Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro Nail Polish in Gold Silk- Possibly my favorite nail color ever.

$3.99 for 0.45 fl oz.
Today I present to you one of my all-time favorite nail polishes, and when I bought it I wasn't even sure I would like it! This is not your typical gold, which may be a big part of why I love it so much (I had to give away my Chanel Gold Lame polish because it was so so yellow). I have yellow undertones in my skin, some people call it 'golden' tone, and most golds are just too gold for me. This Gold Silk is perfect, a frosty metallic finish which reminds me of rose gold because you can just feel the skin-y pink and flesh tones in it. I'm really so in love with it.

I use a good base coat and two color coats to get the coverage and staying power, and then finish with a shinier top coat (in this case the same Sally Hansen Green Tea & Bamboo Nail Strengthener for both base and top coats). The brush for Rimmel Lasting Finish Pros are wider and flatter than the typical brush I've had in my polishes, for example e.l.f. nail polish, and I like how easy it is to cover the nail but not your cuticle. My polish skills have vastly improved over the course of Rimmel use, hurray!

The picture with flash is actually a shot 4 days into this application, and still going strong. The daylight photos were taken 6 days after application, and they still look awesome, except now you can see my nail growing out from the cuticle bed!
