Swatch: Sally Hanson Complete Salon Manicure in Gilded Lily

When I first saw the bottle shots of the Sally Hansen and Prabal Gurung polishes I was totally in love with Gilded Lily.  When I saw swatches of it though...I was not impressed and decided to skip it.  Few months later it was on clearance at Target and for a little over $3 I figured I could pick up another gold polish.  Still wasn't in love with it and put off swatching it for a few months.

Then I finally decided to swatch it and OH MY I LOVE IT!!! This polish is not done any justice by any swatches I have found online.  It is a clear base packed with tiny gold flecks.  It makes me feel like I have covered my nails in gold foil.  It has amazing shine without the dreaded brush strokes if this was a gold frost.

This swatch was with four coats.  I could have done less if I had used a creme base, but the dry time was so fast it didn't bother me to do an extra coat.  It also has a very smooth finish compared to other glitters.  So glad I finally picked this one up!


  1. Hmmm, I do like that, it looks much prettier than the gold satiny ones I have. Reminds me of my Top of the World by Kleancolor. (Check it out if you see it, its awesome.)

    1. o0o0o looked up the Kleancolor and it does look awesome. I'm just happy this is a gold I don't have to worry about brushstrokes of doom! HATE brushstrokes!! lol
