Gold Finger - 3 Gorgeous Gold Polishes

I've seen several tweets over the past week or so looking for gold polish recommendations so I thought I'd show you three of my favourites. Sally Hansen's Gilty Pleasure, Models Own Gold Rush and Essie's Good as Gold. These are, by no stretch of the imagination, the only golds in my collection but they are the ones I reach for most often, so let's have a little look, shall we?

Sally Hansen's Gilty Pleasure (€8.50) is part of the seriously fabulous Complete Manicure range, meaning you need no base or top coat. It's a subtle champagne gold with just a hint of sparkle. It's buildable to a deeper gilt colour but this is how I wear it, two coats and out the door. Flattering and oh so easy to wear.

Models Own (€6 in Republic) is the blingingest in your faciest gold that I have in my possession (so far). This is perfect for bright night out nails or stunning in the sunshine on holidaying tootsies. You can be guaranteed that Gold Rush will get your nails noticed.

Essie's new Mirror Metallics range (€12.99) boasts 5 new silver based metal look polishes. With my love of TopShop bling though, I couldn't justify hoovering up the lot. At €12.99, they're pricey but I couldn't pass Good as Gold. It reminds me a lot of Barry M's 320 Foil but without the gold Tippex finish. This is a beautiful choice for a Wedding nail, be you the Bride or the tipsy guest.

Any of these polishes would suit the Bronze Goddess manicure perfectly, my go to manicure when I'm in a rush (a gold rush)(ho, ho, ho).

Do you have a grá for the goldiness? Got any recommendations for others that I might try?

I'm sure you heard about Rihanna's $5,000 bottle of gold nail polish or whatever at the Grammys. I love a great polish as much as the next girl, but COME ON. These shades of gold are just as beautiful, without the flakes of 24-karat gold that are just going to get wiped off with acetone later anyway. Dig 'em, lady!

Wasn't that just lunacy?! There's a line where ostentatious becomes obnoxious and I reckon $5k on polish is waaaay over that line..

Thanks so much for the comment Lady x

thats gas, i have gilty pleasure on me at the mo, i bought it for my mam for christmas and have "borrowed" it, i love it, and it stays on for ages, the only thing i don't like bout the SH complete manicure is, it takes aaaaaages to dry, about an hour and a half after i put it on the other night, i put my hand under my head and it smudged, couldn't believe it, i had put on 2 coats so maybe thats why, but if i use the insta dry it really does help dry it much quicker, ah well, ya live and learn lol

I believe what you wrote made a great deal of sense.
But, think on this, suppose you were to write a awesome headline?
I am not suggesting your content is not solid., but suppose you added a title that makes people desire more?
I mean "Gold Finger - 3 Gorgeous Gold Polishes" is a little boring.
You might look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you've written.
In my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
