Let me start out by saying gold isn't my color. I have never really liked gold jewelry because it looks odd with my skin tone. Obviously, the same thing goes for gold nail polish. I had one other gold (Finger Paints Key to My Art) and it looked horrible on me. I gave it to my niece in a big bag of polish I wanted to get rid of when I cleaned out my stash.
You may notice that I normally have good things to say about the polishes I show on my blog. I know this bothers some people; however, I always do lots of research before I buy a polish. I pretty much know I am going to like it when I buy it. One other point I would like to make is that if I do happen to buy a polish that I don't like or that looks bad on me, I'm probably not going to show it on my blog. I almost didn't show this one.
This isn't necessarily a negative review of this polish, it just doesn't look good on me. I wouldn't have picked this polish, but I took advantage of that Coterie sale where you received 3 Butter London polishes and a matte top coat for $11. I had most of the colors they were offering, so I pretty much had to get this one. I also chose Knackered (which I am excited about) and Pillar Box Red.
West End Wonderland is a clear base with gold and orange/bronze glitter. It looks very pretty in the bottle and I'm sure with the right skin tone, it would look great. You only need one coat because the glitter is very dense. I didn't use anything for a base for this so you can see how dense the glitter is. This polish would look pretty for a fancy holiday party.
So there you have it. A semi-negative review on my blog. You won't find many!
If you have a blog, do you post reviews of polishes you don't like?
