I re-assessed my nail polish stash recently and it turns out that I have 10 lovely polishes that have yet to be used. Some of them are brand-spanking new and others have been collecting dust for a while longer (sorry little guys!). So, just as I set out on a lip colour purchase ban earlier this year, I want to put a temporary moratorium on buying new nail polishes, at least until I've given these 10 little beauties a proper go!
To motivate me with this aim, I thought I'd feature my 10 still unused polishes here, providing a little description of each! You can see that my taste for shades and finishes is eclectic and wide-reaching. A little of this, a little of that... shimmer, metallic, glitter, cream- you name it!
O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in Live and Let Die
Got this shade ages ago- not sure why I haven't taken it for a spin! It's a deep greenish black with golden and green shimmer. Edgy, but sophisticated!
Essie Nail Lacquer in Sexy Divide
Another deep, rich shade. This one is a dark violet shade with subtle shimmer. Sexy, indeed! Perfect for Fall, though I will definitely rock it this Spring :)
Revlon ColourStay Longwear Nail Enamel in Velvet Rope
This will be my first polish from the ColourStay range. Curious to see just how long-wearing it is! Velvet Rope is a classic crimson red with a shiny creme finish.
Essie Mirror Metallics Nail Lacquer in Nothing Else Metals
I got this lovely polish as a gift from my sister at Christmas (to see all of the pretty goodies she got me, click here) and I'm determined to use it soon! It's a ultra metallic silvery pink lilac that will be just perfect for Spring!
Anna Sui Nail Colour N #402
I picked this one up recently at Winners (to see the full haul click here)- being a lover of Anna Sui and adorable packaging in general, I was thrilled to find it! #402 is a rich wine shade with golden glitter. So unique!
Revlon Nail Art Mood Candy Nail Enamel in Orbit
The only reason I haven't used this beaut yet is because I've feared it's a bit over-the-top for work. I need to just get over that I paint my nails with this combo of a deep purple base and blue, green, and gold shimmery flakes! (you can see another shade of Moon Candy, Galactic, in action here!)
Essie Nail Lacquer in Smokin' Hot
I was inspired to pick this one up by Rebecca at more rebe (check out her blog, here), as it was touted as one of her recent favourites. It's a deep creamy taupe with a hint of plum. Super sultry!
Essie Mirror Metallics Nail Lacquer in Blue Rhapsody
Also part of the lovely Christmas gift from my sis, this polish is a metallic icy blue that both embodies the chill of Winter and the pastel hues of Spring. Perfect for this time of year!
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Midnight Glitz
This one was on clearance at Shoppers recently and I couldn't resist. It's designed primarily as a glitter topcoat, featuring black and gold sparkles of various shapes and sizes. Can't wait to give it a try!
Revlon Brilliant Strength Nail Enamel in Enrapture
I really like Revlon's Brilliant Strength line, and Enrapture is a shade that caught my attention right away. It's a warm coppery burgundy with a golden shimmery finish. It's unlike any other shade I've seen!
So there you go! It was good to finally organize my yet-unloved polishes. Am really dedicating myself to more manicures over the coming weeks. Which means more Nail of the Day posts will be on their way!
Which of these shades would you most like to see featured? Anyone else have a bit of a nail polish hoarding problem?
