Mermaid nails: Sportsgirl Nail It nailpolish in Glitter Envy

July 1, 2013

I was at Sportsgirl last week buying some stockings, and the lady at the counter had the most amazing nails, so I ran back to the nail polish section to pick up the polish she was wearing. This nail polish is called Glitter Envy and it is a green tinted nail polish that is jam packed with emerald green glitter. There is also a pink version that I might just have to pick up too. All Sportsgirl nailpolishes cost $8.95.

This is three coats of the polish, you really only need two coats to get a nice full covering of glitter if you are careful and apply it really evenly. I went for a third coat for these photos because I applied two coats of this in a hurry before work and there were some patches that weren't completely covered with glitter.

The above photos make this look like a light blue shade, but its more of a dark emerald that is quite hard to capture on my normal camera, so I decided to take some photos on my phone as well, which gives a more accurate representation of the colour... but it still doesn't capture it perfectly.

Even though this is a glitter polish, from afar your nails look like they have emerald foil on them. This is an amazing nail polish, and even though it does chip after a day or two (if you don't wear a top coat), it is worth it! I'm not going to lie, this is a jerk to remove... and you will end up looking like a glitter bomb has exploded in your hands, but once again, it's worth it! I feel like I have mermaid fingers when I wear this, and I want to get the pink one so I can have princess nails too :P

I have had so many people comment on my nails when I wear this, it's definitely a conversation starter!

Keep an eye out for this polish featuring in my July favourites!
