Nail Polish. Just. Nail Polish.

21 Jul

Some might say that I have an addictive personality. This is a lie, because if I did, I wouldn’t be able to control myself. I’ll have you know, that I only have 97 polishes, and that’s INCLUDING top/base coats!

I got super excited last night. I can’t be spending money on these things anymore–but my last true impulse purchase came in the mail. Three little Zoya beauties, by the names of Ivy, Cheryl, and… (Dramatic Pause)… Liberty! Yes, Liberty, the beautiful blue Pixie Dust shade that they recently did a promo on. Including shipping, I spent $15 on these three polishes–still a steal, considering, but also more than I’ve spent on polish since I dropped $62 for the China Glaze Hunger Games collection.

Usually, I get cheaper polishes. That’s what made the hobby so addicting in the first place; I could go and for $4 indulge myself in a new color. I know how much each of my brands usually cost, so it wouldn’t be hard to calculate how much my collection is worth–but I don’t want to, because it’d probably be several months worth of rent, and that just won’t fly, knowing that right now.

Nevertheless, I don’t regret a single one. They’re all lovely, and I don’t just use them on my nails. (Whaaat?)

When I finally get around to posting pictures somehow, I will have to add the pile of USB drives (another addiction) which are colored with nail polishes. I’ve got a neat one that I put a black crackle over yellow on, plus my Minecraft one, which has a personal favorite: Blue Funk (Studio M), which, when on, looks very Tardis-y.

As I was saying, though–I got super excited. Not just because my Zoya colors came in, but because I went ahead and purchased a few nail color swatch rings; the kind you look at color samples on by holding them against your nail? They were only $3, so I feel okay with that, especially since I’ve been trying to figure out how to organize and swatch everything forever. I’m still deciding how I’m going to do it–grouped by color or brand?? Maybe I’ll do them all twice and cross-reference the swatches with an index card catalog! (I have a problem…)
