China Glaze’s Gilded Treasures

This color is pretty, and the scattered sparkle (as opposed to all-over sparkle or even a regular shimmer) is a nice change. I do wish that the color was a bit less sheer, though. Even with three coats there was a bit of VNL. The polish has good spreadability, doesn't show brushstrokes, dries well, lasts quite nicely…but I don't love the semisheer bit. (Maybe I'll use two coats of this over a single coat of Uli?)
