While I was packing up my room at the end of term, I took the opportunity to go through a lot of my stuff and get rid of a lot of things. One of the areas I tackled was my rather large nail polish collection!
I forced myself to be quite realistic and get rid of anything that I never wore or always took off straight after applying (does anyone else do this?). I admitted to myself that I don’t like bright pink nail polish, or glitter in a clear top coat, and despite the prettiness of the bottles, cleared those out too. Now all my polish fits in one box (with the exception of A England, which I will never cull, and which I’ll show my collection of another day).
Nails Inc polishes first! I have Tate (dark red), Glamour Glitter (gold glitter in clear polish), two bottles of Belgrave Place (Cadbury purple), Elizabeth Street (pale white-pink) and a Kensington Caviar base coat.
Tate and Glamour Glitter were free with Glamour, Belgrave Place and Elizabeth Street I picked up for something ridiculous like £7 altogether in TK Maxx, and the base coat came in a set with the Kensington Caviar top coat, but I finished that ages ago.
Next up, Jessica Nails, all of which I bought at Nirvana Spa. These have a tendency to look dark in the bottle, but very different on the nails!
I have Pumpkin Delight (copper foil), Gorgeous Garter Belt (peony-pink creme), Intrigue (lilac-nude), Platinum Wishes (green, blue and silver glitter), Notorious (shimmery dark brown-red) and Vampy Vixen (shimmery green-black).
From left to right: Blueberry Ice Cream, Navy, Watermelon, Aqua Glitter, Greenberry, Lemon Ice Cream, Papaya, Pomegranate, Raspberry.
So what do you think of my collection? Anything you’d like to see swatched?
