George Gel Pro Polish in Nude Pink

IMG_2600You may remember I tried a Gel Pro last year in the hope I could bring you another cheap alternative to gel nails but was massively disappointed. I found it thick and gloopy to apply and that it bubbled up as it dried which made for a less than perfect finish. I wasn’t interested in trying any more and when George contacted me and offered to send me a selection of their products I specifically told them I wasn’t interested in these. They sent them anyway of course and this colour stood out. I’m not sure I have anything like it, probably because it’s not bright, glittery or metallic but it’s so polished (pardon the pun) and a go with anything kind of neutral so I thought I’d give it a go.

My second experience with Gel Pro couldn’t have been more different than my first. It was a breeze to apply, not thick or gloopy at all and in truth I think the only reason it bubbled this time was because I went slightly too thick on my last layer. It’s like an entirely different product so whether they have changed things in the last year or it had been stored somewhere that had led to the formula going bad etc I have no idea but I would not actually recommend these. I also have a top coat to try which I will be putting against my Seche Vite to see whether 1. it gives a good, glossy finish to my other polishes and 2. it extends the wear time. The finish in these photos is that of the polish alone with no top coat which is pretty impressive so I’m hopeful.

Available at Asda stores for £3 a bottle

Have you tried these?

    I was going to try this nail polish line but considering you don’t reccomend them, I’m just going to spend my pennies else where.

    Excellent post. I’ve been on the hunt for a nice nude nail-polish for a while now and this colour with pink undertones looks lovely! Must try it out for myself!
    Keep posting!

    This colour is so similar to essie’s eternal optimist… I love that one as it lasts a week without chipping. As you love essie polishes maybe give that one a go?

    I bought an Asda gel polish on a whim a few weeks ago, and found it surprisingly good! It’s a shame you weren’t too keen, my only issues were the brush (which could have been better) and the shade (which was supposed to be a raspberry, but came out brown?!)

    I absolutely love this colour but live in Australia so can’t get it here. Can you recommend another brand that has a similar colour that I could get e.g. Essie? Also, how long do you keep your nail varnish for? Does it have a use by date? Thanks so much.
