Golden Rose Galaxy ~ #29 and #36



Golden Rose Galaxy ~ #29 and #36
A couple of glitter toppers

There’s a special story connected to this post, and I know you’re going to enjoy it.

I went to Turkey recently, and eventually I ended up in a Golden Rose store with my friend Aylin from Posh Nail Art ♥ *waves* Hiii sweetie!
Anyway, there was a major power outage in Turkey that day, and the shops that don’t have their own generators were all dark. They were still open though, you just needed to pay cash, because there was no internet in the shops either, meaning no paying with credit cards.

Anyway, a mere power outage is not going to stop me from buying polish, and especially not Golden Rose, which is a brand I really love. It’d take the finale, the deciding battle, of a million year intergalactic war occurring in the shop I’m standing in, to even make me break my stride. So - I remained a cool cucumber, walked around in the darkness picking polishes that looked nice. I also picked the two I am going to show you shortly; they are both from the Galaxy collection, and I thought they were textured polishes. Little did I know that these two particular polishes are toppers – and #36 has got bar glitter in it too! O_o

I am going to show them to you over black. That’s also a Golden Rose, but from the Matte collection. It’s #12 and it’s a plain black polish. Easy to work with and covers in one single coat. Perfect!

So here they are. #29, black and white glitter and shredded holo glitter, and #36, turquoise bar glitter and hexes with pink shimmer. One coat over black, topped with topcoat:


The “black” one, #29, is the bottle I’m holding on these pictures, I’m going to use that for galaxy nails at some point.


Here are the three bottles.

  
I bought other Golden Rose polishes in the darkness that day. Stay tuned to see if I was in for more surprises! :D

Number of coats: 1
Drying time: Good
Finish: Glitter: Shredded, hexes, bars.
Overall impression: Good toppers
Buy again: Yes

    1. I'm not a great fan of bar glitter either, but in this case I don't mind so much :D

  5. Maybe that is the way you should do polish shopping to avoid getting home with the same kind of polish you always end up buying!
