Review: KKCenterHK Foil

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings

KKCenterHK sent me some nail foil to try out and review. The foil that I picked out was the Purple Gold Black Irregular Nail Foil Transfer, I thought I would get a cool gradient effect with just a little bit of work. I was really excited to give this a try, as I have been wanting to for quite sometime. 


You get a pretty good amount of foil it a plastic container. Just cut off the amount you need for your manicure.


With the roll of foil I also received a small bottle of adhesive to use with it. The foil alone costs $6.92 if you want a bottle of glue with it the cost is $8.86 (small bottle) or $10.80 (larger bottle). Basically you are supposed to 'paint' your nail with this adhesive, wait for it to dry a little, so it's tacky then you place the foil over your nail and use your finger to smooth out the foil. When you lift the foil sheet off your nail it should have transferred to it and give you a really cool looking nail. 

I tried and tried to get this product to work great for me, but I feel like it was a total fail. I feel as though I did everything properly, but still could not get it to look good. I could not get a seamless transfer, I would have to go back and fill in spaces where the foil did not adhere to. Maybe it's not supposed to fully cover your nail? I don't know.


I took photos of my nails when I used this product and accidentally erased them off my SD card before I got them put on my computer, thus the reason for the nail wheel. I found this process to be slightly messy on account of the glue so I opted to just 'swatch' it if you will on the nail wheel instead of on my nails.

Even though the glue was just tacky when I placed the foil down, it make the finished product on my nails feel tacky as well. Foiling nails apparently is just not for me.

Have you tired nail foil?  Any tips to make it work better?

  1. What a bummer! This looks like it would be so cool if it turned out right. I've never tried nail foil, so I don't really have any tips for you. :(

    1. I need to see if I can find a different glue than what I used, something that is not too expensive.
