“ Brand: Miss Sporty / Type: Nail Varnish / Subcategory: Nail Polish / Suitable for: Nails „
***Update I initially thought my nail varnish was "cotton candy" I've since found out the shade I have is Dazzle, I have changed this in the description, apologies!***
This is a nail varnish from Miss Sporty's "clubbing colours". The shade I will be discussing is dazzle which is a baby pink colour with a sort of sheen to it. I bought this product because I had a silver version of the same nail varnish a while back and I remember it being superb, I ran out and never got around to replacing it.
The packaging is very standard of a nail varnish product however Miss Sporty's nail varnishs have a sort of fish bowl base to hold the varnish. The lid is white plastic and twists away easily. The nail varnish brush is adequate in size and I can usually coat each nail in three strokes.
You can purchase this product in 13 shades for £1.99 in Boots.
This for me is by far the best cheap nail varnish I've ever purchased. The product is of a good consistency and as mentioned before it is applied to the nail usually within 3 strokes. The pigmentation I feel is very good for the price although because my shade is quite pale I do definitely need to coats, I don't find this a problem though because I would usually apply at least two coats of a nail varnish anyway. With two coats on this varnish provides a really sweet look, the cotton candy pink is really nice and is glistens slightly in the light.
The main positive of this nail varnish for me though is it's longevity. Without a top coat on my toenails I can get 5-7 days from this nail varnish and with a top coat (Barry M) I have had this nail varnish on my toes for 8-12 days. I remember using the silver variety of this for a holiday a while back and despite taking the varnish with my for touch ups it did not chip once even after being in the sea etc I was elated when despite a slight change in packaging and shades this cotton candy shade of clubbing colours was still as good in it's longevity. I really love this nail varnish and I will definitely be going back to boots soon to purchase some more shades, I want the brighter pink one for my next holiday in August!
If you haven't already, give it a try, for such a cheap product this nail varnish really does have brilliant staying power! I love it. 5 stars.
Miss Sporty have a fantastic range of colors, from electric blue to sunset peach.
I am obsessed with the pinks, there are coral pinks, florescent pinks and baby pinks ( lots more pinks as well).
The colors look really bright and bold when put together. I tried putting on dark blue with light blue at the end of my nails. they looked fantastic.
The brush is average nothing special, easy to apply also very neat.
I always put two or three coats on because it is thin but quick drying.
It does chip over time but nail polish is not made to last.
They are cheap and easy to find in beauty stores.
Nice unique shape of bottle.
probably the easiest nail polish to remove.
I would highly recommend this nail polish to anyone who wants outstanding colors, cheap and easy to use. Perfect for a night out or a one day/night thing. have fun using this nail polish.
I really love this and i hope you love it too. Your missing out if you haven't tried it, go out now and buy it!
Small bottle, but great price. Excellent brush which covers your nails smoothly and without any 'clumps'. The coverage is flawless even with one coat. Extremely quick drying - great when you don't have much time. Not sure of the colour, but it is a beautiful dusky pink violet. Can honestly say this is one of the best - if not the best buy I have ever had in nail polish. Looking forward to trying other colours in the range - please can we have more?!
I have the most awful habit in the world I bite my nails I have tried everything to curb the habit to no avail. I do occasionally wear false nails other wise I use nail polish to paint my toe nails.
My best mate Melanie was wearing the colour that I'm going to talk about in this review, I instantly fell in love with the colour!
Miss Sporty is a brand that has been around for a good few years now. I have occasionally bought their lip sticks in the past and have always found them to be of very good quality to be honest.
I bought this nail polish from my local boots in Weston Super Mare, costing me only £1.99. An absolute bargain in my opinion. They have a variety of colours to chose from I was drawn to this colour as I love red and think it looks lovely with a black dress on a night out. This colour is red wine, and has a lovely shimmer to it. I have been going out socialising a lot lately and knew I had to update my collection of polishes as my others looked like they'd gone off.
This polish is formulated for shininess for us ladies who love night clubbing!
It is Miss Sporty red wine maxi brush with a long lasting maxi brush that lasts up to ten days.
