Project Update: January 2017

January was a success in some ways and a failure in other ways. I managed to use up two polishes but didn’t use many of the polishes I picked for the main project. The reason for the latter is that I mainly concentrated using the polishes I wanted to use and most of them weren’t in the current project. I’m not to worried about this, though, because it’s only the beginning of the year and because I did manage to use up two polishes.

I am worried about the amount of polishes I bought in January, though. I allowed myself to buy some in the beginning of the month because I hadn’t bought any at the end of the year. And then I saw some really good offers on nail polish and some interesting looking polishes, so I bought some more. So now, the total number of polishes in my collection is exactly 100. I didn’t want to reach that number again, since I got below it already, so it makes me feel a bit disappointed in myself. However, I can get below 100 just by using up one polish and by refraining from buying new ones for a while.

In the picture below, you can see the two that I used up, which are Depend 255 and OPI Look at My Bow!. The only other polish I used that was in the project was Mavala Candy Apple.

Project #2 has 14 polishes in it and I used one of them last month. These polishes are the ones I used only on my toes last year and the goal is to use them on the fingers this year.

Project #3 has sixteen polishes, some are the same as in project #2. Here I also used only one polish this month. These are the polishes that I bought last year but only used once. This project helps me decide whether I need to keep these polishes in my collection.

I succeeded in using both of my textured polishes once this month as was the plan. OPI Magazine Cover Mouse I used three times, actually. I decided to add Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop to this category as well because it might be difficult for me to use up otherwise.

All in all, January was a success but I’m pretty pissed at myself for buying so many polishes that it mars the progress I made. I could possibly compensate by not buying any polishes in February, so maybe I will do that!

That’s all folks!
