Gosh Gasoline VS OPI Grape...Set...Match

Bottle Comparisons, blurred a bit, but you can see they have a similar finish.

Another bottle comparison

Today I have for you a comparison of GOSH Gasoline and OPI Grape...Set...Match.   In the bottle, I could tell that GSM would be a tad off because it has this goldish shift to it.  Gasoline seems to be a little bit more on the silver side of shimmer instead of gold.  GSM only needed 2 coats, 1 Poshe, but Gasoline needed 3 coats, 1 Poshe.  Gasoline is more of a jelly consistency.  Both have a glass fleck finish.  GSM is a tad darker, but overall, I think it's a good substitute if you can't find GOSH near you.  I believe the Serena Williams duos can still be found online.

Also, today is the extra day of February since it's Leap Year!  So I was chatting with a few ladies on Twitter today...what happens when you don't have 2/29 to celebrate your birthday?!  They said family/friends celebrate it either 2/28 or 3/1.  I guess that makes sense, but I would celebrate both days then!  I read an article about it and I guess it does cause a problems for some born on 2/29 if they have to fill out forms and such!  I guess some computer programs don't acknowledge 2/29 as an actual date, so if you write that as your birthday, they can't process it.  I can't imagine my birthday not being on a calendar.  That seems unfair!  I don't know why I've never thought of that before.  But anyway, that is my little tangent for today!  If you Google, I'm sure there will be lots about birthdays on 2/29.  So if you or someone you know has a birthday today - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  Hope you celebrated yesterday, today, then again tomorrow :-)

blurred comparison

Below is the slight shift I was referring to earlier.  It seems like it turns more of a pink (gold doesn't really transfer to nail) when tilted at an angle.

Overall, I think both colors are beautiful!  I can notice the differences but I'm sure the everyday person wouldn't.  I think Gasoline would be great to layer!  I plan to try that out in the future.  To me, the color is different, but so is the texture of the polish.  As I said before, Gasoline seems to have more of a jelly finish, and may have not even needed a top coat.  I could tell the OPI GSM needed a top coat though, it dried almost flat, not very glossy at all.

I hope you enjoyed my comparison!  Tomorrow will be a GOSH Purple Heart comparison!

Have a great day!

Much Love,


  1. Great comparison!!! They're pretty close. I think I'll go for the GOSH though.
    I knew people born on 2/29 celebrated on the 28th or the 1st, but I never thought about forms being filled out. That's really interesting. I agree, I would not be happy if my birthday wasn't on the calendar!

  2. I think you'll really like the GOSH one, Marisa! It is awesome! And yes, no birthday on the calendar!? That would stink!

  3. They look so similar, but at certain angles you can definitely see the difference! I think I like both equally :) I don't actually know anybody born on 29th Feb... but definitely not fun to only have a proper birthday every 4 years!

  4. Gosh is def my fav although I already own the other..
