One of my goals here is to try to avoid some of the blogging cliches - things like apologising for lack of content, complaining about being busy, etc but I have to say I've been a little uninspired of late. After 325 posts (this is 326), it gets rather challenging to come up with something new. There's only so many times I can do glitter mosaics - well, that's not true, I love them but I don't want to wear out their welcome. As a result, my posts have dropped off. I've still been doing my nails but not in a way I feel needs showing. In an effort to haul myself out of my blogging funk, I swatched my entire collection. Yep, on these lovely things. It's helped me see what I have stashed away and I should get back to posting more. The Reddit Weekly Challenge seemed like a good place to get back into it so let's take a look at my interpretation of "Blue".
My collection doesn't even come close to fitting in one Helmer. That's one thing I learned from my swatching. Secondly, I have a TON of blues. So much so that I was able to pull 24 different shades just from the Helmer alone and it turns out they look awesome dotted together. To start with this mani, I added two coats of a white Orly polish that I cannot remember the name of >.<. Google is not even helping me! Anyway, it's a reasonable white polish with a blue shimmer that doesn't really show up on the nail. Next, I took each of my 24 blue polishes and added two dots of each to each nail. And yes, I am showing off my one and only Chanel polish. The result kinda looks like an aquatic version of camouflage but that's ok, I'm into that.
The Verdict: I may need a manicure but you'll never notice because I have 25 different nail polishes on, mhwhahahahahahhah! Orly Sweet Peacock is still a standout for me, even though OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It! comes close. If there are any particular polishes you want to know the names of, let me know in the comments, I should be able to find it.
