Golden Rose Galaxy ~ #11



Golden Rose Galaxy ~ #11
Turquoise jelly with glitter, bars and hexes. Textured.

I got this polish in a swap with my sweet friend Aylin from Posh Nail Art. It was on my wishlist because I love this colour and glitter can almost never go wrong. Little did I know that the polish is also textured! (Yes, I know it was on my wishlist, but I can’t read Turkish, haha). Anyway, I don’t mind at all, it was just such a surprise.

The formula is good and the polish is easy to apply. It takes two coats to achieve full opacity and the drying time between the layers is good.

Here’s what the pretty polish looks like; 2 coats, no topcoat:


I’m not a huge bar glitter fan, but I like this polish because there’s so much going on in it.


I stamped on it. And since the colour reminded me of the ocean, I stamped a wavy design on it. I found it on Moyou London’s stamping plate Sailor Collection-07, and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White. And! I bought a stamper with a head that isn’t white, so I can actually see where the pattern is on the stamping head! I bought it in a set with three heads on Aliexpress.com.

Seeeee my fine new stamping head:


I love the way this turned out.


There’s no topcoat involved on any of these pictures.



I added topcoat afterwards, and #11 is a topcoat thirsty lady! I applied two coats and it wasn’t smooth at all. I left it at that and was happy with it.

I got two other polishes in the Galaxy series: A blue and a purple. I can’t wait to try them too!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Glitter, bars and texture
Overall impression: Very cool and unique polish
Buy again: Yes

  1. It looks lovely stamped. I have this one and I call it slightly weird yet charming; the bar glitter shines like crazy in it and it makes an impression!

  5. Well, it's a really nice colour :) It's a shame I've never tried this Galaxy collection and I've got GR in a store next to my school :D

    1. You have? I'm totally envious, but my wallet is happy that I don't have such a store near me :D

    2. Oh yes, it's a disaster for my wallet, so I can at least try not to visit it so often :)

    3. I understand that! I think I'd try to limit myself too, because they really make a lot of pretties :)
