Gosh is a Danish brand that is sold at Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada. They’re sort of mid-range for a drugstore product, and though I haven’t tried any of their other makeup products, the price seems about right judging from the quality of the nail polish (about CA$7).
I actually got this particular polish for free. Turns out Shoppers was passing out free goodie bags near my husband’s office, and being a sucker for all manner of free things, he instinctively went to nab it. It contained a smattering of random drugstore products: he immediately ate the Ferrero Rocher, ignored the various creams and gels, and passed off this nail polish to me.
I already own about three Gosh polishes, so I was pretty stoked to see that this color is one that I don’t already have. Granted, it’s not a color I’d have bought for myself, but I ain’t arguing with free.
Boot Camp (011) is, as you’d expect, an army khaki green with strong golden olive shimmer.
The formula is a tad more liquidy than I personally like, and as such, it has a slight tendency to pool against the cuticles. Aside from that, it applies quite nicely and is not too streaky for a heavily shimmered (though not quite frosty) shade. Two coats is fine, but I used three coats in my swatch to achieve a more intense color.
Gosh Nail Lacquer (English site) is 0.3 fl. oz. / 8 mL, and it retails for DKK 59.95 / $7 CA. They are free of formaldehyde, and are generally made in the EU. I’ve had a previous bottle that seemed to be made in Denmark; Boot Camp was made in France.
