George Gel Polishes

I love finding new nail polishes, particularly bargain ones and I can't help wondering down the make-up isle whenever I go to ASDA. I spotted these new Gel Pro Nail Polishes a while back and although I have never really taken much notice of the George make-up range, I was surprised at how good the selection of nail polishes was and had to give them a try.
The shade range in the Gel Pro range isn't fantastic but they do have lots of lovely polishes including glitter ones and caviar beads for bargain prices. The Gel Pro polishes were on offer for £2, usually £3, so who could argue with that.
I love the gel style polishes that are out and rely on Barry M Gellys for my day-to-day nails. I hoped to find an amazing bargain here but I have to say I wasn't too impressed. The colours are lovely and I really like Rose for a summery colour but the formula wasn't great. They chipped after a few hours as you can see on my first finger, and although you can't tell on the picture they came out a little streaky.
They are a bargain but I say splash out the extra couple of quid for Barry M, the quality is so much better.

Have you tried any of the George make-up range? I'm not convinced.


  1. Thanks for the review, I like George's Matte Topcoat and the couple of normal cremé polishes from there but haven't tried these ones. Think I'll skip them though now :)

    I've never tried them before, I guess you can't expect too much for £2 but I can't help comparing everything to Barry M. You just can't beat them for quality and value for money

  3. I've just bought this in Plum, and applied 2 generous coats, not letting the first fully dry before the second, so it isn't streaky at all -I'm a fan so far, let's see how long it will last before chipping!
