Outlet shopping, as you know, can be hit or miss. Imagine my surprise when I saw this beautiful little box of awesome all by its lonesome in the Juicy Couture outlet! Simply put, I struck gold ;)
Juicy Couture partnered with Deborah Lippman and Troy Surratt to create this set that was sold last holiday season. The wondrous gold polish is called Here Comes the Queen, which is SUCH a Juicy Couture and Deborah Lippmann name. The champagne bottle is actually a lip gloss called 24 Karat Couture.

On the way home on the bus, I opened the box and HELLO the top of the polish bottle is bedazzled!
Here Comes the Queen is a stunning Deborah Lippmann creation of gold flakies and tiny, glowing gold glitter. While there are many tones of gold, Here Comes the Queen is as close to gold-bar colored gold as it gets :) Coverage is perfect and application is a breeze. Compared to swatches I've seen of Essie As Gold As It Gets, Here Comes the Queen is more dense and the flakies are larger.
Here is one coat of Here Comes the Queen over Wet and Wild Black Crème (the black) and China Glaze Stella (the purple).
Did you watch Gold Rush on TLC last winter? I was totally addicted. Here Comes the Queen reminded me of how the gold looked in the bottom of the pans :) Using "panning for gold" as the inspiration, here is Here Comes the Queen over China Glaze Concrete Catwalk. Glitter gradient instructions here :)
Just for fun, I tried Here Comes the Queen over Butter LONDON Black Knight to test the consistency (you can see I went a little heavy on my ring finger) but the combo was so incredible I had to share it with you!
If you're totally in love with Here Comes the Queen, it is LE however there are a few listings on eBay that are well under the original $48 price tag.
