I recently picked a 12 pack of Martha Stewart Glitter 12 color "vintage Leaf" pack, and like all Stewart products, it looked like candy!
The obvious problem with using a material not intended for nails is that there are complications. For This manicure the problem was that the foil, which has the consistency of irregular confetti did not want to stay flat on my nails, so in order to make this manicure not have a sharp surface i had to apply a ridiculous amount of top coat! Overall i think this manicure is better appreciated at a distance because it really picks up the light, and the purples are so pretty together. However up close you can see the individual pieces of foil and it looks sort of messy.
For the bases i used O.P.I. - funky dunky and the color foil, as i said was from the Martha Stewart "vintage foil" set, is named chariote. I then use 4-6 coats of Seche Vite - quick dry top coat.
I think next time i'll use the foil more sparingly, because removing this was extremely difficult.
