Hey guys! it's lilah huurrrr (:
this nail tutorial is uber cute and i just love it! so springyy! ♥
TOOLS: Turquoise nail polish, gold leafing sheets clear top coat, nail file, q-tips
1.Select a good turquoise polish. it goes well with gold. (and It’s really pretty with white + coral!)
2.Paint all of your nails with the base color (:
3.Gold leaf sheets are VERY delicate so make sure your hands are clean + dry before handling. They tear so easily! Use scissors to cut small triangle shapes that will fit the corners of your nails. You want to cover about 1/3 of your nail, so make your triangles about that size.
4.Wet a q-tip and use that to pick up your gold triangle. Don’t try to pick them up with your fingers– you’ll crumble them and that suckkkssss (:
5.Lay the gold leaf triangle on the corner of the nail. You want to work quickly so the leafing sticks to the polish. The polish should be dry but still slightly tacky. If it’s too dry, put a very thin layer of clear top coat down before laying the leaf on the nail.
6.Smooth over the gold leaf with a clean dry q-tip to remove wrinkles/bubbles. If you mess up and chip off a piece of gold, it’s totally fine! Gold leafing is so thin that you can just lay another piece over the messed up part and it blends right in.
7.Use a nail file to gently file off the excess ♥
8. Finish with a quick drying clear coat to lock the gold leafing down! (:
