Re-promote Alert: Dior Golden Era (No. 207)

I’m posting a few pictures of Dior’s Golden Era polish – it’s being promoted as part of the Golden Jungle Collection for fall, but it’s actually a re-promote of a sort.

This polish was available on Dior.com for a while around the time that Dior switched to the new wider brush (around the end of 2011).  I looked at it but passed, since a few swatches online showed it to be very sheer.  Of course I later became obsessed with it, since it quickly disappeared from the Dior website, and I couldn’t find it anywhere.  So when I popped up on an etailer recently for not too much more than retail, I felt excited and bought it.

Just a few short weeks later, information came out on Dior’s Golden Jungle Collection, and Golden Era was clearly included.  Argh!  I could have waited and bought it for less from a normal source like Nordstrom.  I swatched my bottle quickly but then didn’t get around to posting the pictures until now.

It’s not that great of a formula – it’s so sheer that it took four coats to get to the opacity in these pictures.  Because of all of the coats and general humidity problems I was having, I ended up with lots of icky bubbles.  The color of the polish is pretty, a sandy gold with little bits of coppery orange-red that make the color richer.  I like the color, and the way that it’s kind of neutral and toned down for a gold polish.  I think it’s nice on my skintone.  But I still feel just a little annoyed by it.
