Create a vibrant foil look with a nude background

Creating a party-perfect manicure can be taxing on your creativity. You want a festive look that catches the light, but you don't want to see the same design on anyone else. If you love metallic foil and its unique color variations, then this manicure should be on your to-do list.
Colorful foil gives this design variety, and no two nails will look exactly the same. Start with a semi-translucent jelly polish, then add metallic foil to either the tip or the base of each nail. The tutorial features a pink jelly base to replicate the nude trend, but feel free to follow your muse.
