Gold Coast is one of the more recent solid color additions to the Color Street collection. It was released at the same time as the new sports collection, as well as the glitter Home Sleet Home, Fire Island Flame, and Yemen Lemons. I am so excited to show you Color Street Gold Coast swatches, and share my thoughts on this new addition to the Color Street lineup.
Color Street Gold Coast
Ever wanted chrome nails? This felt like the closest thing to chrome – but in a gold color – that Color Street has to offer us so far. It’s got glam and sophistication. The best part is that it has the gold shimmer without the brush strokes. This makes every shimmer-lover rejoice!
Fair warning – and you’ll see this in the photos below: I did NOT have smooth application because I had removed my previous color from my swatching spree, and there was some polish residue left behind. You can tell on the middle finger exactly where the residue was…so make sure that you start with clean, bare nails, lest you have the same tragic lumpies and bumpies I had.

This is what you’ve been waiting for … photos of Color Street Gold Coast on my nails! Get ready to get WOWed. I mean, seriously, look at Gold Coast in the sunlight. See what I mean about there being no brustrokes in the shimmer?
Color Street Gold Coast is still pretty in the shade: not as vibrant and shimmery as in the sunlight.
Full disclosure: I didn’t love the matte look on Color Street Gold Coast. However, I don’t like matte top coats in general, so that was to be expected. I’ll let you make your own judgment call on what you think. If you love a good matte finish for your nails, here’s a link to the one I purchased.
Color Street Gold Coast Review
Gold Coast was probably the best and easiest solid Color Street color to put on. It was breathtaking and glorious, and I can’t wait to wear it again. In my experience though, solids with a shimmer finish are easier to apply than any other color.
If you’ve ever had trouble putting on Color Street solids, let me give you some pro tips here.
- You don’t NEED special tools to apply solids, but a rubber tipped cuticle pusher will make it exponentially easier. You can use the rubber end to gently smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the nail polish. It is a gamechanger for applying Color Street solids!
- I recommend using two layers. Color Street solid nail polish strips are thinner than any of the other strips. Because of that, I find that any ridges or imperfections in your nail will show (I use THIS ridge filler to help my nails be healthy and beautiful – I got my first bottle in a FabFitFun add-on sale, and will be using it for all my manicures). A second layer will just help the polish feel a little bit sturdier.
- Don’t be afraid to start over. Since there are so many strips in one package, you have enough strips to take off the wayward strip and start over. If there are problems in the application, adding a second coat won’t fix them, nor will adding a matte top coat (most of the time, adding another coat makes the problems look worse).
