Project Update: November

Another month has gone by and it’s time to show the progress!

I managed to finish three nail polishes completely as well as one base coat and top coat in November. You can see them in the photo below.

Isn’t it relaxing to look at empty nail polish bottles? It is to me :D

I finally had the heart to finish Golden Rose 120. It was a very lovely shade and even though I found the Essence nail polish in Pink Parrot that is similar, it is not the same. I will miss this polish but I think I will be OK.

I also managed to use up Natural Code by Lumene’s Rosy Gold. This was easier to use up, since it had a thicker consistency and because it wasn’t a favorite.

Color Club’s Holiday Splendor I actually used up by painting Christmas ornaments with it. This polish used to be one of my favorite polishes and I even mentioned it in the post where I showed some of my favorites at the beginning of the year. When I wore it in November, however, I felt like I didn’t want to show my nails when I had it on. Is still liked the color, though, so I wanted to come up with another way of using it, so I could still enjoy it.

My collection of base coats decreased by one as I used up the Essence base coat that supposedly seals peeling nails. It probably worked, too, but it was very thick and got even thicker towards the end making it difficult to use. For that reason, I wouldn’t buy this again.

I also used up the Poshé super-fast drying top coat. It really did dry the manicure just as fast as Seche Vite, but it smudged nail art a bit.

Next I will show you the progress I made with the other polishes in the project.

The lowest line shows where the polish was at the end of November because otherwise it would be difficult to see the progress, since the lighting isn’t the best this time of year.

These are the six polishes I used in November besides the ones I used up. I decided to concentrate on a few polishes so that I could possibly use up a couple more before the end of the year, so that’s why I only used six other polishes. I used both of the Depend polishes several times last month and hopefully I can finish up one of them this month. I haven’t decided which one I’m going to concentrate on, yet.

I used up my own mixture called Evening Sky last month and tried to make it again, not fully succeeding, though. It’s not quite as dark of a purple as I would like it to be, but it will do for now.

As far as the other project I had left goes, I completed it! At the beginning of November, I had three polishes left that I had not touched this year and I managed to use all of them last month. So now I can concentrate on using up one, possibly two polishes in December.

I already have some projects in mind for next year but I will reveal them once we get closer to the new year. I will also be doing some statistics for this year and will post them here, because that’s what I like to do.

Until next time!
