First off, I would like my readers opinions on how I do my nail polish posts. Personally I feel as though I am rambling on a bit much and I’m wondering if any of you really care to sit and read that much content on a single bottle of nail polish. I am basically thinking of using a different more simplified format which I will then use to create a database of sorts with the information about each polish that my readers will be able to access. This post will be a bit of an experiment and my tech support (Capt. Canada) will assist me in refining the appearance of the form and creating the database later if all goes well. Keep in mind that I’m still new to this game so I’m still finding my way as well as experimenting in order to find what works best for me. With that said, I would really appreciate your input so please give your honest opinions and feel free to throw any suggestions my way that you may have.
New Rating System: Poor, Okay, Average, Good, Excellent
Collection: Mirror Metallics Summer 2012
Color: Good As Gold
Price: €7,95 Germany, $8 (USD), £7.99 (UK)
Availability: I purchased mine at DM, but I’ve also seen the Mirror Metallics in Douglas stores in Germany. For those of you located in the UK, the Mirror Metallics are available at some Boots stores. This collection is still quite new but I haven’t run across any information about where this is available in
the States and Canada. In the US you can find this collection at CVS, Target, Walgreens and Ulta. I know, I’m as shocked as you are that we actually had access to something here in Germany before you did elsewhere.
My Two Cents: I really like this collection and feel they are some of, if not the best metallics I have had the pleasure of owning. For a gold polish I feel that Good As Gold is incredibly understated, in other words, it’s not garish, overtly flashy, nor is it a yellowish gold. It really does have more of a chrome or mirror finish. Keep in mind that when applying this polish, it is key to keep a decent amount of product on the brush to achieve this mirror finish. If your brush is too dry or becomes sticky, you will have streaks and other unsightly flaws.
Something Similar: Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure looked to be as close to a match as I could find although, it has a larger shimmer. Okay, I admittedly had a hard time with this one because it seems all the other gold nail polishes I came across had a much stronger yellow tone than Good As Gold. Which is why I included the comparison photo of China Glaze Champagne Bubbles. Please comment below if you know of something I may have missed though.
Have any of you ladies in the States come across this collection yet? If so please comment below and let me know where else they are available. As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.
