The MOST asked about nails...

When I twitpic-ed this snap of my nails earlier this week, I got more questions about what it was and where to get it than I've had about any other nail polish. Ever.


It is of course GOSH's Holographic (549) and I must admit all the credit for this fabulous find is shared between two lovely blogging ladies:

1. Milly from PearlsandPoodles for blogging about it the previous week (she has some much better snaps of this polish in all it's holographic glory on her blog!)

2. Lisa from GlitterandLoveX for so kindly offering to post me her unwanted bottle when I wouldn't find it in the shops!

I believe (though I could be wrong!) that it has been discontinued. I have heard from a few people via Twitter that they have been able to get hold of one recently on clearance in their local Superdrug but I have not been able to find one for love nor money around me or in central London.


The good news?! There are currently a few on eBay. You'll have to pay over the odds for them (RRP£5) but this is a really rather special polish. Personally I've never come across anything to compare it too (perhaps OPI my private jet original formula but even then, that is a darker grey/brown not this bright and beautiful silver!)

A few people detest it for it's poor staying power, saying that it can't last a day without chipping but personally, for a polish that looks this fabulous... I don't even mind! It's more of a party polish anyway and I must have been asked five or six times (in one day!) what it was when I wore it last week.

Please let me know if anyone out there has this, wants it or knows where you can still pick it up! I'd love to get hold of some for gifts too so any info would be greatly appreciated! F x

  2. I can find in here in Hong Kong in limited GOSH Cosmetics spots. I also got it after PearlsandPoodles blog about it! I only tried it out once and I painted two coats to at least see the holographic effect, it's not that hard to take off to my surprise! I really like it in general!!
    It sells at HK$78 here, which I think equivalent to £6!!

  5. i agree - it's defo a 'going out' colour! i went to two superdrugs (in central london) yesterday and, of course, they didn't have it.
    but i did get the myfacecosmetics lil bling polishes - they are uber cute and such fun colours!!

  9. Well, i'm from HK, so I think they have them in our local drugstore.
    I was thinking maybe I can get them for you if you're really desperate, like if you really want it, i don't mind :)

  10. I love holo's like this. I do own it but can you believe I haven't swatched it yet what's wrong with me. I wish the new Chg Tronica collection were like it. I hope you will be able to find more of this amazing polish :D

  13. Wow! This nail polish looks amazing! If I see it in Superdrug, I will definitely buy it! I also like 'Rainbow' by GOSH. I like to layer it on the top of matte nail polish :)

  14. I saw some in a shop in Iceland just now..probably a bit far for you to go though! ;) I almost picked one up but I figured I would only wear it once or twice so I thought I'd save my pennies. :)
    I'd be happy to pick one up for you and send it if you like, just email me. :) x

  17. Make Up Store has 4 different holog. polishes and this one looks exactly like their "SIW" polish.
    Never tried GOSH though, we don't have that here in Sweden... :)

  18. I love this polish. If you put it on by itself, it really is horrible at staying on but I've found that if you layer it, it stays on for days and days. To keep it silver, I just layer it over a silver, but if you layer it over other colors, it takes on that color a little bit. I love layering it over a light purple, it's brillant. It changes if you put a top coat on over it and not for the better.

  25. I managed to get hold of this polish tonight at the Superdrug in the Trafford Centre, Manchester! I had to pay full price for it which was a bit upsetting but I got the last one and I put it on my nails straight away when I got in. It's a bit difficult to work with but if you stick with it you get some awesome results. I'll be posting about this polish on my blog very soon indeed as I think for only £5 it is well worth it...I have disco balls on my nails :D

  26. I have a OPI one that's the exact same, but in black. It blows my mind, I don't get how sparkles can be so colourful!

  27. You can by the brand all over denmark....maybe you can order it online from here