It comes in a glass pot with a plastic black lid that contains the brush. The contents of the polish is 7ml.
This has got to be one of the best nail polishes that I have ever purchased. I firstly apply clear nail vanish to prevent nail staining from the colour, then I apply three strokes of the red polish to each nail. I leave it to dry for five minutes before reapplying the next coat of polish. Then I sometimes finish off with clear polish or just just leave the red as the top coat.
I applied the polish to my toe nails eight days ago, they still look like they did when I first polished them it really does last a long time as it states on the information given.
I will be buying more of this fantastic polish in their other colours when I next visit boots.
MY EXPERIENCE AND OPINION
Coming from a family full of girls we are always buying , trying and swapping each others nail polishes. Thats how i first came across this brand. It has a nice round ball like shape to the bottle and the wand is a good length with a clear and sometimes white brush on the end. The brush is amazing..... it is flat and has a rounded bottom to fit cuticles, so it makes for very easy apllication. I love the brush, it makes it easy and takes no time at all to paint all my nails. It has a good consistency and the colours are strong without having to paint coat after coat after coat on to get the colour. I find the max of 2 coats is fine and from my experience it doesnt chip or peel off and it is easily removed with nail varnish remover. They also dry super quick which is great as im always in a rush and dont want them to smudge. The other amazing thing is the variety of colours.... my god, i have about 20 now in my own collection, including the special limited addition glitters and effects. The other great thing is that they are so cheap £1.99 in most stores and sometimes cheaper on a deal.
The only bad thing i find is that they do 'dry out' and get pretty thick after around 9 months, which makes them difficult to use.
Would recommend to all and i will buy over and over and over again. Great colours and easy apllication with no chips. Just brill.
Thanks for reading and rating :)
When it comes to nail polishes I have rather a large collection it has to be said. Biting my finger nails badly I only have my toe nails to paint which I do regularly.
I bought this is in my local Boots store and it set me back just £1.99 and I didn't hesitate in purchasing it as last year (2012) as I had bought rather alot of Miss Sporty products and really liked the economy range and I wanted a nice bright colour to use over the festive period.
There were only 7 colours in Boots for me to choose from and purchase, a green a purple and blue I remember seeing and I went for a shade called Hill Pop which is a bright purple colour, perfect for me as my favourite colour is purple!
This comes in a see through glass pot in a round shape with a white plastic handle which twists on and off with ease and houses the long wand with a long black brush of quality hairs within that. On the top of it we are told what it is and the size is stated which is 7ml and that once opened it lasts and stays fresh to use for a whopping 30 months and contact details for the manufacturer are given. Nowhere on my bottle in the colour stated mind you for some reason but I know what I have as I can see it through the glass pot of course!
The Nail Polish:
These colours are meant to bright, suitable for evening wear and mine certainly is that. Its also meant to be a rapid dryer....again it really is and I find a minute or so after applying it I am good to go and with a colour such as this I always use a base coat though I can get away with just one coat of this on my nails as it goes on so evenly though if I have the time I will use two coats just to get a more intense colour going on.
Once applied, even with just one coat of this I found this to stay put on my toenails almost the week as promised, well it just fell short at 6 days wear which I still thought was extremely good before I noticed small chips appear though I had no colour fade with this one and it was simple enough to remove with a good nail polish remover and a bit of rubbing!
My colour was really rich and really well pigmented with a really fab shine and it stood out which was really what I wanted.
In conclusion this is really great buy for me. Sadly I can't get hold of the over 22 odd colours that are available from this range but I will certainly be buying a lot more of them as and when I can find them as I just think they are such amazing quality and so cheap and lasting so yes these come recommended from me!
Available from all good chemists and of course online!

This nail varnish caught my eye in boots because it's just so cheap and there was quite a good variety of colours and has the added bonus of being quick drying.
