China Glaze’s Optimistic

Pretty champagne-gold metallic, but unfortunately the spreadability isn't good. It shows brushstrokes fairly well. It's also a bit on the thin side, so I don't know if it will work well for nail stamping. I do like the shade, which is similar but not exactly like later China Glaze colors Passion and Midnight Kiss (both of which work quite well as nail stamping colors. So there's some irony.)
