I wanted to demo Gold Leaf by Salon Perfect, the gold included with the rest of the St. Patrick’s Day prize I won! I was slightly pressed for time, so I just used a gear stamp over it and added some studs. I rather like the result!
Gold Leaf is a standard gold glitter polish. Opaque in 3 thin coats and a bit runny, it honestly doesn’t have the best formula. That being said, it is a nice shiny gold! It did not remove as easily as a creme polish, but wasn’t as bad as I expected.
I had been waiting to use the gear stamp from Bundle Monster plate 609, and I figured over a metallic gold would be a good idea! I love this stamp. Seriously. So cool!
The last step was to add some gold studs, because otherwise this was just too easy. I did end up top coating over the studs, so they actually lasted 3-4 days rather than just overnight. Win!
Hope you enjoyed! More Mentality polish up tomorrow…and I think I’ll (unfortunately) have to start including some current pictures of my right hand since I’m running low on nail art. Hint: its terrible. I sacrificed two nails in the move at the beginning of May and they have not yet grown back. Super-nubbins!
