I decided that it would look best paired with a nude or pale polish underneath. I went for my trusty Essie Fiji, a lovely pale, almost white pink shade. I applied two coats of Fiji then top it with two thin coats of the Knitted Gold polish. I find with glitter it is best to apply a few thin coats, however with this one you could get away with one coat.
The shade Knitted Gold is so unique which is why I think it has been so popular. It has a mix of pink and gold chunky glitter but as well as that a metallic duo-chrome fine gold glitter which means it looks different in certain lightening. There should be a warning that when wearing this you won't be able to stop looking at your nails! The wear time is good, i've been wearing it for a few days and there are no chips. A good top coat applied on top gives a glossy finish and adds to the already good wear time.

Have you tried this polish? I definitely think it is a great drugstore find worth checking out.
