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! ♥
