And those are only my nudes-pinks-reds! I love the concept of a nail polish graveyard. I’m doing mine a bit different from Tati/glamlifeguru. I’m weeding out polishes that I don’t wear enough to keep and ones that are very similar in color. I need to cut down my collection to the amount of makeup a normal person needs or somewhat normal. Either way, some of these are almost empties so I won’t be able to use them for long. I’m going to be painting my nails again hopefully. I will probably do an updated post next year, because if it doesn’t dry quick then it has no place in my stash.
Let’s get to it:
These are all of my pink colors. I am grouping them together in similar colors and deciding which ones I will be keeping and the ones that I will be giving away. Danielle if you want any of these, let me know. The rest I will be bringing to work and letting the women there pick what they want.
These are my nude colors and I am only keeping Sweat Dreams. It is the only one that is flattering on my hands. It’s a pretty pale shell pink.
I couldn’t part with any of these colors. The OPI is a texture polish, ZOYA is a nice pink creme, and the NYC is a shimmering pink. They are not alike. They are just in the same color family. I need to keep them!
I chose to keep Bubble Gum Pop and Lauren. One is a brighter, bolder pink and the other is more muted in color. The two middle ones were very similar to the two that I already chose. I wanted to keep them, but one girl does not need 4 VERY similar shades of pink.
I had to keep the blue-toned pink texture polish and the coral one. I don’t have anything similar to either one of these polishes.
I don’t have an orange nail color. This one has a hint of pink/peach in it. It’s unique.
I am keeping Julep, because it is a pink-red. I will keep the OPI. I love texture polishes. They dry quickly and I really like the look of them as long as they look neat and not messy. The Sinful Color is a very deep red that I don’t wear, so I won’t be keeping that. I will be keeping the Megalast. I love a red pedicure.
The dark red shimmer formula didn’t work well the first time I tried it, but I’m willing to give it another shot. The only one I’m giving away is the dusty rose. I never reach for this color. I don’t think I ever actually tried it either.
Of course, I kept the texture Cinderella Glass Slippers color on the end. Love <3. Avon and Wet N Wild are very similar to the Rimmel, so I said goodbye. I’m keeping the Sation one since it is a deeper metallic blue.
The dark blue and the one in the middle, I am giving away. I love the Robins Egg Blue on the end and the cool Funky Fingers color with black “sprinkles”. I love the color Periwinkle, so the Sinful Shine is staying as well.
All of my glitters are staying. The Selena Gomez and Katy Perry OPIs are halfway empty. I’ll be sad when I use them up. 😦
All of my purples are staying as well. Glitter and purple are my two favorite colors. EVER.
I have to keep the gold shatter, because that is a cool effect to have. The Confetti is a true gold color and the Nailtini is more of a rose gold. The TCW is very similar to the Nailtini, so I’m giving that one away.
The only color that I am throwing out is the yellow one. I don’t think anyone would want that color. I’m keeping the rest off these.
So, the total that I am weeding out of my collection is 12 polishes and I am keeping 34. I cannot believe that I had 46 polishes! I am happy that I was able to get rid of 12. I will be continuing this series in the future with Lip products next! Press Like if you want to see another installment in the series!
