Sportsgirl – Popsicle nail lacquer

Sportsgirl - Popsicle

Sportsgirl – Popsicle

I hereby redub Sportsgirl’s Popsicle nail polish to Sportsgirl’s What A Huge Disappointment.

The colour is gorgeous. Gorgeous. It’s the perfect girly pink with just the right amount of blue pearly shimmer. It applied nicely and didn’t bubble or pull. But. But! It chipped like a fiend after two days and – here’s the kicker – it stained the ever-loving hell out of my nails. This ain’t my first time to the nail rodeo, so we’re talking mega staining through a generous coat of CND Toughen Up and China Glaze base coat.  This was weeks ago and I’m still equally impressed and horrified (and still lightly stained).

Sportsgirl nail polishes are AU$7.95 and available at all Sportsgirl clothing and accessory stores as well as sportsgirl.com.au. I’d normally say ‘happy polishing’ here, but in this case I think I’m going to go with ‘good luck’. Good luck.

  1. Been thinking of getting some Sportsgirl polishes, guess I won’t buy any now. :/

  2. Ooh, I have ogled Sportsgirl nail polishes before but never purchased any. But if its gonna chip like crazy then I aint gonna be buying any ;)

  3. I don’t know why I keep buying nail polish from Sportsgirl. I think because it’s so cheap, but you definately get what you pay for!

    I love this colour and have some gorgeous shades, but the quality is sh*t lol. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks so.

    And even though Sportsgirl is one of my favourite stores, I have sworn never to buy their accessories again, jewellery always turns green :(

    • Sportsgirl are my go-to for cheap’n’cheerful basics like singlet tops and I swear by their jeans, but I’m with you when it comes to accessories!
