Perfect for a fun metallic accent wall
I used this paint for a fun accent wall in my home. Another paint store I went to said that the only way I could achieve a gold metallic finish was to use a two step process - paint a flat yellow/gold color, and then add a (really expensive) gold glaze on top. I am too lazy for that, plus (as you can see in the picture), the detail I wanted to achieve wasn't going to be as conducive to a multi-layered approach. I found this paint, and it totally did the trick! I did use two coats on top of the white background paint, but didn't use any sort of special sponge or roller. Just used my regular old wall rollers and waited a short period of time for the first coat to dry before the second. Everyone who comes in my home raves about how good it looks. The only drawback is that the metallic finish shows every little imperfection in the wall - but that will be true of any metallic finish. I am just glad it is actually metallic and not flat! Now, if only I could say such good things about the tape I used for the stripes.....

    Exceeded expectations
    Beautiful gold color and sheen!! Two coats and my walls sparkled. Looks very rich - not a cheap looking finish. Definitely follow the directions.

      Metallic paint
      As stated in other posts it is impossible to roll it and not have streaks. The coverage is terrible . It is a thin paint. Buy twice what you think you need and spray 2 or 3 coats on before using the goofy sea foam roller. Looks nice if you got the time and patience to deal with it, which I don't .

          Not the color I wanted for my room but still a good color
          I wanted to paint the moldings in my bedroom gold. I saw this color online and decided to take my chances without getting a gold sample from the store (stupid mistake). The color itself is not bad, just not what I was looking for. It's a bright gold, I was looking for something a little darker. But for $50 something in my house will eventually be gold! Just not the moldings in my bedroom :-(

            Although this paint is a bit pricey, it is a unique and beautiful paint and I look forward to going into my powder room.

            Ralph Lauren gold metallic paint
            Really liked this product, covered with two coats on a textured wall with no issue. Would use again, good value compared to other metallic paints.

              Okay, so...
              copied the accent wall idea from the other person on here who posted a photo and, although it doesn't look as good as his due to my tape job, i am in love with it!! was supposed to have a professional painter do it, but i couldn't wait. scheduled my painter to finish the rest of the room with a rag roll over my previous (light) paint, which i could tell he wasn't happy with (personally, as he had never done that before) so i worked on that, and it was quite a lovely surprise... reminds me of an italian bathroom in an upscale restaurant paint-job wise. had the painter finish the rest of the walls, just going over what was rag rolled previously but he just painted with a regular roller brush... 3/4 looks fab and the last 1/4 looks streaky, but i think he got lazy with all of the stirring that IS DEFINITELY REQUIRED if you want an even look. overall, love, love, love this paint -- as i really had a hard time finding something that truly looked gold and shiny gold nonetheless -- and think it is a great value for the money. had seen painted gold accent jars to use for paint on the walls, a quarter of the size for nearly the same amount, at my local paint store. but, yes, this paint will show your flaws in your walls, as it did in my 100-plus-year-old condo. still am sooo happy with this color and unique look overall!! just remember: stir, stir, stir and work quickly!!
