Hello! Today I want to show you a beautiful Sportsgirl Nail It! polish that can be bought from Sportsgirl stores. It’s called Volcanic Sparks and it’s a gorgeous metallic red in a black base. In the light it really shimmers; this is definitely a nice polish to have in your collection.
This is three coats of Volcanic Sparks; as you can see it’s a very deep polish and I just felt so fancy wearing it. I also own Sportsgirl Nail It! Moonlight Sparks, which is the same metallic formula except gold in a black base. I used it in my first ever post here, but I intend on dedicating a post just to that one, too. Formula-wise this was perfect; I could have used two coats but I like to sometimes double make sure I put enough on!
Look at this outdoors shot – isn’t it incredible? The polish really came to life outside.
The night after I put the polish on I thought I should do some nail art on top. I spent a good 20 minutes looking at my polishes and then thinking I might use some cling wrap and sponge it onto my nails to get a speckled look. So I did that and you could hardly see the black polish! It mixed in with Volcanic Sparks far too well. So then I did the same thing with a deep red polish – and the same thing kept happening again! In the end I put all kinds of colours over the top of Volcanic Sparks and finally ended up with what you see below, which I was pretty happy with. I thought my nails looked like mini Persian carpets! What do you think?
I can’t remember all the polishes I used, but I can remember I used Australis Speck-tacular (a flakie) over the top of the colour and then over that, a matte top coat. This ‘look’ was a complete mistake but I couldn’t have been more happier with the result. I couldn’t stop staring at my nails all day, there was so much going on, especially thanks to the wonderful colours from the flakies!

So what do you think of my Persian carpet nails? And of Volcanic Sparks? I think for a complete accident I did a good job on the nail art. I wonder what I would of actually done if I had set out to do that kind of design – it would probably come out terrible! Ha ha. Thanks for reading!
