DIY: Foiled Nails

With the holidays around the corner (insane right?!), I can't help but fall in love with all that is glitter and gold. What perfect way to celebrate that with some gold foiled nails! Inspired, none other, than by the foiled fashion trend.

1. Paint your nails and allow it to completely dry.

2. Take a gold flake and flatten it onto your nail with the blunt end of an earring post.

3. Then, paint your nail with a clear topcoat (to protect and secure the flakes).


(Sorry the condition of these photos and messy look of my nails. This was a spur of the moment DIY and I also didn't have anymore nail polish remover. :( A few washes of the hand eventually removes the polish left on the skin. But you get the idea.)
