My unloved ones

Standard

I was tagged by a sweet friend on Instagram to show polishes that I have in my stash that I never use, dislike but can’t get ride of or give away. They might come handy one day, you never know!?!! 😀

My unloved ones

In the photo:
♦ Zoya “Bijou”, such a lovely color but too sheer formula, I’ve never used it.
Delush Polish “Moves like Jagger”, a lovely blue glitter polish, but every time I try to do a mani with it the nails get too thick and I remove it. It seems I can’t get friends with it’s formula. The swatches I seen with it is lovely though … maybe some day…
♦ Kicks Nail Lacquer “Miss Preppy”, too dull blue, I’ve never used it.
♦ ESSIE “Eternal optimist” is just the wrong color for me, I’ve worn it once.
♦ Nails Inc “Chelsea square” is a weird glitter topper(?) I haven’t figured out how to wear it and I just don’t like the polish. I don’t know why I bought it.
♦ Isadora Wonder Nail “Peachy Colada” is a gorgeous peach shade but a bit wrong for my skin tone and I don’t like the formula, it applies streaky for some reason. Creme formulas from Isadora usually is very good so I don’t know what’s wrong with this one.
♦ Isadora Wonder Nail “City Khaki” is a polish I bough on sale and I don’t know why I bought it?!? When would a wear khaki colored nail polish
♦ OPI”Muppets world tour” is really pretty but somehow I never grab that bottle when I will use a glitter polish. I’ve used this polish for my mum’s nails though.

Do you have any unloved ones?

My year in polish etc., a summary of 2014, part 1

Standard

2014 was a very special year. It was the year I really got into nail polish for real. Most pictures in this post is from Instagram taken with my mobile so the quality isn’t that good but it’ll have to do anyway.

In January I bought my first polish from OPI(!) It was “Bubblebath”, a lovely nudish pink/beige.

In January I also took my first stumbling steps into to the world of Indie polish!! I bought my first bottles of indie polish from Edgy Polish. Thank you Katarina for creating such a lovely shop!

In February I bought more polish of course (both mainstream and indie brands) and I also tried some nail art techniques for the very first time.

In April our cat Morris moved in with us. He’s a Devon Rex and he’s such a little sweetheart. He loves to sleep in bed with me under the covers, he loves to sit on our shoulders and loves cuddles.

I love you Morris!
