Epic Nail - Nail Foil Kit review

Hello lovelies!
I am excited to share with you today a review for Epic Nails foil kits.  I haven't had much experience with foils, but they always look so awesome I couldn't wait to try them.
The Essentials Kit came in a lovely box, and contained 6 rolls, foil glue, cuticle sticks and instructions.

The instructions on the Epic Nail website say...
'Apply a very thin layer of the foil glue, wait for the glue to “go clear”.
Apply the foil with the pattern/colour side facing you. 
Firmly press and rub the foil on the nail paying special attention to the back and sides of the nail.
Starting at one side peel the foil back gently. If you make a mistake use an alcohol wipe to remove the glue/foil and start again.
Apply top coat.'

I followed these instructions, apart from waiting longer than one minute for the glue to try, as I was having no luck. I waited maybe 5 minutes and that worked a lot better for me.  I also used a cotton bud to rub the foil onto the nail.

The foil in the pics below is 'All Laced Up'.

I love the rainbow holo effect in this! I put this over a silver holo, so any patchness wouldn't show as much, but as you can see I had hardly any!

Below is my first attempt.. it's not so great. This is on bare nails, and it is quite patchy, but I really think that is more from my lack of experience with foils.  But I love the colours in it, so had to share. Next time I will put this over black nail polish, I think that will look amazing. :)

All in all, I really enjoyed using the foils, apart from not being able to get them to transfer at all to start with! lol  Once I started leaving the glue to dry longer they worked great.  :)

Epic nails foils can be bought on their website at http://www.epicnail.com.au/ and they also have a Facebook page.

Till next time.


  1. I keep having the same problem! I can't seem to get the foil to transfer onto my nail. I haven't waited as long as 5 minutes for the glue to dry though as I get impatient so maybe I'll try that next time :-)

  2. It's hard to be patient, I just want to pop them on right away. lol Definitely worth the wait though. :)


Thank you for your comment, I read and appreciate every single one! :)
