Who needs Minx? OPI Dazzled by Gold!!

Big shout-out to mudmaskhoockie on MUA! She swapped with me and I'm so so so glad I finally got my hands on this lovely! It feels like sweet retribution because another polish from this collection, Visions of Sugarplum, was swap-lifted from me. :( So thank you my dear friend!

Now to the good stuff - here is OPI Dazzled by Gold:

Another shot for good measure...

My nails out on the town in DC - see the depth of the shimmer even in the dark? Dare I say it's...dazzling?

Even in the tiniest speck of candlelight, the polish just glows...

My obsession with metallic polishes continues! I love that they go with everything and add some modern oomph to any outfit.

Dazzled by Gold in particular is just gilded perfection! Not only is this a gold hue that I think works with my skin tone, but it is the same foil-y shimmer-y finish as my beloved OPI DS Glow! In the sun you can see the explosion of shimmer, but in low lighting it just smolders, which is even prettier. Because it looks so downright sexy even in the shade, I think that this will be a great pick-me-up in the winter season!

After my brief and doomed affair with Dior Gold Nugget, I felt that perhaps gold wasn't for me. (I also feel like a real chump for dropping so much money on a polish that I ended up not liking...) Luckily, Dazzled by Gold came into my life and showed me that there is a gold out there for everyone! It takes the cake in my collection as my number 1 gold, and as soon as I can get Gold Nugget to move out of the mansion, we will be in a monogamous golden relationship.

What is your favourite gold polish?

That is truly wonderful.
I don't have many.
I'll pick Misa Disco Queen. It is super-blingtastic.
Unfortunately it is a sulphurous shade of yellow/green/gold which suits me not one whit but it is eye-poppingly gold.

GIIIIIIIRRRRLLLL Dazzled By Gold is my jam. I love, love, love this polish. I declared it my favorite of 2009 even though it was an Ulta exclusive that appeared at the very end of the year. I just love it. Who needs Minx indeed! I'm so glad you finally got this little pretty.

Congratulations! This look lovely on you. I have trouble with golds as well and this is a favorite. Dazzled By Gold is my favorite, too. I got so lucky because I passed up the only bottle at Ulta before Christmas, then regretted it while I was out of town with no Ulta to be seen. When I came back, my first stop was Ulta and there was one bottle left - just waiting for me! If you can't get Visions of Sugarplums, see if you can find an Icy Iris by Finger Paints - they're dupes! Someone did a side by side comp, but her blog has been deleted. Here's Scrangie's post of the Finger Paint's holiday 2009 collection:

Wow, that is a very sparkly polish!

@hoochie - thank you my friend!! and yes it has gone to a very loving home :) That is why I keep my stash small - so all of my pretties can get the love they deserve! *HUGS*

@jaljen - I love how you rock the blingy gold even though you think it doesn't work for you tone-wise!! Hey if people are too distracted by sparkles they won't be looking at your skin....

@Steph - Woohoo!!! Sooo glad I got it! It seems universally adored :) I think this may become my jam as well.... :P I sound so dorky typing that.

@Aimee - Thank you!!!! I actually swapped Sugarplums away - I didn't like it on me. But she never sent me her item so basically stole it. Argh.

@Lolitadewdrop - It is definitely sparkly!!!

*drools* I love this! I have yet to try out a gold color on me, but bronze looks nice on me, so I should find a gold I like. :)

rijaH said...

Looks really cool :D I have a gold one from Gosh, its a bit foil like :)

kittytokaren said...

@Ashley - I love bronzes as well (DS Glow is my current favourite) so I think you would love a gold!

@rijaH - Thanks! And that Gosh sounds fab :)


Adrienne said...

Gold nail polish never appealed to me until I saw this one and knew that it was the right gold for me! This is actually the only gold nail polish I have and it's good enough for me! :) I'm glad you were able to enjoy this beauty!!

kittytokaren said...

@Adrienne - This is currently the only gold in my life as well (Dior Gold Nugget is in the swap pile!) and I am quite contented! :) I am so glad I could join the club!!!

I love this, but...I don't like it much on you. *ducks flying tomatoes*
