Get your cloaks and petticoats ready because it’s time to introduce this luscious creme nail polish. Gothic is the deepest shade of burgundy nail polish and also leans towards being dark brown. Whether wandering the moors or curling up with a historical novel, Gothic nail polish is a dark mystery of Victorian charm. For an even more dramatic mani, finish with G’Day Matte topcoat!
Most importantly, clean nails before use. Apply a nail foundation. Then shake Gothic nail polish and apply two (2) layers for complete coverage. Finally, apply a topper for a gloss finish. Caring for your nail polish is very important. So, store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep away from heat, flame and unsupervised children.

The colour is perfect for someone like me with a dark soul. Lol. But the formation wasn't so great with this one. It was patchy on first coat and didn't level so well on second coat either. Not so happy with the formula but a great shade anyway.
I love how many dark red shades Picture Polish has!! I chose Gothic in the end because it is that brownish-oxblood shade that is so flattering on any skin tone. It's not overly shiny so could be an office look or for a night out. It's going to be a staple for sure.
As someone who would always lean towards the darker side of nail polish, I really enjoy using Gothic because it gives me the full satisfaction of being gorgeously dark and opaque whilst being the perfect mixture of red and brown. I absolutely adore this colour and whenever I don't know what to choose, I always reach for it because it goes well with everything!!!
Such a beautiful colour, the perfect in between red and brown. I love how deep it is.
Only four stars because when this got into my cuticle it was impossible to get out until I removed the polish, even with straight acetone. But the color though!
