NOTD | Crimson Red + Gold Leaf Nail Art

Thursday, March 31, 2016

In this episode of Stella plays with clear nails... LOL. 

I've wanted to play in gold leaf for a really long time and only just got my hands on some. I painted my nails red and embellished them with gold leaf. I left my feature nail clear, embellishes with gold leaf.




First I applied a gel base coat on all my nails and cured them. Then 2 coats of red gel polish in #10 from Amore US on all but my feature nail and cured each coat. Then I cut up the gold leaf in to small pieces and placed them onto the nails. The sticky residue left on the cured nails was the perfect base for them, sticky enough to hold them on but still loose enough to be moved to the right spot. On my feature nails I applied pieces of gold leaf leaving space between them to let the beauty of the clear base to show. I finished with gel top coat on all my nails...

I love it! Will play with the silver next ;-)

  2. very creative, seriously love it, but have a problem with its look on the black skin,..i think if it were on a lighter skin it would have been better.
