Sephora by OPI It's Real 18k Gold Topcoat Swatches/Review

I've had this post in my drafts for a while now and thought it was finally time to share it. I wasn't completely in love with the gold flake topcoats that were coming out late last year, but when the Sephora by OPI one went on crazy sale, I knew I had to try it. For $3, I'm really happy!


This is two coats of It's Real over Zoya Anja. I love how the gold looks over the deep red. Ultimately though, I would never have paid the full retail price of $30 for this; that's insanity! I think that there are a ton of colors that this would look awesome over (anything jewel-toned especially) and I'm excited to try it over a turquoise in the summer!

  5. This is really pretty! And at least it has a better price point than most the other gold flakie polishes.

  6. I can't believe you got this for $3! What a steal! It's just gorgeous, but I agree with you...I would NOT pay full price for this!

  10. $3! wow - I know I saw it when it was full price $18 - last summer and I did not think much of it from the sample bottle - I already knew Zoya and OPI were coming out with a large gold flakie so this one went out of my mind - it did not seem much different from some old Essies I have that spread on pretty much like this in gold and in silver. Then I heard this was around for $8 - but $3 is really cheap despite I still think it's not that exciting - but if I did not own one of the larger gold flakies I would feel different I am sure.
