NOTD: Nail Foils and Gloss Tips

I recently made a cheeky purchase from E.L.F. as they released a 30% discount code on their Facebook page for anyone who spent over £20. I didn't *really* need anything, but as is the way when I see any kind of promotion, it's all too easy for me to fill up my basket anyway! One of my purchases was their mattifying nail polish, so I decided to do some experimenting when my package arrived yesterday.

The base of the nail is a nail foil from my Rio Professional Nail Foils kit (see that in detail here), with a layer of the matte polish over the top. To carry on the experimenting, I then painted black polish over the tips, and added my Seche Vite top coat to just those areas to create the gloss/matte contrast.

I also want to say a big thank you to all the beauty bloggers on Twitter (@Dewaaaaaaaaaaaa) that answered my tweets, when I wasn't sure if a top coat would nullify the matte effect (which it does), and helped me to create this look!

My August Haul post will be up very soon featuring this polish!
