I found this polish in a bin for $4.99 at my local drugstore. I was looking for just a shimmery white nail polish for christmas/winter nail art but I can totally see myself wearing this alone. Its a gorgeous off-white nail polish with a gold tone. As with all OPI nail polishes, the brush is great and I get a week out of my manicure before it starts to wear or chip. I use about 2 coats to get the colour in the bottle and it looks beautiful as a manicure or pedicure. I would definitely repurchase this nail polish if I ever run out.

I like neutral colored nails, meaning, polish that will coordinate with whatever cosmetics I'm wearing. Having come of age at a time when women, at least this woman, always had mani/pedi/lips in a coordinating color, this has been challenging. To this day if I see a woman with horridly mismatched nail and lip colors I internally cringe, for that reason the French manicure became popular. However, I loathe and am morally opposed to them. That said, I've been wearing metallic silver as a neutral polish since ditching my uber dark manicure colors. I have been on the hunt for the perfect metallic gold but thus far no luck, then I spotted this in the sale bin for $2.99 at my local beauty supply store. This is opaque creamy white with the faintest shimmer of gold wash. Very much replicates the nacre of a white pearl dusted with gold. Flattering, light and sexy. I'm very fair complected and I wear pearls so this is sort of like having nacre on the tips of my nails. This isn't super metallic or obvious in any way but it is elegant in that understated only those in the know will know sort of way. Unlike others I didn't have any bubble application issues and I always apply 3 coats when I do my own manicure so that wasn't an issue either. This is ageless and chic and is great for date night or the boardroom. Flattering to most tones, too.

She's Golden is a metallic, frosty cool tone gold. Depends on the lights, under warm lights, it looks very warm pale yellow gold. Under cool lights, it looks kind of whitish cool pale gold. For some reason, I find the finish is quite foil looking. There are some micro golden shimmer but mainly frosty gold. The application is okay as you really have to apply it carefully to avoid streaks. I applied two coats and it turned out good. Three coats will be good and will be opaque but it took longer to dry.
I agree with the other viewer that you have to be careful to apply this polish as it can create bubbles. Also, it chips easily and not tiny chip, feels like a whole chunk can chip easily if not careful. But I will still buy this again as it's quite cool looking.

I got a bunch of OPI polishes on sale (Yay!) and this is one of them. I don't like white frost polish, but I figured the name might indicate that like other some OPI polish I own, it may look different on the hand. More golden than white... NOT! It does have extremely really hard to see with the naked eye, mi'nute gold shimmers in it, but with two then three coats. I just had a white pearl hue. She wasn't golden after all.

I'm surprised by how much I like this polish! It looks white with gold sparkles in the bottle, but it dries to a pale gold on your nails. I love metallic polishes and I can see this being a great everyday color - it's understated and goes with everything. I usually shy away from gold because I'm pretty cool toned but I can totally pull this one off. It would look especially nice with very tan skin.

This did not go on golden in any way. It was more of a metallic white color, which I was not very fond of. Also, this chipped very quickly. Won't repurchase.

This is my HG of nailpolishes. I'm fair with peachy undertones, so when I wear it on my fingers and toes it looks golden with white shimmers. I love this color for summer and winter and it looks great on every occasion. I wear this everysingleday. It's amazing, and i'm totally in love with it !

This is from the 2008 Beyond Chic Collection, which is part of their yearly Softshades release. While I think OPI's effort to go big 3 free is a step in the right direction for all intents and purposes, I don't think it's right that I have to add thinner to a brand new bottle of polish. I mourn the consistency of the old chemical-laden formula, which was perfect in application no matter how many times I used that bottle-- namely Vampire State Building, Red Red Rhine, and Russian to a Party. I know I've used those at least 3x each.
Now on to the review of She's Golden. While opaque in 3 coats, it got thick rather quickly and I got little tiny bubbles. Yes, I did my manicure away from a fan and direct vent source. I also didn't shake it like a salt shaker. I tried my best to make the coats as thin as possible to avoid bubbles, but it seemed to get thicker as I went along. Mind you, this is a brand new bottle of polish I bought from Ulta that I reached to the back of the display just days after they put it on the floor just to ensure I didn't get a bottle that someone decided to make their own tester. Some nails got bubbles, others didn't. It is a beautiful soft white shimmer that's not pure white out white, not exactly off white. The golden shimmer gives it a hint of gold color to it.
It is a perfect all occassion type color that you wouldn't notice any tip wear or chips immediately. I haven't had it on for more than 2 days now, so I can really say what the long term wear would be like yet. So far no chips or tip wear. I normally use Orly Bonder b/c & Sec N Dry t/c with my OPI polishes (both old & new formula) and get at least 5 days wear out of it.
Overall, I love this color. I'm gonna make it work. I just wish the formula didn't get thick so quickly.
