Gold has truly been a trending color this fall and now into the Holidays.  I haven’t, in the past, been keen on wearing gold nail polish.  And I haven’t worn gold eye shadows much before, either.  However, things tend to change when you start blogging about beauty items.  It has a tendency to stretch out one’s boundaries.  And within that, you can discover new joys.

Here I am swatching 5 different gold polishes; from 4 different companies…

From Left to Right: Wet ‘N Wild’s Goldmine; Borghese’s Ipnotico Gold; China Glaze’s Cleopatra; Savyy’s Golden Honey; China Glaze’s Cowardly Lyin’

WooT!  I scored 5 gold medals!!  They are all gold but each has their own expression.

Just a bit out of focus to see who sparkles and who shines.

My nails are in the same order here.  From Left to Right: Wet ‘N Wild’s Goldmine; Borghese’s Ipnotico Gold; China Glaze’s Cleopatra; Savyy’s Golden Honey; China Glaze’s Cowardly Lyin’

I have three coats of color on.  And I have 2 coats of Seche Clear with Olan Labs’ Quick & Slick as a top coat.

As much as I love twinkly colors, I like the buffed gold color of Savvy.  The rest are just a bit too weak for me.  Cleopatra is one that I would just use as a top coat. 

Here’s the look in the sunny window.  Cowardly Lyin’ just can’t get past the VNL.  All the golds are ‘warm’.  It was fun to see them all side by side.  I think that they are all so subtle that no one noticed that there is a different gold color on each nail.

Are you sporting any gold polishes this Holiday season?  Do you like to wear gold as a polish?  Tell me your favorite.

  • I love gold polish ^_^ My favorite is the gold shade from the Orly Foil FX collection.

  • Gold is my fav of all colors!!! There is a really nice gold nail polish from Gosh (Its like a greek godness gold color but i forgot the name), have you try it out yet?

  • I really like the Golden Honey color! Looks like you have a bunch of great golds here! Are we going to see any of them with a matte finish? 🙂 Sorry, I had to ask! 🙂 🙂

  • @Heather/Eyeconic I missed out on the Foil FX series. 🙁

    @Silence is Loud I have yet to try a Gosh. It's on the list, though!

    @The Peach lol, nope I took them off without matte. How could I forget!!! I guess I didn't want to become 'Matted Libby'. Poor Libby. She never gets matted; she loves to get brushed.
