In The Middle Of The Night

ASDA Midnight
ASDA Glitter Top Coat
OPI Madd Hatter (on ring finger)

When I recently spied someone wearing a black polish with glitter in it from Topshop, I got a bit inspired. I've never been a fan of black polish, but this seemed to be a perfect lighter way to wear it. And it turns out that Asda is the perfect place to find nail polishes to experiment with too.

I do in fact have a life and do NOT spend my entire time in Asda, despite how it may appear this week!

The black polish is, like all the George at Asda colours it would seem, Quick Dry, and it does, dry quickly I mean. And that for me is a huge bonus- patience is not my virtue. But even better than that is the price. The black polish and the top coat set me back a whole £1.95 each. That's less than half the price of an OPI or Models Own colour for TWO bottles. This my friends, makes me happy.

George at ASDA Glitter Top Coat, £1.95
George at ASDA Midnight, £1.95
I'm sure a lot of you who are more nail-savvy than me would contest the quality of these polishes, but personally, I've been very unimpressed with Models Own, and whilst I like OPI polishes, I detest the price tag. I also find that even better quality polishes rarely stand the abuse a heap on my hands any better than more budget brands like GOSH.

Anybody else tried the Asda polishes? Let me know if it's love or loathe.

Those colours are lovely!

I find all nail polishes chip really easily on me so I prefer not to spend too much on them too. Opi and NailsInc I just cannot justify.

I do like Models Own, but equally I love BarryM for the awesome colours they have, and the equally awesome pricetag!

I'm quite a fan of the George @ Asda nail varnishes & have quite a few of them now. I've always been impressed by them, & have recommended the range rather a lot to people (who I've also managed to convert to the good ol' Asda way!)

I have to say though, they've put the price up if you paid £1.95 for 'em! (Still good value though)

Yay for Asda! :P I have never tried their nail varnish but I have heard a few people rave about it so I will definitely be giving it a go :)

hehe your disclaimer made me chuckle! I used to have a 24 hour asda close to my flat ad the amount of late night "sweet runs" me and the boyfriend used to do were ridiculous! We'd finish work at 1am then go trawling the aisles with the other zombies

Asda never disappoints! I love OPI polishes but would never buy them myself...I always chip and smudge my nails too much to justify it x

Wow- I'mma have to try out Asda's polishes then! I used to stick to barry m, but now just buy whichever brand is selling the perfect colour 2bh! [that isn't extortionate that is]x
