NOTD : Gold.

After reading Chars post here about this nail polish I was determined to get my hands on it. It sounded so cool. As out of the loop as it may seem I actually hadn't heard of a 'foil' effect nail polish before. So when I was up North today I found a 'Barry M' stand and went straight for this. It was £3.99 and also my first nail polish from 'Barry M' newbie haha. First things first I just love the effect it gives. As Char said in her post "It gives such a nice finish to the nails almost as if you had just dipped your nails into liquid gold." Which it really does. I just keep staring at them completely entranced by the shine off them (bit like a magpie) and it dries so quickly, literally in less than a minute my nails were dry. I was actually a little shocked... My only fault with this? How easy it chips, its like it is actually made of foil and has no resistance to anything, especially water. Slightly devastated with that but nothing a clear top coat shouldn't fix right? 
Have any of you tried this before? If not go out and buy it, you will be as mesmerised as I am right now (':

This looks really nice, I love shiny nail polish! Shame about the chipping :( but i'm sure, as you said, a topcoat will sort it out :) xx