The product comes in a clear bottle so you can clearly see the colour of the nail varnish and it stands up on a square sturdy base. The lid is white plastic with a barcode sticker stuck on it and the miss sporty name and "clubbing colours quick dry" is also stuck on but the writing is in white and silver and is actually a but hard to read. To be honest I think it looks quite tacky as that label will soon start to peal at the edges and look scruffy. The brush attached to the lid is securely attached with well made bristles. The brush itself is bigger than all nail brushes I've used previously and only requires one stroke to cover all the nail which adds to the idea you'd be able to use this nail varnish if you were in a rush before going out. Personally I like the big brush but I understand it may be awkward for some people to use.
Looking on the miss sporty website it appears in this range of nail varnish's that they do there's 21 different colours to choose from which sounds like a lot but I think there are some key colours missing for example there isn't a black, white or deep red colour to name a few. The colour I chose was called china glaze which actually is a very deceptive name for what is essentially a light turquoise colour. It does irritate me when the colour doesn't have an appropriate name I don't understand the need for confusing names whats wrong with turquoise?? The product is also (like much of the miss sporty brand) aimed at young people and thinking about it this may be why it's so cheap and explain the lack of some colours in this range.
...My Experience Using This Product...
I found applying this product the varnish went on smoothly and covered the nail well. The thick brush however was too wide for my smallest finger nail and as a result I had to dig out the nail varnish to remove the polish on my skin which did in fact come off fairly esily. I applied 2 coats and the colour came out vivid and strong with a shiny almost metalic finish. The nail varnish did indeed dry quickly it was touch dry within a few minutes and completely dry after approximately 10 minutes. It did seem chip resistant for a few days but I found the nail varnish starts to peel not long after this.
I didn't use a base coat or a top coat and found upon removing the nail varnish my nails were left with an ever so slightly green tinge which same off through general hand washing after a few days. When removing the nail varnish I found it did come off very easily in no time at all.
...Value For Money...
You get 7ml of varnish for £1.99 which I think is exceptional value for money for a product which although not perfect is still pretty good.
I really wanted a bright coral shade on my nails, but I didn't want to spend too much money. Having looked at all the make-up stands and the prices they were charging for shades of coral I wasn't keen on, I opted for Miss Sporty. The Number 12 shade from their Clubbing Colours range was £1.99 for 7ml from Superdrug. Clubbing Colours, as the name suggests, are bright colours which will not look out of place on a night out. My shade (12) however, is quite versatile and is suited for both day and night wear.
The bottle does look like it is from a budget range, but that is too be expected really. The brush is black and is quite broad in comparison to other nail varnishes, like Nails Inc or OPI, but this doesn't seem to affect application of the varnish.
The varnish itself is perhaps slightly watery in comparison to most brands, but at least it is not thick and gloopy! The brush needs to wiped on the side of the bottle prior to applying, to remove excess varnish. When applied to the nail, it glides smoothly without dragging, applying the colour evenly over the nail.
The varnish dries at a reasonable speed. I waited around 5 minutes after my first coat to apply a second coat - at which point the first coat had dried. The second coat also glides on with little effort and dries within minutes. I would say that these colours definitely need at least 2 coats to make them uniform - 3 coats may also be needed, as on some of my nails, the colour wasn't completely even and opaque.
The overall look and colour of my nails after applying this was pleasing. The colour looked great and it looked smooth with shine, even when I have not used a separate top coat. Unfortunately, this look is a little short-lived, as the varnish does start to chip around 1-2 days after applying.
The varnish is easily removed with acetone-free remover. A 7ml bottle will probably last around 6 manicures, if 2-3 are to be applied to each nail.
Overall, this is a budget nail varnish which is a little thin and doesn't have great staying power. Despite this, the colour is great and when on the nails, you wouldn't be able to tell that it is a cheap varnish. The product is better suited to be worn specifically for a night out or day out and not for a long term basis as it just won't last.
For £1.99, I can't really complain! 4 stars
I am nearly at the end of my vast nail polish collection, which I am determind to run out before I buy any more. Most recently I have been using up some Miss Sporty Nail Polish, which costs just £1.99 at Superdrug and Boots.
