ugly ugly polish swatch

I don't even feel like titling this post correctly because of how much I hate this polish.
I figured I would post this now and then post my nice nails in the morning or afternoon. Just so tomorrow isn't a yucky post.

This is a swatch of Gosh's Purple Heart.
When I saw this in the store under artificial light it looked really cool and duochromey, almost the colors of gasoline. Purple, green, blue, bit of pink.
But it does not look that way on the nail.

This is just so gross. Gray with purple and sometimes green flash.
But it doesn't look the way it does in photos - the shimmer isn't so particle-y, if you know what I mean. It just looks like metallic purple somehow coming from gray polish, that turns disgusting green when you turn it towards the light the right way.

Blehhhhhhh it's like the grossest green ever.


Most of the time it just kinda looks like that unless you're next to a light source. But again more smooth metallic than shimmery.

I just hate this. Super bummed that I bought it for $5.49 and tax. It is just pure yucky. For me at least.

What's your verdict?


  1. this is such a disappointment!! i seen this one a while ago and always wondered what it would look like on the nail.
    now i know never to buy it, hahaha.

  2. I like it, but I like weird things like that.

  3. It doesn't look so bad on your pics in my opinion. I don't get Gosh in Switzerland so I can see it irl.

  4. I doesn't look that bad :) maybe a bit disappointing but not reallyreallysuper ugly ...

  5. Lol! I still really like it...


  6. This has been on my wishlist for a while and it does look beautiful in the store. I think I just like weird polish because this didn't turn me off of it. I like weird greens, heh. :)

  7. I bought this polish today on clearance, so while I was waiting for it to dry a little bit, I thought I'd look up reviews of it. Honestly, to me, my nails look nothing like your photos. Mine look much more purple than grey. I quite like this color actually.
