I've been craving for Studio M Purple Medaillon since I saw first pictures of it. I finally got it but it was quite a dissapointment :(

Purple Medaillon - a dark purple jelly base with quite big coloured glitter. Now this is really beautiful colour, I love it BUT the formula is really bad :-/ It is quite watery and it dries very gritty. The colour coverage is quite good, I've used two thicker coats. The brush is slim and soft so working with it wasn't a pleasure. I also wore this polish for a few days and after one and a half day it started to chip :( Beautiful colour but awful formula. What a shame!

I have compared Purple Medaillon with OPI DS Extravagance because the colour reminded it to me. I know they are very different with the size of a glitter/particles but I was just curious ;)

Price: 5/5
Formula: 2/5
Coverage: 3/5
Chipping: 2/5

We all know it -  it is really hard to find the perfect gold polish which would suit your skintone! Well I have the same problem so I hope this post will get you closer to YOUR perfect gold.

I've got here OPI Bling Dynasty, nice ochre toned shimmery gold. I have two coats in the pictures but I think it might need another coat. Application was nice and smooth and with OPI's wide brush also easy. Colour dried fast and removal wasn't very difficult.

Price: 3/5
Formula: 4/5
Coverage: 3/5
Chipping: 4/5

I've done a comparison of three gold polishes so you can see the differences between shades and finishes. Hope you'll find your favourite gold soon :)

I've compared OPI Bling Dynasty, Essie Shift Power and Illamasqua Victory. I've reviewed OPI above; Essie Shift Power needed three coats for the full coverage, it is quite streaky and little watery. Not impressed. Illamasqua Victory needed 2 coats, it was really nice to apply and dried fast. My winner :)
