Playing with Revlon Gold Coast

When I purchased Revlon's Gold Coast, I was wondering what it would look like on my nails.  Well, I decided to play around with it today and got a little creative.  

Sinful Colors Amethyst (purple), Sinful Colors Paradise (blue), 
Wet 'n Wild Ebony Hates Chris (black), Revlon Gold Coast (by itself)
(more color accurate)

I put 2 coats of each of my chosen colors on and waited for them to dry.  Then I did one coat of Revlon's Gold Coast over each color (on my pinky nail is 2 coats of Gold Coast by itself).

And then I wanted to compare it to my Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure (the original flakie version).  Both are over Sinful Colors Amethyst.
When Hidden Treasure and Gold Coast are next to each other, you can see that they are definitely 2 different top coats, but Gold Coast does have a little bit of multi-colored spark hidden in there, just not a color-shifting tendency.

I would say, if you can find this polish, pick it up because it is so fun to layer over all kinds of colors.  It's one of those layering polishes that can really expand your polish wardrobe for not a whole lot of money (around $4-5, depending on where you find it).

If you do pick it up, let me know what you pair with it.

  1. Just bought this colour over the internet (allot cheaper) and so looking forward to putting it on.. Bought it to wear on its own with a tan on holiday but this is a brill idea to funk up my other huge collection of colours and add a summer glamorous twist.. Thanks!

    1. Enjoy your new polish! I think it looks good over just about anything.
