Project Update: March 2017

The month of March was successful in one way and not so successful in other ways. I managed to cross over several polishes in projects number two and three but I wasn’t able to use up any polishes in my main project. In fact, I sort of forgot what polishes I wanted to concentrate on. Also, I was weak and bought five (!) new polishes in March and I compensated this buying by getting rid of some polishes. I realized that it is ridiculous to first buy and then get rid of stuff to compensate, so I hope I will be able to limit my buying of polishes for the rest of the year.

Like I said, I had sort of forgotten which polishes were in the main project so I was all over the place last month. I used several of the polishes I want to use up this year but didn’t use one or two consistently, which would be better I you want to use something up. So at the end of the month I reminded myself which polishes I picked to use up at the beginning of the year and added a couple to replace the ones I have used up. So, these are the polishes I wish to use up next:

Make Up Store Asun, L'Oreal Confettis, Essie Blanc, Essie Lilacism, Essie A Crewed Interest, OPI Say Hello Kitty

The black lines that are the highest or the only ones on the bottle mark the place where the polish was at the beginning of the year. So, I have made some progress with these polishes. Asun, Confettis, Blanc and Lilacism have been in the mix from the beginning, A Crewed Interest and Say Hello Kitty are new. I have currently a challenge going on, where I use one single polish until it is used up completely. This time the polish I’m using is L’Oreal’s Confettis. I have had to add some clear polish in the bottle because all the base seems to have disappeared, so using it up takes a little longer than I anticipated. The good thing is that I can use all kinds of polishes with it since it is a glitter polish, so at least the color of the manicure changes each time I use it.

As I was going through my collection once again, I decided that Orly’s Mermaid Tale is no longer essential in my collection. I have owned it for many years now but I have always found it difficult to pair the polish with others. Since I still liked how it looked, I didn’t want to sell it but use it in a different way, so I covered a page in my Wreck This Journal with the polish and used it up. I also managed to use up my Trind Keratin Nail Restorer.

Project number two, the polishes I only used on my toes last year, went pretty well last month, I used five polishes from this category and sold one of them (Picture Polish Enchanting). I have five more polishes to use in this category.

Bourjois Turquoise Block
Chanel April
Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop
Depend 393
Essie Cute as a Button
H&M Gumdrops
H&M Coral Road
OPI 5 Apples Tall
OPI OPI Red
OPI Small + Cute = <3
OPI Spoken from the Heart
OPI Super Cute in Pink

Rimmel Cocktail Passion

Project number three went equally well as number two; I used five of the polishes and sold three of them (Depend 481, Mavala Freesia and Essie Take Me to Thread). There are still eight more polishes to use of the ones I bought last year but only used once last year.

Bourjois Turquoise Block
Depend 393

As far as the three polishes go, which I’m to use once every month, well, that didn’t go so well. OPI’s Kiss Me at Midnight I traded with a friend because I didn’t see myself wearing it again (I got a red polish in return) and OPI Magazine Cover Mouse and Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop didn’t end up on my nails at all in March.

I’m hoping to use up one to three polishes in April, let’s see how it goes!

Have a great spring!
