LOVE the way this turned out.

It's probably the most expensive mani that I'll ever have.

I picked up a big bag of gold leaf from the craft store and applied it to painted nails.  I could have picked some up at a beauty supply for cheaper maybe, I haven't looked to know for sure but oh well, I was there and it hit me, sometimes you just have to act on the idea.  Right?
I applied it over two coats of QRS Moody Blue (an awesome blue polish and could easily be a one coat wonder.)and while it was still a bit tacky, hard to do as it dries super quick, stuck on little flakes of leaf.  Honestly, it wanted to stick to everything but my nails.

I finished it up with a thick coat of Seche Vite.  I'd have to say my ring finger turned out the best.  I'll certainly be trying this look over other colors as well.
What do you think?  Do you like the look, would you do metal leaf over your nails? 
Thanks for reading, until next time, take care.
