Golden Rose USA review

I have been on a hunt to find e-tailers here in the US that carry overseas brands.
SCORE! I tracked down Golden Rose USA who carries Golden Rose a Turkish Nail polish brand.
I roamed around the site (drooling) looking for the down side. Good prices, Free shipping on orders over $20.00, huge selection. OK so I did a search via google for complaints or bad reviews etc....Not a thing.
So I decided to order. Hello people they have holographics for between $2.19 to $3.49 and 31 different colors. Also they have Several lines of Golden Rose polishes. So pretty much anything you want. They also have killer prices on some very nice makeup brush sets, and false eyelashes, bath goodies and so on.
I spent about 2 1/2 hours carefully picking colors that I wanted to try
and I pm'd Jess and made her go look and picked a few also. So eventually I ordered.
About 15 minutes later I got an email from Mary saying that one of the colors I ordered was out of stock and she suggested a color close to the oos color. How awesome is that! So after bugging poor Mary to death with questions (she answered each one quickly and without ever telling me to "get a life crazy nail polish lady") Seriously Mary is Fabulous! She also sent a few of their most popular colors and nail wheels of the paris line so I could see the colors myself! (Told you Mary is awesome)
So this was Wed. afternoon. Yeah my order was shipped by 5:30pm
Wed and guess what I got today!!!! YAY! So super fast shipping customer service that absolutely rocks!
I suppose you wanna see my goodies...
These three are mini's that I got. (Much bigger than OPI mini's, closer to Orly's mini's)
119 is a Black holo, not gray or charcoal but Black with sparse holo like the DS holo's.
52 is actually brighter green almost neon, 36 is a metallic light blue.
(I did not resize the pics so when you click you can see the true color and finish)
How gorgeous are the Eiffel tower shaped bottles! <3
The first 3 are from the Golden Rose Paris holographic series.
The rest are from the regular Golden Rose series.

I also ordered 102 which died in transit and Mary is sending a replacement. :)


These three are the samples Mary chose from their most popular of the Paris collection.

The sun was hiding but if you enlarge you can see the holo. This one leans red. I swatched a coat over a red creme and it looks like a true red holo, but is gorgeous on it's own.

A gorgeous berry/purple holo

A taupe holo, so sparkly

Perfect black holo! (I love you 119)

Color wheel 1

Color wheel 2 (just the top row)
My haul including Jess' polishes was under $40 I think that is a bargin.

I am thrilled with all of the color's I chose and will be ordering more, very soon. (Is tonight too soon?)
The only drawback I found with Golden Rose USA is the site swatches are very small and difficult to get a clear idea of the color or finish. Which is why I posted the swatch wheels.
I will also post my swatches.
I highly recommend Golden Rose USA and I think the quality and colors are exceptional.
What are you waiting for? Go...go look...now!

  2. I'm actually amazed with that service too! Very helpful and somewhat cheap! The colours are really hypnothizing yet soft. That is usually a hard to get thing for a nail polish! Lovely choice you made! Can't wait to see some pictures of your nails painted with those! ***

  6. Yay! I am from Turkey (already told you on MUA) and I am so happy that Turkish brands are also getting attention. You should also check Flormar, it is the OPI of Turkey.

    Oooh these look great! Definitely bookmarking. Do you know of any places that carry other foreign polishes, like P2? I see a lot of their colors I think are so pretty, and don't know where to find them.
