NOTD -- Miss Sporty

Miss Sporty Lasting Nail Polish

The colour is a deep aubergine with blue microshimmer. This is one of their more pearly shades, and I love it. I bought it because when I was younger I used to have a nail polish almost identical to this, and it came in a teddy bear bottle. I loved it and held onto it for ages, but then when I was tidying my room when I was a kid, I must've chucked it.

The problem with Miss Sporty is that the polishes don't have the names on the bottles; they're just on the display stand in the store. The website allows for some identification, but they don't use actual photos of the nail polish, so it can be hard to match colours with names. This colour is pretty distinctive though, so you'd definitely recognise it if you were to go to Superdrug to buy it.

NOTD -- It's Not My Name

Miss Sporty Lasting Nail Colour in It's Not My Name

I like Miss Sporty nail polishes a lot, these and the eyeshadow pencils are the only things I actually like from their line. The colours are bright, fun and they last quite well. This colour is really fun; it's bright pink with a blue flash, it's fantastic.

NOTD -- Miss Sporty Cherry

Miss Sporty Lasting Nail Colour in Cherry

This colour is the epitome of holiday colours without the need for glitter. It's a gorgeous pearly deep red, which reminds me a lot of the 17 polishes that came out for these holiday season.

NOTD -- Raindrop

Second of my *hopefully* regular NOTD posts!

Miss Sporty Lasting Nail Colour in Raindrop

I was a bit sloppy today, hence the one nail photographed. Side note, I change my nail polish ridiculously frequently. I don't keep the same colour on for more than 2 days usually. This isn't because my polish chips, but because I get bored, and I used to be a nail biter so sometimes I'll pick the polish off rather than let it chip off.

Woo for long winded explanations!

Available from Boots and Superdrug, and also the Miss Sporty website.

NOTD -- BMX Bandit

To make up for the lack of posting, I've woken up extra early to get the sunshine in the mornings in my living room. Expect Nail of the Day posts regularly now :)

Collection 2000 Hot Looks Fast Dry Polish in BMX Bandit

I couldn't get the colour to photograph true to life, it's a little more purple than blue. It's a really nice subdued powder lilac. These nail polishes are in Superdrug and Boots for £1.79.

I'm stuck in a swatching-block at the moment. Where I live, it's become ridiculously grey and overcast every day, so I can't get any decent photos. Apologies! Here, have a nail post.

Barry M Red Glitter layered over Barry M Black.

I love Red Glitter. It's perfect; this was one coat of it and it looked gorgeous.

My swatchfest has stopped as I have two pieces of coursework due in every Tuesday until Christmas, and also, I have rediscovered House :S
