Essence Metal Glam ‘Steel-ing the Scene’ Gold Topper

Essence Metal Glam 'Steel-ing the Scene' Gold Topper review swatchI don’t know if you remember, but somewhen last year, the blogosphere went crazy for the gold leaf top coat that OPI came out with as a part of their Skyfall Collection. I really liked the look of it but when I found out about the price, which I think was about 40€, I knew that the nail polish would never become a part of my nail polish collection. Now, a year later, Essence luckily came out with an incredible dupe for just a little over 2€ and I was determined to hunt down a bottle for myself. I went to six different drugstores in hopes of getting a hold of it, but I had no luck. It was sold out everywhere and right when I was about to give up, I saw it at the Essence & Catrice blogger event I attended last week. Needless to say, it quickly made its way into my ‘shopping’ bag, and today, it finally made an appearance on my nails. I’m obsessed. You can see how it looks like in the photo below, where I’m wearing it over the Kiko nail polish I blogged about here. So, who else is obsessed with this topper?

    Kako lepo skupaj pašeta. Se mi zdi, da čez temnejše lake lepše izgleda. Jaz ga imam trenutno tudi na nohtih.:)
