SensatioNail has released a Liquid Metal Collection - and ‘Going for the Rose Gold’ is my favourite of the five new metallic shades. SensatioNail is Nailene’s at-home gel polish, which I’ve become very attached to since my initial review last year, where I illustrate how it works - here.
It’s not easy to find the perfectly toned gold polish for pale skins - some look too yellow, white or orange toned. This particular rose gold is very flattering and I think would work on most skin tones. I love that it’s so sparkly without the grit of glitter - and yet applies very smoothly for a metallic polish, none of the usual streaks. In fact I found this even easier to apply than a standard SensatioNail gel polish.
Above, with flash and below, in natural light, it’s a very wearable shade that looks glam under lights in the evening but subtle enough for work by day, which is important as these babies stick around for 2 weeks! The opacity is excellent - I used two thin coats for this.
The five Liquid Metal shades are:
- Rock my Emerald - Deep Emerald Green (my second favourite)
- Going for the Rose Gold - Pink-toned gold (above)
- Iron Mama - Deep Purple
- Don’t Metal Me - Magenta
- Steel a Kiss - Steel Blue
All colours, starter kits and essentials are available at sensationail.co.uk, where you can currently buy all 5 Liquid Metal shades for the price of 4 (usually £12.50 each) or 4 regular polishes for the price of 3 (until 10am, Fri 27 Sep - usually £10 each).
Have you tried gel nails - and do you fancy doing them yourself?
