Golden Rose 202

Hi guys! It's Monday again and that makes me really sad. I've survived the first day of classes but now I have to start studying again. Before that I just wanted to quickly show you this polish by Golden Rose. It's not a shade I would normally buy, but I was surprised by how much I liked this polish and I was actually able to use it in some nice nail art (stay tuned cause I will show you in my next post). 

Golden Rose 202, indoors, artificial light
This is a very nice raspberry creme that came out a little more pink in the photos. Actually I don't know if I should call this pink or purple, I guess it's somewhere in between. I have compared it to my Barry M Bright Purple and it looks like a darker version of the GR. 

My experience with Golden Rose polishes has been mixed. This has a surprisingly good formula. It really glided on the nail, was opaque in 2 easy coats and required almost no cleanup. I could use a cliche and say that it practically applied itself. It also dried very fast to an awesome glossy finish. The pictures show two coats with top coat, but I assure you it was just as shiny without it. 

I only wore this for around two days so I can't comment on durability. All I can say is that it had almost no tip wear when I removed it. I was pleasantly surprised by this polish and actually liked how it looked on my nails.  I'm looking forward to trying other Golden Rose polishes and I hope their new line of magnetics will soon reach our stores!
