Gold Leaf Manicure Important Tip! Don't use the gold leaf available at craft stores, because they contain toxic impurities and you don't want to accidentally inhale or ingest them! Use cosmetic or edible grade gold leaf instead.
Ombre Nails Paint your nails white and wait till they're completely dry. Chose two or three colors that would look good together, and apply them to a make-up sponge. Sponge the color onto your nail. Apply a top coat to blend the colors together.
