Gosh Frosted Sand - Silver & Purple

I'm not sure about textured polishes, so I've held off buying any of the OPI Liquid Sands, since none of the colours yet have really called to me, but when I saw these 'Frosted Sands' shades from GOSH in Superdrug the other day I couldn't resist. Especially as they were buy one get one for half price - so I bought two! There are just three colours in the range, Frosted Silver, Frosted Gold and Frosted Purple. Frosted Purple is actually a very pretty lavendery-gunmetal. I really don't get along with gold nail polish at all, so the choice of two from the three colours was very easy for me!

I decided to try them together as a gradient; I applied one coat of Frosted Purple, then added the gradient with the two colours painted directly on a damp make-up sponge. I went over the gradient twice to get a good density of colour, but even so the mani was very quick and easy to apply. And the two colours are made for each other!

Here are a few macro shots to show the texture a bit better.  I really like how the texture worked out on the mani; I'm not sure if it would be quite so good if I'd just brushed the polish on but the sponge application technique isn't a lot of extra effort even if you're only wearing a single colour, so I'll probably sponge the last coat if I wear either of these colours alone in future.  I'll certainly be checking out the GOSH stand again to see if they release any other textured colours; I like these a lot!

  5. Lovely. I've seen these but not bought any. I have some similar to the purple I have from Germany, so I think I might just get the silver one. Like you, golds are not my thing.

    1. Thank you!

      I'm not sure just what it is about gold, it's probably the only colour I won't wear, but I really don't like it!

  6. I SO almost bought these but then ended up getting a couple of Seventeen ones from Boots instead, which I looove. I could be tempted to these now I've seen your pictures, though...
