Mani of the Week - George Cloudless Sky and Teal Shatter

I was in ASDA last week picking up a few things for dinner when I spotted an offer on their home brand nail varnishes, all down to £1. I had never tried George varnish before so I thought why the heck not! They are all smallish pots but they had some nice colours. I figured at a £1 they probably wouldn't be great quality, but they would be ok for work and stuff. 

I really liked the Shatter Top Coat as they had it in a Teal colour, which I haven't seen in any other brand yet, so I bought that and a blue colour to go under it. Here is my Mani of the Week

 Blue base coat in No.9 Cloudless Sky - I was pleasantly surprised by this polish. It only took 1 coat to be completely covered, this is pretty rare of most polishes.

Shatter Top Coat in Teal - At first I wasn't too pleased as it didn't seem to shatter at all, usually they are almost instant in breaking as soon as you have painted it on, but after a few seconds it did start to shatter quite nicely. It is almost more of a bark/paint-strip effect instead of a shatter. But the colour is really beautiful. If you paint it too thin it doesn't shatter clearly but if you paint it too thick it just has 1 or 2 thick cracks instead. I think layered over the blue it looked a little like seaweed!

Now I didn't add a clear top coat, so I knew it wouldn't last ages, but sadly it didn't even last 2 days!
This is what it looked like after 2 showers and 1 load of washing up:

Now it isn't too bad really, but this started happening within only a few hours sadly, ah well what can I expect of a £1 nail varnish! lol!

Has anyone else tried a George polish before? What are your opinions? Do you like them.

  1. I really like the colours and effect of this! Most of my polishes only last two days, even the pricier ones..I think I wash my hands too often! I guess it would be good for a party or wedding when you only need it to last one evening :)

  2. LOVE this polish! it looks so cool! and my nails always seem to chip :(

  3. I love the effect that shatter polish has! It drives me nuts when polish chips quickly.

  7. I bought Chanel nail varnish once, just to try it out and it was awful! It chipped so badly! I don't think price always means quality! I think this looks pretty good!
