Today I have a post about GOSH Holographic! I’ve been meaning to post a swatch of this gorgeous polish for ages as I found it some time ago. But this was actually the first time I’ve worn it properly as a full manicure. Can’t believe I’ve waited this long!
GOSH released this holographic polish and then discontinued it not too long after. I don’t think I was into nail polish when this was released so I completely missed out! I’ve been looking for it for over a year without much hope of ever finding it. Every time I would walk past the GOSH display I’d have a quick browse to see if I could spot it. Then a few months ago I was looking through the discount clearance baskets at my local drugstore, I couldn’t find anything interesting but then I spotted this dirty looking GOSH bottle, almost threw it right back before looking at the name labelled on the top which read “549 Holographic”. OH MY GOD! I was completely dumb struck! The girl behind the cash register saw my face and actually went “are you okay?”. Try explaining the significance of this polish to a muggle.
I was lucky enough to find two bottles (can you believe my luck?). I sold the spare bottle to a lovely woman from Alaska and kept the other. I also found a bottle of GOSH Fix Base Plus, the base coat designed specifically to layer beneath GOSH Holographic. It makes a huge difference using the base coat, I only had some tip wear after about three days which is pretty great for a holo.
I think I’ve probably stared at my nails several hours a day while wearing this. I cannot wait to get more holos, as this is the only true linear holographic polish I own. I’m waiting to get a bottle of Jade Magia Negra in a swap, so excited! Anyway, there’s rumours GOSH are bringing this back soon (August/September?) so keep your eyes open for it! I know I’ll certainly be picking up some extra back-ups.
Have you tried holographic polishes?
