Golden Green is one of five polishes in the set, in fact when you buy the set you get a free 3-in-1 base/top coat that dires very shiny (but I’ve only used it once). Its probably the least duo coloured of the set, but having worn lots of blues, black and purple in recent weeks I fancied a change.
One thing I have noted about Models Own is the smell. Its pretty strong and not the most pleasant of smells. Once the bottle is closed it goes away quickly, but if you are sensitive to smells or change your polish a lot, then its worth doing it in a well ventilated area.
Golden Green is, as implied in the name, a golden green metallic. There is a very slight shimmer in the formula that you can just about see on the nail. Formula was good, not too thin not too thick. It took two coats to build up the colour so it was hard to see if it was going to be opaque or not. I did 4 thin coats for these images and tops with Sally Hansen Mega Shine (my go-to top coat). So far, wear is good and I’ve read on a couple of blogs that its a bit of a nail stainer, so if it is, I will update this post when I remove the polish.
In terms of dupes, I have Chanel Peridot, so I did a bottle comparison. The Chanel has more of the duochrome in the bottle, but they both have the same olive green base. I snapped some images of the bottles so see what you think.
