This polish is what I would call a tarnished gold. It is full of micro flakie glitter. It could also be thought of as a glass fleck. The flakies are trapped in a sheer base. Application wasn't the best, some spots built up on my nails more than other spots. This is 3 coats, with the first coat being thin and easy to see the nail through. I think the large brush that Complete Salon Manicure bottles come with was more a detriment for applying this polish.
It is beautiful on the nail and it sparkles in almost any light. The flakies really capture the light and throw it back at you. I'm not usually a gold lover, but I am happily wearing and staring at this beauty. While this was a LE polish, I have heard many times that Golden Eye from the OPI Bond collection is a dupe. Though I don't have that polish so I cant confirm it.
