day two hundred and thirty six, asda bronze

first things first! yesterday someone asked me if my pictures were with a basecoat and topcoat. i ALWAYS use a basecoat (my nails are pretty weak and thin), and i am always wearing a topcoat unless i specifically say i'm not! :)

so this is the part where my mind gets blown. in the UK we have levels of grocery stores in terms of posh-ness. there are the super fancy ones, the fancy ones, the normal ones, the cheap ones and the trashy cheap ones. asda falls in the cheap category. they have their own line of nail polish and i usually ignore it because for £1.53 it can't be that great and it's ASDA, they're supposed to be rubbish! but i bought this one on a whim and i'm stunned. it's AMAZING! it's this beautiful bronze with red, gold and green shimmer packed throughout. i mean...it's breathtaking! this isn't what i expected from a £1.53 bottle of nail polish. application was a little on the thin and streaky side but with 3 coats it wasn't a problem.

seriously. i'm amazed!

Very nice polish. Sometimes those cheap ones can be surprising.

Hows the wear? I've seen this around and have been tempted to try it...but some other cheap polishes have horrendous tip wear after not very long at all...

okay, i only wear polishes for a day but i still have a job to go to and don't just sit at home...and it lasted all day. no chips until i took it off at the end of the day! i went out and bought 4 more today. and for £1.53...if they stay on all day and don't look horrendous i'm sold :)

I have some ASDA polishes from this range. They were pretty hit and miss - 2 were good and the other 2 were disappointing. Might go and get this one now though!
