My parents have just got home from a week in Turkey, and my mom was super nice and brought back these polishes for me! What a pleasant surprise!
The brand is Golden Rose, an European brand that sells a wide range of cosmetics. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but they seem to have a lot of different nail polishes according to their web site. The holos and glitters look awesome!
The polishes my mom got is the Paris brand, these are just 3 Euro a piece, so that’s quite affordable.
Let’s check out the swatches!
#71 is a black creme. Two coats.
#53 is a blue shimmer, three coats.
#54 is a camera shy purple shimmer. The first pic is not color accurate, while the second is. Four coats.
And finally, #88, which is a turquoise jelly/creme. It looks blue here, but it’s more greenish in real life. I got a real Chanel Nouvelle Vague-vibe from this one. 6 (!) coats.
The formula on these is pretty much perfect. Not too thick and not too thin, glides on beautifully. Except for the turqouise that needed 6 coats to be opaque, they are nice and easy to work with. I actually like #88 best, so I guess I have a lot of painting in front of me.
These aren’t very unique, and can easily be replaced with similar colors from other brands. Here are some comparisons with polishes from China Glaze. (I didn’t compare #71 to anything, because a black creme is a black creme is a black creme. You get it.)
Coconut Kiss and Golden Rose Paris #54 are pretty dupey.
Blue Paradise and Golden Rose Paris #53 are similar as well.
The only turquoise-ish CG I have is For Audrey, but Golden Rose Paris #88 doesn’t look like that at all.
How’s that for a surprise!?
This definitely got me interested in more of these Golden Rose polishes, I’ll keep an eye out for them from now on.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!
