Golden Rose Scale Effect Collection : Flaaaaaakies!!!

I wasn't familiar with the Golden Rose Scale Effects until a few weeks ago and since I just got them in the mail, I thought I had to try and take proper pictures because I couldn't find any myself when I needed them.
There are 15 nail polishes in the collection, they don't have names, just numbers from 01 to 15. They're all very sheer, even those who look pretty dark. They're also quite dense and dry very fast but a bit dull so I swatched them all with topcoat, over black and white.
























Overall :
Depending on what you're planning to layer them on, mainly dark colors, there are a few you might want to pass because they're very similar.
Otherwise, I really like them, especially over pastels or medium toned nail polishes and I can't wait to try them over greens, blues, purples, pinks,...


Availabiliy : I haven't seen them in the Golden Rose online store... These were sent to me from Holland and I believe they're easily available in Eastern Europe.


*Edit*

Since I had a lot of questions, I  decided to add a quick recap to help you decide which ones to pass.


01 & 13 : same flakies
01 clear base
13 very subtle sheer blue base.

02 & 15 : same flakies
02 clear base
15 orange base, invisible on the nail.

04 & 06 : same flakies,
04 clear base
06 very subtle sheer blue base.

11 & 14 : same flakies,
11 very subtle sheer pink base
14 almost invisible yellowish base.

03, 05, 07, 08, 09, 10 & 12 : same flakies,
03, 05 & 08 : clear base
07 very subtle sheer pink base
09 slight blue based pink base
10 blue based pink base
12 sheer warm pink base



Overall :
The only ones with significant base colors are 09, 10, 12 and 13.
Otherwise, you can get either one of the same flakies group.

I hope this helps!

  2. I guess I like them better on a pale base :) like pale pink, pale aqua and so on. I have never seen anything like this before, it's really cool!

  16. They sell them here in Holland for around 3 euros.. So it's very cheap! Don't own any of them, but might do that some time. :)

  17. I splurged and got all these too. Now I have a gorgeous flakie army! Thanks for your swatches. I actually prefer the flakies on colors other than black and white, but it's so hard to capture how pretty they are in photos.

  22. I think a really important thing to note is they will probably look different on different colored polishes. I'm sure a lot of them are similar, but my guess is on a different base, some will look way different. Also, as with any flakies, they always seem to transition from red/orange to green, it just depends on the angle. At least that's what I've noticed in blogs.

    This is amazing, I actually have never seen anything like that and It looks so much better on dark polish.

  29. For people in europe you can buy them online at www.enchantra.eu. It's a dutch site so if you don't understand or can't translate dutch, they speak very well english so i think you can send them emails. I used the google translator function.
