Take Flight in These Angel Wings

China Glaze Angel Wings Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicate gold dust glitter.” It consists of fine gold glitter with what looks to be some holographic glitter, too–there are little prisms of color throughout that dance and catch the light. All of the glitters are suspended in a clear base. Ozotic #904 has a different texture and isn’t holographic–it just had a (somewhat) familiar look at a glance. China Glaze I’m Not Lion has a similar texture and composition–it’s just a lighter, paler gold. Milani 3D is similar, as it has holographic glitter along with gold shimmer, but it’s more opaque and the gold comes from the shimmer/base color.

This shade has really good coverage; it is mostly opaque after two coats on its own, and it yielded quite a bit of coverage in a single pass layered over China Glaze Merry Berry.  It wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it didn’t feel bumpy.  All of the glittery particles spread out evenly without problems.  I typically get a week of wear with China Glaze’s formula.

    I’m sure some glitter obsessed people will love this. It’s definitely not for me, though.

    It’s like a gold version of Fairy Dust!

    I’m wearing this today and I love it! It’s one of the easiest glitters to remove too.

    Beautiful coverage, but the colour and uniform size are meh to me.

  6. the glitter seems a little too dense for my liking.

    I have read that this is a dupe for Ulta’s exclusive from last year called Ultamate Holiday.

  8. Ooh, I just saw a review of OPI Another Polish Joke? and it looked pretty similar! Maybe a bit less yellow.

    For gold nail polish, I really love OPI’s Goldeneye :T

Christine! I was so excited coming here and seeing that you put up swatches of Angel Wings!! It’s gorg!! I’m defo going back to Sally’s this week!