The particular colours that I have come from the Clubbing Colours Collection. This is a selection of mostly bright, even neon, shades. There are a few softer colours, but if you want a big choice of natural looking options, this isn't the most obvious range to choose from. I think that Miss Sporty target their marketing at young women, who will like the low prices, but the nail varnish will obviously appeal to anyone looking for an interesting selection of colours. I have been buying from them for years, and I am not a teenager any more!
As well as bright colours, the Clubbing Colours range also includes some sparkly and metallic finishes. Most are simply glossy though. I currently have "Green Lemon" which is a pastel mint green, and "Sky Bath", a pale blue.
WHAT IT CLAIMS TO DO
Miss Sporty say that these polishes offer "dramatic colour and shine", with perfect no-streak coverage. They also say that they are quick drying. They are not tested on animals.
The Clubbing Colours come in a relatively small 7ml bottle. but as this is refLected in the price I don't mind. In fact, I prefer to buy smaller amounts of a large number of shades so I can change the look of my nails often. This is especially true if I am buying polish in a more unusual colour, such as those offered by Miss Sporty. Sometimes a colour that looks great in the bottle doesn't look so good on the nails! These bottles are clear, which does help you to get a good idea of the colour. All of the printed information, brief as it is, is on a sticker on the lid. The most important info is probably that the polish is supposed to be used within 30 months of opening. I doubt anyone would have much difficulty doing that, considering the size of the bottle.
The brush is one of the widest I have used. It is also quite short, as well as flat. It does reach well down into the actual bottle though, so it doesn't cause difficulties when you are nearing the end of the polish. I like the fact that it's width allows you to cover the nail with a minimum amount of strokes, which makes application quicker and generally neater too. The brush is perfectly good quality in general, despite the low price.
As for the polish itself, it seems of an average consistency on the brush. On the nail, I find that it does not apply very evenly. I definitely do not agree with the idea that this polish gives a streak free finish. I often have to correct a nail because I am not happy with this. Some colours seem worse than others, and giving the bottle a more than averagely vigorous shake at the start does help a little. It always takes more than one coat to get a good depth of colour. In fact, three would be the average. This means that it takes longer to finish your nails than you would expect given that it is a quick drying polish. I certainly do agree that it is quick drying - it is touch dry in just a couple of minutes.
Once several coats have dried, the finish looks smoother and the colour has built up to a good level. It is glossy but I wouldn't call it a high shine effect. As regard how long it lasts, I have to re-apply every couple of days. It does seem to chip easily, along the nail tip as well as on the body of the nail. It is cheap, so I don't mind the repeated application, and to be fair to Miss Sporty, they don't claim this is an especially lasting polish. I am happy with the result whille it lasts, because the colours are nice, once you have corrected any initial uneveness. It also removes easily.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS POLISH?
The shades that I have feel fresh and summery, and are perfect colours for sandal weather. That is always supposing that you are happy to re-apply often. The colours in the range may not suit everyone, but they offer an imaginative selection at a low price. So if you do want to experiment with some bright colours, this is an ideal way to do that. If you want to buy the polish because it is quick drying, bear in mind you will need to apply several coats. Judging them on their price, I would say the quality is satisfactory. However, I do think that the finish is inferior to that of Superdrug's MUA polish which costs just £1. So I will continue to buy Miss Sporty for the unusual colour options, but when I want a longer lasting polish I will go elsewhere.

Miss sporty clubbing colours
Just before we go on holiday I always tend to stock up on nail polishes and this year was no exception. The only difference was that this time Little Miss was wanting some new colours as well. Given that she tends to like trying out different colours, I decided to have a look round for a selection of colours which were young and which wouldn't break the bank. At £1.99 for a bottle, and with a 3 for 2 offer on a Boots, these polishes fit the bill.
The clubbing range promises to be quick drying- ideal for someone who can't sit still while their nails dry and they are available in lots of colours from brights to quite muted and including names such as Pop fiction, Blueberry and Orange Crush. All of the range can be found on the miss sporty website, www.misssporty.co.uk, and there really is s colour for every occasion.
