Review: KKCenterHK N.Nail Silver Heart Flower Laser Nail Foil Transfer [NNAIL-E45]

I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

Here it is... my first manicure post in almost exactly a month! Yikes! Yep, I went about 3 weeks without painting my nails even once. I believe before I've mentioned I get kind of weird around my birthday? Well, it's gone and passed so hopefully I'll get back to normal and post manicures more often again.. hope I get over this manicure funk soon.

Anyway, my last manicure post was a KKCenterHK water decal review and today I have another review for one of their products. This time I picked out 2 foils to review, because I love their foil so much. First up is product number N.Nail Silver Heart Flower Laser Nail Foil Transfer [NNAIL-E45].

Here's what the nail foil looks like. Pretty neat, right?

 For some reason, this foil made me think of Chibi Moon's Pink Sugar Heart Attack (Sailor Moon reference!) so I decided to start this manicure with 2 coats of Milani Digital, a really gorgeous pink holo. I had a really neat idea for this manicure, but it turned out not to go so well. Here's what I started with. Gorgeous, right?

I had this really neat idea of cutting out one of the hearts, then cutting it in half. I tried putting one half on one nail, the other on the other nail next to it. This didn't go so well because this foil is kind of awful to work with. It doesn't lay flat at all, so it tends to wrinkle which means when you lift it from your nail, there's still a lot of chunks of the foil missing so you can't really get a nice clean pattern with it like you can with some of their other foils. BIG TIME BUMMER!

So that definitely did not work out. I've had this experience in the past with one of their other foils and I know from experience this means a few problems: everywhere the foil doesn't stick you're left with a gluey residue which doesn't wash off well but everything sticks to it. So you can either use the glue and then apply top coat over the foil (which is what I did) or you can nix the glue and use top coat instead to stick the foil to the nails. The problem with applying the top coat over the foil is you lose a lot of the holo effect. This still turned out looking pretty neat (my boyfriend said it reminded him of the paint jobs on some of the old toy cars) but it definitely wasn't what I was hoping for. So this was very disappointing! Oh yeah.. also, the top coat did eat the foil a little bit, another boo hoo!

After I realized my original idea wasn't going to work, I kind of just applied this foil randomly on all of my nails :D 

So I still have one more foil to review for you guys this week. I haven't tested it out yet, so hopefully it works much better than this one!
