NOTD: Sportsgirl Lavender Fields

I've been obsessed with purple lately so I decided to paint my nails a light pastel-ish purple. This is my first time using the nail polish by Sportsgirl (originally known for clothes, not beauty products), but I have heard many good things about their polishes. 



They have a very good selection of colours, but I decided to purchase the pastel purple as pastel colours are 'in trend' right now. Also because I actually don't have any pastel nail polishes! The consistency is quite well, not too runny or gloggy. I did have to use two coats to achieve this colour, but now that I look at my nails in the sun (I painted my nails at night, with artificial lighting) I can kind of see my nails peaking through the polish, which is a shame. So, I should've used 3 instead of 2 coats.

So far, this nail polish has been good, but let's see how well it lasts after a day of work, haha! Let me know in a comment what are your favourite pastel nail polishes so I can purchase some good ones!

  12. To answer you question (you left on my blog) yes :) and one of my favorite pastel polishes is "Refresh-mint" by China Glaze. I'm not sure if you can still buy it in stores but I'm sure you can on Ebay! :)

  20. the purple looks great on you! I bought the gold glitter one a while back but the consistency was terrible; ended up with thick layers of clear polish and minimal gold specks :(
