This is the post where I will show all of the polishes that I didn’t know how to categorize. Here you will see all the pinkish purples and denim blues and one or two true blue polishes. Pinkish purples don’t really belong with the pinks because there they look too purple. When put with the purples they look pink. Same with the denim blues: they fit neither with blues nor with purples. So they get their own category here. I have also included the berry polishes here because there are only three and they don’t really belong in with the pinks either.
There are eleven polishes that I am going to go through today. Four of them are in the pinkish purple range, three in the berry family, two or three in the denim blue category and one true blue shade. Here they are:
Let’s start with the pinkish purples and then move on to the berries and finally to the blues and denim blues.
These are three of the four pinkish purple polishes I have. Why I didn’t take a picture with all four, I’ll never know… The fourth one will be in with the berries.
The first polish on the left is Essie’s Splash of Grenadine and it was one of the first Essie nail polishes that I bought when Essie became readily available here. This was totally up my alley back then but I have moved away from the pinks and pinkish purples a bit, so this is not a favorite anymore but I am not able to get rid of it anyway. So it will stay for now.
I am getting rid of Color Club’s Sweetpea, though, because it is very similar to the Maybelline’s Pink Innocence that is pictured next to it. Sweetpea is more purple whereas Pink Innocence is more pink and I prefer the more pink version.
When you look at Essie Madison Ave-Hue in the bottle it definitely has some purple aspects to it but on the nail it looks pretty much just pink. It has some silver shimmer in it which shows up on the nail a bit and it makes the polish stand out from the rest of these pinkish purples. This may be on the chopping block later if I don’t wear it enough since I don’t wear pink very often on my finger nails. I do like pink on my toes so it may stay for that purpose.
Moving on to the berry polishes. I have three of them and that may be too much since I don’t really wear berry colors anymore either. Out of Essie’s Foot Loose, Jamaica Me Crazy and OPI’s Dim Sum Plum I’m getting rid of Essie’s Foot Loose because it was never my favorite, the two others were at some point favorites. Foot Loose also has a thin brush which is a tad bit difficult to work with.
OPI Kiss Me at Midnight is the only true blue polish I have. I don’t normally like blue on my nails but Kiss Me at Midnight I like perhaps because of the silver glitter pieces it has. It is also a textured polish. I have a feeling that I will grow out of the textured trend soon so I may have to use up this and all of my other textured polishes in the near future.
Essie’s Bikini so Teeny is impossible for me to categorize. When I look at it in the bottle I see some purple in it even though many describe it as a blue polish. This also has silver shimmer in it but with this polish it does not show up on the nail.
The Body Shop Got the Blues and Depend 412 are basically the same color except the Depend polish is a tad darker. I can’t decide which polish to keep and which to get rid of, so I’m keeping them both for now.
So that’s all for now! Hope you enjoyed reading this!
