George Asda Matte Finish Polish in Twister NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 3 - 2010

Beautiful shade, great looking finish, 2 easy-to-apply coats and truly, truly inexpensive at £1.50 a bottle.

Which is why the terrible wear breaks my heart.

This is how it looked at the beginning of the 2nd day.  It didn’t look much better halfway through the first day either (I just didn’t have my camera with me).

*sigh* what an unadulterated shame.

    It is a gorgeous.

    I have a couple of matte polishes that don’t hold up as good as normal ones. I tend to notice them buffing off and becoming shiney lol.

    matte polishes in general are not ment to last as long…its a shame though, because this is such a pretty colour! x

    i love love asda polishes! they dry so fast!
    try “frost bite”, “be mine” and “under the sea” :) they’re beautiful!

    This looks like a dead dupe for the Nubar matte Prevail that was released last year. I think the wear was slightly better on the Nubar – not by a lot though. Pesky mattes.

    I LOVE that colour! Even though it would take it shiny, do you think it would last longer with a top coat?

    ….*bursts into tears*

  8. That’s such a gorgeous shade. Sad that it doesn’t last long though. =/

    Went out on a hunt for the George nail polishes, but the staff at my local asda haven’t even heard of George makeup. :/
