Stamping with foil: Zip me up

So last week I seen a post from Mrsrexy at Canadian Nail Fanatic her post blew my mind! She was stamping with foils so I ran to my nail art drawer got everything I needed and got on it. I started with Sinful Colors Savage which is a pretty green matte color.

2 coats of Sinful Colors Savage

I then decided to use my new Bundle Monster image plates and a gold holo foil. Stamping with foils is pretty simple the first thing you need to do is cut out some pieces of foils, Stamp the image you want on your nails and quickly place the foil on the stamp and rub it in. Easy right? My manicure came out ok but I wish I would have used a gold polish to stamp with instead of white you'll see why.

Here's what I used:

Sinful colors Savege
Konad White
Konad stamp and a scraper
Gold holo foil
BM 202
Orly Glosser (non fast dry top coat)

I should have stamped with a gold polish because in some part the foil didn't transfer so I had some white showing. Has anyone one tried doing this before?


  1. That is so crazy, I have never seen anything like this before. But I LOVE it!

  2. Thank You! It is very crazy that you can do it!

  3. Looks great. Did you just put the foil onto the wet polish or did you re-stamp with adhesive.

  4. Will definately be giving this a shot in the next couple of days.
    Lush product (Mint Julip): It is fantastic for dry flaky lips.

  5. i love this looks really good!

  6. Great idea! And it turned out nice :)

  7. It looks so pretty! It came out perfect. I have to try this one day. Too bad I don't own any real nail foil. Would it work with both Konad and regular nail polish for stamping?

  8. Oh wowowowow!! Omgosh i'd never heard of this before! Aaaahhh its crazy beautiful! =)
