Guess that Gold revealled

Thank you everyone for your wishes for my birthday yesterday, both on here, facebook and by email!  I felt very loved!  

Following my gold mani yesterday, it seems like a perfect time to reveal all the gold polishes from my guess that gold giveaway.  There weren't a huge number of entries, but the girls who did respond sure did put a lot of effort in.  Unfortunately there were just a few too many entries for me to be able to post something to everyone that tried.  

Combining all the entries, every single polish brand was correctly identified against the right polish, and only one polish name was not guessed by anyone.  I'm not at all surprised that no one guessed the polish name for #18, which was my vintage polish from the 1990's. 

I've detailed next to each polish name, the percentage of people that guessed it correctly.  So lets have a look again.

#1 China Glaze - Passion - 20% correct on brand. 20% correct on polish name.

#2 a England - Holy Grail new - 67% correct on brand. 67% correct on polish name.

#3 OPI - Golden Eye - 67% correct on brand. 67% correct on polish name.

#4 Chanel - Peridot- 60% correct on brand. 60% correct on polish name.

#5 aEngland - And the Moonbeams - 47% correct on brand. 47% correct on polish name.

#6 Urban Decay - Twisted - 53% correct on brand. 53% correct on polish name.

#7 Barry M - Gold - 13% correct on brand. 13% correct on polish name.

#8 Pretty Serious - Mummy Mush - 60% correct on brand. 60% correct on polish name.

#9 Priti NYC - Chrysanthos - 27% correct on brand. 27% correct on polish name.

#10 Zoya - Kerry - 47% correct on brand. 33% correct on polish name.

#11 Emily de Molly - High Distinction - 80% correct on brand. 80% correct on polish name.

#12 Essie - Good as Gold - 27% correct on brand. 27% correct on polish name.

#13 Ulta 3 - Precious - 53% correct on brand. 53% correct on polish name.

#14 Milani - 3D - 60% correct on brand. 60% correct on polish name.

#15 TBN - Gilt - 20% correct on brand. 20% correct on polish name.

#16 Picture Polish - Majesty - 47% correct on brand. 47% correct on polish name.

#17 Cover Girl - Bronze Beauty - 20% correct on brand. 7% correct on polish name.

#18 Revlon - Solar - 7% correct on brand. 0% correct on polish name.

#19 Jessica - Palladium - 53% correct on brand. 53% correct on polish name.

#22 Jade - Mystic Gold - 73% correct on brand. 73% correct on polish name.

#23 Glitter Gal  - Yellow Gold sparkle - 73% correct on brand. 73% correct on polish name.

#29 Zoya - Ziv - 60% correct on brand. 60% correct on polish name.

#30 Enchanted Polish - Austin Powers - 80% correct on brand. 80% correct on polish name.


After receiving the entires, I have decided to split the prize pool slightly differently than originally planned.  There were three ladies that scored points that were a little jump above everyone else, so my congratulations go to:
  1. Rebecca = 47/60
  2. Maria = 46/60
  3. Kate = 44/60
What was also really interesting to look at, was how many correct polishes were identified overall, but placed against the wrong polish.  For example, one entrant got 14/60 correct, but when you look at all the polishes and names correctly identified, but in the wrong place, she actually guessed 34. The most that were correctly identified overall, including ones in the wrong place was 52.


The remaining entrants scored between 2-38/60. Give the amazing efforts that these entrants went to, I decided to award three prizes, randomly selected from the remaining entrants, so my congratulations to:
  • Yuri
  • Ruth
  • Lauren
I have emailed all the above prize winners with details of their prizes.

Thank you to everyone who participated.  I'll try make the next one a little easier with less polishes in the colour group.

  2. Thank you for this amazing challenge and your big effort in swatching 30 gold polishes. And congratulations to all winners! :D

    I'm so excited to receive email from Cathy that I was one of the lucky random winners! XD
    I haven't got any of the polishes in the prize pool, so whatever will be sent to me I will cherish dearly.

    Again, great job Cathy and I'm looking forward to the next challenge!

  3. Congratulations to all the participants and of course the winners.
    I didn't even try to identify these polishes - much as I love them all. It was way out of my league even though I loved the concept of the game. I'm totally amazed at how well you all know your polishes even in a competition that was this hard.

  6. Congrats to the winners! I really wanted to participate but I knew it was going to be a LOT of work (looking at the answers now, I don't know if I would have got any of them right), and it was just the wrong time for me. I would love to try it next time!
