Maybelline Gilded Rose

*Purchased with my own money

You have no idea how much I LOVE this polish.  I just knew that it needed to be mine as soon as I saw swatches online. It's a shimmery slightly colorshifty golden base loaded with both gold and light pink hex shaped glitters.

I paired it with a nice nudey creme base and just let it do it's magic. I couldn't stop staring at my nails when I had them painted with this.  It's even inspired me to create a rose themed polish for an upcoming collection.  

 I did two coats over my aforementioned nude creme color.  You might be able to reach full coverage with this polish if you really work at it.  I know at two coats it was still quite sheer in spots, but I think it would look amazing on it's own.

Since I went on such a journey to find this color I'm not sure of it's availability.  First I looked online at Ulta and even on Ebay with no avail.  I finally wound up going to three different Walmart stores before I found it. If you can find this color I HIGHLY suggest picking one or maybe two up.


  1. You'll be happy to know they have added this shade to their permanent line :)

  2. I love when you find a polish that you can't stop staring at because it's just too pretty. :D

  3. I just got this too, from Walgreens I think. It's beautiful, the little black hexes make it so distinctive.
