Good As Gold

Yes, I’m talkin’ about polish again. There is something about the winter that makes painting my nails the most enjoyable regimen. While I’m currently obsessed with Zoya‘s Edyta, I’m falling in love with this gold polish trend. Any polishes you guys recommend that can give you that glossy chrome finish?

  1. Have only seen chrome like that from Minx…(they’re stickers pretty much)
    It’s super costly from salons but you can totes get them on ebay (much more affordable) and they are SO cake to DIY!

    One of the best (and most affordable) golds I’ve come across is Orly’s “Luxe” from their Foil FX collection – it’s a close match to Chanel’s “Kaleidoscope.” It has a super foil/shiny finish and is the closest thing to Minx you can get in a polish (so far). I actually just ordered Edyta a few days ago and can’t wait for it!

  3. I love that gold and I haven’t seen it in a “nail polish” but thanks Rebecca for the suggestions… I will definitely try to find Orly’s version of it!

  5. I like Sally Hansen’s Gilty Pleasure and Gunmetal. They are metallic gold and gray. You can see it on me in the link below:

    Deborah Lippmann has a really luxurious nail polish with real 24k gold flakes in it. Not wholly gold, but still really glamorous. http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/lippmanncollection_2138_0
    She’s also got an opaque gold: http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/lippmanncollection_2141_6819

    I didn’t realize this was a trend, but I’m all about it! I wish I could wear nail polish more often (I work in food service 🙁 )

    I absolutely love OPI’s “GLITZERLAND”. I’m wearing it now, and it looks identical. It goes on SO smoothly, and hasn’t chipped through all week!

    Usually I love something more colorful for the winter, just because everything is go grey and cold. I would recommend O.P.I Malaga Wine for a elegant night out in the winter
