Ever since O.P.I came out with the Skyfall limited edition nail polish series, my favorite was the gold leaf top coat “The Man With The Golden Gun”. During that time, it suddenly became very hard to actually find that top coat in the market and whatever I could find on Ebay or amazon was ~ $50-60 for one bottle of the gold leaf top coat. I decided to wait for a better option to come along. I had checked for the 18k gold top coat that Zoya markets in a hope to be able to own one but I never found it listed on their website. All I could ever find was the marketing picture of that top coat and never the product.
I was just browsing around at Peninsula Beauty and finally came across this monster. I immediately decided this wasn’t a chance to miss. It was a limited edition 18k white gold and silver top coat by O.P.I from Mariah Carey PURE edition. It’s retailed at $30 and peninsula beauty has it at 25% off so mine came out to be less than $30. It comes in a golden collectors box which is pretty neat. Amazon has it really cheap for $14.50 (which is 50% off) along with Prime which is a great bet.

As soon as I got home I had to try it out. This is definitely one of the best glitter top coat. The formula is neither too thick nor too runny. It’s the perfect consistency and glides onto the nail easy. It finishes very smooth, so smooth that you can absolutely do without a top coat, it won’t be rough when you run a finger over it once dry. The flakes are nice, dense and towards a smaller side which I like. I am not a huge fan of glitter/flakes that pop out very much. One coat over the base color is all you need. The picture shows the gold flake top coat over Sinful colors Black On Black (#103). All in all, this topper is so gorgeous and elegant that it’s sure to be fallen for.
