Foil Crackle manicure inspired by Robin Moses!

Hi everybody, I'm back after a short break!

I'd like to show you a very interesting manicure inspired by amazing Robin Moses. Here you can check out the original YT video :)

I followed every step in the video. Firstly I've painted tips unevenly with Color Club Black. I let it dry and applied thin strokes of Best Glue Ever instead of classic foil glue as Robin gave it such great recommendation! I must say it's really great! It didn't peel on my natural nails and it was extra sticky. After glue dried (it becomes clear), I've cut a piece of Mylar foil and started to stick it to the glued parts of the nail. I've used fuchsia and dark blue foil (can't remember the names, they are not in the packaging). After these steps I got this:
(Artificial light)

The next step was to paint pink and light ble strokes over the wasn't good :-/ My experience with free hand nail art is zero and my brushes are rubbish. The result is not perfect but I still liked this mani very much! I will have to practice a lot :) I've topcoated the whole nail with Seche Vite and didn't experienced any foil cracking. I've worn this mani 5 days!

So what do you think? Should I experiment more with foils?

Oh and don't forget to check Robin's blog and YT channel, she's done some amazing nailart!


  1. This is really cool!
    I love it!

  2. I like the picture with just the foil; I loved the way it caught the light. I checked out Robin Moses a couple days ago, isn't she fantastic?!

  3. Mně se strašně líbí ta první fotka! Ten lak na tom už na mě působí tak nějak rušivě a přeplácaně, bez něj je to lepší.

  4. Love it! I tried the same mani by robin moses I could not stop looking at it

  5. rock-or-not: thank you :)

    A Polished Touch: Yeah, Robin is amazing..not only as an artist but as a person as well!

    Viennettka: Taky se mi to vic libilo samotne, ale delala jsem inspirovanou manikuru, tak jsem to chtela dotahnout do konce :) Ale i to se mi pak libilo, i kdyz musim pracovat na malovani ;)
