First you need to cut the foil into pieces of different sizes and shapes. Also, you can buy it already cut into different size pieces of an abstract shape. Next, with tweezers we spread the foil on the nail. It can be either a pre-designed pattern or an abstract picture. The edges of the foil should fit snugly to the nail to prevent it from peeling off in the future. After that, we fix our work with varnish or paint. We are waiting for the curing agent to dry completely and give volume to our manicure. This can be done with acrylic paints or varnishes. We draw twigs, waves, various curls, flowers and so on on the nails . And most importantly - we cover the finished design with a fixer, preferably in two layers, for the longest possible effect.

Foil nail design is one of the easiest ways to design professionally. It is enough to have all the necessary materials and a little imagination.
