Gosh Nail Glitter: Review and Giveaway

Posted by on Oct 16, 2011 in Fashion & Beauty, Giveaways | 94 comments

Glitter is IN this season, or so I’m told. Not that there is ever a time when a little glitter isn’t welcome – and now you can add your own glitter effects to your nails thanks to a new range of glitter pots from GOSH, available exclusively from Superdrug.



GOSH Nail Glitters are available in ten different shades, and cost just £3.99 a pot. Application is simple: you just apply a base coat of your chosen polish, then dip your nail into the small jar of glitter, and brush off any excess with a cosmetic brush.



You can of course dip your whole nail in for the full glitter effect, or just the tips, or even take a pinch of glitter and sprinkle it over your base coat for a more subtle glitter effect – the possibilities are endless.

My nails are not long enough to do the glitter pots justice, but I enjoyed playing around with the different effects. Here are this week’s nails, painted to match my new filofax and dipped in blue GOSH glitter.

But why not try for yourself? I have five sets of GOSH Nail Glitters to give away, each containing two pots of glitter. All you need to do is leave a comment under this post saying what nail base colour and glitter combination you would like to rock this autumn! The ten GOSH Glitter shades to chose from are: Silver, Gold, Dark Silver, Pink, Rose, Lilac, Purple, Aqua, Blue and Light Lilac.

Five winners will be chosen at random from all comments received by midnight on Sunday 23 October. Each winner will receive two pots of GOSH Nail Glitter in shades chosen by the prize sponsor. I will contact the winners by email, and reserve the right to choose another if no response received within 7 days.

Good luck everyone, and have a sparkly week!

  1. Interesting! I’m always up for trying a new nail effect. I’d probably go for purple or navy blue with silver tips. Does it stay on well or come off in your sandwich?

    • It stays on brilliantly – I had mine on for days before I took it off, but I’m sure it would have lasted a lot longer. I like your choice of navy blue with silver tips, I’m going to try that one as I have navy polish and the silver GOSH glitter pot. Good luck in the giveaway!

  9. What a fab giveaway (especially as my nail art obsession has reached a peak) – love your grey and blue nails, very sophisticated! I got directed here via KatGotTheCream on Twitter & very pleased I am too.

    My nail combination would be (although I can think of about a million) a very deep glossy black base with gold tips. Or, a plain base colour in pale pink, then with a dragged stroke of dark pink on top, with Rose glitter sprinkled on the dragged stroke…as you can tell, loving nail art at the moment!
