i really love gold shimmer. and neutrals. so a neutral with gold shimmer is just glorious to me. surprisingly, i prefer this $2 one to a four-times-as-expensive zoya version. here's the beautiful (but now discontinued) viva las vegas-
|2 coats pure ice viva las vegas|
the gold shimmer in this one really is insane. i love it. it's a shade that could be work-appropriate (for almost any job i can think of), but not boring in the slightest. i kept catching myself staring at my nails! in fact, i liked it so much that i didn't even feel the urge to stamp over it! gasp. . . .
like i said, though, viva las vegas came from a limited-edition pure ice collection that's not available any more. if this were a permanent shade, it would totally be on my list of beautiful $2 polishes. but alas, it's not (side note: i just spotted viva las vegas posted on ebay for $12.95. . . . ridiculous!). anyone know of any similar shades? does china glaze fast track come close? i know zoya makes one that looks deceptively similar in the bottle (zoya jules), but on me, it looks like total crap. who knows, it could work for you though!
