I let George do my nails.
I have so many nail polish bottles that I keep them in two shoes boxes!, I don't buy them often as with three children there is always something needing money more than my feet. I am very lucky and my lovely mum buys me lots usually in a gift set so I get four or five at once.
I have seen the George makeup range in my local Asda store before but I haven't really stopped to look until a few months ago when the nail polish range caught my eye, they had some fabulous bright and citrus shades which are rather on trend at the moment.
The price of the polish is only £1.75 so I decided to treat myself to a couple. I picked up a gorgeous bright pink with an Orange tone and a pale Pink colour.
The polish comes in a clear bottle with a tall black screw lid with the brush attached and the bottle contains 6ml of polish.
Before applying I did the usual and shook the bottle and screwed the black lid off, I was pleased that the brush was quite neat and long rather than the short stubby varieties that you can get with lower priced brands.
The polish looked quite thick when it was on the brush and not weak as I had actually expected, unfortunately when I put the polish on it was actually quite watery in consistency and did not go on as a block of colour and was very patchy. I decided to reserve judgement until the colour dried as some polish does look better when dry.
I completed both hands and was very disappointed with the result as not one nail looked evenly coated and I was wearing a base coat that evens out the nail base so I knew that this patchy look was down to the polish and not my nails.
It did dry really quite quick and I then went on and applied another coat and this did improve the colour, it looked more like the colour on the bottle and also made the nails move even in colour and as it was the pale shade I was able to just use two coats to get a good even colour. My nails dried to quite a nice shine as well and this did last although I do always wear a top coat.
I did notice that after a day or two the polish was slightly chipped in places and I think that this might have been worse had I not applied a top coat, however with just a few touch ups I did wear the polish for the best part of a week.
I have also used the brighter colour and strangely enough this colour applied well with just one coat although I did have to apply three coats to get the colour to look vibrant and have a shine.
Removing the polish was easy enough and I found it no more difficult to remove than any other polish and while most don't leave a stain on your nails the dark ones may so you should always use a base coat. This will help the colour go on smoother but also protects the nails from staining.
I have since purchased a four more shades in the polish range as they almost every colour under the sun and add new ones to reflect fashion such as darken green and the fluorescent colours. If you do like to follow fads or trends it's a great way to keep up with them and you wont worry when it goes out of fashion at that price.
