Wheel K7: Gold Foils, Metallics, and Shimmers

Since gold polishes are popular for the holiday season, that's what I decided to go with for this Nail Wheel Wednesday. These are mostly foil and metallic finishes (I'm still not entirely sure where the line is between the two—foil has more sparkles but how few sparkles make something fall into the metallic category is unclear to me). This wheel reflects my preference for cooler toned golds; there some warmer, yellower ones here, but they're the minority.

There's plenty of destashing opportunities on this one. The definite keepers are 6, 10, 15, 16, and 17. Of the others, one representative of each broad category should be enough; let's say 3, 12, and 20. Just as soon as I hire my destashing assistant, I'll get her right on that.


  1. Wow! That nail wheel looks like a million bucks. :D I was a bit surprised to find that my instant favorite was Wet n Wild!

  2. Many and beautiful, thanks for sharing this!

  3. That mini NOPI is cute...I don't recall seeing a mini in that brand.
