Golden Rose Paris 85 & 88, Care + Strong 169

Good morning ladies! (And perhaps gentlemen?? Wouldn't that be nice?) As some of you suggested on my last post, those extra polish bottles are for a giveaway. I was lucky enough to happen on a full display and thought I would share with you! I haven't decided the details yet though, so keep watching! Today I want to show you what I was wearing when I wrote that post:

Golden Rose Paris #85 with Golden Rose Care+Strong #169

Golden Rose Paris #85 is a bright yellow creme. I was expecting it to be difficult to apply, but surprisingly this is only 3 coats. I had more difficulty with the brush (which is rather short) than I did with the polish! I topped it with one generous coat of Golden Rose #169 from the Care+Strong line.

Golden Rose Paris #88 with Golden Rose Care+Strong #169

I think Paris #88 has stolen my heart. I don't know what it is about it. It has VNL. But #88 is a milky translucent blue that reminds me of old glass. Does anyone remember that? It may have been called milk glass, I'm not sure. Anyhow, this is two coats, again topped with a generous coat of Care+Strong #169.

I wore these both simultaneously, one on my left hand and the other on my right. I actually do this quite often. Some quirk in me feels more settled when my nails aren't all the same color. And I don't know what it was, but I had more men than ever tell me they liked my nails while I wore this! Maybe its the yellow?

Have a good week everyone!


  1. Interesting how the topcoat looks with those two colors; I wouldn't have guessed it was the same one.

  2. so cute

  3. Pretty, pretty blue. You've done some great manis recently. I haven't been keeping track properly after my hols and getting back to work but you do have some great pix. I never wear the same colour on both hands. Too boring. I can't do Konad so it's the only way I know to have a bit of variety.

  4. I can't decide which is my favorite...although I'm leaning toward the the yellow...:)
    Here's a bit of sunshine for your day.


  5. I love that topcoat and the blue polish. They look so pretty together.

    And I tagged you with two blog awards. You can come pick them up at!
