Mariah Carey Pure 18K White Gold and Silver Top Coat

Happy Monday readers - it's almost the end of the day here which given it's a Monday is never a bad thing!

Today I want to show you the last bit of the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 collection, I got lucky again and was able to pick up the new Mariah white gold topcoat that is coming out as a special, it was my missing piece of the puzzle.

On first inspection this appears very similar to the OPI The Man With A Golden Gun from 2012, except it has white gold flakes rather than yellow gold. 

The packaging for this is gorgeous, look at that bottle - how can you resist? Especially if you have a soft spot in your heart for OPI.  This polish also comes in it's own box display box.

For this swatch I used 2 coats of I saw.....U Saw......We Saw...... Warsaw from the OPI Euro collection, one coat of the Mariah white gold topcoat and one coat of topcoat.

I really like this white gold topcoat, the coverage is good, I think a little better the The Man With A Golden Gun. It still has a slight tinge of yellow to the gold and I was expecting it to be completely silver, but looking back it's nothing like the yellow gold top coat, I prefer it and I think it's pretty.

I used this over a dark colour so it would stand out but I think it would probably look good over anything! Definitely a worthwhile purchase for my collection.

I got mine from Lena White, the UK distributor where I have a trade card so I don't know exactly what I paid for it but I remember The Man With A Golden Gun was about £30 last year I would guess it might be around that - ouch! 

Will this be making it into your collection?
