Sportsgirl Bronze Nail It! NOTD

I should probably call this post NOTY (Nail of the Year), as this is the first time I wore nail polish in 2011 (apart from the clear coat I used when I got married in October).

With flash:

I am so not a nail polish person. I find salon manicures and pedicures too expensive, and my left hand's just not dexterous enough to work on my right hand and get a nice even coat of polish. I can't even get the hang of one coat, let alone two or three coats of polish. Never mind the base and top coats!

Still, I have a small nail polish collection and I've been hankering to use them for a while, because I'm not letting myself buy any more nail polish unless I use all of the ones I have at least once (I'm trying to do that with lipstick too but it's just so darned hard to not buy lipstick).

Without flash:

I must say, I love this nail polish!
- It's a metallic taupe shade rather than bronze.
- I like how it looks against my tanned skin.
- I only need to use one coat to get an opaque coverage.
- I've had this since 2007 and the consistency is still excellent.

I can’t wait to try out the red and blue shades that I have from the same line.


  1. I love nail polish but hate the upkeep. If you reapply your topcoat every day your mani/ pedi will last longer, which is a bit of a pain in itself, but at least you get to enjoy the colour. Plus, you don't need to be very precise with a clear topcoat :)

  2. @dempss01 Thanks for the tip! I will try that :)

  3. Sportsgirl are powerhouses. You should try their makeup - their glosses and eyeshadow particularly are really amazing!

  4. I am an eyeshadow addict like you, so I will give them a try!
