Nell’s General Update

Ugh jeez, I just can’t seem to make things work at the moment, so instead of giving you a couple of little posts I thought I would update you on my life right now, and keep a couple of promises I made, so here we go:

1. Germany Manis

I promised those for the week end and then got swallowed by exam craze, so here is what I wore over the last three games:

This already made a cameo in my June Faves if I remember correctly and it is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls with a Flormar nail art polish in red on top and some black fine sharpie. I wore this for the USA game and I was surprised how much I liked it, next time I’ll have to try to use two different reds though, because the red v on our jerseys has a slight gradient to it.

For the Algeria and France games I wore this

It is my red, black and gold polishes, the same ones as in the last Germany mani installment plus Catrice Holo Manolo on thumb and pinkie. And supersticious me will paint this exact mani again tonight, because we won both of those games and the France game wasn’t all that bad.

2. Buying Ban
I realized recently that I buy way too many polishes, wear them once and then never think of them again. Pretty wasteful. So my plan for the near future is to really reduce me collection even if it hurts and only buy very very selectively , as in polishes that have something truly special about them. I don’t need all those, they are weighing me down and I really would love to just finish a color polish (not black because that I will finish anyway). Let’s face it when you are in the nailpolish biz long enough you mostly run into repetitions of polishes you already have or ones that are only a shade or two different. They will continue to tempt me but I hope I can stay strong. What about indies? None of those either! I really need to sort out my priorities first before I go back to buying polishes.

3. Anything else?

I am currently in the process of re-organizing my life (you can follow that process on my personal blog if you like). I realized I need a plan that I can tick off for everyday or I will continue to swim through my life instead of getting a safe footing again. Of course this blog will be featured in the plans as well, I don’t want to mess this up again. I may go back to posting NotD’s from my phone, this way I hope they won’t build up like they did recently, instead I am getting them out right away.
Also I moved my polish collection into my IKEA Helmer and it is using up about 1.5 drawers, major wake up call that I tell you! The Helmer is great for storing polishes, even the taller ones like OPI fit in perfectly.

This is it for now. I will schedule the next NotD, also there is a nail haul in our shared future (the last one for a while, hopefully) and then I am off to get back to studying! 

Read y’all soon!
