Opallac Gold Mine – Gel Polish Swatch

Opallac Gold Mine – Gel Polish Swatch and brief review… This is, obviously, Gold Mine. It’s a glittery glitter gel polish by @opallacgelpolish with varying sized hexes. See the bottom of page for review details.

Excuse the radio silence – I’m really ill at the mo’ & still displaced (w sporadic internet), so you don’t get extra art (just the swatch) as last week more than made up for it 😉 Below you can see the look in shadow and light.

I used this shade in the recent Rainbow mani a few post back 🌈 Second pic with shadow so you can see how it looks in light and shade ✨ Search #opallac on Instagram for more looks.


Name: Gold Mine – available here or select Priceline (AU) stores
Brand: Opallac
Collection: A Little Spark
Colour (or family): Gold with Silver
Type & Finish: ‎Glitter / Glitter Topper
Size: 7.5ml / 0.25oz

Formula & Application notes:
Smooth and glossy if applied well, this is 3 thin coats. This is 3 layers built up with thin coats to show it worn alone, but you can use it as a topper over black, white, silver or even general colours and pastels. The trick is not to use overly thick coats as glitter can be quite dense and you don’t want polish to look uneven. You can do 2 coats if you are using it as a topper (to top coat over other colours). Gold with a touch of silver, she pops in the light and the sun nicely.

Also, “Look Mum! No tacos!” (obnoxious curling glitter) which, heck, ain’t nobody got time for dat!

The Verdict:
Quite dense with the glitter for a glitter gel polish. Which is great, as you do not want sparsely filled gel glitter. The more coats you add the chunkier it looks! So the pay off is quite good within 1-2 coats if used over a colour, and 2-3 coats when used alone. Obviously for swatching purposes I go the extra mile and did 3, but it looked alright in two.

If you like glitter and you like yellow gold, you will likely enjoy this polish. Just make sure you give it a really good shake before using as glitter has a tendency to settle to the bottom of everything.

I will have some tips on how to get the perfect glitter gel application when I get the time and strength to finish the Gel Polish At Home How To. It will be mega, and as mentioned I’m dealing with some hard-ass stuff at the mo, so it may be a month. But do keep an eye out if you are a gel polish lover or looking to start.
