A shiny gold polish. It has a bit of a metallic finish and because of that it did go on a little streaky but still opaque. For me this is a nice fall color for the nails

Save your money. I have never seen a nail polish that is more difficult to apply. A streaky mess that is not worth the effort. Even the color payoff is disappointing. You read a lot of raves...

This is one of those colour that I can't help but keep looking at! Such a pretty rose gold/coppers, was never into metallics but this polish makes me want to buy a couple more. I don't think this...

Gorgeous color! I'm a big fan of metallic nails! I already often wear a gold from Zoya and wanted to try a rose gold! So glad I did! It is not as beautiful on my warm, tan skintone as gold is, but...

I got my first bottle of this from my grandma, who was so impressed with how it dries basically instantly. It does chip rather quickly, but I just keep it in my purse for touch-ups--it's very...

Bought this thinking it would be a pretty copper, I haven't worn it since. It made my nails look orange instead of bronze or gold with my skintone. I have used it for my tips with a nude sheer,...

Good for an experimenter like myself, but simply too much effort required in the making, tbh. While this polish isn't totally terrible, the colour is just short of the mark (it isn't a rose gold,...

Yes, on its own it is too warm for many skin tones, but top it with a gold glitter or flake and it is amazing. I have fair , cool skin and this combo is my go-to over the holidays. It's less...

I would not buy again. Gold at first, then it oxidized and turned into a very pretty rose gold. The sun helps with the color. I love the color, but I was very disappointed with the formula. It was...
