Buy it: Claire's Stores

It's Friday ladies and gents - woot, woot! I don't know about you guys, but I need some cheering up from this cold and dreary weather we've been having. And Claire's foil collection should do the trick!

I'm really excited with this mini set from Claire's and to think, I almost passed this baby up twice! In this set, you get six polishes averaging .25/oz each at $12.50/set. Each shade is packed with loads of pigmentation for the foil lover and who doesn't love that?

Like most Claire's limited edition sets, there's no officially nail polish name - which is a huge pet peeve of mine!

Let's check out the swatches

Claire's Cosmeics Silver Foil Nail Polish

Silver is an opaque silver foil.

Claire's Cosmetics Gold Foil Nail Polish

Gold is the only color that's not as opaque as the others. This would look great layered over any nail polish too.

Claire's Cosmetics Blue Foil Nail Polish

Blue is an opaque, gorgeous blue foil.

Claire's Cosmetics Pink Foil Nail Polish

Pink is an opaque red toned pink foil.

Claire's Cosmetics Green Foil Nail Polish

Green is an opaque sage green foil.

Claire's Cosmetics Purple Foil Nail Polish

Purple is an opaque purple foil that's insanely pretty.

Two Color Manicure using Foil Polishes

Just to mix things up a bit, Purple and Silver foil.

Overall, great collection for the foil lover! Good color pay-off and application. Small mini bottles perfect for travel or on the go! Hope you a wonderful weekend!

How do you guys feel about foil nail polishes? Love them, Hate them?

These are nice foil polishes. Great colors and I love the combo you did at the end. I ordered a set of foil polishes earlier this year and those are some of my favorite polishes. "Dazzling". ;)

Love your striped manicure. Something different from the dots. Very pretty. I'm going to get the China Glaze Khrome Collection.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
