|Chanel Nail Colour in Gold Fiction|
I had forgotten that a few years ago I had picked up a bottle of Chanel Gold Fiction, a limited edition nail polish. For some reason it had been hidden amongst a number of Nails Inc shades that had been relegated to my second division storage box, but I thought it was time to see what this colour had in store (unlike other Chanel shades you can't see the colour of the polish from the outside). Unfortunately, it would appear there was a very good reason why this polish had been relegated!
I normally don't mind golds, but this shade is everything I hate. It is far too yellow for my taste, clashes with the pink in my skin tone and there was still visible nail line after 4 coats of polish. To me it looks tacky, and I almost feel like I am blaspheming saying that about a Chanel product! I have numerous OPI shades that could be described as gold which I really like, but something about Gold Fiction just makes my skin crawl. I officially hate it.

For those gold lovers out there (Jeanie, I'm looking at you!), what are your favourite shades for manicures?
