Inexpensive Beauty Find: Miss Sporty Metal Flip Nail Polish Duochromes

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 19 - 2012

I found these Miss Sporty Metal Flip Nail Polish Duochromes in my local Boots store last week, they sure are pretty – and at £1.99 a-piece (aditionally on a buy-one-get-another-half-price offer), they’re also a flippin’ steal.  I can’t remember the last time I bought anything from Miss Sporty, infact, I thought you could only buy the brand in Superdrug?

Anyway… I’m pleased I had some time to kill for a proper “browse”, the kind of luxury I haven’t had in a while.

030 Aurora Borealis (turquoise/lilac combination)

040 Fiery Blaze (purple/green/brown combination)

The Miss Sporty Metal Flip polishes aren’t the most groundbreaking duochromes in the world, simply because the colour combinations have been done many times over (don’t make me dig out my dupes!).  However, the formulas are really nicely done and each was opaque in two/three coats max.  Throw in a sub £2 price tags and these are such pretty little treats, thoroughly worthy of making it into your shopping basket.

Have you picked up any of these on your high street jaunts yet?  Which one is your favourite and will you be indulging?

    Beetle Wings looks beautiful and the less dupe-able of the three, want! Haha

    nice find, I don’t think I’ve ever bought anything from this brand but these polishes are lovely.

  4. Cali says:

    Oooh, these are lovely and bargaintastic. I’ve had some Miss Sporty before and they were all good. Nice find!

  5. I’ve been urmming over these for a while, they’re don’t look as bad as I orginally thought. Might have to grab one quick now! x

  6. Julianne says:

    :O I must buy them all! Beetle Wings probably for my sister rather than for myself, but the other two are mine mine mine!

  7. Sophie says:

    Wow. NEED to check these out!

  8. Marie says:

    I have these, bought them on a 3 for 2 at Boots a few weeks back. The brushes are so good for the price too, wide and flat, not horrible skinny things you usually get at this kind of price. The “Goth me up” smokey topcoat is fun to play with too :)

  9. Ooh, I love Fiery Blaze! All three are so pretty.

    Hey
    I absolutely love nail polish. I have my own little collection. However i don’t have these types of nail polish. Fiery blaze I like the most, it has a great variation of colors, but actually all three polishes are beautiful. I hope I can find them in Belgium (I live there)as well (at the same cheap price). But I haven’t actually heared of that brand before. Ohh well, fingers crossed.

  12. wow those are beautiful duochromes!

  13. Sydney says:

    Loving the bottom two – not so keen on the first.
    I am a big fan of their nail varnishes, got quite a few as they’re super cheap and actually pretty good quality.

  14. […] guys seemed to be quite taken with the trio of duochrome polishes I blogged about last week, so when I was in London, I picked up three of the Miss Sporty Metal Flip Duochromes to give […]
