Sportsgirl Nail It! White Icing & studs nail art

*Nothing to disclose

Evening! Usually I like to bring you a nail polish and then add some nail art to it afterwards but as soon as I put Sportsgirl Nail It! White Icing on I knew I wanted to add an accent nail that captured the fluro colours. White Icing is a gorgeous polish from Sportsgirl that I picked up when I bought Chunky Fluro. This one has glitters in a creamy white base though, rather than it being just a glitter topper. Oh how I am loving glitters in white bases!

What you see below is two coats of White Icing with Seche and two coats of MODE Love Me with some neon studs I bought off eBay topped with Seche. I did a post about the studs here, if you want some more info. The formula of White Icing was pretty good. I was a bit nervous the second coat would cancel out the neon bits from the first coat, but it didn’t at all, it had a really good level of opacity (or transparency?). The neon glitters themselves are small pink hexes, medium green hexes and blue bars. Simple – yet effective – and looks like icing! I just realised I should do some cupcake nail art with it. Why didn’t I think of that earlier?

MODE Love Me was again difficult to photograph – in real life it looks much more fluro. Removal of White Icing was easy – I just used cotton buds for a few minutes, but if you used the foil method it would go faster.

I want to also apologise to my followers for not updating as regularly as I used to before my trip. I admit I have been totally lazy and I promise to kick things up a notch now that I’ve properly settled back into home and work life. My passion for all things nails is still going strong and I love hearing from you all so thanks for reading!

  1. awww the top coat is stunning

  2. I love this look and it’s one of my fave polishes from this range!

  3. Oh my god, I love this so much! The pink with neon studs is perfect, it really brightens it up. And I totally agree with you about glitters in a white base, probably because it really highlights the actual glitter. Was there any trouble with the bars poking through? That drives me bonkers.

  4. Your nails look great; love this look.

  5. I went and played with the tester of this today, can’t stand that smell! How soon does the smell go?

  6. White Icing is gorgeous, it looks so perfect for spring! and I love the accent idea 🙂
