Teal Foil Abstract Nail Art Tutorial

Here's a gorgeous abstract tutorial for you using nail foils.  
The application technique I use in this tutorial is exactly the same as how I applied the Imperial Purple foil in my Imperial Glitter and Glam posts.  So if you wanted to know how I created the graffiti look in that nail, just watch the video below.

I did the tutorial on the model hand, but actually wore this design for my work Christmas party in early December.  (got behind in editing and almost forgot about this video.)  I think it's a great party look for any night out.  I think this foiling method is going to be a trend with me for a little while. :)
What do you guys think of this look?
