NOTD – George @ Asda Golden Sands Nail Polish

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 2 - 2010


A lovely metallic gold, this is 3 coats and I was pleased enough with the application.  Another shade that shouldn’t suit, but kinda does.

I haven’t come across an Asda doozie since that pale blue, but then I’ve mostly stayed away from those pastelly shades since.

I’m pleased to report that my nails are growing slowly but steadily since stumpgate… but spare a thought for Jo at beautyliciouslove who recently lost a nail (practically the whole thing down to the cuticle – ouch).

I’m gonna try and get the winners post up in the next couple of days from my advent giveaway – so be sure to check back!

    Awwww you’re so sweet Charlotte, thinking about me and my poor finger, cant really call it a nail, as theres hardly any nail there haha :(. Suppose it’ll save me some money though, before I broke it I had my eye on sooo many polishes. Most of which I saw on your blog haha.

    Im really liking this one, would have never picked it up myself. I think a bit like you and would assume it wouldn’t suit me, but Its really nice when on the nails.
