So yesterday I showed you the gorgeous, deep, rich burgundy nail varnish from Superdry, which you can read about HERE (link).

Just when I would normally change my varnish, I decided to sneak a few extra days from my manicure by using a top coat over it… because I’m cheeky like that.

But this wasn’t any old top coat.  Oh no! This was the gold standard of top coats.  And I mean that literally.  What you see here, lovely readers, is Port by Superdry with a double coat of (drum roll please) The Man With The Golden Gun by OPI from the current Skyfall collection.  Extremely difficult to get hold of (I bought it on Buyapowa and had to wait absolutely ages until it was back in stock) but oh-so-worth the chase.  This is a clear varnish with little particles of 18 carat gold leaf suspended in it.

Two words for this:

    So gorgeous! I’ve wanted this gold leaf topcoat since I first saw pictures before it came out and a manicure like this proves to me that I definitely need to get my hands on it!

      Oooh, get it! It’s hard to find, but so worth the chase!
      Thanks so much for your comment 🙂
