Burberry Gold & Oxblood Iconic Colour Nail Polish

Burberry Gold No. 447 Iconic Colour Nail Polish ($22.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a muted, yellowed beige with warm undertones and faint gold pearl shimmer. It was mostly opaque after two coats, and it wasn’t too thick or too thin to work with. This one bubbled slightly on me (and I tried applying it twice, just to be sure), unfortunately, so that was a real disappointment. Zoya Taylor (P, $9.00) has no shimmer. Cult Nails Mazo (DC, $12.00) is warmer, sheerer. L’Oreal The Statement Piece (LE, $6.99) is more glittery. Zoya Tomoko (P, $9.00) is more glittery. Guerlain Altoum (LE, $25.00) is metallic. China Glaze Fast Track (LE, $7.50) is darker. Zoya Cho (P, $9.00) is a cream. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Butter London Two Fingered Salute Nail Lacquer

Butter London Two Fingered Salute Nail Lacquer ($15.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted, patinaed green cream with copper micro glitter.” It’s a dirty, aqua-green with a hint of cooler, blue tones to it with very fine, copper sparkle strewn through it. I wanted to try this shade after readers suggested it as a possible dupe for Illamasqua Melange (which is hard to get in the U.S.), but Melange is a much warmer, medium grassy green more with more golden shimmer/micro-glitter. Cult Nails Grunge (P, $12.00) is very similar in the base color but is a cream. China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On (LE, $7.50) is a lighter cream. Zoya Bevin (P, $9.00) is bluer and has a cream finish.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gatsby, Patsy, Cora Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquers

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gatsby (110) Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.43 fl. oz.) is a very light, muted rose gold with a metallic, foil-like finish. It’s almost like a rosy silver-pewter kind of color. It was opaque after two coats, and it had minimal visible brush strokes (but there were a few). It dried down quickly and applied easily. NARS Pastorale (P, $20.00) is darker. MAC Shimmerfish (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, darker. Chanel Rose Moire (LE, $27.00) is darker. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire (P, $25.00) is warmer, darker.
