The Prettiest Gold Glitter Nail Polishes - A Comparison of Shades and Brands

Updated on February 9, 2013


Gold glitter nail polish will add bling to any outfit. It matches with pretty much everything so you don't have to worry about matching your nails to your cloths. Regardless of the season, gold glitter polish always works. Aside from its beauty. another great thing about gold glitter is that it can be worn along, on top of another color, or used in nail art designs.

There are so many types of gold glitter nail polishes to choose from. There are different brands of polish, different shades, and different types of glitter. It can be quite difficult to choose just one so I will warn you ahead of time: these polishes are so gorgeous you're going to want them all.

OPI The Man With The Golden Gun


OPI The Man With The Golden Gun is an 18kt gold flake topcoat. It's a part of OPI's James Bond Skyfall collection.

What sets this polish apart from the others in the Skyfall collection is that this one consists of actual gold flakes. It's a little on the pricey side compared to the others. However, it's pretty cool.

The solid gold bottle is beautiful but, unlike most polish bottles, it doesn't show the formula how it ends up on your nails. What this means is that the finished product is a clear base with gold flakes throughout, not a solid gold finish.
