Showing posts with label gold

Hello lovelies! Firstly thank you all for your feedback on previous posts! I will keep the squared shape of my nails for a while. But I still have some older swatches which I have rounded nails on. So don't be confused with change of my nail shape post from post :)

China Glaze Anchors Away Collection didn't steal my heart but Ahoy! nail polish certainly did! Straight after I saw first swatches of it, I had to have it! I bought it in the set of miniatures so I will have few more swatches from Anchors Away collection to show you.

Ahoy! - Rich raspberry jelly packed with gold flecks. This is an amazing combination and I just love it! I will never have enough colours like this! It applied very easily and I've needed usual two coats for a full coverage. No basecoat and topcoat. Removal was ok, the gold flecks didn't cause a problem.

I'm really pleased with the formula of all polishes I have from this collection.

Natural daylight

Artificial light

Direct sunlight

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 :)
