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! :D
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!? :D
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!
