Nail Foils - Lady Queen Beauty Review

*This product was sent to me for review, all opinions are my own

Hey everyone! I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Lady Queen Beauty, an online store that sells everything from nail art products, to hair accessories, to cute novelty homeware items, to review some nail art products. I was more than happy to choose a few products to review for them, and they were kind enough to supply me with a 15% discount on any products for my followers: EXLC15 and free shipping worldwide is available too!

The first item I chose was the amazing nail foils featured in tonight's post. I've always admired nail foils from afar but have been too afraid to try them out because they looked complicated, messy and a bit of a nuisance. But I couldn't go past this opportunity to try them out and I'm super glad I chose them because I love the end result! I definitely regret not trying these earlier.

As I wasn't familiar with the application of nail foils I watched a couple of videos to see how I should use them. I first watched this video and that was super helpful but I wasn't sure I wanted to apply them as one strip over the whole nail, so I checked out this video by Jessie from Nailed It NZ and knew that's how I wanted to apply the foils. And they applied very easily! I did realise that I didn't have any 'nail foil glue' but instead I used PVA glue and it worked just as well as how I imagine the other glue would have. 

As you can see above, the foil pattern has so much colour and dimension to it. I fell in love with it when it arrived and I fell more in love with it when I pulled it out of the container and stuck it under the light. Look at the colours in the second picture! They're amazing. I did try out applying the foil all over my nail for a smooth, solid design but I got too eager and the glue hadn't dried enough so not all of it stuck down so I stuck with the messy look.

The photos don't even do the colours justice, they're so shiny and sparkly in different lighting and I've constantly caught myself just staring at my nails and moving them around to see all the different colours! They're so distracting!

My package from Lady Queen arrived within a few weeks and if you want to check out the range of foils available, you can find them here! There are so many to choose from and I can't wait to buy some more and experiment with different combinations. I may become obsessed with nail foils now.

Don't forget that using the code EXLC15 at checkout for 15% off your purchase! My next review for Lady Queen will be on a nail wheel of colourful studs, so stay tuned for that in the next week or so.

Thanks for reading!
