'Gildy' Pleasures

Day 49

Today's nails are kind of different than what I usually do, they are embellished by gilding them rather than painting designs. I used gold leaf for the effect, I crumpled up little pieces and gently placed on wet polish, and then let dry, and used my finger to brush of the excess that was sticking up.

I used Nubar Peacock Feathers as a base, which is one of the most gorgeous colors- the picture doesn't capture all the colors that it flashes, teals, greens, blues, purples! It's truly beautiful. I used gold leaf for the gold, which you can find at any craft store. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat as usual. :)

What are some of your 'gildy' pleasures?
