The New Fad – Rose Gold Everything! Discover Kara’s Top 3 Rose Gold Acrylic Nail Polishes!

Softer, and some say prettier, than true gold, rose gold has warm dusky pinkish notes, turning a bright-as-sun gold into a gentle sunset glow. As a precious metal, rose gold is a 75% gold and copper alloy mix that was first discovered by Carl Fabergé, designer of the famous Russian eggs and jeweller to the Tsars. Recently, however, the color found prominence with Apple’s rose gold iPhone, and now it crops up everywhere – from the catwalk to kitchen appliances. 

Rose gold is associated with decadent style, refinement and luxury, which is hardly surprising knowing its background, and it can encourage calmness and dissipate feelings of anger. Complementing rich creams, lilacs and teal blues, it looks stunning paired with soft, dove greys or a smokey blue. 

Here are my very favorite rose gold nail polishes. 

1) ILNP Holographic Nail Polish – Juliette 

What Makes it Great

The ever reliable ILNP have produced a stunner here. The ultimate in luxurious prettiness, this is glittery and sparkly, all set within a dusky pink rose polish. Classy and gorgeously feminine with the promise of sublime Bohemian decadence, it evokes feelings of desert sands stretching for miles, with the vast sun glinting off grains held within windswept dunes.

Durable, too, it lasted into the third week before it developed a small chip. 

Where it Could be Improved

Like many holographic polishes, it did take time and patience to remove it completely.

The Final Verdict

The color and the glitter together make up a truly beautiful nail polish - a must-have for any manicure kit.

2) essie Nail Polish – Buy Me A Cameo

What Makes it Great

With undertones of mocha, Buy Me a Cameo is rich and full-bodied. Almost antique rose in color, it’s a really unusual shade, and although this isn’t a glitter based polish, the topcoat allows the true color to shine forth. I paired mine with a warm cream and used a nail stamp kit, and I’m pleased I did because the polish remained looking great for over two weeks.

Where it Could be Improved

The polish was a little thick at first, but after a few drops of acetone, it loosened up nicely.

The Final Verdict

If your manicure palette is lacking that touch of the unusual, this polish from Essie can provide it in spades. Simply stunning.

3) OPI Nail Polish – Made It to the Seventh Hill

What Makes it Great

Soft gold and antique rose complement each other beautifully, throw a shimmer on top and it’s perfect! I’m not sure where the name emerged from, but with this super pretty polish from OPI, who cares! Suiting any skin tone, and lending a touch of class to every look, I love this. Luckily for me, then, that it remained damage free for well over two weeks. 

Where it Could be Improved

There was a tiny amount of staining once I’d removed the polish, so I would recommend using a base coat.

The Final Verdict

Elegant, with bags of style, this is a cool, chic shimmery polish. Just perfect for any occasion.
