      A week earlier, I spotted NARS’ delicious finger-licking polishes lined up for display. I knew I had to see one of those nail treats but never had the time, or spare money then. I was particularly enthralled by a light gold shade named Versailles. I was told it had some resemblance to Chanel’s Gold Fiction. I stifled a laugh upon hearing that unnecessary information because I have a couple of chanel polishes, including Gold fiction which is by far, the best gold lacquer I own. Upon a glance, it’s obvious Versailles seems to have more refined fluid

      pigments. Though, I wasn’t utterly sure. I thought maybe because of the ill-lit store, the nail lacquer had a taupe-ish tinge but I soon found out it’s actually lighter.

      Versailles is a champaigne gold polish, which explains its pleasant light saturation. It’s actually yellow with a metallic sheen. It’s literally similar to the fake foile paint used to garnish furniture or cascading foliage such as in a baroque church. It glints of gold but not enough concentration to be convincing. I can indeed say it’s a favorable, easy color to wear as an alternative to Gold Fiction. What I love about it, are the fine pigments that make discernible gold color right away in a single swipe. It doesn’t have any garish flecks of gold shimmers, somewhat dusty in finish when allowed to dry thoroughly.

      Many nail art enthusiasts have a high regard for Gold fiction, some even wear it as a two-toned gold and black French tip manicure. I have been intrigued to try exactly the same thing topping Versailles with a very fluid opi black polish and boy it was a perfect match. I suggest though you grow your nails fully before doing this ...

      or else, the graphic two-toned effect will give your short square nails a squatter appearance. I also love Versailles on my pedicures, and I’m amazed it remained as good as new, unchipped for a full week until now.

      The polish has longer wear on hands as well. It lasted about 6 days before dents started showing up on the inner crease. It’s smooth, applies well and no streaking. It’s less creamy than Gold fiction so I doubt you’re gonna have problems in terms of application. The lacquer settles on its own which is wonderful; no sketchy, rough brush

      strokes. The lacquer comes in a square bottle with a really stubby matte black handle. The only thing I found faulty was the plastic handle which is squarely short and fat. I’d appreciate if it’s devised with a slender handle for easier, precise touch ups especially when it’s D.I.Y. manicure that requires a lot of multi-tasking. The handle just makes it difficult to give it a shake. Otherwise, it’s one of the best lacquers I’ve seen of late at 16 dollars and I’ll truly recommend it.