The bottles are slightly smaller than is usual with most of the nail polishes I tend to buy, which again was ideal; they have a high chance of drying out or being discarded for a newer model!
The brush is nice and big and makes for really easy application, and when removed from the bottle, it is loaded with enough of the polish to cover the nails but not so much that the polish drips all over the place. We bought two pinky colours- It's not my name and Vintage and a Turquoise colour, and when applied, even with the first coat, they did go on true to the colour we could see through the bottle. However, when the first coat dried, it was clear that a second coat was going to be needed to even out the colour and stop any patchiness. This, however, I find to be the case even with more expensive products.
WHAT DID WE THINK?
The polish does last for a couple of days without chipping but then the ends of the nails definitely go and it has to come off- I really dislike chipped nail polish.
However, I would recommend the polish to anyone who likes to change their colour frequently. It is easy to apply, the colours are fun and given the price, it's great value. We also found that it was easy to remove with normal nail varnish remover and thankfully didn't cause discolouration of the nails.
Great for holidays or for a night out when you want your polish to match your outfit.
Thanks for reading
Miss Sporty aims to be a fun and friendly brand that produces bright and eye catching products, at the cheapest possible price. It is not a brand that I had ever really heard of or considered using before. This year, I wanted a gold nail varnish to match a particular outfit that I had for my holiday and as I browsed the shelves of Superdrug, Miss Sporty nail varnish was the closest to being the colour that I needed. Against my better judgement, I bought the cheaply priced product expecting it to chip, fade and smudge immediately.
What does the product do?
Although Miss Sporty produces a variety of different nail varnishes, the gold one that I wanted was part of the Clubbing Colours range. The range promises to coat your nails with a dramatic colour and a glossy shine. It claims that it will give you a complete coverage without any streaks or smudging due to its quick drying properties.
The Clubbing Colours range is divided into two different groups which are the Metallics and the Neons. The shade I chose came under the metallic heading and is called Gold Background and this is joined by the silver Metallic Crystal, Purple Rain and Perfect Pink. If you are looking for a bright, neon colour you have a lot more colours to choose from including Taxi, Tangerine Fatal, Dazzle, Paparazzi, Fatal Plum and Hip Pop.
Packaging and Price
The product comes in a little glass bottle which is fairly heavy for its size. The body of the bottle is transparent and you can clearly see the colour inside so you know exactly what you are getting. The bottle has a white screw top lid and, as with all nail varnishes, the brush is attached within the lid. Around the lid there is a sticker displaying the name of the product but this comes unstuck fairly easily.
The nail varnish is one of the cheapest around and this made me question its quality. I bought mine for just £1.99 and for that money I got 7ml of nail varnish. Mine was purchased from Superdrug but the product will also be available in Boots, large supermarkets and also many online websites although I don't think the price will vary much as it is already fairly cheap.
At first, despite the product being cheap, I was put off by the size of the bottle. You only get a fairly small amount of nail varnish but this has its advantages. Most nail varnishes that I purchase become clumpy and don't work properly after some time so I end up throwing it away before the bottles empty so this is a more practical amount of varnish. The fact that it contains 75ml of varnish also means that I was able to carry it in my hand luggage when travelling on an aeroplane which allowed me to keep my suitcase weight down.
The colour of my nail varnish is absolutely gorgeous in the bottle. It is a really vibrant golden shade which is metallic and shiny. There are also tiny delicate shimmers of glitter packed tightly throughout the entire varnish and I was hoping that this would be the exact colour that I would get on my nails. The first coat I applied almost gave complete coverage, but through it you could still see my nails slightly but a second coat gives you the exact same shade as the varnish in the bottle which I was over the moon about.
The coverage is flawless and thick. The varnish dries within a few minutes when you have applied two coats so providing you sit still for a short amount of time, you won't experience any smudging. If you're happy with just the one coat, it will dry in less than one minute. The brush is of a good quality and allows you to apply the varnish easily and precisely, without leaving any streak. The varnish smells just as strongly as any other brands does so make sure you don't use it in an enclosed space or you'll get a headache.
