OPI's Go Goth set contains four mini polishes (Unripened, Nevermore, Sanguine and Obscurity) and one free cuff bracelet. I'm not using the cuff bracelet but I'll be definitely using the polishes! The packaging is nice, it comes in a nice designed small box and on the back of the box there are nail art tips. Very simple so everyone can do this, big plus!
But the most important thing of this post, the swatches!
First up is Unripened, a black based glitter. The glitter in the bottle looks blue and purple but on the nail it comes out like a greenish blue, very nice. The formula was really good and it was opaque in two coats. This shade is also available full size but I haven't been able to get my hands on it. If you have one and don't like it, think of me, pleaaaase? ;-)
Meet Nevermore, a purple based polish with purple and blue shimmer. The shimmer is leaning towards glitter but is too fine for me to call it glitter. Also this one applied nice, I used two coats and it was completely opaque. Now this one is reaaaaaaaally familiar but I'll tell more about it at the end of the post.
This is Sanguine, a dark red shimmer. This polish is lit from within, which basically means that you can see the colour really good on the center of your nail but it turns black towards the edges of your nail. I love shades like this! Application was good and I also needed two coats for this one.
Last but not least, Obscurity. Obscurity is a black matte polish. I'm not a big fan of mattes like this but it applied better than most mattes I tried. It was opaque with one coat but it showed little imperfections so I used two. I also used top coat over my index finger so you can see how it looks glossy - just like your regular black creme.
You've all seen the swatches, now I want to talk about Nevermore because it looked soooo familiar when I tried it. I took out the OPI bottle I was suspecting and guess what - they still looked alike!
The bottle I took was OPI Ink, and seriously, they are alike. I haven't read a lot in nail polish land lately because my laptop died but I haven't seen a comparison so here's one for you:
Well, they are alike. To me these are definitely dupes so if you want to buy yourself a full bottle of Nevermore (not there) - buy Ink. I'm quite sad about this really because if I worked at a nail polish company I'd create a new shade but hey, that's me, and hopefully I'll work there in a few years hehe.
What's your take on the Go Goth set?
