Love shimmer? Love shine? The Lecenté Shimmer nail art films are the perfect addition to your nail kit to add a pretty iridescent finish to nails.

The five styles are Blue Opalescent, Gold, Blue Orange, Indigo Opalescent and Silver Holographic.


Perform a manicure and prepare the natural nail for gel polish application, following manufacturer’s recommendations.

1. Apply a thin layer of Lecenté Foil Gel and cure for 120 seconds. Do not cap Foil Gel.

2. Cut the Shimmer Film into shapes and randomly place onto the cured Foil Gel using the Lecenté T1 applicator, making sure all the edges and corners are lying flat. Avoid placing the film on the edges of the nail.

3. Apply a layer of Lecenté Smooth It! and cap the edges of foil.

4. Apply Top Coat, making sure the nail is completely sealed once again and cure for 30 seconds

5. Remove top film with lint-free pad lightly saturated with 99% Iso-propyl Alcohol.

Ideal for festivals or the party season, the Lecenté Shimmer Foils are available from Lecenté, Sweet Squared & Ellisons.