The nail varnish itself is incredibly long lasting. After spending a long weekend on holidays, being on the beach, swimming in the sea and carrying my luggage, my nails were as perfect when I got home as when I left. There were no chips at all and the colour hadn't faded which was much more impressive than some of the Rimmel and No7 varnishes that I have tried. Despite this fantastic staying power, the varnish was still easily removed when it was time to use a more subtle colour after arriving home.
All in all, this varnish gave a gorgeous long lasting and shiny colour that was chip resistant and easily applied. Even without the price in consideration, I would have been more than happy with this product but the fact that I got it for just £1.99 is even more impressive. I fully intend to purchase a few more of the colours, especially the metallic ones as they are so cute! This is a bargain price for a high quality product.
I bought this in my local Boots around 6 months ago now, purely because it seemed like a real bargain buy at just £1.99 per 7ml bottle.
There's a range of shades to choose from, such as: green, purple, pink, orange, etc. I own the pink which is a lovely shade of neon flamingo pink.
The design of the bottle is very 'samey' - it's not in a fancy shape nor does it have fancy packaging but what do you expect for £1.99!? The bottle is presumeably glass or hard plastic, and is transparent so the colour is visible which is handy while in the shop and choosing which shade to buy.
The lid is white, most nail varnishes have black lids which i personally find more classy/discreet but it didn't stop me buying this purely because of the lid colour! The lid has a design on it which is best described as black 'lines' - i'm unsure of how to describe it but if you google it you will see what i mean, over the top of the design it reads 'Miss Sporty clubbing colours 1 minute quick dry' so it is obvious what the product is and seperates it from my other nail varnishes rather than blending in and making it difficult to find (I own about 100 nail varnishes lol).
The lid screws off and like all nailvarnishes has an applicating brush. It's a decent width so spreads the varnish evenly. I find only 1 coat is neccessary as the varnish is thick in consistency but spreads well, and is bold in colour - it's not the type of nail varnish which has a sheer tint. It's glossy with a nice metallic look to it and looks great. Even with one coat the finish looks high quality and is eye catching. The thickness of it is an advantage and disadvantage - an advantage because it spreads well but a disadvantage because it can clump up if more than 2 coats are applied which means starting over again and with the time it takes to remove it can be a nightmare if rushing!
The nail varnish is dry within 40-60 seconds and it lasts for around 3-5 days before chipping - not that long compared to my other, more expensive varnishes but for the price paid i feel 3-5 days is more than reasonable. It comes off with nail polish remover but it takes a while to get it completely off, it's quite stubborn which is a downside to it - it takes me personally 4/5 pads drenched in the polish remover before it is completely gone.
I have had this nail varnish for around the 6 month mark and i've used it around 5/6 times, mainly for when i want a bold, eye catching varnish - this isn't a subtle varnish in my opinion, and isn't ideal for daily use because of the shiney/glossy finish and non-neutral colours. Even after a small amount of use the brush has unfortunetly become slightly mishapen and the liquid looks to of clumped up but to be fair it is half a year old, so i think it's time to buy a new bottle!
Overall a cheap nail varnish which creates a nice, bold look, but it's not without its downsides.
I bought one of these little nail polishes a few years ago from Superdrug, it cost me about £2 which is quite reasonable for a nail polish. In Boots it is also £1.99. I think this is sold in some supermarkets as well but I'm not sure so don't quote me on that one.
I liked the name 'clubbing colours' as I was going clubbing all the time at the time when I bought this so I thought I could wear this to go clubbing! At the time I was a bit younger and clubbing seemed really cool to me back then, so the idea of nail colour worn for clubbing seemed cool as well lol.
The bottle this comes in is actually very small even though it is made to look bigger than it is by having a tall white plastic lid and the bottom glass slightly thicker than the rest of the glass. It is always the same though with nail polish bottles, they always try to make the bottle look bigger. The lid is white on this bottle, I have to say the packaging this comes in is very boring and average and really nothing special. But it is a low priced product so I suppose you can't really expect too much for such a small price.
