Less Mess: I May Have A Slight Nail Polish Addiction...

I like to think that I'm pretty good at keeping my shopping habits in check, but then the other day I pulled out my nail polish collection and was quickly overwhelmed by what I saw. My once well kept nail polish container was almost quite literally bursting at the seams. You see, here's the thing. I love nail polish but I have a tendency to choose the same colors over and over again. Knowing this, I knew I had too much and that it was time to cut down. 

Around August of last year, I did this same thing but cut down my two bags of nail polish to one. I figure each, I'll get rid of a little more and a few years later I'll have a carefully curated nail polish collection. Granted, I could do this all at once but I'm incredibly indecisive and always think "what if I want that later." 

There are a few nail polish brands that I tend to gravitate towards: Sinful Colors, Zoya, and Essie. I have found that these polishes work best for my nails and the type of work that I do. When I was working for Disney, I wasn't allowed to paint my nails so I concentrated on colors and brands that would last forever on my toes. However, once I quit Disney it opened up a whole new set of doors for me. I still choose Sinful Colors, Zoya, and Essie over everything else however the color selection I have is a little limited. I found that I don't have a good red (my old one exploded in my suitcase while traveling once), so that's on the list of colors to get. 

Are there any colors that you're dying over that I should get?

    1. I honestly didn't really start getting into nail polish until I joined a sorority in college. Throughout high school I danced, so I really couldn't have my nails a fun color for a lot of the time. Thank you for taking the time to comment. xx
