NYX Gilded Glitter

I went to the mall on Thursday and at Sephora I sampled the Sephora by OPI 18K Gold Top Coat. It's pretty but I don't know if I could bring myself to spend $30 on a bottle of nail polish. Instead, I took home one of my first NYX that I found in a clothing store for $1.99, Gilded Glitter. It's a cheap, alternative version of the OPI and while it's not made of real gold, nor is it a dupe, it's good enough for me. I layered it over Sinful Colors Rise and Shine.

I absolutely love how it looks! The effect is amazing. It really adds something special. It's slightly tinted so it changed the look of my base, but I don't mind that much. While it can't compare to the look of the real gold in the OPI, it's still beautiful.

It was a tad thick, but easy to work with. It was dense enough at one coat, but I wanted to use a second. The pieces lay smooth and there was hardly any texture at all, but some random pieces stuck out. One coat of top coat took care of that.

In the shade:

I'm in love with Gilded Glitter! It's really awesome. I can see myself using it a lot in the future. It's a good option for anyone who wants a gold flake polish but don't care if it's not the real thing and don't want to spend a lot of money either.


  1. Love this!! I thought it would tide me over of the 18K gold top coat but its not working so well =) I hear OPI is doing one for the James Bond collection so I may have to pick that one up!

  2. Glided Glitter is very pretty and definitely a great alternative! :-)
