After a few week’s break it’s time to introduce the next set of polishes in my collection. This time we are going to go through the neutrals. There are eight polishes that fit in this category and I got rid of two of them. I am on the fence about one of them but the rest I simply love so I’m not even contemplating on getting rid of those. These are the neutral nail polishes in my collection:
Now let’s take a closer look at the polishes.
Over half of this category consisted of Essie polishes and that would be fine if they were all different enough. Spaghetti Strap and Muchi Muchi were just too similar to keep both and at first I thought I would keep just one of them and had a hard time deciding which one to keep. In the end I decided to get rid of both, however, because of two reasons. One: I like polishes that are opaque and neither of these were. Two: I realized in the store that my polishes had lost their color because they should be light pink shades. My bottles didn’t have any pinkness to them at all.
Fiji and A Crewed Interest are among my favorite polishes and they are staying. A Crewed Interest starts to be a few years old so I may have to start using it more often to use it up before it goes bad.
Essie’s Eternal Optimist is a lovely darker neutral shade that I like to pair with Essie’s glitter polish A Cut Above. I hadn’t realized that these two nail polishes go together until I saw that they sell the polishes in a set during Christmas time. Rimmel’s Peachella is next to the Essie polish and I bought it to see if it would replace Essie’s A Crewed Interest once I have used it up, but it’s not a dupe because Peachella is darker than A Crewed Interest. I prefer the lighter version but the darker Peachella is not bad either. This is the polish I am on the fence about but I’m keeping it for now because I thought I would try and add some white polish in it to make it lighter and maybe get the color a bit more like A Crewed Interest.
Depend 347 is one of the polishes that was sent to me in a subscription box one time and this is the only one that I have kept because this is something that I actually like and wear. First I thought it would be one of those sheer pinks that hardly cover anything but it actually covers the nail pretty well. I’m glad this came in the box because I probably wouldn’t have bought it if it hadn’t.
The last polish to mention in this bunch is Mavala’s Sweet. This is a polish to be used in the spring and summer when you don’t have to use as much artificial lighting. This looks much better in daylight than indoors under artificial lights, in which it looks orange. And I don’t like orange nail polish.
So those were the neutral polishes in my collection. I will probably get another post out pretty soon so that I would finally finish this series.
So, see you soon!
