Happy New Year’s everyone! Since I’m visiting a couple friends in my wonderful college town today, I’ll have a couple outfit posts in order for the next week. I just didn’t have time to get one up before I left!
Since August, I’ve started collecting nail polish. The first color I purchased was a bright orange (OPI’s Hey, Y’all Come Back Ya Hear?) and since then I’ve managed to add many more polishes to my collection. The total as of now? Forty one.
I’ve managed to acquire a variety of shades, in all colors of the rainbow. Judging from the polishes I’ve purchased, I’m incredibly fond of glitter, reds, and pinks.
In the spirit of analyzing, I also grouped all my polishes by brand.
However, these polishes have confirmed what I know: I am a cheapskate. The majority of my collection (12 polishes) are Sinful Colors. On average, these polishes work just as well as the more expensive brands and retail at Rite Aid for around $2. Before for those days where you need a little pick me up.
8 polishes are China Glaze, none of which were purchased by me. The majority of the colors are red, including my all time favorite red: Red Velvet. I really don’t believe there is a red that can top this red. It is that gorgeous.
In third place are the OPI polishes, numbering 6 (one not pictured). The Konad Special Stamping Polishes, for which there are no cheaper alternatives, number 5. Then I’ve got 2 Nicole for OPI, 2 Revlon, and a random base coat and Seche Vita top coat.
It’s nice to know that I have colors in every shade of the rainbow, in case it should ever strike my mood. Though I have found that as much as I love yellow, I’m not really sure it’s flattering on fingernails. However, I love a good midnight blue.
Obviously, I’ll keep collecting polishes but it’s good to see where the gaps in my collection lie so I don’t purchase the same (or too similar) polishes.
Are there any colors you’re particularly drawn to?
