Hello Everyone!!! Today I have a gorgeous gold leaf top coat to show you!! I found this on clearance at my local Sephora located inside JC Penney!! Originally, I believe this Real 18K Gold Top Coat was $30, but I was lucky enough to snag two at $8 each! So I thought I would share and give one away to my lovely readers!! The Rafflecopter is at the bottom of this post!! And a big thank you to the girls on Instagram - @lovehart86 and @allforus - for telling me about this awesome deal!!
I started with 2 coats of ManGlaze Santorum. I've done a previous post on this, but figured my I paint better now, and you'd like to see better pics :-) haha I could have almost got away with one coat, but I liked 2 to make sure I had even coverage. Santorum is a gorgeous brown matte with red shimmers in it! You can purchase ManGlaze in a few places - http://manglaze.myshopify.com/, Amazon, and Facebook.
Next, I applied 1 coat of Sephora by OPI - It's Real - Real 18K Gold Top Coat and topped with Seche Vite. ManGlaze is no longer matte now, but look how amazing it looks glossy under the beautiful gold leaf!! I am loving this combination!!!
The gold seems to be staying mixed very well too. I will post my Cult Nails version tomorrow, but the gold in that sinks since the Wicked Fast top coat isn't a suspension base.
In the shade, Santorum looks darker, but it is still a beautiful contrast with the gold!!
The gold flakies in Sephora's version are small and delicate. Some of the other brands making gold leaf top coats are larger pieces. I really loved Sephora's version because of how nice it applied with one coat and how smooth it was on the nail!! And to find it on clearance?! SCORE! So check out your local Sephora! I hear it's not reduced in free standing Sephoras yet, but maybe it will be soon!
