Sorry, this post is a little bit late. For some reason I have been taking a couple of months where I have not been uploading as much. However, I did take the markings at the start of the month which is why some of them may be a little bit lower now than the line. If you have not read my introduction you can read it here .I have also linked the first update. In short, I want to see how many nail polishes I can get used up this year. Nail varnish is something that I have tons of and never seem to be able to get down. I have not purchased .any new shades in the longest time now because I am trying to use some up. This is something that I did in 2020 and managed to use a fair bit of nail polish. On to the update I am proud of some of the progress which I have made this month.
The newest polish which I have is the Essie Mini In Smooth Sailing. This is a polish that I have not used this month at all however, the picture is showing lower than my line. This is one that I am going to make sure I try and use in the next couple of months. I like this one on my toes and this is something that is going to look great when I have flip-flops on. I did not reach for this one as much because I had used it so much the month before. It is not because I am not loving this colour. For sure, I am not worried that I am not going to finish this polish at all.
The other mini which I have in this project is the Ciate Main Stage. This is one that I have managed to use this month after not using it for a couple of months. I think this is because the weather has changed a bit and I wanted to rock this shade. This is one that I have noticed that does not chip too much. I would say that there is now about 25% of the polish used up. I am hoping again this is one which I am going to finish up in a couple of months’ time. This does not worry me because it is a beautiful shade that is going to be perfect for the summer months. Usually on my toes or my fingers.
The next shade which I have been loving is the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Sugar Plum. I think this is one of my favourite nail polish in the project at the moment. Maybe because this is as we have had some sunshine so I have been wanting some of the summer shades. Rather than spring. I would say there is just half of the polish left. This is one that I have found super easy to wear I usually have it on my fingernails. I think this is because I have found that it does not chip super easy. For sure this is one that I would repurchase if they still make it. That is how much I do love this shade. Again this is one that I can see myself using up completely before the end of the year. I hope to be honest to use this up before the end of the summer months.
The shade which I can see been the next one out of the project is the Topshop Easy Breezy. This is a shade that is great for the spring months so this is one that I need to be using a little bit more. I know this is one which I could try and use in the summer months too. I would say there is more than half used up of this shade now. Sadly this is one which I will no longer be able to purchase because Topshop of course, is no longer an actual store in the UK. I think I have used this one a couple of times this month on a few nails. I think this is one which I am going to maybe try and completely use up in the next couple of months as well. Even though I am going to be sad to see this one leave my collection when it does.
The next shade which I have made a good amount of progress on is Rimmel 60 Seconds polish in Purple Rain. This is one that I have not really been using a lot however, this is one which I have made a lot of good progress on this month. I think I managed to use this a fair few times, to be honest. However, I have found that you do really have to use a fair few coats of this shade. I think this is one of the reasons why I do not reach for this shade a lot and I go to other ones. I think I have managed to use about 20% of this polish. That is amazing as this was brand new and this is not one that I really love. I am going to try and keep making progress on this shade throughout the year.
The final shade is the Barry M in Berry Ice Cream this has barely been used this month for some reason. I think this could be because I have so much progress on the other polishes. I know this is one which I am still going to get a lot of wear out of during spring and summer. This is the one which I some progress on in the next month. This is one which I usually team with easy-breezy, to be honest, I think I need to wear this on its own more. I have a lot more of this than I do the easy breezy. Again this is a polish which I am loving it does not chip super easy at all either which is something which I am always looking for. I managed to get a couple of days out of this one before this ends up chipping. I usually paint my nails a couple of times a week.
So for goals this month I want to try and use the Berry Ice Cream shade, I also want to use half of what is left of Easy Breezy. I think for this month I am going to leave it as a couple of goals. I think this then gives me time to play with a couple of the other shades and really allows me to make some progress on them as well.
