There are a few swatches going around that have gotten me OBSESSED with gold leaf topcoats! This one by Ash from Art Evolve, and this one from Polish Amor.
I cannot seem to find the OPI Man With the Golden Gun topcoat, so I decided to make my own! I picked up some gold leaf from Micheals, it cost me $6.00. Now this is a big pain in the butt to make, but the pay off is pretty great!
This beautiful soft teal China Glaze is For Audrey.
This pretty pink is an un-named Sally-girl polish.
So this is how the gold leaf came when I bought it. The best way I have found to make it, is to use a piece of paper and an exacto knife and just slice the leaf into tiny pieces. It takes some patience! When I got the pieces small enough, I added about 10 drops of clear polish and swiped the polish over my nail, I did have to dot a few pieces on here and there to get the look I was hoping for. A generous coat of Seche Vite made it glassy smooth!
