So I’m sitting here, looking at my un-tried polish pile (well,7 untried plus 3 yet unswatched), and trying to figure out how they’re gonna fit in my little shoe box of polishes. I’ve made a sort of unformal rule for myself that I can’t go over the shoe box capacity – if I buy a new polish and it doesn’t fit, then one has to go in order to make space. Take a lil gander at just how much space I have left:Hmm. Not so much, eh! There’s 58 polish in the box now that are part of my ‘Passionate Love’ collection (meaning I don’t want to part with ANY of them!), and it looks to me like I’ve only got enough room for maybe 5 more if I get creative – and the 10 untrieds aren’t even accounted for! Yikes. So clearly the little rule isn’t going to fly. But, I still want to make an effort to keep my stash reasonable, because I just feel like if I let it get too huge, I’ll be anxious that I’m not wearing them all etc. etc. etc….you know how it goes in my world! At the very least, I’ll feel much better about it all if I’m ruthless, and refuse to keep shades that I don’t LOVE and/or that just don’t look flattering on me.
Here’s where YOU come in.
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you might have noticed that I can be pretty tough when it comes to how I perceive shades to look on my skintone. So, I pulled all those shades that I’m not entirely sure about (12 in total) and I’m going to ask you to pick your top 5. Whichever lucky polishes have the most number of votes, will get to stay (for another year, at least).
(I never played the kind of dodgeball in school where your teams were picked by your classmates, and the outcast or least sporty of the group were left as the last choice….but this sort of feels like this to me lol)
Seriously though. These polishes have been kicking around the box, and I keep trying to make a decision on them but can’t seem to get ‘er done. As I hold all of your opinions in high regard, I’m leaving this one up to you. Swatches are below – this is no time to be nice: be honest, and be blunt. I can take it!
So, there they be. Do you see my dilemma? The fact of the matter is, none of these are that terrible – they all have redeeming features in one way or another, but at the end of the day – some of them have to go. If I’m not loving them, with the amount of polish I have and will continue to accrue, they just won’t get worn. It makes much more sense to give these to someone else who will love them properly (those that are ruled as ‘must go’ will be put up for swap). It’s gonna be done. A new year means a whole lotta new polish that will be coming my way – so I have to make room!
Pretty pretty please – help a gal out! Which 5 polishes do you think I should hold on to????
