Hola my polish friends! For most of you, Friday means that your weekend is about to start. But for others like me, who work on the weekends, it just means that another week is almost coming to an end. Can you believe we are almost half-way through the first month of 2014?? Can you believe it’s actually 2014?! I’m not freaking out thinking that I’m getting older, even though I am, but I am thinking a lot about all the stuff I haven’t done. One of the things I constantly think about is that I had made a pact with my best friend, Daniel, to TRY climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro before we turned 30. Did that happen? NOPE. I’m now 34 and in terrible shape so I don’t think it’s going to happen anytime soon. I also just would NOT be able to afford it since it is quite expensive so now I’m stuck lamenting my poor planning and my even poorer finances. (Is poorer a word? It just sounds weird to me like “fork.”) Daniel still works in the travel industry and he still goes on vacations that make me jealous. His last vacation was to South Africa which he said was great. Any time he goes on any kind of vacation, I ask him to bring me back some polish. When he went to Puerto Rico last year, he brought me back my very first Bettinas. This year, he brought me back some Golden Rose polishes which I hadn’t really heard much about , but you know me: always happy to try something new! The polish I have to share with you today is Golden Rose 09 so let’s take a look at my swatches.
Golden Rose 09 is a hot pink polish…hello! Daniel sure knows my favorite colors! From looking online, this polish line is supposed to cover in one coat, but I didn’t think that was an accurate claim. The first coat covers well, but it definitely needs a second coat. I am not too sure where this brand really comes from, but I’ve never seen it in the US. It’s such a ME color that I am totally in love with it.
A big thanks to Daniel for such an awesome polish (1 of 2) that he brought back for me…even if I do force him to buy me gifts. hahaha Anyway, what do you think of this polish? Is this a brand that you’re familiar with? Let me know if there is something you have been wanting to do but haven’t gotten a chance to do yet. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you’re having a nice Friday.
