I love gold. Actually, no I don't. I love platinum and silver. The only place where gold works for me is my eyes - hazel and gold, now that's what I'm talking about. In order to round out Essie's Luxeffects in the most diplomatic sense, I finally bit the bullet and had As Gold As It Gets painted on my digits last week. Quite frankly, I can't wait to get this particular pairing off of my nails. It's boring, blah and meh. My nail look is a triple threat that took me straight to boring town (no, this place doesn't really exist). Metaphorically speaking, boring town is about as bad as old lady pink nail polishes. Clinique was once the queen of old lady pink nail polishes - I think you get the point.
As negative as I've gotten about this gilded variant, it might be worth another go with say a blue or a teal. Maybe I should really blame my disappointment on the bland base colour.
For a closer look at all of Essie's Luxeffects polishes, here's a recap.
Which one is your favourite?
