Essie As Gold As It Gets Swatches

Hey girls! Today I have a swatch of the other Essie Luxeffects polish I got, As Gold As It Gets. It's a gold flakie. No duochrome like Shine of the Times, but it's still gorgeous. I swatched it over OPI's Road House Blues, a new to me color, and it's not what I hoped. I wanted a true gold over dark blue look but this blue is too dark, so it looks like a charcoal or something. I still like the combination, but I'm going to try it over a lighter blue later on. Here you have it:

Isn't she purty? Here's a different angle:

My cuticles are so messy! Ugh I'm gonna have to clean up again... my OCD won't let me leave this alone. Nothing shows you how messy your clean up was like close ups. Speaking of which...

Oh yeah, I learned how to take decent macro shots on my crappy camera. BOO YA! I honestly never thought I'd be able to but I proved myself wrong. Sorry for the horrible clean up, I swear they look fine in person. Anyways, I like this flakie, a lot. It has irregular sized flakes and it really gives your nails more depth. I love it. Again, I can't wait to layer it over everything. :D

What do you guys think? Do you like it? What should I layer it over? Thanks for reading! :D
