Gold Leaf Hot Mess

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. 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.
