Today I painted my nails with a nail polish I thought I couldn’t get my paws on anymore: Essence 05 BBC Golden Sands from their Sun Club Bondi Beach collection. The collection is already out since May here and it includes five nail polishes. A pink, a Tiffany blue, a medium blue with a teal hue, a bright orange and a bronze gold.
At my local drugstore I could buy the first four but either the bronze gold was already sold out or the drugstore got a smaller display again in which not all products are included – which sadly already happened with the Holographics collection where the smaller display was missing Lilac and Holoberry.
Luckily last week I finally found Golden Sands at a drugstore on my way to work.
Yum! My skintone might be too light for a color like Golden Sands (I keep wanting to write Golden Spurs which sadly is still one of my untrieds) but it’s so pretty to look at. It applies a tiny bit gritty but for a reason I don’t mind: bronze gold glitter flecks! Essence.. please make more nail polishes with glitter or glass flecks.
Besides the little grittiness (which funnily matches the name Golden Sands) the nail polish applied really well and was opaque after two medium coats. On my nail wheel I needed three though.
I am really happy that I found it after it has been sold out for weeks at my local drugstore. If you love gold nail polishes and a store near you sells Essence including their limited editions I recommend to pick it up.
Do you like gold nail polishes and if yes which one is your favorite?
Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the week! ♥
