3-D Foil Tips

The Claim: News flash: Nail art is having a major moment, and this kit aims to make dressing up your digits ridiculously easy and fun. You just paint a nail with the enclosed polish, then dot the white glue over areas you want to cover in foil. Wait a few minutes until the glue turns clear, then press a foil sheet onto the nail (the box contains 30 of them). Rip it off, and voilà!

Expert Opinion: As a manicurist, Dawn Sterling quickly got the hang of it and "loves the fashion-forward look it offers" but admits that someone who isn't skilled at doing her own nails might find the technique "tricky." Her best tip for foolproof results: When it's time to let 'em rip, "yank the foil off swiftly and in one direction."

Our Take: The finish "looks so cool," but you must be "very patient," warns a tester. "If you don't let the glue turn completely clear before pressing on the foil, the surface will be goopy when you pull off the sheet, and you'll be left with smudges."
