and just for the night then I think they are great but not for long wear, my nail art didn’t even last a day!


  • Quick and easy to apply
  • Fast drying
  • Opaque in one coat
  • Variety of colors



  • Can be very streaky
  • Very thin coats
  • Can’t cap the free edge
