Mentality 12K Gold

I like gold leaf nail art a lot, although I always use torn up bits of real gold leaf to get a more dramatic look (as in this mani here). I've been around for silver or white gold leaf for ages, so when I spotted Mentality's 12K Gold topcoat, which is white gold leaf,  I couldn't wait to try it. I've bought a few Mentality polishes recently (mattes and microglitters), and I've been really impressed with the colours and formula. And the price is also extremely reasonable!

I used just one coat of Mentality 12K Gold over Rescue Beauty Lounge Jane for this mani. 12K Gold is incredibly easy to use, no need to fish around for the gold leaf in the bottle. One coat of Seche Vite to finish this off, and I had a subtle and elegant design that I've been wearing for the last four days. I think 12K Gold would look fab over a dark plum or navy base, or over a bright colour. I'll be sure to be trying other combinations soon!

I purchased Mentality 12K Gold from Sally Magpies. Mentality have their own website and shop, it's just so much easier to buy from Sally in the UK!


  1. Very pretty! love it over that light base :) Awesome nail shape!

  2. Stunning, looks great on your fabulous nails!

  3. This looks so nice over the grey, and gorgeous on your nail shape!

  4. Very pretty! I haven't tried any of the real gold toppers yet--bought a couple but they sit in my untrieds while I debate whether it's too decadent to use real gold on my fingers.

  5. Wow!
    That's utterly gorgeous! I've never used gold flakes before but I can see that changing x
