Review: Born Pretty Store Nail Foil

This post contains product(s) provided to me for my honest review.

For the first foil manicure I did, I used LVX Cerulean as my base and the LVX 3-in-1 Treatment to create the tacky surface needed to apply these foils. The foils I used are #6 and #2. LOVING this combination!

I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easily this foil applied, I had thought that it would be more difficult than it actually is. They're extremely vibrant metallic foils that you basically stick on and pull away to get the color.
Below I've included a manicure in which I used #2 along with a video tutorial on how to use the foils! :)
-Apply your color of choice and let it dry completely.
-Apply a clear coat of nail polish and let it dry approximately 50-70%. You want it to be tacky but NOT wet.
-Press on the shiny side of the foil (the non-colorful side) and pull the foil away from the nail.

What do you think of these nail foils? Planning on trying them?

  1. I like the way you did these - I don't like the entire nail with foil on it, but I think tearing it and giving it that destroyed look is so cute! Nice job :-)

    1. Thank you! I think doing the whole nail in them would be more difficult too, haha. :)

  3. Interesting. So you don't need a nail/craft glue with the foil from BPS? You have gorgeous naked nails by the way! I'm envious.

    1. Nope, no glue necessary! Just a tacky surface. Aww, thank you! I owe it to my LVX 3-in-1 treatment.
