Nail Polish Love: Dior's Golden Nugget

Dior 708 Le Vernis Nail Colour

While browsing through Dior's Gold Rush Summer Collection, many things caught my eye, but, one specific, Gold Nugget 708 Nail Polish.  I automatically reached for it to swatch, and it was just gorgeous.  Not like any bronze color I own.  It's really hard to describe this color because it's so unique.  It's a bronze nail color, with tons of gold shimmer which makes this an olive green bronze in some lights.  So, I rushed home and pulled out all my gold and bronze polishes, and I couldn't find one to compare.  Check out the swatch below.

Dior's Gold Nugget Nail Polish Photo Swatch

Dior released two limited edition nail colors in their Gold Rush summer collection. 

Coppery Ginger 668, $19.00, described as a light metallic copper shade.  The texture reminded me of Chanel's Antilope nail polish, but was more copper toned.  I really didn't care for this one because it wasn't as unique as Gold Nugget. 

Gold Nugget 708, $19.00, described as a bronze golden nail polish with gold shimmer which gives the appearence of olive green bronze in some lights.  This color is semi-sheer, but you certainly can get good coverage with two coats, three coats you are golden!

Dior's nail polish formula's are excellent.  Long lasting, and no chipping and I honestly have to say it's much better than Chanel.  I think this color will appeal more to the warmer tones. My theory,  anyone can rock it!

Thanks! Definitely going to check it out today! Someone mentioned that it may look close to Opi Charmed by a Snake?

Steph said on Apr 23rd, 2008 3:56 am
They are much different. I have both polishes, I will post comparisons up today. Charmed by a snake is more of a light sand bronze, and Gold Nugget is more of a Deep Bronze/Gold.

I am in love with this color but i can't find it anywhere. Where do I get it?

Steph said on Jan 25th, 2009 10:41 am
I agree, it's gorgeous! This was a limited edition shade back in summer 07. Before searching on ebay check with your local Dior counters. Sometimes they have left over stock from the previous summer. :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
