I have realized while doing this challenge and trying all of my untrieds that I want my collection to contain more quality polishes rather than hundreds of okay polishes. My husband and I decided "quality over quantity" when it came to the decision of whether or not we wanted to have more kids. We have two awesome girls and we want to focus on bringing up two well rounded individuals rather than bringing more and more into the picture and not being able to provide the life that we dream about providing them. And...back to nail polish:) I have come to the conclusion that there is a reason I haven't tried certain polishes in my collection. I can just tell by looking that I won't be a fan. I know, every brand has their hits and misses, but running to Walgreens and buying 50 Sinful Colors just because they are ONLY 99 CENTS doesn't necessarily make my collection any better. Now that I have purchased some really unique indie polishes, I would rather have 5 of those rather than 50 Sinful Colors. And shopping the clearance section in Ulta...just because there is an OPI for $4.99, doesn't mean I have to get it when I have 5 other dupes of it at home. How about save all of those nickle and dime polishes for really cool, awesome unique polishes? I know many don't agree and that's okay...but I think I have hit a breaking point in my nail polish collecting. At one point, it must have been my goal to have as many polishes in my stash as possible....I think I've just changed my goal. My new goal is to have a large (yep still large) variety of unique and quality polishes that I adore.
I may just give away some of these polishes that I know I will never wear.
This brings me to my "L" in the Alphabet Challenge. This is Sinful Colors Let Me Go. Yes, in the bottle it looks pretty cool, but it's really not that cool on the nail. I layered it over a white and it just makes the white look pearlescent - none of the purple and pink tones that you see in the bottle show up (below). I'm thankful that I have this because it spoke to me....LET ME GO. And this I will do:)
I'm off to clean out my stash... Have a great weekend!
