I thought it would be a good way to start August with gold, naturally! As I have written in my previous post I am quite enjoying warm goldy shades at the moment, read more here: Strong Eye & Lip Trend... Also the metallics are going to be huge in the Fall 2012! So if I won't find any other cool gold metallics I am happy to just have this one.. I really really love it, like really!! It was actually quite funny when I was skyping with my mom just after having applied the Essie Good As Gold and I was showing her something which she totally ignored because she was fascinated by my gold tips... Essie Good As Gold is one of the five shades from the Mirror Metallics Collection that came out in July this summer! Which makes it the third collection this summer [the other two: Essie Poppy-Razzi (came out in May) + Essie Bikini So Teeny (June)]!!!
It's a really cool colour, a champagne gold... It's the first time that I actually liked the finish so much that I decided to skip my beloved topcoat, it feels incredibly luxurious and it looks it too... It dries matte and super fast on it's own... I'm not sure if it's just this collection or if it's the new formulation in general, but also the brush is very different to the usual thin brush, this one has a flat-ish wide brush... And the formulation is so opaque that if you just apply one coat! Usually it's pretty hard to find a good metallic, often they can be grainy and look much worse on your nails than in the bottle, Good As Gold is impeccable! I doubt I will find any other metallics that I will love as much as this one... If you could only get one metallic, I'd say this one is it!
