GOSH Gasoline

I fell in love with this color from seeing photos of it online. I was glad to get it in a swap. It's a grape purple with pink and purple shimmer. This was a bit difficult to photograph because the sparkles are more pronounced in low light as opposed to sunlight. Which is odd because usually sparkly polishes really shine in the sun. This one was shy!

Also, it was cloudy and close to raining when I took these.

This one is color accurate.

I know not everyone has access to GOSH so I attempted to find/make a dupe. I thought Pure Ice Rio was a close match to the sparkle and I just needed to find a purple base that matched Gasoline. I use China Glaze Grape Pop and China Glaze Grape Juice and layered Pure Ice Rio over each one. Not a match but Grape Juice with Rio is a close match - just a bit lighter.
