Could someone tell me when doing foils on acrylic or gel how do you embed them? What type of top coat also. Any tips would be great as I'm going crazy on buying colors Big Grin lol !!!! Thanks so much.Wink
check out Holly's video on youtube its fingernailfixer Shellac with foil. you press it into the cured layer before the top coat is how im doing it. And im using regualr crafting foil
I've only used it with gels and what I did was leave the tacky layer and 'tapped' the foil onto that instead of using the glue that comes with the foils. I never could quite get that right. It was much easier using the sticky gel layer. Smile

Michele... The way you describe doing the foils sounds good.. I haven't tried it, without using the adhesive.. ( when you say tapping it on, what exactly do you mean) I really want to try it..
Thanks
