....too many colours for my fingers and toes!
With twenty-eight bottles bought this year,
(some might call this an addiction dear),
What can a girl do to help her decide?
Which she loves and which she can't abide?
I guess that's why it's come to this,
Swatching them all with a twist,
Well not all, I didn't use my toes,
But here's what I did, anything goes!
So....... although I do know what I am going to paint my nails tomorrow, I have bought the aforementioned twenty-eight bottles of polish so far this year (I know!) and with many untried bottles from last year as well, I decided I might as well be lazy and paint over my current manicure (black lace) with some of them to try out the colours.
Not exactly conventional for a blogger as most would swatch and show the colours to their full potential to fellow polish lovers. But I'm not normal (wohoo!) and I don't class myself as a normal nail polish blogger either. I never intended to swatch polishes for the perusal of others as plenty of others do it so much better (scrangie, vampy varnish, the polishaholic to name but a few) so my mission statement was to paint my nails every week, try out nail art ideas created by others or myself and show them here in case anyone was interested in taking a look.
So here is what I have been up to today:
Ignoring the shoddy painting, I tried out 16 polishes which are from left to right:
- Revlon "Royal" with Barry M "Gold Sparkle" crackle
- OPI "You Don't Know Jacques!" with China Glaze "Midtown Magic"
- Essie "Size Matters" with Nubar "Star Sparkles"
- Essie "Navigate Her" with Essie "Bobbing for Baubles"
- Nubar "Mod Aqua" with Essie "Go Overboard"
- Milani "Purple Gleam"
- Nubar "Hyacinth Sparkles"
- Nubar "Elegant Indigo"
- Nubar "Night Sparkles"
- Essie "Armed and Ready" with Color Club "Gingerbread"
