Monday Blues: Golden Rose Galaxy 12

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday so it's time for some blue. This is the last of the Golden Rose polishes I had to show you and it's also the sparkliest of them all. The Galaxy line is a fairly new one from Golden Rose. It contains lots of glittery textured polishes in all kinds of color combinations. Of course I had to try the blue one as my very first. Here's how it looks.

As you can see in the picture, there's a lot of glitter in this one. The star of the show is definitely the silver holographic glitter. The effect was hard to capture on camera but it's pretty strong in real life. This polish seems to be a pretty good dupe for OPI Get Your Number. I don't own it so I'm not sure if the shade is identical but the glitter surely is. Here's a photo that shows the holo effect better.

The polish isn't very opaque so 3 coats are needed if you use thinner ones like I do. It applies easily and dries to a very gritty texture. You can actually feel all the glitter pieces on your nail. Maybe that's something people like but it's a tad too textured for me. From all my textured polishes this is the roughest one. I took some pictures for you and then added two coats of top coat. It leveled out nicely and became even sparklier.

I wore it like this for a few days and loved it a lot. It's so much better than feeling that rough texture on your nails. Plus the holo effect shows up nicely with top coat.

Whether you like this with or without top coat, you can find it on the Golden Rose Romania website along with many other gorgeous polishes. And if you are a blue lover you can check out lots of blues in the links below!

Have a great week!

  1. What a gorgeous blue texture! Its nice :)

  2. In cazul acesta imi place mai mult fara top coat. Foarte frumoasa oja, imi place mult efectul subtil de holo!

  3. I love the textured polishes like that, that look like crushed gemstones. So gorgeous!

  4. I need to buy this one. I like it both with and without top coat :)

  5. Ce albastru intens! Foarte frumos arata si cu si fara top coat! Sincera sa fiu, nu mi se pare un dupe foarte fidel la Get your number, dar nevazandu-le laolalta, nu-mi dau seama exact. Asta pare mult mai albastru si celalalt nu tin minte sa aiba glitter holo. Daca vrei, ti-l aduc sa le compari :)
