Gold flake topcoat.....Stylish or ghetto fab? Im not normally a gold type of person. All my jewellery is silver or white gold but every now and then I think its fun to strap on your ghetto gold Carrie necklace and embrace something a little out of your comfort zone.
Zoya Gilty is an 18K real gold flake topcoat. The flakes are suspended in a clear suspension base. It is not fast drying, however is suitable to use as a final layer over any mani. I did apply a layer of Seche over mine to dry it quickly. The bottle contains a range of gold flakes from bigger nugget like chunks to smaller flake particles. Its like shredded gold in a bottle and might I say, very pretty shredded gold. It was a little difficult to create a glitter gradient with as it got a bit suspension base heavy when trying to build up the final layer near the cuticle, but its still really gorgeous. The formula when painting full nails was good, the flakes mostly spread evenly with only a few dabs needed here and there to fill a couple of empty spots.
