Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500, Jess Nail Polish Oxygen, Water Decals & Stamping With Pueen 77

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that I’m doing for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. This is challenge #6 VIOLET NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs). This is a gorgeous purple polish.

I used MoYou London‘s Orchid Chic stamping polish and Pueen‘s 77 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

For the ring fingers and pinkies I used floral water decals and 2 coats of Jess Oxygen. Jess nail polishes used to be exclusive to Poundland, but the brand disappeared.

I really liked this mani. Purple is one of my favourite (nail) colours, and the decals looked very nice with the holo glitter top coat.

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

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. 🙂

Miss Sporty Dr Balm Gossip Kiss SOS

Hi there! A friend of mine gave me two Miss Sporty lip balms as a present the other day. And today I’m letting you know what I think of this Miss Sporty Dr Balm Gossip Kiss SOS lip balm. First of all, this lip balm has a slight orange tint and it smells of melons. So far, so good.

In regards to its moisturising qualities, I think this lip balm does a fairly decent job. It glides on smoothly and it feels nourishing without being too sticky. I’m currently using this lip balm as a base for my lipliner which works fine. I’m quite happy with this lip balm and I’ll definitely use it up.

In regards to the other Miss Sporty lip balm, I forgot the exact name, but it was a beige one and it smelled like a mix of cheese and gym socks. I chucked it out. Apparently it was supposed to be honey-flavoured, but it smelled really rank.

Anyway, if you’d like to try any of the Miss Sporty Dr Balm lip balms, you’d have to look for them online because they seem to have been discontinued.

Miss Sporty Studio Colour Duo Eye Shadow 204 Babe

Hi there! I’ve added a nother mini eyeshadow duo to my beauty stash. This is Miss Sporty Studio Colour Duo Eye Shadow 204 Babe. I got this one for 50p, so I won’t moan about how disappointed I was when I realised this was a sparkly eye duo (I swear it looked matte in store). Anyway, I managed to work it into my routine.  🙂

I would describe the two eyeshadows as a pale lavender and a soft purple. I’ve taken photos with and without flash. For some reason the shimmer doesn’t show up in the bottom swatch (no flash), but you can trust me, it’s there. And it’s quite prominent.

In terms of quality, I’m happy with the intensity of the colours and that they stay put. They’re just as good as Rimmel or Sleek eyeshadows. Whilst I wouldn’t do an eye make-up with these two shades only, I’ve done a few nice looks combining these two with greens and neutrals from my Garden of Eden palette.

I believe Miss Sporty Studio Colour Duo Eye Shadow 204 Babe has been discontinued, but you might still find it online or in a bargain store.

Miss Sporty Morning Baby BB Cream 001 Nude Radiance

miss psortyMiss Sporty Morning Baby BB CreamHi there! I could never warm up to primers because they make my dry skin worse, but someone suggested I try a BB Cream – and that’s what I did. I thought I’d start with a cheap product and see how it goes first. And that’s how I ended up using Miss Sporty Morning Baby BB Cream in 001 Nude Radiance.

At first let me tell you that this product is not a BB Cream. It doesn’t contain sunscreen and I don’t feel like I’m getting any skin benefits from it. It claims to be a skin perfecting make-up, but I don’t see it. At all.

Based on my experience using this product under my actual make-up for several weeks now, I don’t think it’s moisturising, it doesn’t erase skin imperfections, it doesn’t make my skin feel or look smoother, and it doesn’t give my skin a natural complexion.

I find the shade 001 Nude Radiance to be too dark and too orange. I would have expected a lighter shade. I’m also not happy with the coverage I get from this BB Cream – it doesn’t do much in this regard.

Another thing that really annoys me is that I have to apply the right amount the first time as it’s not buildable and it will start to crumble (yes, crumble!). I have now found the right amount of product to use, but the tube is almost empty…

I wouldn’t really recommend Miss Sporty Morning Baby BB Cream – unless you have oily skin and an even skin tone. I know this product is aimed at teenagers, but I don’t see how it would help cover up blemishes and the likes.

If you want to try Miss Sporty Morning Baby BB Cream, it’s available in two shades – Nude Radiance and Beach Radiance – for £3.49 each at most drugstores.
