I FOUND IT !!!!!!!
And I feel a bit like a bond girl... so cue the music..
I found a dupe for a nail varnish I have been lusting after ever since I spied it adorning Lovely Cherry Sue's nails in this post for Paddy's Day.
I have been looking for a nice gold-foil polish to add to my collection for ages. The one that I do own (Avon Mirrorshine in Gold Foil) stains my nails terribly even if I use a base coat, so I never wear it unless I am willing to put up with yellow nails.
|One skinny coat and its almost opaque.... and no streaks...|
And while I was browsing my local Catrice stand (with my wonderful Mom who has come to visit me for a few weeks) I spotted this beauty hiding away in the corner of the stand...
I snapped it up, and refused to let go of it. It was the last bottle on the stand. And it was MINE!!!!
And I am "in the Love". I have worn this on my nails for the last 2 weeks. And I am not tired of its Glorious Gold Gorgeousness... and it doesn't stain!!!!!!!
|One thin coat of Goldfinger...|
Two thin coats and it is completely opaque, and it dries super quickly. Streaking is minimal (what looks like streaking is actually my nail ridges) and longevity is pretty good. I got 5 days before I had noticeable tip wear, and that was without a top coat.
|2 coats... of gorgeousness|
|Gold in the Sunshine|
The 2nd best bit (the Bestest bit is the Gorgeous Gold Goodness) is that Catrice 650 Goldfinger costs just €2.79 as opposed to Revlon Gold Coin, which comes in at €9, and way cheaper than Dior's Timeless Gold, (which www.Temptalia.com shows beautifully and I believe its in or around the €22 mark).
|the sun came out especially to shine on my nails...|
If another bottle of this magically appears on the stand I will snap it up and hide it with my back-up bottles of favourite polishes... just don't tell my husband....
