NOTD: Gold Coin by Revlon

 It's the beginning of Mardi Gras here in Mobile, which helps to lend some festivity to an otherwise gray and chilly time of the year.  The colors of Mardi Gras are purple (justice), gold (power), and green (faith), and today I have a power gold polish that fits in perfectly!
Gold Coin by Revlon is a cooler toned gold with a shiny metallic or foil finish.  Coins are items that frequently get thrown from Mardi Gras floats, so even the name is perfect.  Granted, they are plastic coins commemorating the events, but still.  Two coats were plenty and I found the formula to be easy to work with.  I used Seche Vite for both the base and top coats.
Gold Coin really does glow and has been a great pick me up during this stretch of gray, damp, and cold weather we've been having.  It inspired me to attempt a matching gold eye look, which I think turned out pretty nicely!
Products used for this look (links lead to past reviews):
  • Tarte Waterproof Cream Shadow in Shimmering Golden Beige as base from lash line to crease
  • Bare Escentuals Extravagance from The Star Treatment READY 8.0 palette from lash line to crease
  • Lancome's Delicate Lace on brow and inner eye
  • Carte Blanche from The Star Treatment on inner eye and lower inner lash line
  • BFTE's If I Only Had a Brain in crease  and Buttercup below crease to tone done the shimmer
  • Tarte SmoulderEYES pencil in Gold on upper and lower lashline
Dislaimer:  I purchased this.

  1. I love that gold! It's the perfect amount of shimmer.

  2. I have Gold Coin too and I love it. It is a great stamping polish too. I love your matching eye makeup, so subtle and pretty.

    1. I haven't been ambitious enough to attempt stamping, although I love the looks that can be created. I'm pretty sure I don't have enough patience!

  3. I really love that gold. I have a similar one from Urban Decay - I love to wear it on holidays :)

    1. I have that UD polish - I completely forgot about it! Yes, very similar.
