Foil crackle look

A while back I got a bunch of foils and I play with them here and there but I was never able to get the foil to completely transfer on to the nail were it looked good. I kinda gave up until I saw a post and video tutorial by the master of nail art Robin Moses if you don't know about her you need to go to her blog and YouTube channel now! She sometimes uses foils in her design and has testing many different glues and finally found a good foil glue. When I seen that I immediately started searching for The best glue ever (that's actually the name of it lol) I unfortunately didn't find it and I had to order it on overstock.com but it was ok because they have free shipping.

I finally got my bottle today and I wanted to try doing a design Robin did on her blog that didn't seem too difficult its a crackle polish technique which is basically using different color foils to look like crackle polish over a black polish.

For my version of design I used Wet N Wild black, Multi colored foil, China Glaze fairy dust, neon yellow and orange paint. I love this design it is now my favorite mani!









Have you ladies tried foils before? If so what kind of glue do you use?
