I saw a woman on t'bus today wearing PROPER gold nail polish, and if I can't get some I might actually die. It had the effect of actual solid polished metal - not the usual gold polish that just looks sort of grainy and pearlescent. Anyone got any idea where I can get some? I have a couple of parties coming up and it'd be just the thing!
I don't think you can get that effect from varnish, think it's either stick-ons or foils. I don't see how you could do with varnish; to get a reflective, mirror-like surface wouldn't be possible with millions of particles of pigment, it needs a continuous surface, I don't think the physics could ever work. Have definitely seen stick on silver ones, not sure about gold
I think the stuff you're on about is actually a transfer that you have done at a salon - my hairdresser had it on her toes but I cant remember what she said it was called! Sorry, that's not very helpful but I think the point is that you can't buy it in a bottle.
Now this is practically useless, but I have seen a board outside a shop in Manchester that shows these on toenails, but in silver. I think it might be a special treatment, maybe one for the manicurist?
