NOTD and Oh dear George!

I was very VERY excited to find an Asda living store with their cosmetics in the other day, mainly their polishes which were all £1. Unfortunately everyone else had clearly been just as excited as what was left was a very small range indeed, the teeny little turn around.. shelf thingy... was almost empty. 

A few colours remained, one of which was Twister, a gorgeous metallic looking purple in the bottle... Although it wasn't until I was applying it and it was drying matte that I located the "Matte Finish" sticker on the top... Oops! 


Ooh, look how pretty! Unfortunately these pictures were taken in the evening with flash, I would have taken new ones the next day had I not been greeted with chips... Which now, less than 48 hours after painting nails have become this..


Admittedly, this is my right hand, and the above is my left, but that doesn't really matter ;)

I'll update this post if I have any better experiences with this in the future, but for now..

Asda, you disappoint me!

Have you had any experiences with asda polish?

That is a gorgeous colour! Matte polishes do chip very quickly and really easily. I've got a handful of other George polishes and they last about 4-5 days without chipping if I remember correctly :) xx

I really like that colour.

That really surprises me that it's chipped so quickly, I've got quite a few George nail varnishes & I've always found them to be really good - particularly seeing as they're £1/£1.50!

Hope you have a better experience next time :)

What a surprise! You do use a topcoat right? A good topcoat can make a;; the difference! ;)

Really love this colour, have seen it on a couple of blogs, but sadly I live no where near an Asda :(

Oops, my comment obviously didn't go through!

Kim- I do LOVE the colour, I think I'm going to try it with a top coat (not matte) as it did look gorgeous with the shimmer all brought out with the top coat on one finger nail! Hopefully it'll last longer that way too!

Heart Shaped Bruise- Thanks, I don't think it would put me off trying again, it's just a case of tracking down an asda near me that sells the polishes!

KawaiiFreak- I do normally use a topcoat, but as I currently don't have a matte on this one had to do without a top coat, I still expect my polishes to last 24 hours without one though!

Kat O- hope you can find some soon... Find someone to send you some?

Justine- glad you've got your hands on some polishes that you like! :)
