All the Rage

Orly Rage. I've been trying to find a bottle for months after seeing swatches and being convinced I needed it in my life. I tried to find a dupe or something very similar, from Chi Chi Go Go Girl to Ulta3 Envy, but they've all ended up too brown and/or frosty. I couldn't seem to find a rose gold foil polish, no matter where I looked. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across the teeniest bottle of Rage at some random chemist one Friday afternoon. It was pure coincidence that I even stepped foot into that store. They didn't sell a full bottle, but 5.3mL was better than nothing, so I quickly took it to the counter.






The colour is noticeably more of a rose gold than the usual taupe/old gold/bronze foil polishes out there, but to be perfectly honest, the rose gold quality wasn't as pronounced as I'd hoped. Yes, there is definitely a bit of a pink tone, but overall the polish to my eyes is still very bronzy. Having said that, when I compared Rage side-by-side to Go Go Girl and Envy, the two didn't even come close. Next to RageEnvy appeared more like a pale gold and Go Go Girl a frosty pewter. I like that the finish of Rage isn't overwhelmingly silvery like so many foil polishes. I'm now considering experimenting with mixing my own nail polish, perhaps a light pink metallic or a copper with Envy. If I can't find the perfect rose gold, I may just have to make it.

  5. This looks so lovely! Now that I think about it, I really haven't got any polishes like this in my (somewhat small) collection, but then again rarely do I get the opportunity to wear polishes anyway. Never mind, I loved drooling over this pretty polish!

  6. yes, this has the tinge of rose. and I thought it is similar to a China Glaze in Passion that I have. But I went to search my blog and see that China Glaze Passion is straight gold instead.

  17. Lovely polish - but it would have been so much nicer if it did turn out to be a rose gold! I'm infatuated with rose gold accessories these days.

  18. Beautiful and elegant colour. And I also couldn't stop noticing what lovely fingers you have too! You must have done a great job keeping your cuticles at bay and looking after them. Mine are just a total disaster from excessive washing, which I really need to learn to reduce...

  19. gorgeous colour! this one is nice because sometimes some metallic/ glittery / shimmery nail polishes could be too 'in your face'. But this one stays subtle and wearable.

  22. This color reminds me of Chanel Delight. This may have a bit more rose gold tone, I am really into color similar to this lately:)

  24. Happy you managed to find a bottle. It's lovely. Perhaps you could use a pink coat of polish underneath to bring out the rose? Regardless, let us know how you go on the mixing nail polish front!

  32. Sooo pretty! I love the slight rose tinge, but you are right... the rose tinge isn't that noticeable. Still, it looks lovely on you and I'm glad you found a bottle. :-)
