Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 470 & Color Club Holiday Splendor

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 470 (2 coats). I’m impressed with this cheap polish – the dark green shade is beautiful, the formula is amazing, and I’ve also noticed that the polish dried fairly quickly. 😍

The glitter top coat I used is Color Club Holiday Splendor – it’s holographic silver glitter in a green jelly base. It’s also a Christmas glitter top coat. 🎄

What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to let me know via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours 345 & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 40 Midnight Glitz

Hi there! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great start into the new week. 😊 I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today…

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours 345 (2 coats). This is a quick dry polish that actually does dry in no time. Awesome stuff!

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 40 Midnight Glitz. This top coat contains medium sized black hex glitter as well as gold holographic glitter in different shapes and sizes.

I liked this mani, and I will redo it once my nails have grown a bit longer again.

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 & Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888

Hi there! I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats). This is a gorgeous purple polish!

The glitter top coat is Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888 (1 coat). I like this silver holo top coat. It looks amazing in the sun! 😍

I liked this mani a lot. I wish my camera had been able to capture its purple holographic amazingness better.

I’m very happy with the quality of these polishes. It’s sad Miss Sporty products can no longer be found anywhere.

Miss Sporty Lipliners – 007 Slow, 013 Coconut, 014 Earth

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Miss Sporty lipliners that I picked up recently (for £1 each) – the shades are (from top to bottom) 007 Slow, 013 Coconut, and 014 Earth. I haven’t seen Miss Sporty products at Boots or Superdrug for a while. I think it’s safe to say the brand will disappear once and for all as soon as the end-of-line discount stores will have sold their stock.

However, since Poundland (this is where I bought these lipliners) and other brick-and-mortar and online stores are still selling Miss Sporty products, I thought I’d do a quick review in case someone’s wondering whether they’re worth picking up. 😊

I’ve been using these lipliners for a few weeks now, and I think they’re really nice. These lipliners are highly pigmented, they’re soft, and they can even be worn as matte lipsticks! I’ve also noticed they look great with gloss on top! What else? These lipliners stay on. They don’t slip. And I like the colours I picked up because these nude-to-brown shades look great on me (I have pale skin, green eyes and ginger hair).

All in all, I’m happy I bought these lipliners, and I enjoy using them. But I’m equally sad because they’ve been discontinued. If you see these lipliners at your local discount store and wonder whether they’re any good – yes, they are!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel & Miss Sporty / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #19 Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week, and this means that Nail Week has come to an end.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used small pieces of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of colourful polish to my nails. I started with white blobs over which I applied the following polishes:

Rimmel Lycra Pro 295 Fancy Fushia (pink),
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (lilac),
Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (light blue).

The cute glitter top coat I used is Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 & Stamping With Pueen 99

Hi there! This post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies (1 coat, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I used Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 to add a touch of glitter to the purple nails.

For the images on the blue(ish) nails I used Pueen‘s 99 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The golden polish I stamped with is the sensational Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 400 Sweetie, Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 & Stamping With Pueen 109

Hi there! I have a short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 400 Sweetie (pinkies and ring fingers, 3 coats, but 2 coats would have been fine too) and Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 109 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and MoYou London‘s Orchid Chic stamping polish.

I liked this mani very much. I love the colours purple and yellow, so I was happy that this mani worked out. 🙂

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Astor Pure Colour Eyeshadow 530 Sweet Daisy, Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow 03 Frosted Apple & 05 Chocolate Jewellery, Miss Sporty Studio Colour Smoky Eyeshadows 407 Luxury Smoky

Hi there! Today’s episode of Reducing My Oldies Stash is about a few single eyeshadows and eyeshadow compacts that I’ve had for quite some time. The 2 compacts are Astor Pure Colour Eyeshadow 530 Sweet Daisy and Miss Sporty Studio Colour Smoky Eyeshadows 407 Luxury Smoky.

The 2 single eyeshadows are Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow 03 Frosted Apple & 05 Chocolate Jewellery. Now let me tell you if these products are any good. And let’s start with the Astor compact!

Astor Pure Colour Eyeshadow 530 Sweet Daisy

Astor Pure Colour Eyeshadow 530 Sweet Daisy is a duo eyeshadow compact that comes with a small applicator. The eyeshadows are a bit chalky and they’re not very well pigmented. And the colours turned out much cooler in real life. In the compact the colours look like a pale beige-rose and a brownish purple, but in real life they’re more like lilac and lavender.

I’m OK with lilac and lavender eyeshadows, but I’m not OK with them being chalky and rather poorly pigmented. I will continue to use these eyeshadows, but I don’t know if I can commit to finishing this Astor eyeshadow compact.

Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow 03 Frosted Apple & 05 Chocolate Jewellery

Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow 03 Frosted Apple & 05 Chocolate Jewellery are limited edition eyeshadows. I’m not sure if you would still be able to get your hands on them, but I’m sure that, at some point, Essence will ‘recycle’ these two shades – well, that’s if they haven’t already. 🙂

Frosted Apple is a rosey shade, and Chocolate Jewellery is a medium brown. Both eyeshadows have a metallic finish. I think these eyeshadows are really nice. The shades aren’t too out there – they’re actually fairly neutral, and the velvety texture makes these eyeshadows easy to blend. I enjoy using these eyeshadows, so, of course, I will continue to use them! 🙂

Miss Sporty Studio Colour Smoky Eyeshadows 407 Luxury Smoky

Miss Sporty Studio Colour Smoky Eyeshadows 407 Luxury Smoky is a small eyeshadow compact that comes with a tiny applicator. This compact is really small – it’s about 2cm x 2cm. Anyhoo… this compact contains four eyeshadows – a barely-there pale beige, a golden yellow, a medium grey and an almost black / charcoal shade.

The almost black / charcoal eyeshadow is the only well pigmented one. The other 3 eyeshadows aren’t great. They’re lacklustre. They lack… life! I can make these 4 eyeshadows work for me, but I don’t really enjoy using them. I will continue to use them, and I will try to finish them. Well, this compact is really small, so I think finishing it isn’t impossible. 🙂

Have you tried any of these eyeshadows or eyeshadow compacts? If so, feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by!
