I ♥ GOSH Purple Heart
Recently I was elated to find GOSH nail polishes at Duane Reade in NYC at 40 Wall Street and "Purple Heart" was one of the two beautiful purples I chose.
"Purple Heart" is a dusty duo-chrome that morphs from metallic purple to a cool greenish chrome. While purple is the primary color, the steely gunmetal hidden inside flashes strong.
There are those subtle green tones!
I was expecting "Purple Heart" to be a thin color in need of "underwear", but this polish was almost perfect in one coat. The brush however was a little funny, it clumped together and fanned out only after the tenth nail as I was applying.
I forgot my beef with the brush after wearing this polish for four days with minimal tip wear. This is a color I personally didn't tire of - I typically am itching for a new shade after only a couple days :) While it's not a rainbow in a bottle, it is fascinating to watch as your nails change from strong purple to chrome in an instant.
Are GOSH polishes available where you live? What are some of your favorite shades?
