Is this dupeable? I would say no. The finish is truly unique and so complex, I haven’t seen anything like it. Paul & Joe #27 Gilded is similar (check here), but slightly darker and has a similar finish but with a darker gold base. I am curious to find out how the new one from P&J coming out this summer will compare to it.
This was a present thanks to my sister who went to Japan about a year ago – I had given her a list of things to check out for me and asked her to pick out a pretty nail polish and this is what she brought home: Lunasol Nail Finish in Cool Beige #19, a pretty beige base with gold-silver complex sparkles and glitters.
This is the only Lunasol nail polish I have but I am really impressed with the formula. It’s rich and opaque and needs only 1 coat to get a full even finish. This mani is with 2 coats because that’s what the nail tech did. The color is chock-full of so many colors, I can’t even describe how complex it is. I’m not usually a huge fan of super-sparkles unless they are super sheer (ala Chanel Cry Baby or OPI Hollywood Blonde) but I really like this one and am glad my sister picked this one out.
