Last night was the first home football game for my alma mater high school, where the school colors are black and gold. I was attempting a manicure that was a gold bottom and a black crackle over it, but well - I had some issues. One of the first golds that I thought to wear was China Glaze 5 Golden Rings, from the Loves You Snow Much collection. I used a base coat of Zoya Get Even, 3 coats of polish and a top of nubar Diamont. The formula was a tiny bit thick, but not unmanageable.
As you can see in the sun, this isn't a fully opaque glitter - more of a yellow gold glitter in a slightly yellow base. While it's not completely sheer either, it just wasn't going to work for the look I was trying to achieve last night.
In the shade, the color looks more opaque but it's still not fully there. I also pulled the glitter up on my index finger a bit.
Finally indoors with the flash - it really gave me lobster hands for some reason with this color. I think this would be a lot better as a layering polish than a stand alone.
