DIY How to Make Gold Leaf Nail Polish Topcoat

How to DIY a Gold Leaf Topcoat

Nothing says party beauty like decking yourself out in gold. But instead of going for a metallic gold manicure, why not try a gold leaf topcoat? We love the limited-edition gilded topcoat, OPI The Man With the Golden Gun ($40), but you can also put your DIY skills to work and create your own gold leaf topcoat at home.

All you need to do is make a trip to your local craft store and pick up a packet of gold foil. Break up the pieces using a bobby pin on top of a piece of paper. Next, funnel the pieces into your favourite topcoat little by little, using the polish brush to push pieces down into the polish. If you don't want to sacrifice a whole bottle of topcoat, then simply break off pieces of the gold foil and sandwich them between two layers of topcoat like I did for the look above.
