Golden Lady ~ 400 and H&M ~ Look at Me


Golden Lady ~ 400  
Rose shimmery foil

This Golden Lady is rose pink but packed with silvery foil. Sweet Aylin sent me this gem in a swap. The formula is great; the polish applies very easily. Pigmentation is fantastic for such a light polish: It was opaque in one coat.

One coat – no top coat yet:



Isn’t the shimmer just fantastic? I’ll try to use this as a stamping polish as well – I’m almost positive that it’ll work!

Then I choose a polish from H&M called “Look at Me”. It’s red with a metallic finish. I thought it would fit the Golden Lady perfectly. I applied dabs of red with an eyeshadow applicator. I just dabbed 2-3 times on each nail, and here’s that step:


That looks pretty funny, don’t you think? 
Then I took my stamping plate DRK-B, and stamped with a no name white stamping polish. I’m amazed over how big these designs are! I’m so glad I finally ordered this fantastic plate, ‘cause I’m sure I’m going to use it a lot!

When I’ve stamped I ended up by applying a coat of Poshé top coat.
Here’s how it ended up looking:


I like the effect of the two colours underneath the stamp. I considered a “real” gradient, but I wasn’t really in the mood for it anyway.

Dear ladies – what’s the verdict, please? :)


Opacity: 10/10
Colour, prettiness: 7/10
