GOSH SS15 Swatches

We were lucky to receive a tip-off on GOSH's SS15 press launch by the lovely Vicky from The Polish List and found ourselves heading to the W hotel to have a sneak peek at their new products. Naturally we headed straight for the nail polish stand and were instantly intrigued by the shades on offer. Annoyingly the polishes were housed in a dark corner so our pics on the night weren't great but we got the jist of the palette. The shades are very pretty, a combination of dusky pastels and brights with a couple of curve balls that could fit in an autumn collection. 
Moroccan Night* This is one of the shades that we thought could fit in a more autumnal collection as it is quite dark for spring. Having said that it's one of my favourite shades of the collection. It also applied easier than the others and could be a one coater. This is two layers with a top coat. 
Sunkissed* Whilst I like this shade I have come to the realisation that oranges do not really suit my skin tone. This coral has a very orange tone to it and it does not mix well with my pale pink! This is two layers with a top coat. 
Apple Bloom* This colour is lovely. It is similar to Barry Ms new Pole Position, a gorgeous chalky green that is lovely for spring. This is two coats and a top coat. 
Sea Foam* This colour is one for later in the year. I'm afraid that my camera didn't seem to pick up the colour in full as it's actually a tad darker, a little bit more navy, than it shows here. This is two coats with a top coat. 
Pretty Ballerina* This is my favourite shade of the collection. It's so pretty. A beautiful and pale dusty pink. This is three coats with a top coat. 
French Dream* This is another of my favourites. The shade is beautiful, a pale lilac/grey. It also reminds me of one of the new Barry Ms: Lap of Honour. A great shade for the office this spring. This is three coats and a top coat. 
Snow White* This colour intrigued me the most as we overheard one of the PR ladies talking about it at the event. It apparently has a blue undertone with tiny flecks of glitter to prevent it from looking like Tipp-Ex. Well I couldn't see any glitter at all and I found it still looks a bit Tipp-Ex-y. Luckily that's a look that I enjoy. It did cause panic though as it was the first polish I swatched from the collection and it was SO hard to apply. The new brush did not help at all as it didn't spread the polish very well so for someone like me who doesn't use a clean up brush my lines are a bit jagged. Thankfully not all of the polishes applied like this.
