Today I'm going to show you just how much progress I've made in the final instalment of my year-long Project Polish series. Don't expect miracles though - I haven't finished anything!
Here are the polishes I haven't used yet:
I almost put Borrowed & Blue (2nd from left) into my giveaway basket after the one & only time I used it as it was rather streaky on the first coat. It sort of levelled out after the 2nd, but a good dose of top coat made it look reasonable (albeit with some visible nail line underneath) + a bit of glitter in the form of Reflections (below photo, right) thrown over the top didn't go astray.
As mentioned in my last post, even though I hate sheer polishes, I can't quite bring myself to hate Pink Champagne (2nd from left). I might've only used it once on my nails so far, but I have used it a fair bit on my practise wheel, coming up with nail art ideas left right & centre.
I've absolutely fallen in love with Sea Fog (2nd from right). It's a perfect mid-grey & an excellent colour for winter. Will be using that one again as soon as I use the 3 I haven't used yet.
I know I mentioned that I've removed Royal Navy from the project in my last post (and if I didn't, SPOILER ALERT), but I've also removed Zoya's Carmen because I'm still feeling iffy about it. In certain light and certain dress it looks good enough, but I'm unsure whether or not it's completely flattering on me - I think I'm more a fan of blue/pink-based reds, as opposed to neutral reds that lean a bit warm like Carmen - plus the thinner formula chips easily & shows up nail outline, which irks me. I'm still keen to try more Zoya polishes though, but will definitely have to invest in their top & base coat when I go to the States. I hope that'll make a difference.
I've also decided that I'm not going to replace the 2 polishes I've removed from the project since I really want to focus on the 10 remaining. I think that'll be enough to keep me occupied until I go away/end this edition/end the entire project.
I'm happy enough with my progress so far. I know I've said this at almost every update thus far, but I do feel I've made more of a conscious effort to paint my nails (this edition more so than ever) & not have my bottles sit there begging me to use them. Sure, I could do better; but let's face it, I've been a lazy moo with this the entire way through, I'm not likely to change any time soon. ;o)
