After my review on Monday of KKCenterHK's lace nail foil, I decided to delve into my existing small foil stash and try out another one.
It is said that Picture Polish's Revolution base coat for glitters is the answer to a huge prayer - a top coat that will not wrinkle, dull or destroy shiny foils! This I had to try. So I applied my very shiny Starburst Blue foil (over blue polish in case I left any gaps) then added a coat of Revolution. Here is the result:
IT'S STILL SHINY!
There is a small amount of wrinkling but, by and large, the foil is as intact as when I applied it.
A small warning - I tried applying a coat of Seche Vite over the coat of Revolution on my thumb, hoping that Revolution would act as a barrier over the foil - and the whole thing cracked like a crackle polish! So it does have to be Revolution on its own.
Since Revolution isn't strictly a proper nail polish I do wonder what the wear time will be. Unfortunately I'll be changing my nails for a Christmas meal tomorrow but I'll be trying this again during the holidays to see how long the manicure lasts!
