Nude Gold Polish Comparison Plus Cadillacquer Seek the Fire

I have an amazing polish to show you today! But before that, I want to show you a comparison of a few nude gold nail polishes. My post this past Wednesday featured I Love Nail Polish Iconic, and I mentioned that it was really similar to a few other polishes of mine. So I would like to show you a quick comparison!

Bottle shot!

See? They look super similar in the bottle! From left to right, there’s ILNP Iconic, Color Club Cherubic, and Colors by Llarowe Blonde Ambition.

And on my nails:

As you can tell, on the nails they are similar but not dupes! On my index finger and pinky – Color Club Cherubic, middle finger – ILNP Iconic, and ring finger – Colors by Llarowe Blonde Ambition.

Color wise, Iconic is more yellow gold while the other 2 are more nude gold. And Blonde Ambition is a bit darker than Cherubic, with Cherubic having some silver undertones. From a formula perspective, Iconic was the thinnest requiring 3-4 coats for opacity. The other two were comparable in formula, with just 2 coats to reach opacity.

Anyways, no dupes here! However, they are similar so if you aren’t a crazy polishaholic like me, you probably don’t need them all 🙂 I think my favorite is Blonde Ambition since it looks best with my skin tone, but they’re all beautiful!

OK… and finally, I want to show you my new Cadillacquer polish! It’s my first polish of this brand, and I love it so much! It’s goooorgeous!

So so pretty! That blue is so great on its own, and then there are those stunning little red microglitters throughout. Yummy! I’m so happy I was able to pick this one up 🙂

What do you think? Do you own any of those gold holos? Any others that you can think of as possible dupes? And jeez, how amazing is Seek the Fire? Do you have any Cadillacquers?

Holo Humpday: ILNP Iconic

For today’s Holo Humpday, I present to you *dun dun dun duuuuun* (ps – that was a drum roll)… I Love Nail Polish’s Iconic! Barbra put out such a gorgeous Fall collection, including this ridiculous holographic nail polish.

Whomp… that’s my jaw dropping at this beauty!

Iconic is a stunning nude gold holographic nail polish with hints of silver. I thought I had absolutely nothing in my collection that could compare, so obviously I needed this pretty to be mine right?

Such a strong holo!

As I mentioned in my post Monday that included ILNP Champagne Blush, the formula seemed a bit thinner than other ILNP holos I have. The first coat was very sheer, but it built up nicely. My pics show 3 coats with no top coat.

Here’s a close-up:

Boom baby! Emperor’s New Groove anyone?

Now, I also own Colors by Llarowe Blonde Ambition and Color Club Cherubic which are actually quite similar. I really need to do a comparison picture.

Oh and guess what I just realized?! Today is officially my 1 year anniversary of this little blog! So yay – it’s my blogiversary 🙂 I think things have vastly improved, don’t you?

What do you think? Can you ever own too many nude or gold holos? Would you like to see a comparison shot of the CbL, Color Club, and ILNP?
