Nail Polish Collection 2018

Okay, since I have a Project Polish going on, I will only be doing my nail polish collection once this year. I will not be revisiting it, because the only polishes that I am currently using are the ones that are in my Project Polish which are 3 color polishes, one glitter, and one texture polish. I will be doing a new collection post next year, because I am hoping to use up a few of these items and it is good to keep stock of what you have every year no matter if it only has changed a little. Keeps me accountable.

These are my nail polish accessories. As you can see, I have a ton of crap from cuticle treatments, to fake nails, to a lot of nail art supplies. I want to use up some of these items if I feel so inclined. I am working on one cuticle cream right now and I am eyeing some of those nail stickers for when I get bored of my plain manicures.

One is my top coat and the other are little beads that you can put on your nails.

1 Polish

These are my oranges and the Julep is in my project pan this year. I don’t have a lot in this color family, but it looks very pretty on my nails. I would like to invest in more oranges, but I need to use up the majority of my collection first.

5 Polishes

I am a huge fan of glitter for a good reason: it is very shiny! I love a good glitter on the nails. I have the L’Oreal glitter in my project pan and if I finish it up, I want to move onto another. I honestly have too many glitters. I really only need one in my collection at a time. My ideal number of polishes is 10 in a perfect world, so I am going to try my very best to get it down to that number.

12 Polishes

For purple being my favorite color, I don’t have many of them at all. I find that I don’t like the color very much on my nails. I only need one purple in my collection.

14 Polishes

I have a fair amount of greens. If I have time this year, I want to try to work on the mint green one. I could probably use up the minis if I put them in a project pan next year. I try to do my nails and toes twice a month at the very last. I am actually due to be painting them tonight. I don’t see there being a problem getting this down to two greens.

19 Polishes

I am not a glitzy gold nail person, so I want to use up all of these polishes. The OPI is a crackle polish that looks great on top of blues and greens. I think I will throw it in a project next year to try to use it up. I don’t want to keep any of these in my final 10.

22 Polishes

These are my pinks. I am not really a pink nail girl, but I do enjoy it. I am trying to use up the sugar coat one this year. I would like to keep one pink in my collection.

26 Polishes

blue

I live for blue on my nails. It looks even better with a tan. I want to keep at least three blues in my collection. I love the Sinful Shine gel color blue and the Hard Candy. I love a lot of these blues. It won’t be hard for me to use up the blue Julep in my project pan this year. I have already used it three times this year. Out of my 5 polishes, if I could finish up three, I would be very happy. Finishing 5 might be a bit too much for me based on the last four months of progress. We will see.

34 Polishes

Red isn’t my color. I need to move these out by wearing them on my toes. I will pull one of them into a project next year to move it out of my collection. I don’t want to keep any of these in my final ten. You can bet I won’t be buying any red anymore unless it is a glitter. It is the only way that I kinda like it.

40 Polishes

Nudes are my final category and I would ideally want one or two of these. I have the lavender one in my project. A pink nude looks better on me than a bright pink in my opinion. I want to try to get some more nude/brown shades as well.

I have a total of 45 polishes that I want to cut down to 10. I have a lot of work ahead of me and I know that I don’t need to buy myself any in the mean time. I’m hoping to be down 5 next year and start out with 40. Next year, I am going to pull in a bunch of minis to try to use up. Maybe, I’ll choose like 10 polishes next year or start out with 5 minis and add more as I use them up. I have a newfound excitement for painting my nails. It gives me a nice creative outlet and a little bit of meditation time.

With Love,

Selena
