Somehow I ended up with four gold foils while searching for my perfect gold foil last year. FOUR. There's nothing wrong with this one and I feel kind of bad about letting it go because Madeline really likes it ... but ... four. Trying to pare the remaining three down to TWO will be bad enough.
The first two pictures are the most color-accurate. It rained after I got the sunny pics, and I really would have liked to get more of those. I give up with Virginia weather.
Three coats with Poshe.
Not too much to say here -- this is the kind of yellow/champagne-y gold foil that I like because it's not too warm on my skin tone. This had an average dry time with Poshe and dried to a smooth finish. Two coats would have been enough for opacity, but I messed up two fingers and went with three. The formula on this one was a bit watery compared to Orly Luxe and even China Glaze Midnight Kiss, and I feel like the foil particles in this Revlon were a little closer to the ones in Orly Luxe. I have Luxe and I love it, so I don't need to keep this.
Gold Coin debuted late in 2010 as part of Revlon's Heavenly Metals collection with Silver Dollar and Copper Penny. I think I bought mine at CVS back when I thought this was going to be limited edition and I didn't have Orly Luxe yet. However, I'm pretty sure this is a core Revlon shade now. It's a really good polish if you're looking for a gold foil and you can't find Orly Luxe (I prefer the Orly because I think it's a little more opaque).
What's your favorite gold foil? What was the last polish you gave up because you had similar ones that you liked better? I think every polish collector should have at least ONE gold foil in her stash ... I find that golds are more of a staple metallic for me since they're fairly versatile.
Happy Sunday and thank you for reading! Mwah. xo
