I love layering this polish over dark colors. Sometimes in brings out different colors in the glitter when it's on top of another color. 123
When I picked this up, I thought it was pretty and unique in the bottle, but the lighting didn't show the heavy gold tone this leans. When I swatched it, I was very disappointed as to how gold this actually is considering the name, but I thought I would try it out and see how I would like it, and actually I do like it.
The purple glitter is rather overwhelmed by the gold, so from a distance it doesn't really look like a glitter polish at all, but more of a pearlescent gold. Normally I can't do yellows but this is just muted enough to where it actually doesn't clash with my skin tone. Actually it kinda matches the color of my bleach blonde hair. Two coats and it's pretty much opaque, but I would like to try one coat over white and see how that looks too. I did like it after one coat, but it was just a little too see-through for my taste. 123
the color was ok, much more gold in real life. It was still quite pretty, only thing is it was a real pain in the butt to get this polish off after... still in love with Essie as a whole. 123
This product has a glue-like texture, which allows you to move it around briefly before it sets. It goes well over other colours and to touch up tips. What a special item. Very good. The many glittery colours are extremely beautiful. Starting with a base of metallic green, blue specs, and maybe more. I have so many other layers of light colours I can't tell what's what, but the overall effect is incredible. 123
