Born Pretty Store Review: Lace Transfer Foils


Press Sample

I always felt that fall was the busiest time for me, but it looks like winter is too. Well, technically, it's still fall for a few more days. Between wedding planning, house shopping, and holiday parties, I have been swamped!

Even with everything going on, I want to make sure I get these blogs posts out, especially the reviews. A little while ago I tried out these lace transfer foils from Born Pretty Store. It came as a 100 cm long ribbon in a small jar, without any instructions. I looked up the instructions online and it said to apply two coats of nail polish, the darker the better, and wait until it's tacky. Then press the foil on the nail to transfer the image, and peal off the plastic.

I got the black lace pattern, and I knew I wanted to wear it over a red polish. As per the instructions, I chose a darker red.

As you can see, I had a lot of difficulty with the transfer foils. First of all, I waited until my nail polish was almost all the way dry, but I still ended up lifting my nail polish off when I pealed up the foils. Also, in some places the foils would not transfer at all, and it left the pattern looking all patchy.

I wished I had gone with a lighter red, I don't understand why the foils called for a dark polish. The places where it did work looked beautiful, but this was still too hard to work with. Maybe if I keep practicing I will get better at it, because it really is a beautiful design.

Have you tried transfer foils before? Do you have any advice?
