Hi guys! Since you really seemed to like my P2 post from last week I thought I would show you another pretty I bought from them recently. This is actually a really funny polish and even though it probably isn't unique I hadn't seen a polish like this before. The picture below is the same bottle, photographed twice and put in one image and I think you can probably guess by the name, what's going on here!
P2 So gold is an effect topcoat that needs to be shaken for optimal effect. As you can see from the bottle on the left, the gold particles (it's not real gold btw) are very heavy and settle on the bottom of the polish. You can actually use it like this to get the tiiiiiniest hint of golden shimmer, or, you can shake it up for maximum sparkle.This polish is not like the different brands of 'gold leaf topcoat' that are available. It doesn't have big flakes of metal. Instead it has fine shimmer particles that are just a bit larger than normal shimmer.
For this manicure I used a base of China glaze Let's groove and applied one coat of So gold. When shaken this topcoat is very dense and one coat gives a wonderful rich effect. So gold has quite a watery consistency but it's not runny at all. It applies very easily and evenly so you don't have to worry about getting an uneven layer of the gold. Removal is very easy as well, the particles act like normal shimmer, even though they are a bit larger, and don't end up all over your hands.
I really like the look of this topcoat. The gold is very sparkly and clear and I love the effect over a darker polish, it looks so luxurious!
What do you guys think? Do you like this look? Or do you prefer a gold leaf topcoat instead? Tell me in the comments, and see you next week!