There are quite a few colours available, they aren't anything amazing or cool or anything though. Yes you can wear them to go to clubs but they are fine for wearing in the day as well.
The colour I have is bright blue and it is called 'blue berry'. It is an OK shade it is not one of my favourites though out of all the nail polishes I have.
This takes ages to dry and needs a couple of coats to make the colour really stand out and look how it should according to the colour in the bottle. It also chips really quickly and a couple of days after applying looks awful because it is so badly chipped, and you have to reapply it or just get rid of it. So it really is cheap quality.
If you really liked one of the colours and only wanted your nails that colour for a short period of time, like say for example, one night, then this would probably suit you fine as you don't have to pay that much for it. However I just don't think this is worth wasting money on as I thought it was rubbish I have to say and I probably would not recommend it.
I love painting my nails regularly, but find it annoying when you do them last minute and always garurentee there going to smudge. So I opted for this as it does say quick dry, which is perfect for what I need as I don't have much time to sit down and wait for my nails to dry!
I bought this from Boots for £1.99 now this is what I call a bargain! Its a fantastic price and the product lasts me absolutely ages. So great value for money. I went for the colour PAPARAZZI which is like a deep purple/pink colour. Its absolutely gorgeous. It comes in a glass see through bottle (which is great as you can see the colour inside) with a white plastic lid, giving you a little information about the product.
What I love about this product is that it so easy and quick to use. The brush is a perfect size and you can easily get great coverage for each nail in 3/4 strokes and better yet you only need one coat, as the coverage of this is fantastic! You get straight to the depth of the colour, without having to keep re applying. I love this colour as it just looks gorgeous and makes my nails really stand out! Also it really does live up to its name, my nails are dry in about 1-2 minutes which is excellent, as other nail polish I use can take up to as much as half an hour to be perfectly dry, without having to worry about smudging.
The only downside to this is that it does chip only after a couple of days, which isn't that bad as other ones I have used chip within one day. As the nail polish is really quick drying you could easily just apply over the top and not have to worry about colour differences!
Overall a fantastic product, that dries quickly and gives great depth of colour effortlessly!
I never used to wear nail varnish as a teenager. I think the main reason was that at school it wasn't allowed (and if you wore it they would send you to the headmasters office to take it off), and also I had a waitressing job and so you couldn't wear nail varnish there either.
However, last Autumn I had a wedding. I had a green monsoon dress, and my nails were long at the time and so as I was going for the 'glam look' I wanted to do my nails, but wasn't sure what colour to go for. The shop assistant told me that silver would go well with the dress, so off to Boots I went.
As I had just spent £150 (!!) in Monsoon, I was left a bit skint, and was looking for the cheapest nail varnish available. I am quite a fan of the Miss Sporty range as I think that they are good value for money. Browsing the nail polish, I came across this 'Quick Dry' silver nail polish. I bought it for around £1.99 which I think is great value for money.
The bottle itself is glass (so that you can see the silver polish through it). There is a long white lid (containing the brush).
The nail polish is very easy to apply. I like the fact that the brush handle (the lid) is quite long, as it means that you have a better grip and so you have more control over the brush when you are applying the nail polish. There is nothing worse than a tiny brush which you usually get with nail polishes that are free in magzines!
The polish is quite runny but not to thick either, which is good. It takes about ten minutes to dry (so a bit faster than usual nail polishes!)
I love the colour of this nail polish as it looks quite glamorous. I usually wear it when my nails are long and they look really glamorous. Although, at the moment I have short nails, and my nails look really girlie which is nice.
The only thing I find with this nail varnish is that it chips very easily. Take last Saturday night for example. I applied the nail varnish, within an hour it had chipped, and I hadn't really done anything 'major' that would cause damage to my nails. However, even though it chips quite easily, it does last a while (even if it chipping away bit by bit). I can still have 'bits' of it still left on my nails after a couple of weeks; I either tend to remove it, or apply more nail varnish.
If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful nail varnish, then I would recommend this nail varnish for you. It's great for a night out!
Thanks for reading!
