I haven't bought any 17 polishes before, apart from the magnetic ones I bought recently that were my first. I bought this one because I love gold nail varnish, and this was a different sort of gold that I hadn't seen elsewhere before.
I really like the colour. It's a nice rich, warm browny gold, and has a lovely shine to it.
However, I hated the application. The brush strokes were really visible, especially on the first coat. The second coat helped, but the polish was also quite thick and gloopy, and was quite uneven. Seche Vite topcoat did help, but it's still not particularly even on the nails. It also didn't wear particularly well. I put this on last night, and wore it to work today, before I took these photos, and it is wearing on the tips already.
So, overall - I was a bit disappointed. Their magnetic polishes were really good, but this one not so much. Having said that, it's dead cheap, so I suppose it's to be expected.
I wore it with my Fantasy Fire ring though, and I thought they went really well together. The ring reminds me of Coca Cola! It's mostly a firey goldy brown colour, but turns bluey-green in certain lights, especially in natural light.
