My own little pot of gold

Hey there :) When cheap Australian nail polish brand Ulta3 came out with a glitter collection, I knew I needed at least two of the six polishes. One of them being Pot of gold. I don't own many gold glitters and the yellowy gold was totally calling my name ;) Rather than layering it over a black base, I decided to go for a dark blue - cue OPI Roadhouse blues. Definitely my favourite dark blue ♥

One coat of Pot of gold over two coats of Roadhouse blues.

I found that the yellowy gold reminded me of the gold leaf nail polish which are all the trend right now. They don't look all that similar in the photos but when I held my hands at a distance and squinted a little, I was happy to find gold leaf nail polish adorning my nails. I'm not going to fork out the money for the real deal so hey, a girl can dream, can't she? ;)

Do you own anything like this gold glitter? Which glitter polish is your favourite right now? :)

Thanks for reading!

    I thought this was one of the pure gold topcoats too at first glance - I'll be keeping my eyes open around Ulta3 bins, this looks great!

  5. Thanks haha! I like the thought of having my own 'gold leaf' top coat... ;) Keep your eyes peeled for it definitely!
