Rated 3 out of 5 by from good as gold Lovely shade that shifts between silver and gold, depending on the light. Just one problem: it starting chipping the first day. It literally peeled off one nail, in spite of the fact that I'd used both base and top coats. Reapplied it.... and the same thing happened again. Suggestions to make it more durable?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Pop! I bought this color because I decided I needed the staple of black, gold and silver in my collection. I've never bought essie nail polish before so I was hesitant in trying it out, but I love LOVE the color. It has a nice metallic pop to it without being too bright or shiny. It goes on smoothly, and doesn't chip in a few days like some of my other brand nail polish does. Since buying this I've bought 2 more and love them all equally :) Can't wait to add more to my collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Look I bought this and I instantly fell in love. It's the best thing ever and I really really like it. You only need to apply one coat for full effect and it's gorgeous and it goes great with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Essie Color I wanted a polish that was metallic gold, and of course Essie had the perfect polish. It's very metallic looking, especially once you add a shiny top coat.
