NOTD - Oh Gosh is that Barry M?

Poor pinky, still traumatised from trolleygate last week

NOTD today is a demonstration of why you should never write off a polish because the colour doesn't immediately wow you. 

Upon realising the blogosphere was losing it's shizz over Barry M's Dusky Mauve, I did the only sane thing and picked it up. It is exactly what it says on the bottle. Dusky Mauve. Some claiming it a dupe for Chanel's Paradoxical. Which, in fairness it is very close to. 

Forget a before photo? Flickr rocks for that

Yes it's beautiful but just not for me. When low and behold the genius that is Cornflakegirl suggested a Gosh Rainbow topcoat. Gosh's Rainbow is a discontinued lacquer with duochrome flecks in a transparent polish that look like, well, a rainbow.  'Hmm, we'll see' said I, sceptical. But I tried it and guess what? I loves it!

Back from the brink
I'm too sexy for this mo mo

Loving it so much was I that I gave the piggies a go too: 
Orange knuckles. Not just for fingers. 
The gickberry just wouldn't play ball when trying to capture this colour but trust me, it rocks. Yes I am also aware that I have (next to) no pinky nail, I could have been a foot model if it wasn't for that belligerent swine.

I reckon this Rainbow could save many a colour that would otherwise gather dust. 

Have you tried it? Are you a fan of topcoats that morph your polish?
