Opallac 24 Carats – Gel Polish Swatch

Who doesn’t love glitter? And gold? And glitter and gold in a GEL POLISH?? I do, I do! Here’s the low-down on Opallac’s 24 Carat gold glitter gel polish…

And with bottle shot. Pretty close to the label colour on this one too.

You may’ve seen this one on Instagram recently, but here it is on le website. Better late than never!


Name: 24 Carats – available here or select Priceline (AU) stores
Brand: Opallac
Collection: A Little Spark Collection
Colour (or family): Pink
Type & Finish: ‎Glitter
Size: 7.5ml / 0.25oz

Formula & Application notes:
Smooth and glossy with the top coat, this was 2 coats. Could do with 3 if you paint thinly, just to eliminate any bald spots if you are not using it already over a base shade like white or black. You may want to wear it over a base coat or alone, in which case it will build to opacity in 2 medium or 3 thinner coats.

Given it’s a gel polish, with top coat the result is a smooth finish. Unlike some of the regular polish glitters that used to suck up 23 layers of top coat to look smooth. This is the bonus of gel. Plus I like the fast cure times that really benefit me when pressed for time. Having barely had time to breathe lately, I really don’t have time to wait for regular glitter polish this packed to dry, as fun as they are.

it applied easily, but just take care around the edges. Noob tip: push some of the pieces around before you cure to make a neat border/edge, so you don’t leave bald spots if you are using on it’s own. More layers will likely fix this, but be way of doing too many layers with glitter gels, as being glitter they layers are thicker and your nail tips may look pretty chunky if you do too many.

The Verdict:
I like gold and glitter and gel polish. So of course this one was fun to wear and definitely got noticed. I liked it more than I thought I would as it has varied sized glitter pieces in it. It blinged in the sunlight.

It can be worn alone as it is easily buildable. Basically because it was packed with glitter – so I really didn’t need to go on a ‘fishing expedition’ to get it out of the bottle. A win in my books!

It’s an orangey-yellow gold, rather than an antique or chrome gold, but pairs well with black, white and red. Nail art to come!

Dupes/Similar Lacquers:
It’s like a orange-yellower version of Smith & Cult Shattered Souls or at a stretch a denser & yellower version of Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow. But gel.
