Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

Okay, so this was a really rad idea in my head. I'll put Rococo Gold Leaf Lacquer over Zoya Crystal! WOOOO!

Hmmm....doesn't quite look like it did in my head.

Hmmmm....gold leaves look like splattered egg yolks. Everything looks so textured!!

I did three coats of Crystal and one coat of Gold Leaf Lacquer.

I also had some bubbling from using Barielle Manicure Extender under my top coat. I keep having this problem with it, whenever I choose to use it, so I'm thinking to myself, "Self, ya might want to lay off of that one!"

In any case, it wasn't as bad as I initially thought it was. It kind of looks like an old map or a space view of planet Earth!

Weird, funky, and crazy.

Oh! And if you didn't already know this, Rococo Gold Leaf Lacquer stinks to HIGH HEAVENS!! There is nothing else comparable to the unique and pungent stench of it. Mmmmm....stinky gold leaves!!

I know I didn't get hardly any decent pictures of my last use of Gold Leaf, with Illamasqua Nudge, but it looked way awesome. Maybe it just looks better over smooth, sexy cremes?

I still want to try it over a plain black (Boosh, of course), maybe over a vampy red, dark purple creme, and maybe a navy? Ooo and a deep hunter green or like Rampage!! I have many ideas...probably should stick to the ones that I know will be amazing. :)

I also want a back-up of Gold Leaf Lacquer!! I don't want to run out.

I love it! LOVE IT.

A space view of planet Earth, that was my first thought too :-) Kind of cool mani!

Slurping up the eggs! Yum, yum. Lol! No, it doesn't look like eggs to me. I like all your combos. You come up with some amazing ideas.

I still haven't purchased Rococco. I hope they don't sell out before I decide to order it :)

I love how this combo looks! Where did you get the leaf polish?

You guys are all the best! Thank you!!

omgnoodles - I got it off a U.K. etailer site, Cult Beauty. www.cultbeauty.co.uk I was going to order from Space NK's site but they were out of stock and I panicked, thinking that I'd never get one if I didn't buy it right then! In other words, I paid way more than I needed to. :/ It was worth it, though.

I dont know haha, I kind of like it! I agree it looks like earth a bit, but very cool :)

I love it! Looks exactly as Earth, as you said. :) I bet it would look fab over purple too.

My first thought was that it looked like a map, but I think it looks really cool!

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
