NOTD - Twister Matt Finish by George


I thought it would be nice to show you my first ever matt nail polish - I do own a matte top coat which basically goes over everything (so there isn't much point in buying matt nail polishes). However I haven't got a shade really like this and it was also only £1.50. A total bargain - but the whole George nail polish range at Asda is great. I'm also really into ''Mysterious' which just a normal fast drying nail polish - I would of shown you that as well however for some reason my camera likes to change certain purples into a royal blue colour! 

Twister on the other hand is true to colour - It really is a lovely nail polish that is opaque in one coat, however this doesn't last long on the nails. Maybe a day, a day and a bit if you are lucky. I'm guessing this is down to the nail polish being matte...it's still no excuse though. 
However the good thing about matt nail polishes is they can be reverted back into nice glossy nails with any top coat. 


Which is what you can see here on my index and ring fingers - just a normal clear top coat will do it. However be warned for some odd reason the fast drying type top coats don't seem to work, they just seem to sit there and don't dry. 
So for £1.50 it is quite a versatile nail polish.


Overall the matt range is worth a look - I think they currently have around 4 different matt shades all quite dark so perfect for Autumn/Winter and if you do find they chip too quickly for your liking you can always revert your nails back into glossy nails. 
 A really nice range.

I love that shade, such a bargain. I really need to find an ASDA that stocks the George make up.

That's a really lovely shade. It reminds me of one of the matte polishes that Zoya released last year (can't remember the name).

I like George polishes but we dont have an Asda near me :(

Brilliant - I really like the look of these, I just wish they had been around 20yrs ago when I would have had the energy to apply. Thanks for the post and pics Jan x

nice colour! shame about how long it lasts. ive got a feeling though that more brands will start doing matte colours (they probably have already but i havent been into boots in forever!) matte top coat is on my list though!
love the blog as always :) x

I really like George nail varnishes - they're bloody great.

Definitely now craving a trip to the store to check out what new colours they have in. That one's really nice - makes a change from all the pastelly colours all summer!

I'm currently wearing a George one, I think it's called 'Nightmare' - love it. It's a silvery/pewter sort of colour & it's gorgeous. Plus, I'm on day 5 now, with NO chips whatsoever. Just can't go wrong for the price :)
