The foiled rose

Here is the "Red Carpet" by Indigo. It is a beautiful red, with very discrete gold shimmer. You can't see it unless you are searching how to describe the color, lol, but it gives the polish a very beautiful tone.

For the roses, I used the french pink background and made the rose pattern with polish. I let it dry and applied the gel paint to make the outlines. Cured in a uv lamp for 2 min and applied the golden foil.

The risk you have when you are working with polish, is that even when it feels dry (but isn't) it may pick some foil as well. So I got some foil on the red part, and filled it again with red. I think I lost some of the 3d effect, but saved the design:) Oh, the topcoat should better be a soak off, or any that you know that it will not crack and rinkle the foil..

Foil is very important, I had many gold foils that didn't work. The ones that work are super thin, and make small breaks if you fold them.. If you want to watch the tutorial, click here
