Gold dipped nails DIY tutorial

gold nails
 Lately I've been having some fun with foil sheets. Get them if you haven't already because you can make some pretty cool accessories with it. You can make "gold brooches" out of plastic toys or put some "gold" on your nails. Isn't it nice? Even better this manicure only takes a few minutes to make it.
If you love shiny things, you'll love aluminum foil.

you'll need:
  •  colored nail polish
  • aluminum foil adhesive (foil glue)
  • gold aluminum foil

Vi piacciono gli accessori luccicanti? Allora amerete la foglia d'oro. La pellicola dorata vi permette di ricoprire "d'oro" qualunque cosa vi capiti a tiro. Potrete trasformare dei giocattoli in plastica in spille dorate o dorare le vostre unghie e in pochi minuti, giusto il tempo di fare asciugare lo smalto!

Vi serviranno:
  • smalto
  • pellicola dorata per il foiling
  • colla per doratura


 Apply a coat of nail polish

Applicate uno strato di smalto



Apply foil glue on nails with a brush. You can apply it randomly.
When glue becomes sticky and transparent (in a couple of minutes) cut tiny pieces of aluminum foil and stick them on nails.

Applicate la colla per doratura sulle unghie con un pennello. Non è necessario essere precise, applicatela qui e là.
Quando la colla diventa trasparente e appiccicosa tagliate dei piccoli pezzetti di alluminio dorato e applicateli sulle unghie.

 Press the foil on nails a little and then peel it off.

Premete la pellicola sull'unghia e poi rimuovetela.




That's it! You've done.
You can use the foil again to add only a tiny bit of gold on nails.
About top coat.  I applied a layer of top coat on one hand. The top coat makes the gold foil a little less shiny and mirrory but protects it .You can leave nails uncovered if the manicure is for one special evening only (avoiding the contact with water).

P.S. We'll use the foil again in another DIY project the coming week. Stay tuned!


Ecco fatto!
Potete usare di nuovo la stessa pellicola sulle unghie quando vorrete aggiungere solo un tocco dorato qui e là.
Se volete proteggere lo strato dorato dovette applicare un top coat sulle unghie però la doratura diventerà meno luminosa e riflettente. Se la manicure è per una serata speciale allora potete anche saltare il top coat evitando il contatto con l'acqua.

Vi è piaciuto giocare ad essere re Mida? Allora rimanete sintonizzate, useremo di nuovo la foglia d'oro in un altro progetto fai da te la prossima settimana!
