The Collection: Miscellaneous

We have finally reached the second to last part of my collection posts! This will be the last part in the colored nail polish category as the last part will be of all of my base and top coats as well as treatments.

In this post I will be going through all of the polishes in my collection that don’t have enough in one color category to make up one big one. This includes whites, yellows, muds, stripers and rosy golds. In this post I will also be showing you my Konad stamping polishes.

Here are the polishes that I will talk about in this post:

IMG_0480 pieniAs with other categories I have done some decluttering to get rid of the ones I don’t use and also since taking the picture I have used up a polish that appears in the picture.

Let’s take a look at the muddy shades first.

P2 Rich & Royal, Essie Chinchilly

P2 Rich & Royal, Essie Chinchilly

I have owned P2′s Rich & Royal for many years, ever since my friend bought it for me in her trip to Germany. It was a color I was interested in because it was supposed to be a dupe for Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic that used to be hyped around Youtube. That line of polishes has been discontinued since then and no one ever talks about the polish anymore. When I first got the P2 polish I wasn’t sure I liked it but last winter I loved it when I wore it! I loved it so much I even bought another bottle of the same kind of shade, namely Essie’s Chinchilly. On the nail they look pretty much the same. I thought I would keep them both, however, as long as I will try to use up one of them. And as the P2 polish is the older one and I’ve already used more of it, I will try to use up that one. I will put it in my project as soon as I have used up one more bottle from the ones I already have in the project. As I said in my last post, one of my goals for August is to use up one bottle in the project. I am dying to use this already, because I have been seeing several people wearing these kinds of shades even in the summer, both on their fingers and their toes. I don’t think I have ever tried this shade on my toe nails so I am excited to try and see how I like it.

OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, Gina Tricot Sunny

OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana, Gina Tricot Sunny

I only have two yellows in my collection, or I should say ‘had’ because I got rid of OPI’s I Just Can’t Cope-acabana. I don’t wear yellow all that often and when I do, it’s pastel yellow that I reach for.

Sally Hansen White On, Essie Blanc, Natural 2 Way Art Pen

Sally Hansen White On, Essie Blanc, Naturel 2 Way Art Pen

Of the three polishes in this picture I have only one left. Sally Hansen’s White On I used up earlier this year and Naturel’s 2 Way Art Pen with silver glitter I sold because I don’t use striping polishes anymore. I had already sold all of my other polishes that had a thin brush for the same reason. Since using up the Sally Hansen white polish, I have bought a new and cheaper white polish to use on my swatch wheels. It is Essence’s Wild White Ways.

Natural Code by Lumene Dark Sparkle and Rosy Gold, Mac Soiree

Natural Code by Lumene Dark Sparkle and Rosy Gold, Mac Soiree

These are my Christmas and New Year’s polishes and I never reach for them in the spring and summer time. Both of the Natural Code by Lumene polishes I bought last holiday season but I didn’t get to use Dark Sparkle at all. That’s what you get when you have so many polishes to choose from.

My Konad stamping polishes

My Konad stamping polishes

As I’m steering away from doing nail art, having six Konad stamping polishes is a bit much. At first I only got rid of the forest green stamping polish as it was the most difficult one to match with other polishes. After a while, I decided to also get rid of the pastel purple one because it doesn’t show up over darker colors as well as the white does and over lighter colors it doesn’t show up at all.

So that is it! Those were all of my colored nail polishes! Since taking the pictures and writing posts I have gotten rid of some more polishes and for the most part I have been good at not buying new ones. I bought one in May and last week on my holiday to Mallorca I bought one full sized polish as well as a mini OPI set. I will show them to you after I show you my base and top coats and treatments. As of now, August 7th 2016, my nail polish collection consists of 86 full sized bottles of nail polish and six mini OPI nail polishes.
