NOTD: Tip Toe (Old Navy) Gold Rush

Above & Below: Shown outdoors in full sun with no flash. Depending on the angle, it looks brown, gold, or an olive gold.

Yesterday I showed you bottle pictures of the Tip Toe brand polishes I picked up at Old Navy, and today I have Gold Rush, which was my favorite in the bottle form. I'm not disappointed now that I have it on, and it makes me excited to try out the others. I used 2 coats and touched up a few bald patches after the first coat. It dried quickly and I was happy and surprised to see how well it covered the nail. This is an interesting looks like an olive gold shade in the bottle, and you can actually see some purple around the edges of the bottle. During application , I noticed that it has a charcoal base, and I also noticed that it not only has very small gold glitter, but also additional glitter shades. I applied Essie's Matte About You, which gives it a deep burnished gold look with a black base. These retail for $3.50 and can be found in a canister at the check-out lane in Old Navy.


  1. That's a cool color! Looks fantastic on you. I like all the shades and shimmers in there. Nice polish.

  2. Wow that is a nice color! Looks like I might need a trip to Old Navy!

  3. This is really beautiful!
    Cheap US brands builds severe lemmings in my part of the world. It is much easier for me to find an OPI, Zoya or Nubar, or (almost) every other salon brand, than it is finding these cheap and interesting gems!

  4. That is a gorgeous shade, it look just slightly greyed. Very pretty!

  5. That shade is beautiful shiny and matte!

  6. Wow that looks even better than I had expected from the bottle pics. Absolutely gorgeous! I love brown shades

  7. Gold shimmer....just like you love, isn't it ? :-) This is a cool color and it fits you very well.

  8. This is gorgeous! Beautiful on you! I'm definitely going to have to go get some of these... and soon! Just gorgeous! :)

  9. I love the shimmer in this luscious color.

  10. I love this. Guess I'll have to make a trip to the Nave! Part of why I asked if this was new was because I worked at Old Navy for five years. When I started, we had some nail polish and it was terrible. I left the Nave two years ago so I'm not completely up on what they offer.

  11. What a pretty np color, reminds me of a lighter ChG Wagon Trail.

  12. Lucy~glad you like it too! I thought it was so pretty in the bottle and it is even better on the nail.

    Nail Fanatic~I'm really liking these polishes! I agree, a trip to Old Navy is in order :)

    PolishPig~I can imagine these would be hard to find for you! I'm always pleased when a cheap polish performs so well.

    Evil Angel~it does have quite a bit color-wise going on. I love polishes with multiple personalities!

    gildedangel~I totally agree with you and can't decide which way I like it best.

    Anna~I like how it changes color in different lighting. Totally worth my $3.50!

    Denny~happy you like it also!

    Kalmo~you're right, it is similar to that :)

  13. This is gorgeous, a very unusual colour. Not a chance of seeing these over here in the UK so thanks for sharing
