George (Asda) Nail Polish

Hey my Beauties 
How are you all :) 
Well today I am going to show you a little collection of nail polishes from George (Asda) 
Some of you will ask What or Where is Asda .
Well Asda is a British supermarket who sell food, clothing, toys literally everything its not only based in Britain but also in Northern Ireland.  
Asda would be something like Walmart in America 
It would also be like Aldi, Woolworths anyway you get the jist. 
To tell you a little tail first :) My sister and i traditionally go to the North and do a huge food shop enough to do 2 months as we find it amazingly cheap there.  I mean yes we travel about 1 and half hours to shop there but its soooooo worth it.  The stores where we live is ridiculously expensive sometimes and when my twinnies were born there was no way i could afford to keep them fed and afford nappies/diapers etc for them with Asda 
Put it this way i would get 3 packs of nappies/diapers in Asda for the same price as 1 pack where i live.  So now you know why i do this as i have 5 kiddies to feed and also parties etc to have so i stock up for so much less there :) 
Anyway it takes my sister and I at least 3 hours to get around Asda its soooooo big :) :) 
I love it :) 
Along with everything Asda has they have their own little tiny makeup stand :) not to be honest the makeup i am not fussed about it would be good for little teens starting out but i am not one who would try it.  They do sell nail polishes which i have tried before and they are actually quite good 
The last time i was there i came across new released polishes from there and very nearly passed them until my sister pointed out there was a new selection she showed me one and i was in awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I ended up putting 4 shades in my trolley :) :) Well for £1 each I couldn't resist
So enough chit chat lets show you the shades :) 
Unfortunately this one doesn't have a name :( i hate when that happens i like my products to have names i don't know why it is maybe i feel there is more thought put into it or something or maybe its just when someone asks me about it i like to say brand and name of product (sorry I'm babbling again lol) 
This was the one my sister showed me first and i fell in love with it.  This is an amazingly summery pink.  It has the tiniest specks of silver shimmer in it which makes it more noticeable.  It took 3 coats and a top coat to last 5 days before it started to chip.  Its such a bright cheerful shade and one of my favourites :) 
Now this one has a name :) :)
"U the Sea" hmmmm the name is not exactly original but hey its a name :) 
This is more of a jewel toned polish and a fabulous teal/green shade this is very flattering and very noticeable.  It took 3 coats and with a topcoat lasted a week before chipping not bad eh?
"Hoax" well what can i say purple i just love purples even though this was more cool toned on my hands i still loved how it looked :) this took again 3 coats and a good top coat to last a full week on my nails.  This was actually hard to get a good photo of as when i would take the photo it would come out different to what it really looked like for instance this one above is with flash and the one below is in natural sunlight 
 This picture is more like it as you can see this too have teeny tiny specks of silver in it :) 
"Trick"  This is a beautiful Fuchsia Pink Oh boy is this beautiful in person.  This photo is taken in direct sunlight you would get away with only 2 coats of this but i put 3 just because i want it to last a good while :) :) I think this is really pretty and compliments my tanned hands.  Instead of putting a clear top coat on it i decided as it was such a beautiful sunny day i would jazz it up a little :) 
So i used a nail polish i got this week in fact i won it in a little giveaway and couldn't wait to use it as i never tried it before. 

Oh I Just Love it i will review the Topcoat soon But doesn't it look FAB!!!!
Now for my overall opinion of these nail polishes is if you can get your hands on them don't pass them.  For £1 they do more than their moneys worth to be honest.  No they are not perfect but they are great for budget priced.  The shades are exciting and up to date :)   You only need 2 to 3 coats to get good colour payoff.  The brush is quite thin and a little flimzy but you actually get used to it fairly quickly.  They dry very quick too even after 3rd coat which i love as i don't have time to sit around for an hour while my nails dry lol 

Well that's it for now my beauties 
I am sure i will have future post on more polishes from this brand so keep an eye out for that 
:) 
Have you tried Asda's own brand nail polishes 
If so which is your favourite 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck & Laughter
