Review: George by Asda Nail Polishes!

C: if you saw our haul post the other weekend you will know we both invested in some new nail polishes ready for spring – you can see the post here. Mainly because they were super cheap (2 for £3!) but since trying these I have been suprised by their quality and wanted to share my findings with you!

This was the mani I created with the colour “fuzzy peach” and an MUA white from Annie’s collection. I was in a bit of a rush so didn’t bother with a base or topcoat (naughty I know) so wasn’t expecting much from my bargain polishes. However to my surprise even with no top coat they lasted 3 days without chipping! Iv had polishes that cost over double these last less time with a top coat!

So once they chipped I tested them with a topcoat… 6 days. 6 DAYS. I applaud you Asda. 10 points to gryffindor. They also apply smoothly and are opaque in 2 coats… What more could you want for the equivalent of £1.50!

Have any of you guys tried the George nail polish range? Did you have the same experience? Let us know! #twolittleowls

A Saturday Haul

A&C: Yesterday we took a trip to our local town and had a mooch around lots of different shops. Amazingly, we didn’t buy any clothes – but with Chloe’s baby belly slowly growing, she had more exciting stuff to buy. We got a real mixture of bits and bobs because we started in Asda, then headed to Dunelm and finished off at The Range (our second favourite shop after TK Maxx). So what did we get?

A: Firstly, some treats from the cosmetics aisle in Asda. Brow drama by Maybelline in Medium Brown. My eyebrows have always been my nemesis. They’re so fair that they’re practically non-existent, and I normally fill them in with eyeshadow. But this does have the tendency to wear off so by the end of the day they’ve normally disappeared. But after I saw Chloe pick this up I thought I might as well give it a go – and it was only £4.99 so a bargain if it does the trick! I then picked up some summery coloured nail varnishes, two from George at Asda’s own make up brand (they were 2 for £3 so I obviously couldn’t just get one!), the lilac and the pale coral. And a super pale mint green from Maybelline’s Speed Dry Collection, which I can’t wait to use!

And from The Range Chloe talked me into buying this hideous (but amazing?!) rug for my living room, which was just £11.99. And this beautiful lampshade was my favourite purchase of the day, with a gorgeous floral print and brightly coloured peacocks. This was £6.99 – a bargain which will be perfect to use as inspiration to decorate my bedroom.

C: so basically Annie copied me on the Brow Drama – I have seen loads of good reviews, and now I have perfected drawing in my eyebrows I need something to keep them in place all day! And then I proceeded to copy Annie’s nail polish choices! I needed a new lilac as I spilt mine (wahhhh) so I also chose these two in the colours “cool lilac” and “fuzzy peach”. First impressions are good for such cheapies, as I quickly painted my nails yesterday afternoon and they haven’t chipped yet even though I didn’t have time for a top coat!

I then got this amazing duck egg blue light shade from Dunelm homestore for £12.99 that is gonna look absolutely beautiful in my new bedroom once we move, and this flamingo fabric for £8.99 a metre! I am in love with this fabric, and I am going to get my lovely mother to make some curtains for my nursery with it – as I found out a couple of weeks ago that we are having a girl! This is perfect for us, as we don’t want her room to be bright pink and overly girly. Then lastly I got the same light shade as Annie! Its horrid and I have had to hide it from L so he doesn’t moan but I don’t care I love it!

Let us know what you think of our hauls! We don’t get time to go shopping anymore (boo to Chloe working weekends and having too much uni work) so hauls are few and far between and we loved getting the chance to actually go shopping! #twolittleowls

OOTD: mismatching prints

Shirt: Asda
Pinafore Dress: Primark
Shoes: Primark

A: Something a little different today, a work OOTD. I actually work in an office so always have to look smart and presentable – but I never like to look boring. I steer away from suits and structured clothing because they just don’t suit me – I like to let my personality shine through, even if it’s just a little. This is one of my favourite things to wear for work. It’s super comfy, easy to wear and looks smart, and the shirt and dress do not crease at all – perfect. Although when I wear this my boyfriend always ask why I’m wearing my Tetris dress and why I don’t wear it with a shirt that matches. No idea what he is talking about, florals and checks go perfectly well together!

C:I love this outfit! It just shows that you can look smart for work whilst not looking boring, and showing off some personality! I think a lot of people are a little nervous about clashing prints, and this is the perfect way to start. Pick something a darker colour (like this pinafore dress) and then choose a brighter print to go underneath. As long as one of your prints is relatively simple, you can’t go wrong! Let us know if you try it!
