George at Asda: Buttercup Shine NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 27 - 2011

Everytime I head into town I can’t move for a sea of yellow nails (exaggerating? me?) and it’s a trend that I was happy to watch pass me by until I saw George at Asda getting in on the act.  C’mon, it was a quid, I know you understand!

Four coats and still a little patchy in places… it’s not a bad formula for a notoriously tricky shade to get right but I’m not in a hurry to repeat the experience.  It’s a little more custard than I’d like but I admire its outright boldness.  I think I’m just gonna pop it in the back of this drawer though… *slam*

Have you embrace the yellows this Summer yet?

    Wow, that is a blindly bright (but in a good way!) colour! I’m impressed. But too much of a coward to try it

    WOW! That’s a feast for the eyes. I bet it’ll look divine against dark skin tones.

    That is almost blinding! I’m unconvinced about yellow, I tried Rimmel Lemon Drop but with my pale skin I look a bit dead (0.o)

    Chanel Mimosa dupe, perhaps?

    Looks so gorgeous, was looking forward to rocking this polish on my newly grown nails…until five of them broke in one day. All this, AND my iPhone 4 (which was only replaced last week for microphone defects…) screen shattered to bits!

    Sorry, not relevant…
