Nail Polish Love: Dior's Golden Nugget
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 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!
Pictured to the right is a comparison of OPI Charmed by a Snake and Dior's Golden Nugget. As you can see, there's a noticeable difference between the two colors. OPI Charmed by s Snake is lighter sand bronze color and Dior's Gold Nugget is a Dark Bronze/Gold color, which gold shimmer creates more of a olive green bronze look.

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 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. :)
