For Audrey

The classic ‘tiffany box blue’ is one of my all time favourite colours and so consequently Chinaglaze For Audrey (which is pretty much the exact same shade) is one of my all time most used, and favourite, polishes. The formula, finish and obviously the colour are all lovely but getting hold of Chinaglaze polishes in the UK can be a bit of a pain as they aren’t easily available.
(I actually hunted for about a month looking for ‘For Audrey’ until I finally found somewhere that shipped to the UK without charging the earth)
So when I was perusing the George’s nail polish range I quickly picked up Smarty pants as all I could think was that it looked pretty much identical to For Audrey.

As you can see they are pretty much exact copies. Smarty Pants perhaps has a slightly more greenish cast than For Audrey but that’s only if you are really scrutinising the two. The formula of smarty pants isn’t as nice as the Chinaglaze however it’s not clumpy or streaky nor is it difficult to work with.
So if you’re looking for a For Audrey dupe which you can get hold of easily this is definitely the closest I’ve seen (and I’ll admit I do have more than a few shades which come close to being dupes but don’t quite match)
And the best bit is it’s a measly £1.45!
Have any of you tried For Audrey? Or do you have another dupe for the Tiffany box blue?
Hope this has been helpful!!x

Wow! That is pretty impressive :)

I have quite a few George nail varnishes & have always been pretty impressed with them - they're a brand I tend to recommend to people, because I think they're underrated!

Oooh I've wanted For Audrey for ages and that is a fab dupe! There isn't an Asda near me actually, but it will still be easier than getting it from the US! :)
