I can not believe that we are half way through the year where the hell has time gone. It does not seem 5 minutes since Troy was born and of course, that is now 6 months ago. Anyway the thing your here to read it is my update for project polish. If you do not know what project polish is. It is a challenge where you try and use up as many nail polishes in a year. I have started with 6 and when I finish a shade I roll a new one into the project. If you have bit seen any of my updates before here is a link to the intro, update 1, update 2, update 3,,update 4 and update 5.
I do think that I did make some good progress this month I think it was one was really steady. I think for the first time I managed to use every single shade in my project. This is a first for me this may have been because I have done manicures which have included two shades this month as well.
The first shade which I have made that much progress on I have actually managed to finish. Is the Essie Mini in Full steamahead. I think it was actually lower than I marked it last month anyway but I have used this a couple of times and it is all gone. It was that empty even the ball which is in polishes came out. I have loved using this shade since I rolled it in it is a great shade for the spring time. This I think is a shade Essie no longer make but I am sure I have similar colours in my collection should I want them. I am just glad to have another polish completely finished up now.
Due to finishing the mini Essie I have decided to roll in another. The shade which I have chosen is Mojito Madness. This has been in my collection way to long and I do not think I have actually ever use it. I am going to roll it in as completely new. It is a completely grass green colour and this is one which I think is going to be great for the summer months. I am thinking that I might be able to get it completely gone in a few months. For sure this is one which I am looking forward to rocking on my nails.
I have used the Barry M rose gold glitter I think a couple of times. Usually I have been doing this on my ring nails which means that I have not had a lot of use out of this shade. I have not had to make a new mark. I think I have now used about half of this bottle which is amazing for a glitter. Slowly I am getting through this shade maybe by the end of the year this shade will be gone.
For the Kelly Brook shade which I think I have used once this month. I have not been able to make a mark because the last one I made was way too thick. It is still a shade which I am not obsessed with I think this is because of the way it chips on my finger nails. So this basically ends up becoming a shade which I only really want to use on my toes. For this reason it is going to take so long for me to get through this maybe by the end of the year it will be out of my collection.
The next shade which I used once on it’s own and once with the Essie full steam ahead shade is the Ciate Pepperminty. This is a shade which I am glad I rolled in and getting some use out of. It is almost a Tiffany blue shade. I have not been able to make another mark this month because it slightly went up due to me having to put in some nail polish thinner. There is still about half of this mini left which is great since it was brand new when I rolled it in. I think with the amount I keep reaching for this shade a couple of months and this will be out of my collection.
The next shade which I have made some good progress on. Is the Rimmel cocktail club shade in Hawaiian punch. I haven’t actually got around to marking it yet. It is now just at the top of the sticker. I think I used this twice in the month and actually loved how it looked on my nails. For some reason I do not think this shade is going to be hard to use in the summer I find myself reaching for it. I am proud of how much I have managed to use this month. I find you have to only have to apply a maximum of two coats of this shade. So naturally you don’t use it as fast.
The next shade I have to update you on is the Essie bikini so teeny polish. This is one which has been in from the beginning. I want to say that I have used about half now of the overall polish. This is one which I used once on my toes I am still not obsessed with the colour after I for some reason told myself it looked like blue tac. I wish I could get over this and manage to get some good progress on this shade.
Even if I only use it once a month it is better than not using it and not getting any progress anywhere.
Anyway on to the goals which I have set for the month of July. I want to use every single shade which is in the project this month. This means that each polish will have a slight amount of progress at least. I would like to use the ciate pepperminty shade up completely. This is going to be a challenge but I like a challenge. I would also like to make a huge dent in the mojito madness. The green is so wearable right now I want to make noticeable progress in this shade since it is brand new. I also want to really finish this shade off before the end of September. As to me it is a summery shade.
What shades have you been rocking on your nails recently?
