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!
