Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure

Can someone tell me why this is spelled gilty and not guilty? I'm not getting the reference. Luckily, that's the only thing that bothers me about this polish! I think it's lovely...

This is a VERY nice shade of gold. It's very "real" looking. Instead of being an "artificial" yellow gold, it's more of a brassy gold. Like an old brass, not with a ton of luster or shininess, but an aged, antiqued brass while still holding true to it being gold. It's metallic as opposed to a shimmery or glitter gold. I don't know how it'd be on different skin tones, but I imagine it won't clash too badly with anyone.

The formula was lovely. It does show some brush strokes, but only when you look closely and concentrate. This was a very forgiving polish. It stayed where I put it despite my numerous brush strokes I used on each nail. No streaking, was opaque in 2 coats. Very nice to work with.


  1. Yes, the name is weird. I can only hope they meant Gild-y Pleasure or something weird like that as gild means to cover with a thin layer of gold. They mucked it all up! I've got this polish, too, but I can't say I've used it much.

  2. I looked up gilt, and one of the definitions is golden. So maybe that's what they were thinking. :)

  3. When you put a thin layer of gold leaf on something, like wood or metal, it is called gilt.
